Trearddur Bay, Holyhead, Wales

Wales Road Trip

Posted October 21, 2019 by Kidmoses

Our plan for the last day in England involved driving from Dorchester to Holyhead in Wales. We estimated about 8 hours of travel, including time for rest stops. Following the M5, the route would take us through Bristol, Gloucester, Birmingham, Chester, and Bangor before reaching our destination on the Isle of Anglesey. We had pre-booked a nice for the evening. A large, beautiful Georgian type home...

Oven 360 Entrance, Leamington, Ontario

Oven360 – Extra, Extra, Extra

Posted October 19, 2019 by Kidmoses

I tried a new pizza place, Oven360, in Leamington, Ontario last night. It opened recently. Probably in the last couple of weeks. We arrived around 7 PM. Driving up, the restaurant was unexpectedly crowded and patrons were lined up out the door. We decided to go in and have a look anyway. Surprisingly, the line moved quickly. The setup is similar to a Subway. You start at one end, place your order, and add toppings as you move down the line.

Stonehenge – Celebrating Solstice

Posted October 14, 2019 by Kidmoses

Stonehenge, the rock-forged monument in Wiltshire is an absolute must-see when visiting southern England. It should be on everybody's list. We booked our timed-tickets online two days before our visit. Timed-tickets are used to control the number of visitors to Stonehenge at any one time. One could just show up to purchase tickets (and many do), but pre-booking is the only way to guarantee entry on a particular day and time during tourist season.

A Day At Durdle Door (huh?)

Posted October 7, 2019 by Kidmoses

At the top of my list of things to do while vacationing in Dorset was visit Durdle Door along the Jurassic Coast of south-central England. This huge limestone arch with a hole in it was created towards the end of the last ice age. And some of the exposed rock along this coast dates from the Upper Jurassic era of 150 million years ago... Durdle Door is the most noteworthy landscape feature along the coastal stretch known as Jurassic Coast.

Thomas Hardy’s Cob And Thatch Cottage

Thomas Hardy’s Cob And Thatch Cottage

Posted October 2, 2019 by Kidmoses

Thomas Hardy’s cottage is a quaint, cob and thatch house that sits next to the Thorncombe Woods. Mostly, the cottage feels like it is in the middle of a gorgeous, fairy-tale forest. This is where Hardy was born in 1840 and lived until he was thirty-four. During this time, he wrote the classic novels Under the Greenwood Tree and Far from the Madding Crowd.

Learning To Drive In Brighton, England

Posted September 25, 2019 by Kidmoses

Having never been to England before and not wanting to drive in London, I decided to rent a car in Crawley, drive to the south coast and follow it west to the Dorchester area. Sounded like a better plan. We caught the train early enough in London and arrived in Crawley about 9:30 AM. In the rain. We grabbed a taxi to the car rental location. The car wasn’t ready when we arrived...
