In Ireland, but from Bucks.
Hi folks, I'm now going to bore you all to death with my escapades in England.

I'll update, as and when I get access to a secure computer.

After an uneventful flight from Ireland, I landed and picked up my hire car,
of German manufacture. Petrol powered, but sounds like a diesel powered car of the 1960's.

Got to my brothers abode in just over an hour, stress free.

Went out and about today around Aylesbury. Had a pint in the tudor built Kings Arms.
Beer supplied by the local Chiltern brewery.....luverly stuff.:)

Bought some hooky tobacco from a local market saleman, who shall remain anonymous for obvious reasons.

I then made a trip to my home town of Princes Risborough, and sampled some more real ale in the Bird in Hand. Can't say I was enamoured with the sulky management.:mad: But nice beer though.

Wandered down across the railway tracks to the local footy ground to watch the local team........cuppa tea and a burger, plus 45 minutes of entertaining football.:)
I then moved further into town and had a swift half in The Bell PH, diffo strory there.....very friendly bunch.:)
Onwards to The George and Dragon Hotel(pub), and was distraut to find that they had ripped out 200 years of history and turned it into a wine bar type atmosphere. :). Nice beer though.:rolleyes::biggrin:

Leefer Lee, if you get stuck in Aylesbury over night....get to the Kings Arms.....you won't be dissappointed.;)

And Oz....the beer was not 'warm', but perfectly presented, and a delight to drink.:)

Not much else going on yet, just getting myself re-aclimatised to blighty.:2fun:

Oh yeah....weather is wonderful. wish you were here.:)
