Come along for the journey!

Come along for the journey!

Thursday, 15 October 2009


We're all about the environment. That's why we're now only travelling by train, bus, and boat, and avoiding planes.  We'll be ditching the 5 litre car! Actually, we did struggle with the idea of taking such a gas-guzzler. But it's a one-off trip and it's just a few thousand miles, and blah blah blah, more justification….!!! How things change from my militant 'cycle only', 'carry an extra D-lock to smack cars if too close' days of yore. I do think flight has got the raw deal on the whole carbon footprint debate, but I also think certain size engines are fairly inexcusable. Easy to say now we've done that leg of the trip right? Despite the berating we'll no doubt face from our carbon neutral chums Barry and Sam, we have LOVED our cruising around Europe.  Time to catch the sleeper train to Istanbul.
