My Sunday Photo 21/08/16 – LEJOG

On Monday morning we got on a train and headed to Land’s End for the start of our challenge to travel the length of the country by train and bus.  Two days, 17 hours and 54 minutes after leaving Land’s End, we reached John O’Groats.  By Friday morning, we were back home again.  It’s certainly been quite an adventure.… Read more
