Hanging by a thread

Carrick-a-rede rope bridge spans a 60 foot gap between a rocky island and the mainland of County Antrim, in Northern Ireland. Crossing the swaying bridge, more than 100 feet above the crashing surf, is not for the faint of heart, but back in 2010 I managed to prod this Hand Crafted Travel group out on to the island and safely back. #tbt

A fruity heist

During a traffic stop, police in Sevilla, Spain discovered two cars loaded with oranges. The five occupants of the cars were arrested after they were unable to provide a plausible explanation for where the oranges came from. Maybe they were from Valencia.

Travel Thought for the Week

“As a rule the Parisian may be said to invite and deserve the confidence of travellers. Accustomed by long usage to their presence, he is skillful in catering for their wants, and recommends himself to them by his politeness and complaisance."
– Karl Baedeker, Baedeker’s Paris and Its Environs (16th edition, 1907)
