I do enjoy being an armchair traveller, Bill.

As I doubt I shall ever visit GB, I am delighted to ride along with my SC buddies.
Bill Phillips: Never say never Ray. It would be worth it for a bacon buttie1
This is a nice old church to use as your starting of point on your new adventure Bill... i liked the video about Abergavenny... so i am sure that i will enjoy the ride....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Shame about the song though!

Well I'm glad you've found something to put on that barren patio. The Welsh Marches are quite a nice place to be on a sunny day.

A pity we can't entice Mr Storey over for a bacon buttie one day
Bill Phillips: It would be good to meet Ray and introduce him to the delights of the Buttie. Can't see me ever going to Thailand!

I sure am glad you loaded the video so that I'd learn how to say Abergavenny! HA! Now that I can say it, maybe I can visit it one day. smile
Bill Phillips: The proper Welsh name is Y Fenni.....no how is that pronounced? grin
As they say: ''This is interesting''.
Bill Phillips: as in it isn't

What an emptiness! I thought there were some cars or visitors or sitters (on the benches) - but you swept the parking place so properly tidy that we could it from it (German phrase) and filled it then with your promising words. Abergavenny doesn't sound Welsh. The gutterige is well visible (for Chad).

Bill Phillips: A lot of Welsh names have been Anglicised Abergavenny is really Y Fenni, which is also the name of the cheese that originates in the town.

Oh, sorry, please delete one comment - I cannot listen to the video.
Bill Phillips: you aren't missing much.

A new series to look forward to, then, Bill
Bill Phillips: Look forward to might be over egging the pudding Lisl

I believe the word is "tidy", but until Gavin and Stacey I didn't appreciate the entire range of meaning that could be invested in such a small word.
Bill Phillips: I have never seen Gavin and Stacy. Reminds me I still haven't watched series 3 of Black books!
Oh hell, i am not looking forward to this series.
Bill Phillips: You are going to hate every minute

I love the naff use of the yellow lettering, something I would be proud of myself. It certainly makes a dreary picture suddenly worth looking at.
Bill Phillips: You have summed this picture up perfectly. It sets the scene for what is to follow.......nuff said?

sorry: that we could e a t from the pavement (so sauber, dass man vom Fu├čboden essen kann)
Bill Phillips: It is very clean looking Philine.

You are too late for the 'Gwyl fwyd y fenni' - that was last month smile
Bill Phillips: See Friday's picture Louis.
I'm sure that song did them a lot of damage smile
Bill Phillips: didn't do a lot for Marty Wilde either
Great area just made for putting a title on. I enjoyed the video, with the sound turned down!
Bill Phillips: The song is terrible, I bet Marty Wilde winces if he hears it
That door in the stone wall looks intriguing, Bill. Will we be given a glimpse of what's on the other side?
Bill Phillips: Car Park Beverly, dead boring.....
That was much better 2nd time around, I followed Brian's suggestion and turned the sound off! I'm sure I've been to Abergavenny, too - lets see smile
Bill Phillips: Nice town, terrible song

I have fond memories of Abergavenny. It marked the gateway to a start to family holidays in the Brecon beacons. Good sheep market there, too.
Bill Phillips: It is a nice town and Ange wants to visit the Miserable Cow cafe

..we used to travel on the train between Abergavenny and my grandmother's homeland of Tredegar many, many years ago.
Bill Phillips: You are becoming nostalgic alan...pull yourself together man
We wait with baited breath, for the next thrilling installment!
Bill Phillips: It is all too much Tom, and I know what's coming

LOVE the song Marty Wild.... did not know it is a town....
Wonderful picture, you had lots of sun.
Bill Phillips: You like the song? Really??/?? smile
A nice introduction Bill. I enjoyed the video, but what a song!
Bill Phillips: Dire isn't it?

I hope that the caption on the photo isn't setting the tone for this forthcoming series! I can't make out what the figure in the background is up to but I'm sure it can't be good
Bill Phillips: No they get worse
What's this? Aber-addyction?
Bill Phillips: Haha Pure happenstance
