      Initialsing the trip to Amsterdam in January. Or rather my brother is, trading a 7am flight for a lunchtime one for £25 more.

      Decided to have a 1 trip this holiday. Alas, it was more of a slip on a rug in my flat. Got friction burn on arm the coffee table I glanced

      so I remembered today that I'm on holiday next week. Swift trip to work done to get boxed off the stuff that was outstanding.

      Last 2 years, I've explored the UK but my brother's doing the world instead. Today he's off to Jordan.

        Isn't it dangerous there? Still, I admire him.

        It's one of the relatively few safe places in the Middle East and he's with a tour group that's had years of experience over there. Flight was 90 mins late leaving but arrived only 30 mins late.

      Today's the 40th anniversary of my 1st visit to MAN. Got false expectations of how busy it was as it was packed with diversions.

      So.. using my brother's patented "Streetview" test on determining trips, no longer off to Berlin in January but to Amsterdam instead

      Tale of the daytrip tape. 860+ miles on bus/train and 63 miles walked. On a scale of 1 to 10 on how tired I am, I think I'd say 13 or 14.

        A man after my own heart. I walk most days and do a 10-15 mile walk at least once a week, often more than once. I walk a minimum of four marathons every month of the year (spread over the month that is not a marathon in one go).

        I should have said a minimum of the equivalent of four marathons a month.

        I'm very impressed by that! The shortest walks were 2 lots of 5 miles which was Friday and Sunday, with London being on the Saturday. No point in exhausting myself before the big trip or the day before getting back to work.

        All fine. nothing noticeable extra security wise in the city centre apart from fencing down some of the roads down to the main tourist destinations. Got back home at around midnight

      3rd 4.45am departure from my flat for a daytrip. Not quite grasped the idea of having a relaxing week off.

      Day 1 of holiday. So... on a train at 6am to go to Blenheim Palace. Up 2 hours earlier than usual... asking myself why!

      Love my phone deciding to freeze, reboot and freeze in the reboot. 3rd straight day of waiting for the battery to drain to charge it back up

      2 overseas trips in prospect next year. To paraphrase JFK , I could say "I am a doughnut" and to the "homeland"

        no, my brother dropped it in conversation casually yesterday. The Peru trip was meant to be February but now September/October and Berlin 1st week in January. He said ts roughly £1500ish and £300ish respectively.

      54th annual family picnic done and dusted. Not for the 1st time, passers-by wanted to join in given the amount of food brought

        Sounds good. Why 54th? Is this a trans-generational event?

        It is. Started off with my mum and dad, one of my aunts and a family friend and got bigger...now it's a total of 23. Takes a bit of co-ordinating. The 40th got into the local press and the 50th saw Lyme Park erect a special marquee for us (all bar 1 have been there).
