The norm – When I travel, I lose weight.
Exception – When I travel with Visit Britain, uh-hmmmm…..3 course meals is the bare minimum.
The norm – The best way to go from point A to point B is the cheapest way, whether its a bus, a train or good ole walking.
The exception – Coach service with a Private Guide ‘Steve Griffin’ (Naaah.. he is not from Family Guy… he is funnier)
The norm – I stay in places like Flying Pigs and Three Ducks
Exception – Hotel names which have Castle, Manor et all with fluffy pillows and wake up calls
The norm – I drink tap water and cheap beer
Exception – Cheap beer remains.. but, in came expensive Wine too (though holding a glass has never been my style)
The norm – I pay to enter castles and museums
The exception – Visit Wales requests that Aparna Shekar Roy, a freelance journalist be allowed to enter all sights for no fee. Wooo hoo!
I could get used to this! If any of you want to send me on a travel blogging trip, I wouldn’t mind.
