My Monopoly Pilgrimage

The Strand. Bond St. Old Kent Rd. We could recite every property in the order they were on the board. Until my recent 55th birthday however, these were just that – names on a gameboard. I’d never been to the UK, and decided it was time to experience these famous places for real.

A Tale of One Cruise and Two Holidays

As the leaves in our neighbourhood began to display their autumnal splendour, my wife and I decided to treat our daughter and granddaughters [ 10 and 8] to a winter holiday.

Arriving in Edinburgh, and after checking into our fabulous central accommodation., the Princes Street Suites - , we took an easy walk to Royal Mile.

No Premium Economy option was available for this leg of our journey, and we wondered why.   Never mind, that’s travel, and three lads arriving in Dublin for a 6-week golf sojourn around Ireland and Scotland provided the “wow” moment we needed.
