    Travels

    I have a busy few days coming up - travelling what is considered the full length of Britain - John O'Groats to Lands End!

    On Thursday morning I will be arriving at John O'Groats and then driving through Edinburgh, then Meriden (the officially recognised Centre of England) and then on to Land's End arriving on Sunday morning.

    All being well, I will get photos taken at the start, finish and along the route - I'm taking my stylish GPO t-shirt with me which I will try to get into every shot.

    Off-topic I know, but this will explain my absence from the forum for a while

    Thanks for the good wishes, Guys.

    I decided to bring my laptop with me and try to find some WiFi internet access points along the way. As you could easily guess - I've had success.

    Progress so far?

    Photos?

    I'm going to do start some sort of blog later on tonight that I'll link to.

    But in brief, starting from Birmingham (central England) I have travelled upto Glasgow, via Carlisle - and have just now arrived in Inverness - about 500 miles from my starting point. First thing tomorrow (Thursday) I carry on North up to John O'Groats to start my journey proper. For the geography afficionados amongst you, I can confirm that I will be popping into Dunnets Head which actually is the most Northerly point on mainland Britain.

    I have taken some photos on the way up - lovely scenery - and if I can get them off my camera and onto a server somewhere, I'll link to them as well.

    Anyway - off to the hostelry next door for a relaxing pie and a pint!

    Mince pie (not the Christmas kind), mutton pie, steak & kidney pie, then we go to local chip shop and get deep fried pizza, haggis in batter, black pudding in batter, sausages in batter and deep fried Mars Bar.

    If yer rich you go for Chinese or Indian (my favourite).
