A Fortnight In Britian

Posted on January 15, 2012 by Brad

In the late summer of 2011, I took a 14 day trip to the UK with my wife Stacey, her sister Stephanie, and my friend Josh. I did the “writer” thing and kept a travel journal….but with a pen and paper. After a very slow and lazy process, I’ve finally transcribed it, cleaned it up a bit and improved it from my manuscript/rough copy.

While far from original, I wanted to have a digital copy of it to share with friends and family, and this site sorta serves as a good place to host it. I’m certainly not the first person to do such a trip nor am I the most interesting, but I have made it as fun as possible (plus there’s fun really bad illustrations). So just navigate on the chapters below to start reading…or if you have an e-reader , I’m working on making an attachment to put on here..so stay tuned!
