'Its out of this World'.

Believe me, I have experienced it.


Its out of this World

Planing a trip to Iceland?

I don't think I have to tell you about the beauty of our island. Iceland offers a wide variety of natural wonders, some parts because of volcanic activity and glaciers and also because of clean and unspoiled nature. But to get the most out of your trip to Iceland you should consider travelling with a superjeep and an experienced mountain guide.

Iceland is simply 'made' for travelling in superjeeps. Some of the most beautiful places are impossible to reach without them, both because of the seasons and the 'fabulous' Icelandic mountain tracks. On the following page you get to know what kind of trips I'm doing, where I try to bring out the main aspects and themes. There are a lot of pics here too and if you're interested in nice looking nature or just trucks on HUGE wheels this is for you.

For a truly 'out of this world' experience... its Up Up and Away!

Peter Kollar and Chris Johnson, Directors of Up, Up and Away, are passionate about ballooning. After more than 12 years experience and 30,000 satisfied passengers, their enthusiasm is still on the rise, just like their balloons over the Canterbury Plains.

Ballooning is encouraged as a group activity, able to break boundaries of age and nationality. Hands on experience in helping set up the balloon, leaves each traveller feeling as though they have really participated in creating their spectacular memories.

Barnes Brinkcraft.

Barnes Brinkcraft is situated in Wroxham, the heart of Broadland. The boatyard is owned and personally run by the Thwaites family team. Over 35 years experience has enabled them to be able to offer you the perfect Norfolk holiday. Whether you are looking for a cruiser, or a house, they have something to suit everyone's taste and pocket. If you would like any further information then please contact them via the details supplied on their Contact Us page.

The Broads is the largest wetland in Britain and is specially protected, with the equivalent status of a national park. There are six rivers connecting forty broads, making over 200km of waterways in all, and just waiting to be explored.

Each Broad was once a medieval peat digging which was flooded to become a shallow lake after the peat was dug for fuel. Water, reeds, marshes and tangled woodlands make up Broadland's landscape - a haven for birds and wildlife. Broadland meets the sea at Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth, two bustling seaside towns with first class beaches to be enjoyed. Places to visit include nature reserves, churches, windmills, craft centres, and numerous riverside villages, with pubs, shops and restaurants.

At the western end of the river Yare is the historic city of Norwich. With its 900-year-old Cathedral, Norman castle, museums, theatres, market place and shopping centre, Norwich is the capital of Broadland. Regattas and other boating events are part of life on the Broads. Ashore you will also find lots of local events, such as carnivals, and fetes to add to the fun. The area caters for all kinds of holiday activities such as cycling [cycles for hire], walking and fishing. The broads is a magical, mystical place to explore - take your time and enjoy it.

The Most Powerful sport in the World 'Tractor Pulling'


Tractor power

We have heard through the Grapevine that various tractors are having new hearts, there is even a rumour that a Meteor is lurking about? The Symphony is apparently having major modifications including a self-pumping throttle assembly. We also hear that there are going to be more blown Rovers about in 2001, and that there are big cubic inches coming down from the North. The Dealer will possibly have a German Heart as Ian and I have seen more of Germany, France and Belgium than Britain in the latter part of 2000. Ian is busy taking his next licence, I think he is thinking of flying to the events next year, well he said something about a JET anyway!
