After visiting Edinburgh, Glasgow, St Andrews, Inverness, Loch Ness, and Eilean Donan, Gavin and I finally made it to the Isle of Skye, perhaps the most hotly anticipated location on our journey!
It did not disappoint.
One day after work my father and I scoured the cellars for a prime vintage of Belgian beer, with the intention to share it outside in our woodland. An especially aged bottle of the Cuvée De Ranke from Brouwerij De Ranke was retrieved from the darkness. With a pair of Leffe glasses in hand, we strode forth to quench our curiosity and our thirst!
The final stop on our travel day to Cambridge was in Oxford, where we had a round in The Eagle And Child, famous for being the preferred watering hole of the Inklings! If you don’t think you know who they are, you might be mistaken, for the Inklings included none other than J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and a few other guys that I can forgive you for not knowing.
Back in early March, I went on a journey to visit my third cousin and his mum on Guernsey! Shortly after returning to England, I dropped my iPhone in the toilet, and lost all the photos I had taken. Thankfully my relations had taken a select few photos during my visit, so I have been able to cobble together a report that doesn’t rely solely on words.
On May 24th my parents arrived in England. Shortly after their arrival, we made our way to the village of Wingfield, near Bath, where we spent our first three nights. After a long sleep, Day 2 was spent exploring Bath, specifically the Roman Baths, and after an aborted attempt to see Bristol, we visited Glastonbury Tor, town, and thorn.
My parents have arrived in England for a 3 week tour around the country, and so I will do my best to keep this blog up to date with remarks upon some of the more interesting drinks and adventures that we find ourselves on. Such as that flat tyre 10 miles from Stonehenge.
Yesterday I walked 3 miles North from my house to the village of Haxby, where I stopped in at the local pub for some weightlifting. 20+ ounce weights to be approximate.
