The time is always right to do what is right

Travel

It's a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and, if you don't keep your feet, there's no telling where you might get swept off to. J.R.R. Tolkien

These are my writings and photos from my travels out and about around the United Kingdom and beyond.
