England and Wales

posted by Cathy    9 Nov 2015   From England into Wales, AND Travelling in South Wales and England

We travelled across England towards Wales for this leg of our journey. We had joined Britstops so mostly used that to choose our campsites for the night during our UK trip. The highlights were the medieval city of Wells (Bishops Palace and Cathedral) in England and the town of Chepstow in Wales (Castle Ruins and Priory).

The Wye River forms the border between England and South Wales so we move back and forth between the two countries as we explore the Wye River Valley - an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. Our trek up the mountains of the Brecon Beacons National Park as well as the various waterfall walks were the highlights for us in South Wales. The Chedworth Roman Villas were our pick for our travels in this section of England.

From France back into England

posted by Peter    19 Oct 2015    Rouen in France to London in UK AND England - London and Bath

Our first stop after Paris is the historical city of Rouen which was one of the highlights of this section of the trip. We stumbled upon The Blockhaus while investigating what the icon on our map entitled 'Engineering Monument' meant. Glad we did as this was another 'must visit' spot if you are interested in WW11 history. We took the ferry from Calais to Dover and ambled down the English coast before visiting London for our first day of 3 planned days in the UK capital. A hop on/hop off River Cruise gave us a great introduction to the main sights. London was great so glad that we will be coming back!

The next web album is a little out of order as a week elapsed between submitting our application for a Russian visa while in London the first time and going back to London to pick up our visa and passports. This album brings that 2nd London trip forward and includes our day in Bath as well. There is plenty to see and do in both London and Bath and enjoyed both trips. Highlights were the Tower of London and the Roman Baths. We will be back in chronological order from next album with the missing week as we head into Wales..

What's this travel site about?

  • We love to travel and want to share our photos and experences with you.
  • Are you planning similar trips and holidays? The information on this site will be particularly useful for those who are planning a roadtrip, around Australia, New Zealand or UK and Europe.
  • Our home base is Queensland so we never let a holiday go by without trying somewhere new like a houseboat around Moreton Bay, sailing a catamaran around the Whitsunday Islands, camping and bush walking through rainforests or 4WD-ing at Fraser Island. Please Explore our Aussie Holiday site...

Aussie Holidays

  • Discover Australia by following our real life adventures as we take every holiday opportunity to see as much of Australia as we can. Our motto is to see Australia first and we have done our best to live up to that.
  • We love travelling, not only to the usual tourist destinations but also off-road to some of the more inaccessible and spectacular scenic areas that Australia has to offer.
  • This country is very diverse and we aim to see it all. Our longest adventure was a road trip around Australia for nearly 7 months. NOT LONG ENOUGH! We are already planning the next one which will be 12 months.

Overseas Holidays

  • Australian holidays are the focus of this website BUT of course we don't just holiday around Australia.
  • We have most recently been on a cruise around the Pacific Islands of New Caledonia, to Vanuatu, Fiji, New Zealand, Alaska and Canada.
  • In 2015 we set off on the BIG TRIP to UK and Europe for 12 months in a Motorhome.
  • Armed with a digital camera we always take WAY too many photos so culling them down to put up on the website sometimes takes a while. Check regularly for TRIPS AND PHOTOS .
