We went to Scotland (more on that next time) and stopped off for a day and night in Newcastle on the way or the car would have probably had a mechanical tantrum. The most interesting aspect was seeing That Angel of the North so I am blogging photos of the experience with some of the journey’s musical soundtrack. No photos of the noisy city centre hotel with a noisy covers band performing below our bed, nor the excellent comic shop round the corner from the hotel (it’s called Travelling Man) and no photographic evidence exists of the moment a seagull shat on me from a great height, and the same for the odd sight of a woman performing what appeared to be an acapella music video walking with a small child on each hand along the road where all the bridges are.

I bought the Niki & the Dove recently after completely missing out on the hype:
Anyone for Tennis?
