Our Travels

UK and Europe, 2016

Join Rona, Mark and I as we travel the United Kingdom during the month of September 2016. On 8th October, we will take an overnight ferry to Amsterdam to begin a whirlwind trek across Europe. Using rail passes, we will be visiting Amsterdam, Paris, Milan, Florence, Venice, Zurich, Munich, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest.

Big Adventure, 2014

In September 2014, Rona and I made our first trip back to England since leaving there as youngsters. This blog follows our journey through England, Wales and Scotland, followed by a week in Northern Italy. It was written as a blog, and therefore is presented back to front - the first page is the last place we visited and the last page is the first place.

Migrating to Australia, 1960

In June 1960, my family and I embarked on the journey of a lifetime when we migrated from Leeds, England to begin a new life in Audstralia. We had been granted Assisted Passage, in which the Australian Goverment allowed us to travel to Australia by ship at the cost of just ten pounds per person. We became what were known as Ten Pound Poms. This diary documents our journey.
