The only August travel was a long weekend of partying in Bristol (one of my favourite UK cities) with friends.This blog was finally launched after 5 months of hard work and teaching myself how to use word press from scratch. Sh*t Just Got Real was my first post, which reflected that suddenly our upcoming adventure was becoming a realityAndy handed in his notice at work and we finished selling, giving away and storing our belongings, and put our Norwich house up for rent. We also spent hours working through our exit plan to ensure we had all loose ends tied up in The UK, a rough idea of our route to Cambodia and that we had the relevant visas sorted out.Selling belongings for long term travelI also spent much of the month caring for my Mum after she’d badly broken her arm falling off her bicycle. All in all it was quite a very busy and quite stressful month. At the end of August it was time to start saying farewell to our friends and family over a string of goodbye catch-ups and one final big leaving party. All great fun but also tinged with sadness!SeptemberAt long last we left the UK to travel, and to live and work abroad in early September.It started with a weeks villa holiday near Santanyi in Mallorca with my family, including my two little nephews. It was a gorgeous villa with a pool in a picturesque setting a bit bit out in the sticks. We had some time relaxing at the villa and a couple of day trips out to nearby beaches and towns. It was lovely to have that week with my family before we left Europe for the foreseeable future
On the train, it's not far to Oxford, or perhaps you'd like to pop over to Bristol or Bath for a day or two. There's also a lot to do in Birmingham, especially if you like shopping and good nightlife. It's also a two hour drive to Stonehenge, if you fancy a bit of a day out - although that's not really so cheap.So, to summarise - the cheapest you can probably do this is a Megabus to Birmingham (£2) then a bus into Stratford (£5.20). Find a cheap room on Airbnb (£35), try getting theatre tickets on the day, and try asking around to see if anybody has Birthplace tickets that you can borrow! Realistically, if you want to eat out, see a show and visit the houses, you're looking at something like:Breakfast: £3 (Yard of Ale)Lunch: £3 (Fresh and Funky)Dinner: £5 (Noodle Box)Theatre: £14 (restricted view)Birthplace Trust: £25Accommodation: £35 (assuming you just stay for one night)Getting in (from London): £7.20Total = £92.20.Not super-budget, but still a lot less than the average tourist will pay here.Of course, if you're really nice and can perhaps offer me accommodation/food somewhere else cool in the world, you promise to cook for me or teach me something interesting etc., I might be able to put you up here for free.... it's firstname.lastname@example.org... :)

On you day trip to Western Cork, the first stop is the historic port-town of Kinsale. In medieval times, the importance of Kinsale to Ireland's political strategy was such, that the neighboring hamlet of Cork, was described as being 'near to Kinsale' - a stark contrast to today's times, when it's exactly the other way round. Charles Fort - a 13th century star-shaped fort built to protect the port of Kinsale from French & Spanish invaders is the prime attraction. The guided tour by a member of the Office for Public Works is hugely informative & entertaining (the fabled Irish wit, yeah?). Much of Kinsale's decline as an important port is attributed to the sandbar in it's harbor. Cork was identified as a natural alternative and the rest, as they say, is history. Kinsale town is a charming little spec of culture and rural bounty. Schedule your trip to Kinsale on a Wednesday and be blessed by the weekly Farmer's Market, held on every Wednesday, right opposite the Tourist Office in town. There's great food, amazing juices, mouth-watering deserts and some absolutely amazing local life to be experienced in this market - do not miss for anything!

Day 9 (Blarney): We went from Kerry to Dublin back this morning via the Blarney Castle. We explored the castle for about a couple of hours, before returning to Dublin's fair city for our farewells and a quiet dinner at the Church bar in the night.Tips:1) Exchange some € and £ for trains/taxis at the local banks in your home country, but there are plenty of official/unofficial money exchange places all over London and Dublin, that offer a much better exchange rate.2) Get a London underground zone 1 and 2 all day pass (£8) every day that you travel within the city. It's the most economical way to explore the city and is valid even on the buses.3) In Dublin, try to book a tour which has airport drop-off/pick-up service. It'll save you €s for bus/taxi.What businesses did I use?Tour to bath and Stonehenge : The English BusTour of Southern Ireland : Paddywagon toursHotel in Dublin: The Townhouse of DublinAirlines : United (KC to London & Dublin to KC) & Aer Lingus (London to Dublin one-way flight)

With my brother’s help we formulated a list of places in and around England which were unique and were rich in nature’s bounty. Staring from the smallest village of England to a Birdland with the most unique species of birds, to the City of Bath which has been declared a World Heritage site, we had our itinerary all set up. Our base was in Bath and we used to hire a cab every alternate day and go and explore a particular district.
The last thing on our English trip was the city of Bath, holding the Roman Baths. Encasing aqua green waters in a rectangular pool, the Sacred Springs is one the four features of the Roman Baths, which were built underneath street level. Massive pillars etched with Roman figures, loom over the structure. The light drizzle created a mystifying aura, as we traversed into a dimly lit area known as the Grand Pump Room. Silver coins glistened through the rippling waters of the pool, which is now a wishing well for visitors. Slightly muffling the excited buzz around me, I closed my eyes, turned towards the well, and watched my coin camouflage in with the others into the clear waters.These are some of the attractions one must check out in England! During the time we went (mid-August), it was fairly cold, and almost always drizzling, so it’s best to pack and plan accordingly. When going in a group, transport and accommodations should be well arranged. Besides our tour bus, we traveled in taxis for nearby locations. I felt a bit drab at times in my sweats and jeans, while most others managed to dress their best almost always. Advisable to pack a few of your better outfits then! Just strap up, and do it the English way then!NOTE: A few images are taken by my friend, Claire Mosteller. It has been abbreviated as 'PC: CM.'
This city has been declared as a World Heritage site and it is historically very important. This is the place where we spent the maximum time so we explored it in and out. Bath is a place which is full of places which are of great historical importance such as the Jane Austen Centre, Thermae Spa- where you can lounge in the 2000 year old Roman Baths, the magnificent Royal Crescent, The Circus, Pulteney Bridge and Bath Abbey.
Bath is the first city in England to be designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Moving around, you realise why it is designated so. The tour organiser gave us an option to go inside to see the baths or just roam around for the same time out. The place looked so charming with the little shops..music & cobbled streets...outdoors were calling!! We did manage to get a peek at the roman baths from outside. The city is home to many art galleries, antique shops, theatres & Jane Austen centre.We grabbed a coffee & some muffins and went to a fudge shop to see how fudge is made. Walked around, window shopped at some cute shops, went to the indoor market & then relaxed listening to some street music. An hour just flew by. Bath is a place , we'd like to visit again.. maybe stay for a couple of nights & just soak in the place..
The town of Bath also lies a bit outside of London. We went here to check out the Roman Baths, the coolest part of this trip, in my opinion. Preserved for public baths through four main features, this historic site transports you to the Roman times. Water gushing in from various pools, and bubbling up to the surface of the sacred spring makes it so real...

My first experience of travelling outside India was when I went to UK to pursue an MBA and did not return for two years....
Most of the Cumberbatch-Freeman series is shot in Cardiff . “Steven Moff at, who is the producer of both Sherlock and Doctor Who decided to shoot in Cardiff . All the shots fi lmed indoors at 221 Baker Street are shot at a studio here. Most of the exterior locations are also within 20-30 miles of the studio in Cardiff because it’s just easier for the crew. They travel to London only if they need a very specific location,” says Michael.In the original stories, Mycroft is meant to live on Pall Mall, just opposite the Reform Club. In the BBC series, the exterior of the Diogenes Club is shot at 10 Carlton House Terrace, which used to be the home of the British Prime Minister William Gladstone. For The Blind Banker, the second episode of the BBC series, the makers shot a few scenes in the very touristy Trafalgar Square. “It’s very expensive to close down the Square during the day so these scenes must have been shot very quickly and with a bare-minimum crew. The crowd in the scene would be the regular public. If you look closely at the scene where Cumberbatch and Freeman walk up the stairs of the National Gallery, you can see the faces of members of the public who have recognised the actors.
BBC’s Doctor Who is a cultural phenomenon that is followed by millions of people in the world. If you are a die-hard fan of this fi ctional series, you have to go on The Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff , UK. It’s the Mecca for Doctor Who fans, showcasing a variety of props and merchandise from the show and tours of the filming location. You could also step into TARDIS, which won’t help you travel through space time but is still pretty cool.
