Status: New - Compiled by acclaimed historian Fergus Fleming, The Traveller's Daybook invites you to cross oceans, deserts, mountains and ice-caps and embark on a tour of the world in 366 quotations. This anthology ranges widely across time and place, from Christopher Columbus' 'discovery' of the West Indies in 1492 to Wilfred Thesiger's wanderings in Arabia's 'empty quarter' in the 1940s. Covering many exotic destinations, each quoted extract is accompanied by a brief commentary that introduces the writer and the context of the excerpt. Covering the whole calendar year, including leap years, these 366 journeys are often lyrical, witty, tragic or bizarre - but always entertaining.

I have 2 children with an 8 year age gap, so finding something that appeals to both has become increasingly difficult!

Situated on the West Cumbrian Coast, the Solway Estuary...
Advantages: Location and scenery and activities Disadvantages: Having to take your own towels
...HARTSOP HALL COTTAGES
I have now been to the Lake District for my annual family holiday twice, the first time in mid winter with snow on the ground, and the most recent one in August.
The summer holiday was excellent, in excellent surroundings, having spent a week at Dovedale Cottage, which is one of two cottages at Hartsop Hall Cottages. The cottage itself is excellent and highly...
