Perched on the edge of the beautiful english lake district lies a peninsula surrounded by the Irish sea. This peninsula is known as the Furness Peninsula and nestled right on the very tip lies Barrow-in-Furness.
Barrow-in-Furness is a moderate sized town and is situated close to outer towns, villages and places of interest. Shipbuilding used to be the main line of work providing plenty of jobs and a healthy income until the late 80's - early 90's. Although still in operation lots of other industries, manufacturers and retail stores have inhabitied the town. In retrospect a Dock Museum was built enabling visitors to view and learn the history of the industry. It also plays host to regular art exhibitions. I'll talk lots more about my home town in my travel page as there are so many delights that I have to mention to you.
Anyway, this is where I live with my daughter and my partner, 1 cat and 1 dog and very soon a bengal kitten will become another member of my unit. Travel is so much fun and so interesting, it gives us release from the mundane things in life. It helps us to wind down, be in thought, and leaves the hunger to learn, see and live craving for more. I tell you, I am always getting itchy feet. My partner will vouch for that! And because of my jetting off addiction, I have to take my family with me, which means lots of family trips, even if it's only for a weekend. This year we have travelled to many destinations and are now discussing next years escapades. I'm pretty lucky that my partner also has itchy feet and my daughter, well she wants to be an explorer.
