Well I finally made it to the UK. It lived up to its reputation at Heathrow as the luggage belt broke down just as start to get a little bit full which left nearly 500 passengers waiting for them to fix it but they then had to change it to a smaller belt.
Luckily I was met at the airport by Barry Smith as I had just about had enough after the flight. Barry drove me to his Mum’s place in Wiveliscombe in Somerset where I stayed the first 2 weeks.
During my stay with Val & Ray they took me around to various places in Somerset and Devon.
The start of week 3 I picked up a hire car and went to stay with Sybil in Weddon Cross.
I had hoped to have access to the internet but like rural Australia Rural England doesn’t had a great wireless broadband coverage.
Next week I’ll be in a B&B in Cornwall that claims to have WiFi so I hope to catch up on posting the trip so far with the odd photo or 3.
