We always enjoy staying here for a week or two on our way to and from the boat. Not only does Sean live here, we have also come to love this vibrant city during our 18 month stay here in 2011/12.

And just an hour on the train from central London, you can find nice walks. On Sunday we went to East Grinstead where a niece and her husband live. We walked for over 3 hours through nice (though a bit muddy) countryside.

We'll spend the rest of the week here. On Saturday we go to Cambridge to visit another niece plus husband and their 2 month old baby girl.
On Monday it's an early flight to Amsterdam and a train to Franeker where Onbekommerd waits!
