Turin, Italy - 12th October 2006

By: Deborah

It was a busy busy day for sightseeing. Travel Ted was especially enthusiastic about the castles, although Ivor, who lives in one, found them rather dull. Nevertheless, he patiently trekked from Piazza Castello to Castello del Valentino to help Travel Ted take some pictures. Both of them were awed by the Mole Antonelliana though, which at 167.5 metres high was far too big to be photographed properly.

Alba, Italy - 13th October 2006

By: Deborah

Travel Ted heard there was a truffle festival in Alba and thought that they should pay it a visit. He was very disappointed to discover that not all truffles are of the chocolate variety but still enjoyed his trip to the town with the funny towers.

Turin, Italy - 14th October 2006

By: Deborah

On his last day in Italy, Travel Ted treated himself to some chocolate and pistachio ice cream. He wanted to take some home in his suitcase and was quite distraught when told that it wouldn’t survive the journey.

Hever, England - 17th October 2006

By: Deborah

Travel Ted missed Ivor dreadfully but his post-holiday blues were somewhat alleviated when one of his best friends took him for a spin in the Kent countryside. After a sumptuous lunch at The Wheatsheaf they stopped off in Hever. Travel Ted wanted to visit the castle but didn’t have enough pocket money left for the entrance fee so he settled for a little walk instead.

Otford, England - 17th October 2006

By: Deborah

Next they visited Otford, where Travel Ted admired the sheep and the patchwork fields.

Farningham, England - 17th October 2006

By: Deborah

The afternoon was rounded off with a ramble in Farningham, which had a very pretty little river where Travel Ted tried to befriend a duck with a crooked bill. He asked Mr. Mallard if he’d like to be his new travel companion, but Mr. Mallard just shook his feathers and fixed his attention on a clump of weed.

Blackheath, London, England - 20th October 2006

By: Deborah

Travel Ted could hardly contain his excitement when he learned that Billy Smart’s Circus was in town. At the evening performance he was entranced by the colourfully lit tent and his eyes nearly popped out at the sight of the huge clouds of candy floss (but he didn’t have any as he was scared it would stick in his fur). He loved every minute of the show, and thought the acrobats were magnificent although the contortionist was his very favourite of all.

London, England - 21st October 2006

By: Deborah

Travel Ted decided to soak up a bit of culture at the Tate Modern but reached the conclusion that he didn’t really understand modern art. Still, the view across the river was lovely and he got to go on the wobbly bridge, although he felt a bit let down by its utter failure to wobble no matter how hard he jumped up and down on it.

London, England - 24th November 2006

By: Deborah

Travel Ted had a very, very long journey ahead of him so he made important preparations and packed his favourite Abba and Bee Gees cassettes to play on his shiny Sony walkman, of which he was extremely proud.

Liverpool, England - 24th November 2006

By: Deborah

Six and a half hours later…

Travel Ted surveyed his surroundings. ‘What a very curious place’, he thought to himself as he looked around this strange new land of purple wheelie bins.

Liverpool, England - 25th November 2006

By: Deborah

It transpired that the dustbins were not in fact one of Liverpool’s main tourist attractions. Travel Ted was taken to see The Liver Building, which looked terribly impressive. And yet, as he turned his back on it to have his photo taken, something even better caught his eye…

Liverpool, England - 25th November 2006

By: Deborah

Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! Travel Ted’s completed his first mission!

A ferry boat called the Royal Iris of the Mersey took him all the way across to the other side of the river in an hour-long tourist cruise before bringing him back all cold and happy. He was very taken with the way the seagulls flocked after the boat (although he worried for the cleanliness of his favourite dungarees) and it was great fun to look back at the buildings from the other side of the water. He even got to sing along with a tape recording of the famous song.

Crosby Beach, Liverpool, England - 25th November 2006

By: Deborah

Travel Ted took a drive to Crosby Beach where a man called Antony Gormley had planted 100 statues of himself in the sand. The tide was in so he couldn’t get up close to the drowning figures, but that was ok because the sunset was magnificent. (Indeed he thought it complemented his complexion very well.)

Crosby Beach, Liverpool, England - 26th November 2006

By: Deborah

Travel Ted went back to see ‘Another Place’ but mistimed the tide again. Still, he had a little walk along the beach and got a slightly better look. He’d read on the internet that the installation ‘harnessed the ebb and flow of the tide to explore man’s relationship with nature’. Travel Ted found that very meaningful as sometimes he liked to contemplate his place in the wider scheme of things too. Maybe modern art wasn’t so bad after all.

Carnforth, England - 26th November 2006

By: Deborah

All the way up in Lancashire was Carnforth Station, where one of Travel Ted’s very favourite films was made. He thought Brief Encounter was ever so romantic and always had a little cry during the dashing Trevor Howard’s final scene.
