My solo sightseeing tour continues…. Since Tuesday I’ve visited Gainsborough Old Hall, Hardwick (Old and New Halls) and Clumber Park.
It’s often struck me, when visiting National Trust-type places in the UK, that our aristocratic families do seem to have more than their fair share of oddballs adorning the genealogical tree….. The Wentworths of Wentworth Castle and Wentworth Woodhouse certainly had their moments….
It’s been a while since we’ve posted anything on Dossers’ Diary. Our only excuse is that we haven’t had much to say…. All that’s changing this weekend though as we set off on separate no holds barred adventures….
Our last few days in South Africa…. It’s been a great ten weeks: we’ve seen a lot and learned a lot. We had a relaxing time in the Cape Winelands, with Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and the Franschhoek Motor Museum our particular highlights.
A week on the west coast of South Africa – beaches, mountains, birds and fossils.
Wot no Internet? It didn’t seem worth getting a local sim card for five days in Namibia, so we went without. It was a nice reminder of how life used to be….. In terms of tourism, our main destinations in Namibia were the ghost town of Kolmanskop and the Fish River Canyon.
