Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Oxford

 Whilst walking The Thames path I stayed overnight in Oxford. The next morning before returning to the path I wandered around the city whilst it was free of crowds.
Keats described Oxford as the finest city in the world-it is full of old Gothic buildings, spires, towers, quadrangles, cloisters, groves etc and is surrounded with more clear streams than I ever saw together.

Judge for yourself.

  2. I am getting homesick ! I loved Oxford so much ! I stayed in the Belliol college for 3 days in a student's room, just great !
    Tomorrow I am off to the Lake Geneva with two friends ! 800 km to drive, but we do it in two days.
