It's as far north as I've ever been @umea2014

Sun time is beach time

Maintaining this healthy tan means spending as much time on the beach as possible. St Ives, in Cornwall, has miles of beautiful sand to enjoy.

Visiting the end, Land's End

For some reason, travelers have a strange fascination with the "most" - the most northerly, the most southerly or, in this case, the most westerly.

Cape Town just 6294 miles - who knew?

If you could imagine the Garden of Eden, would it look like this?

The Eden Project

2010 jun 06 cornwall trip img_5514

I am unashamedly enthusiastic about this place - it was fantastic. Us bokkies need as much natural habitat as is possible and preserving it is important.

I particularly liked seeing some of the plants that I grew up with back on the savannah.

Five years, and frankly, not much has changed

Stonehenge was one of the first places I visited when I arrived on England's mountain green. As we were in Wiltshire, we decided to drive past.

Five years and not much has changed. I guess you'd expect that.

Who wouldn't want to meet Postman Pat?

One of the more arbitrary attractions at Longleat is the Postman Pat village. As a longtime fan, I couldn't not visit Greendale for myself. My travel buddy loved it.

It's hard not to be impressed by Longleat, quite the little pile in the country.

It's a good thing that springboks and hippos get along in the wild or this might have gone disastrously wrong.

Spring sunshine at Leeds Castle

Well, the volcanic ash cloud means we're stuck in-country so we might as well enjoy the spring sunshine.
