Cruising on The Oosterdam I thought today I’d pull up a Blog from the past written back in 2015. Our writing style has changed somewhat, but I think the content is still pretty informative.

Loving Farm Living Our present housesit here on a North Yorkshire farm has given us, former city slickers, a chance to experience day to day living in a rural setting.

Travel Smart, Travel Aware Remember when all you had to do was look both ways before you crossed the street? Well we all know that it was good advice way back when, but it’s nowhere near enough anymore.
