England has miles of beautiful coastline and the Fylde Coast in North West England, which stretches from Lytham St. Annes all the way to Fleetwood, is certainly no different. With this being so close to my home town of Ramsbottom, I have been fortunate enough to visit this part of the country of several occasions in the past but...
So...stood in the middle of Sydney with time ticking by, what to do first? Our intentions were to follow the "Sydney in a Day" guide so we opted to follow suit and climb atop the Sydney Tower to provide a bird's eye view of Sydney and see exactly what this city had to offer. The directions indicated that "the...
Ending 2012 and starting 2013 in Australia was a first for both of us and it was certainly a memorable experience. Although Sydney is stereotypically the place to be to celebrate the New Year in Oz, we were based in Brisbane and without a doubt "the Brisbanites" know how to party to bring in the New Year Down Under! The...
2012 was probably our first year of serious traveling. We were fortunate to visit several different locations together and we certainly expanded our knowledge of different regions of the world. This was also our debut year for "Tourist Guide Central" which originated from our constant traveling that gave us the inspiration to begin sharing our experiences with the world....
It's been several years since I had visited the Lakes and yet again I was left astonished by the true beauty that surrounds the English countryside when we visited here during our trip to England in November 2012. This was Heather's first trip to the Lake District and I don't think she left disappointed with what she saw. Bowness and...
After traveling to Atlanta, GA for the weekend of the TOUR Championship in September 2012, we made a spur of the moment decision to head back home on Sunday using an alternative route. After researching a route that would take us back home through Nashville, we noticed that on the way about half way from Atlanta to Nashville was...
For Heather's birthday, we decided to head to Miami, Florida for a 4 day weekend (Labor Day weekend). Given that we usually rent a car for such trips, this was a more unique experience for us especially Heather, as we knew that this was going to be a trip of relaxation and full use of the Miami public transportation...
Sunday September 30th, 2012 was the scene of the most amazing comeback in golfing history as Europe fought back from 10-4 behind midway through Saturday's Fourball section to seal an astonishing 14 1/2 - 13 1/2 victory over USA in the 2012 Ryder Cup. Only a week after travelling to the TOUR Championship in Atlanta, GA, we were unsure as to...
So....after our morning and afternoon adventures, we decided to spend our early evening venturing to the top of the Empire State Building. We wandered down 34th St passing the infamous Macy's department store (a brief visit leading us to see masses of shoppers was sufficient for us to turn around and continue down towards the landmark skyscraper. Arriving at the...
My first experience in the United States of America was visiting the amazing city that is New York City. The stereotypical 24 hour city of the world certainly lives up to it's reputation and I was delighted whenever we arranged to go back here so that Heather could experience this vibrant city for the first time. Where to stay in...
