Nicola, Pete, Lola and Nell want to travel the world with a difference. We hope to get a taste of many countries without adding to climate change (with needless emissions from aeroplanes) or having to waste hours of holiday time in airport terminals. We hope our adventures inspire you to take a Grand Tour of your neighbourhood whatever the weather. This post is from Nicola
It may not be true but one of the people I've met on the buses today, John, reckons that Sheffield's floods are over, even with two more days of heavy rain forecast. "Course we're twinned with Atlantis," was his deadpan end to our conversation - which made me laugh a lot.
If we can find some snorkels in the secondhand shops where we are staying then we will take the train for a good look around.
