Two Itinerant Wombats

Post: # 65132Post Wombat »

G'Day Gang!

While plans are in no way finalised, it seems likely that the lovely Mrs Wombat and I will be in England next May :mrgreen: . So the question is............

is there anyone out there masochistic enough to be prepared to provide a night or two of lodging and perhaps a feed to two peripatetic wombats in return for their somewhat dubious company? (Well my company is dubious, Mrs Wombat is, of course, wonderful :mrgreen: )

The Aussie dollar aint worth much over there but there is something I want to be part of happening and I need to go. No point turning up for a week or a few days so we will probably make something like a month of it. We want to see a bit of the country and spending time with other Ishers would be a wonderful bonus.

Soooooo..........................anyone game?

If you want to include Scotland in your itinerary, you'd be welcome here for a few days, a week, whatever... We even speak Aussie!

We're easy to get to by both plane (Aberdeen airport is an hour away by car) or rail (station two miles from here) or plane and train as there's a station near the airport.

We may even have a bed in the spare bedroom by then. At the moment, visitors have an air mattress that has to be re-inflated every night. :roll:

Can't offer you a bed, I'm afraid, and I certainly wouldn't suggest this town is worth visiting as a glowing example of British community life (apparently we've just topped the charts for a 'growing economy' in this town - ie. it's consumerist hell). But I would be prepared to travel distances to meet up with you again.

Cool - if you call here on your way up to Stoneys can we give you some tree seedling to take up to him??
All you need now is a few in the middle of the country and you'll have done an (almost) national tour!!
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich

Well you are more than welcome to come and stay in Swindon. Not that there is anything to see in Swindon itself but I am on the doorstep of the Cotswolds and only an hour and a bit from heathrow.

I haven't got any spare spaces here, but let me know if you're near me or London, and i'll try to meet up with you both.

Have a great trip!

Gidday

Good onya there Nev. That's the way to go.

That sorta holiday would be the pants off any fancy preplanned tour.

Unfortunately I don't have the cash to get overseas, but I would love to put any of you up who comes down this part of the world too.
Cheers

Thanks Zoe!

An old friend (since passed on) was from the Cotswolds and now i think about it would be one of my "must see"s. It would be really great to meet up with you.

You too Fee. I am sure we will be able to arrange something! :mrgreen:

I will have to sit down with a map and see where all you good folks are!
