Coming soon: Return to Paradise

It’s been nearly two years but I’ve been hoping to return to Paradise Lake Lodges and have another go at the huge carp in the lake, so here we are again, this time in a bigger lodge with hot tub and with my brother, sister in law and mother in tow. And obviously Sue of course! The site is under new management so stay tuned to see how they compare with our last stay which you can read about here.

Oops – So unorganised!

Just pointing one of my friends to our travel blog and I thought – it’s been so long that I can’t actually remember the website address!  So I went to check it and then thought “Where’s the link to my Ireland video?” – I haven’t put it up yet!  No wonder nobody has viewed the video!

So, many apologies, here it is – our first trip to Ireland – but definitely not our last.

Video review – Gulliver Land

It’s a little late for Easter but if you are looking for a nice day out with the kids this summer you won’t go far wrong at Gulliver Land.  Our grandkids just had the best day, which was part of a long weekend also pulling in our trip to the Harry Potter studio tour.

Maybe this short video will give you a taste of what’s in store for the little ones.

The Archives – A little piece of history

A long time ago, we visited our friends Jim and Marie in Vineland, New Jersey, and while we were there we visited Jim’s local fire station where he was a volunteer fire fighter.  One sunny day, we witnessed the Cumberland Country Fire Parade – a spectacular sight for any lover of fire engines!   For those who remember the parade, enjoy the moment.

World Traveller – The Archives

Hi – Well, 2019 is well upon us and I haven’t posted anything yet on the blog – which of course is a blogger “no,no” but sometimes you have to be patient, don’t you?  Over Christmas and into the new year I have managed to finish rescuing old video footage from holidays years gone past, and now I’m into the difficult job of editing it all back together.  Of course, the footage is in old 4:3 format, but surprisingly in good condition considering it is over 20 years old in some instances.

I’ll be publishing some of these memories under their own brand – World Traveller Archives.

Here’s a taste of what’s coming in the archives – this is our first trip to New York.  It is ironic that at the time, there were two uninteresting skyscrapers in the background in many shots, while we focused our attention on the popular sights of the empire state building and the Statue of Liberty.  If only we had known the infamy that was in store for those twin towers…
