Blog post / An Interesting Time (2nd August 2021)

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and keeping busy. I’ve been busy this last 10 days or so! On Friday 23rd July, my love, Tatiana, and I headed to Weston-super-Mare in Somerset for the weekend to stay with my parents. Normally a straightforward journey! However, this one turned out to be problematic! Upon arrival at Taunton, our train to Worle, a suburb village of Weston was delayed and then subsequently canceled. So we had an hour or more to wait for another train. Read more →

Blog post / A means to accessible travel (6th July 2021)

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well and busy travelling :). Below is a lengthy article about a British man who invented a travel chair for his disabled wife after, once again, receiving poor specialist assistance at London Heathrow Airport. Something that, sadly, is a frequent experience! I thought you all might find this article interesting, especially for anyone who like/wants to travel. The chair sounds great, though it seems a little expensive at first glance.

Videos from a visit to the Roman Baths, Bath, England (21st May 2021)

Tony listening to the Hot spring (Sacred spring) at the ancient Roman Baths in the city of Bath, Southwest England, 18th May 2021.
Another video of Tony with his mum at the wonderful Hot spring at the Roman Baths, Bath, England. This natural hot spring heated the baths and pools at this ancient temple complex for bathers and worshippers who bathed naked and relaxed and meditated in various small hot pools and swam in and relaxed around the Great Bath, which back then, was roofed. The sound of the hot spring and the warmth of its temperature is delightful.

Blog post / Early adventures! (17th May 2021)

It’s the 17th of May, and a few more restrictions have been removed for people living in England. This is good news. I’m beginning to get out and explore a little further. Heading to the famous Roman Baths in Bath tomorrow for a spot of history and can’t wait. I’m cautiously optimistic about the further opening up of the country. However, I am aware of the situation of the rapid spread of this new Indian variant of the virus,
