It's been over three years since our Indian adventure - and our last post we are ashamed to say!

Rose is now five and there has been an addition to our number: Rose's little brother William who is already two.

We upgraded our boat 'Windrush' last year and now have a much roomier Beneteau 323 which we keep on Lake Windermere in the English Lake District, easily one of the most beautiful locations in the world, even if the weather is fickle.

After a couple of years of working too hard, we have decided to take an extended holiday and use up some of the ridiculous amount of accrued holiday.
The plan is to spend the next nine weeks sailing all the way around the United Kingdom, and we will share our experience through this blog. We hope you enjoy following our journey.

Jon, Kate, Rose and William.

Sightseeing on the road to Tadipatri

(viewed 3102 times)

After staying in Banaganapalle we carried on south west towards Tadipatri on a road skirting the Erramala range of hills. We chose this road as it passed some famous caves at a place called Bellum. We visited the caves but not the full 3km of tunnels as it was pretty sweaty down there. The caves were beautifully lit with LED ribbons set into the smooth ceilings. Even down the caves we could not escape the press and were questioned by our fourth reporter of the day and eighth of the trip!

Very different landscape today; dry, dusty and we cycled through a vast slate and granite mining area. We all enjoyed a long downhill towards town, even impressing the truck drivers we outran, Jon registered 52kmph!!

It's worth noting that alcohol is not readily available in the areas we're passint through, but Tadipatri is a reasonably big place on the train line and, having installed ourselves in the only hotel in town, enjoyed a well-earned beer.
