Welcome, 2019. A special year. Fifty years ago, in June 1969, patrons of The Stonewall Inn in New York grew tired of yet another raid by the police. Gay, lesbians, bisexuals and mostly: transgenders, transvestites and dragqueens fought back. Those were the Stonewall Riots.
England’s Coast is a new booking platform designed to help visitors find their way on England’s many coasts. Funded by VisitEngland‘s Discover England Fund, it offers interactive videos highlighting the breadth of choice of activities and scenic beauty around this coastline.
I can confidently say out of all railway museums we’ve visited so far, the National Railway Museum (NRM) in York is the most impressive. With over 100 locomotives and over 300 other items of rolling stock on display over 20 acres (8.1 ha), it’s huge.
Planning a big rail trip is a cumbersome process, it all starts with finding inspiration about where to go.
At the end of my long weekend in London, where I stayed at InterContinental London – The O2 and undertook many fun activities, we wanted to return early to Belgium. Alas our Eurostar train got cancelled. What to do in this eventuality?
Recently I travelled from Brussels-Midi in Belgium to London St. Pancras in the United Kingdom with Eurostar. The EMU was the new Eurostar e320. I travelled in Standard Premier.
Getlink, formerly Eurotunnel, works on low-cost trains between France and the United Kingdom. It’s inspired by other low-cost rail links in Europe, Le Journal Du Dimanche (France) and De Standaard (Belgium) write. What are those continental examples?
Recently Steve and I spent a long weekend in London. Originally we were three to travel so we booked a ‘Studio Suite with Sofa Bed’ at the InterContinental London – The O2.
I sold my car. After nine years and after a significant financial setback I decided it was time to sell my car.
Sorry not sorry, I just can’t resist a railway museum. So when Danny told me to try out the Museo del Ferrocarril de Madrid Delicias, I did.
