Travel Tuesday # 25 – Watching a Vintage Steam Train

One morning during our August 2005 trip to England while of walking into the Bristol Temple Station to board an ordinary train we noticed a vintage steam train readying to depart on an excursion.  My husband, the train fan, decided  we should hang around and watch the old-timer take off.





Travel Tuesday # 1 – Oxford, England

This photo was taken in 1998 during my first visit to Oxford.  It shows the Hertford Bridge that links together the Old & New Quadrangles of Hertford College.  It is often referred to as the Bridge of Sighs but it is actually not a copy of that famous bridge in Venice.  The other two things I would point out in the photo are (1) the men of ladders on the left, old buildings always need attention, and (2) the bikes on the right, in Oxford pedestrians need to be as mindful of bike traffic as they do of vehicles.
