Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.


Date: 18th August 2014


A friend just sent me an email showing photographs of some absolutely amazing stairways around the world.

I came across this one in China and though I?m highly unlikely ever to go there I did find it a bit unfair that you can?t climb it if you are over 60. I?m very lucky and have more mobility, stamina and strength than many women decades younger.

In the recent past, I?ve climbed to the top of the Duomo in Florence and up the Bell Harry Tower in Canterbury so to be prohibited from climbing this is a bit of an insult.
Although the photos of the stairways were magnificent, the English left much to be desired and I have to show you the copy attached to this picture

'Before undertaking the ascent asks visitors to sign forms to ensure they do not have heart problems or lungs, and are under age 60." 

The ascent asks visitors! and anyone with lungs is prohibited from the ascent!!!

I?m sorry I can?t give you a link to this series of photos because they are magnificent.
