Sunday 20 July, 2014 by Uncle Spike

I absolutely LOVE to travel, as you may have guessed anyway from my writing.

    I’m with you on it’s the journey, not the destination…but these days I’m not quite so adventurous!

    I guess the first part of the journey alone will send me up to the heavens safely even before trying to get to that waterfall.
