“Oh to go a-wandering...!”

published 28/08/2004

ProToo many to mention

Contratoo few to worry about

HOW MANY TIMES A YEAR DO YOU TRAVEL? Not nearly enough. Between full-time work, and a nearly-new mortgage, and the vagaries of bank-managers and stay-at-home boyfriends there are always compromises to be made. What is travel? How far do I have to go from my front door for it to count as...

ProFar, far too many to mention

ContraSo many places, so little time.....

This is a subject very near and dear to my heart, and when I saw this challenge I couldn't resist. Thanks to Malu for inventing this one. By way of background for those who don't know me, I'm an Australian who's been living in London the last 3 years. We plan on staying another 2-3 years or so...

“ My knapsack on my back”

ProA huge world to explore

ContraNot enough time off work, not enough money

HOW MANY TIMES A YEAR DO YOU TRAVEL? What are we counting as travel here? Does a weekend in the UK count or are we talking foreign travel of at least a week? To me, it's all travel. From the moment I leave the house till the second I unlock the front door it's traveling. I love the whole...

Pro So Many Places,..

ContraSo Little Time

HOW MANY TIMES A YEAR DO YOU TRAVEL? I would say on average 2-3 times a year, as a "holiday". I have always done a lot of short UK breaks and stuff and it would be impossible to count those. I find work is terribly inconvenient, it gets in the way of travel. For a long time though, I travelled...

Contra........and the behind

Q: How many times a year do you travel? A: There are no hard and fast amounts, but if 2003 was anything to go by, quite a lot really. We kicked off with New Year in New York, February half-term (Ruth’s a teacher) in Bilbao and San Sebastian, Easter in Morocco, June Half Term in North Norfolk, and...

ContraNOT ENOUGH TIME AND MONEY TO SEE EVERYWHERE

oh I'm excited, this is my favourite pastime, travelling. don't get me wrong, I haven't travelled the world or gone back packing or even gone somewhere non touristy, but I have been abroad quite a lot of times and get depressed if I can't afford to. When I'm at work even though I work in the...

“Travelling lite”

published 07/12/2003

Pro “I’m out here a thousand miles from my home….

Contra“….walking a road other men have gone down.”

Yet another challenge from MALU, but travel like literature is dear to my heart, so why should I grumble? Perhaps because it’s also dear – my wife and I spend more on travel than on food or housing or entertainment or even drink – but that’s just a function of the way we go about it. We could...

ProI love travelling

ContraIt doesn't come cheap!

Q: How many times a year do you travel? A: It depends what you mean by travel! I try to have at least 2 holidays abroad each year, plus a few weekends away and short breaks in the UK. As I still live at home and so does my other half, we are enjoying ourselves while we can and going away on as...

So I saw this, and thought well this is a challenge I must do!! Q: How many times a year do you travel? A: As many as I can – Ok a lot of my travel is work related, but that doesn’t mean you don’t get to see places. I always make a point of getting out, seeing things. This year has been a bit...

Contrasitting around in airports and traffic jams

Q: How many times a year do you travel? A: For pleasure we try to make it at least 4 times a year, although for business in the last year I have totted up well over 50 times. I must admit that the novelty of packing, sitting around in airports, staying in nice hotels and eating out in fancy...

Progetting away from it all

Contrahaving to return to it all

Q: How many times a year do you travel? A: Until just recently I was confined to school holidays, which meant to have to pay high season fares. Usually I travelled during the semester vacation week, during easter week, two weeks in summer and the christmas holidays. In the near future I´ll have a...
