Josh’s Blog. Back 2 Europe 2015! London Overview, and Monday 5th of October, Science and Natural History Museums, a real scientific day!

Hi all, Sorry, I haven’t done a blog in ages. We are in London, hooray! A long car drive got us here, and, after dropping our Ford Van (boohoo) off, we started doing what I call tourist central. I have heard it defined as a ‘hectic nightmare’ but, I prefer (as does everyone else) calling […]

Josh’s Blog. Back 2 Europe 2015! 27th and 28th of September. Last day in Shetland and a long drive.

Hi all, 27th of September Yesterday was our last full day in Shetland. We went on a Tom Anderson bus tour with a local guide. This was really fun, and we visited many spots including some 60 metre high cliffs, and Tom Anderson’s grave, where the MSFC played a tune or two. In case you […]

Josh’s Blog. Back 2 Europe 2015! Tuesday 22nd of September. Scottish tour.

Hi all, Today, we had an 1.5 hour drive to get to our destination in Huntly, Scotland. After a few tearful goodbyes to our lovely house in Inverness, we headed off on our trip. The only other thing we wanted to see in Inverness was Fort George, so we went there first. Built just after […]

Josh’s Blog. Back 2 Europe 2015! Tuesday 22nd September. Sunny (not really) days and blog nights, sounds like Scotland.

Josh’s Blog. Back 2 Europe 2015! Wednesday 16th of September. Notre Dame, Invalides, Conciergerie and Crêpes in the sunshine (not really)

Hi all, Yesterday was ‘all the things we want to see in Paris but haven’t seen yet day’. To be brief, it was going to be a big day. So, after waiting an eternity for Dad to get up and get ready, we finally set out to see Notre Dame (no, I haven’t forgotten ‘American […]

Josh’s Blog. Back 2 Europe 2015! September 15th – Versailles Palace. Gold.

Hi all, This will be a quick entry as I need to do my other one for today. Sorry for being inconvenient! Yesterday, we went to Versailles. Catching the train (it cost us over €25!), we arrived among the hoards of people heading for this palace. Covering over 2,014 acres (making it the world’s largest […]

Josh’s Blog. Back 2 Europe 2015! 14th September, The Louvre, Concorde and Arc de Triomphe.

Hi all, Yesterday was going to be Rick’s Historic Paris Walking Tour Day. A 4 hour phenomenon that managed to cover all the major sights in just 3 miles (almost 5km)!  But sadly (to some),  we woke up to a drizzly, cloudy day and after much deliberation on whether or not it was going to […]

Josh’s Blog. Back 2 Europe 2015! Sunday 13th September. Lazy day and a bit of Notre Dame.

Hi all, Yesterday we were all so tired from our 5hr drive to Paris the day before that I’m sure none of you readers would have enjoyed being with us (we were all a bit grumpy!). After having a brief ordeal with Mum’s hairbrush (we couldn’t find it anywhere), we decided to go to Notre […]

Josh’s Blog. Back 2 Europe 2015! Friday 4th September. D-day and beaches.

Hi all, Today we all had a late start. As we had not really decided on what to do, we could afford to get up late. After a brief breakfast and contemplation about what to do, Dad, Caleb and I decided we would visit the Operation Overlord Museum or the Mùsee de Ovérlorde. This museum […]
