Background
Travel and Transport ... twin hobbies that take me to many places, and I'm delighted to be able to mix them with business sometime. Share with me some articles and pictures about places I've been for pleasure, for business, or for both if I can wangle it. (and the following sections) some of my musings that are nothing

4730San Juan Capistrano
On a theme of seeing Los Angeles by public transport, we visited the mission os San Juan Capistrano on Saturday - MetroLink train from LA's Union Station and back later in the day - an infrequent service by UK standards, but a good one by American ones. Continuing on my theme, alas, from previous posts ...

4729The oldest part of Los Angeles
From a walk around the oldest part of Los Angeles yesterday - 22nd November 2016. The oldest building in the city is the Adobe House (where the pictures of the Cacti and the dining rom are taken from) - and that's 3 years younger than our home in Melksham. In the 19th Century, this part of the city ...

4683Saudi Arabia or Weymouth?
It's a quiet, cool Sunday morning ... great to be back in the UK having spent last week delivering a Ruby Course in Saudi Arabia. Walking out of my accommodation there just after 7 in the mrning, I was already ht by a wall of heat - in the high 30s celcius - for the 15 minute / 2 checkpoint walk to the ...

4490What and where are the Azores?
I used to pride myself in my geographic knowledge - but this week, I realise there are gaps.

4486Newark to New York - the PATH suburban railway
We get used to - and familiar with - our own systems and their rules. Be that behaviour and politeness, shop arrangements or transport. And travelling the world (as I'm doing for a couple of weeks) gives an opportunity to see other people's systems, learn about them - at times with a degree of discomfort ...

So let me start with a positive. Six crowns out of six for the location. For ...

Here's what I'm faced with as I walk out of the hotel and when I turn left at the roundabout, ...

I get a chance to train in Ireland 3 or 4 times a year, and it's a trip I enjoy.

1425Melksham v Ely
From Ely last weekend - some things that we could learn for our town? Some of these things are being talked about already, some may be longer term, but I suspect that all are practical. * A train service that's vibrant even though the station is on the edge of town and in amongst some industry * ...

1244FolksFest Bristol - German beer, Bratwurst and music
Yesterday ... a trip to Ikea in Bristol (for tables for an event we're holding this week) left us frustrated and speechless, and Ikea loosing themselves some business. Yes, they had what we wanted. Yes, there were 24 in stock. But no, we couldn't have them as they were stacked on a high rack and ...

1229Where am I?
This might be quite easy (and there are some clues around ...) Travelled yesterday (so it's NOT Wiltshire), checked in to a hotel, training nearby today. ...

1147A picture (mostly in words) of Helsinki
It's a while - a long while - since I wrote a travalogue of one of my journeys - things have gone from busy to mad to manic over the past year and that's hardly a suprise - in the last year we have bought a house, refurbished it into a high quality hotel, planned all the rooms, staffing, systems, opening ...

886Signs of Leek
A brief evening breath of fresh air around Leek shows me signs of spirit, community and humour. I don't know the history of this pub sign, but there are those out there that will tell you that a Quiet Woman is rare in the extreme. I expect that a very old name indeed, associated with some even centuries ...

778Weekend in Ireland
Greetings from Ireland ... it feels almost like a regular trip, arriving at first light on the boat at Dublin Docks. This weekend's been a little different; rather that head all the way back from Liverpool to home late into Friday evening, just to set off again during Sunday (and perhaps via Liverpool!) ...

685A couple of days away
No "Horse's Mouth" yesterday nor this morning - Lisa and I have been up to visit a potential supplier of everything from bollard lights to tables chairs and reception desks for Well House Manor; delighted with what we saw and more posts to follow on the subject, no doubt. On the way, though, we took ...

713Pictures from my travels
In the last couple of weeks, I seem to have been all over the country and I've just uploaded a whole raft of pictures ... with the addition of accommodation to my "brief" this year, I'm collecting a whole load of Wiltshire snaps to use the very best on our new sites, and you'll find much of the new raw ...

730Reading the newspaper and working with other restrictions
Refered by a contact to an article in "The Sun" concerning trains and politics, I was given the screen above when I tried to follow the link yesterday. And that's not the first time I've seen that page since I got here {Saudi Arabia] late last week. In an earlier, long, blog I talked somewhat of my ...

740Finishing up in Dhahran
The end of a long two weeks ... I'm writing this blog in the reception area at the Dhahran International hotel, ready for posting after an overnight flight back to the UK. My car arrives in about 60 minutes ... Today has been spent shrinking. Clothes and possessions gathered this morning and fitted ...

727A journey, an arrival, a people
It's a long, long time since I sat down and wrote a "travelogue"; although I enjoyed writing about places and people, there was getting to be much of a similarity in what I wrote - indeed, the world is a smaller place year by year. But yesterday, I flew into [place to be named later] and although the ...
