England trip starts!

We're waiting in Halifax Airport for our flight to England!  I'll never get over being able to get on the internet in public places, it seems so improbably futuristic, somehow :)

As always happens, I got most of the things done I needed to, and the ones I didn't get done will turn out not to have been so essential after all, I guess.  I have some very light reading and some chocolate and a book of Sudoku puzzles and am looking forward to the flight!

The building in the photo above is our first stop, the Olde House Pub outside Chesterfield, where we'll spend tomorrow night.  It's the same place we broke our journey from Gatwick to Staithes last year, and we're comfortable there.

So the next time I write, we should be in Chesterfield!


  1. Have a safe and enjoyable journey. The pub looks a lovely place to stay. I really like Chesterfield which I have only recently discovered since my daughter went to Sheffield University. The whole area is so friendly I just love it.

  2. Wow that looks like a wonderful place to stay. I hope we will get to see lots of photos like last time. Have fun!!!

    If you see any nice/interesting exterior lanterns on cottages...Would you mind taking a photo of them for me? I want to make a miniature copper or brass one. Thank you for considering. :-)

  3. Have a Great Journey Nina! I look forward to the next update!

  4. Enjoy the trip Nina!!!!!!!!

  5. I love all your holiday: you can be very addictive, and is a little 'how to travel together ...
    So: have fun :-)
    Mini hugs, Flora

  6. Have a safe journey Nina. The weather has been fairly kind to us of late, so I hope it lasts whilst you are over here. Staithes and the east coast has propably had the best of it all. It rained for the first time in over a month last night, but just a little. Take care. Ian
