Samlesbury Hall

This is a house in the north of England built in the 1300s, now a popular 'museum' house, tourist attraction and event venue. This is where I found and bought the spinner's chair. It was cool, having lunch tucked back in a nook in the bar, then walking around the house, getting a sense of what it... Sign in to see full entry.

Bring provisions...

I just paid nearly $30 for two small trays of sushi at the Keflavik Airport outside Reykjavik. Ridiculous,but at least the sushi wasn't bad. It wasn't great, but far better than your average grocery store sushi. The sun is shining past light clouds and the temperature is ~7C which is ~42F, and windy... Sign in to see full entry.

Final Packing

In a couple of hours we are headed towards Manchester Airport. The flight from there through Reykjavik to Denver CO will take around 11-12 hours and at the end there will be no more 45 minutes to collect my luggage, get through Customs and meet the shuttle to Colorado Springs.

Hebden Bridge

Heptonstall and Hebden Bridge are two very old towns in the upper Calder valley, West Yorkshire, one at the top of one side of the vale, the other down by the river and canal. We drove down through the narrow old cobbled streets through Heptonstall, then a few miles further along, stopped a while in... Sign in to see full entry.

Then, once at the house in Whalley there was no wifi for this little notebook laptop I have instead of the huge and heavy laptop I usually have traveled with. My son in law saw it last time...

This time, I'm prepared

It never occured to me last time that on a trans-atlantic flight, they would not feed us. Apparently you have to fly 'comfort economy' to be fed, and as I flew 'discomfort economy' I had to pay for any food, selected from their limited menu, at their prices. This time, Im ready for 'em: I spent $8... Sign in to see full entry.
