I wrote on Freddie Miranda's blog this month, at his request. This piece is about a blitz-trip my family took to Canterbury a few years ago just a few days before Christmas.
Check it out, and Freddie's blog. He's got great travel stories. His blog is in my bloglist: From a Traveller's Desk. Here's the link, if you can't find it on my page: http://www.fromatravellersdesk.com/
Happy New Year!
