Aug 28, 2016 10:00 PM Adventure to Leeds Castle

Adventure to Leeds Castle Leeds Castle is only around 50 miles from central London and it is located in Kent as opposed to Leeds which is what you would think.

Whilst it is easy to jump in the car, we left early around 7.30 and cycled. I followed a route Google provided and went through Essex and crossed the Thames at Tilbury. I didn't even realise that there was a ferry service at this part of the river but it only take around 15 minutes and costs £3.50.

I checked out the tickets online the night before which saved 10% as I was due to pay £24.95.

It was a great location for all the family and was a really enjoyable day out. I took a picnic as there wasn't much shops in the area. I throughly enjoyed the day and need to find something else to do next yr as this was the last of the bank holidays before Christmas.

Wimbledon - I so love this time of year. I had a great day at The Championship. Yet another year I got Centre Court tickets really good seats.

There was so much rain which was in line with how much rain occurred the week before. So the schedule was up the spout, so the players I saw as a little different.

But none the less it was a fab day starting with a picnic on Henman Hill, then on to Central to watch Andy Murray.



May 31, 2016 10:00 PM Still not happy

Still not happy It always amazes me when people cheat and steal. We have a world whether people try to get ahead by any means necessary and that really is a crying shame.
The way I see it now I just bought a Skoda in Romania, or at the very least I'm part owner.
But to my fellow travelers I would be wary of renting a car from AMS in Bucharest as they will conspire against you or as they said "drive safely!".



May 30, 2016 10:00 PM Bram Stoker's Count Dracula

Bram Stoker's Count Dracula My last day and I can't wait to get home. When bad things happen it is sometimes so hard to shake off.
But for my last day, I must enjoy myself as I will never, ever, ever, ever go back to Romania and I would go as far as saying to my friend never to do the same. It's not worth t. There are far nicer places to visit without someone trying to cheat you.
I booked a tour and headed for Peles Castle. And the castle was well worth the visit. The carved wooden pieces into were really nice.
After that I went to Bram's castle and it was fun uncovering the story of count Dracula and the reference to Vlad the Impaler. Really from my understanding is that the two are very different and Bram didn't even visit Romania before writing the book. And Vlad didn't even stay in the castle so it was all lies. But a great story.



May 29, 2016 10:00 PM A bad feeling

A bad feeling The antics of yesterday just left me feeling down. I can completely understanding paying more is I had caused a problem while driving but to be scammed is just not one. The car was hit on both sides and that just seems more than coincidental.
Any way I put it out of my mind and headed to the old town to take in some of the major sites. I saw so churches but all of them were being renovated so they were boarded up.
Still not happy with that silly car rental firm.



May 28, 2016 10:00 PM Bulgaria on a budget

Bulgaria on a budget Well I wanted to spend the day doing a Bulgarian tour which was said to cost 99 pound but as I was traveling alone they were going to charge 160. I thought that was far too much so I came up with the idea of renting a car as it would only cost 25. For some reason I thought I would get it cheaper inside the country so I didn't book anything.
I got my hotel to book the car and had a really nice day with no incidents.
However when I got back to Bucharest I noticed the car had been keyed and I believe it was scam a way of exhorting money. I would say BEWARE OF RENTING A CAR FROM AMS (Automotive Mobility Solutions) as I don't think they are honest. My day turned out more expensive then it should have been.



May 27, 2016 10:00 PM OMG its early

OMG its early I decided to have a cheap getaway so thought I would head to Bucharest Romania. I booked a flight with Ryanair which was fairly cheap but the only thing was that the flight was 6.30 in the morning. Instead of booking a taxi as I was on a budget I decided to get the bus to Liverpool street and then get the Stansted express to Stansted airport. I left my house at 2.45am and then got the 3.40 train to the airport, This a new service they now offer as they recognize it had for people to get to the airport for these early flights and the train was full.
I think I slept all the way but arrived early just before 12pm. I had already research that the 783 bus would talk me into the city and if I got off at bus stop 9 my hotel would be just across the road.
I made a mistake and missed my stop and ended up by the old town. So instead of heading back to the hotel I walked around and had lunch in Hanui cu tei and then took the slow walk back to my hotel.
The day was so hot, it caught me by surprise as the weather forecast for the weekend was 20 degrees but it felt really amazing to have the sun on my face.



May 01, 2016 10:00 PM Geneve - Jet d'Eau

Geneve - Jet d'Eau The city was cold as the day was very rainy. The stray from the Jet wasn't welcomed but it really did make it look prettier.



Apr 30, 2016 10:00 PM Zurich - Rhine Falls

Zurich - Rhine Falls Just outside of Zurich the Rhine flows towards Germany and where it meets just outside Schaffhausen it forms Europe's largest plan waterfall. After a rain shower the falls were amazing to see that amount of water gush down the falls - it really was worth a visit.



Apr 29, 2016 10:00 PM Leichtenstein - something to do

Leichtenstein - something to do After not having any firm plans decided to head for Liechtenstein - the smallest country in Europe. It is so easy to get there, more or less one straight drive. Once again the scenery was great. Everything in order very clean. Vaduz was buzzing with the run so I'm sure for a Saturday afternoon they hadn't seen so much people there all at once for a long time.
