Rob Little’s Blog – musings of an English / British Tour Guide where I not only vent about things that “get my goat” but, also, publish lovely photos and eccentric stories about “this Sceptered Isle”!

A year ago today the world became a more chaotic place…..
Saturday, 20th January 2018

A year ago today the world changed in a way we could simply not have imagined.

Where might we be in another 12 months…..knowing what we now know, our most outrageous predictions stand to be eclipsed by something even more abhorrent and monstrous.

Spring is on its way…..
Friday, 19th January 2018

…..it might be a while yet but the sight of “catkins” heralds the fact that spring will soon be here…..

The snowdrops are beginning to come through and then its the daffodils…..

I can be all soft and delicate when I feel like it…..

“The United Kingdom is on the slide…..”
Wednesday, 17th January 2018

My grandaughter LOVES Peppa Pig and with its clear speech it gives a good introduction to tiny kids about life, sharing, families, school etc!

I love the way the writer has written this episode about “International Day” – espeially the bit about the UK being “on the slide” and the conflict between nations…..its almost like it was meant to be!!

Grampeee…..

Ironic I’m on a Drone course…..!
Monday, 15th January 2018

I shot this rainbow at Kemble Airfield or “Cotswold Airport” where I am on a CAA Drone Theory Course to allow me to use my drone professionally!

Fortunately I am not actually using the drone for the training.

Visit the British Isles and Europe on a customized private tour 20% cheaper than you could 3 years ago !!
Friday, 12th January 2018

Yes if you are using the US Dollar, my rates enjoy a tour tailored to your particular needs and interests will cost you 20% less than it did three summers ago !

If you’ve wanted to visit this part of the world but don’t fancy driving on the left with a “stick” then sit back and leave the driving to me.

If you’d wanted to find those isolated “quintessential” parts of the British countryside but don’t know how to find them – I will take you there.

If you want to visit the places your Fathers or Grandfathers were in 1944, I can not only take you to the D-Day invasion beaches in France but to the places in England where they rehearsed for D-Day. The above photo shows the remains of the amazing Mulberry Harbour that was constructed after D-Day on GOLD beach, Normandy.

To St Ives – delightful fishing town in the far south west of England – just a mile or two from Lands End…..

To the other end of the UK is John O’Groats – the northernmost settlement on the British mainland !

In between is the area of Yorkshire made famous by James Herriot in his autobiographical novels and TV series “All Creatures Great and Small” I can take you there too!

A coastal circuit of the island of Ireland…..stunning scenery, wonderful people, music every night, fantastic culture – no problem !

Visit my favourite Castle in Wales where they speak “The Language” [Welsh] – you’ll love it!

And speaking of castles I can take you to the castle in Scotland that has adorned more chocolate boxes than any other!

The wonderful thing about this part of the world is that we have so many world class venues so close together – you can usually see three or four in just one day like in the photo above – Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, Avebury and Bath…..just a few miles from each other and you can add in two more prehistoric sites, a village full of thatched cottages and two “movie set” villages – ALL IN ONE DAY !!

If you’re coming – don’t delay…..there’s only one of me and I’m booking up !

Peas in our Time !

Friday lunch club today was taken up with conversation over mother’s lost comb as well as her ideas to abolish the House of Lords and how it may be necessary to appease DT in order to retain the affection of the American people.

This conversation was executed over a bowl of carrot and coriander soup and a “flat white” coffee while I opted for the Brie and bacon ciabatta with a scrape of cranberry jelly.

We did not entirely see eye to eye but at least the conversation ended amicably!

PS After repeating the comment made last night in DC about “shithole countries” one of my favourite Customers, from KT, said he would willingly be “flushed” over here if the UK were one of those countries under discussion !

He’s not coming…..

Praps we are one of those “s***hole” countries he was talking about last night?

It could be summer…..

Ok I exaggerate – there are no leaves on the trees but this little shot taken between Bibury and Aldsworth is always picturesque with the river in the far distance. All the snow has gone but its very wet underfoot.
