Tweet One of the places I was desperate to visit during our week in Italy was, of course, Venice. The City of Love, made up of over 100 small islands, separated by canals, and linked by bridges, is known the world over for romance, gondolas, masks, ice creams, and the original Harry’s Bar – the […]
Tweet I’ve just watched that video – the one that has, ironically, gone viral today, about how much we lose from our lives by being constantly attached to laptops, phones and tablets in the name of “social” media. And yes, blogging can be included in that too. We miss so much, and I am sure […]
Tweet Another guest post from Ben, and with a snippet from Josh too. This was our walk up to Walla Crag yesterday. Josh: Walking to Walla Crag was really fun. We had a really nice picnic and found two geocaches. The view was very good, and I liked the waterfalls by the bridge. […]
