Tuesday Jam & Guitars

Od couple's long walk to Venice
We found this news item on the Press Association web site and since it's local...
An adventurous couple from a village called Odcombe are preparing to set off on an epic 2,000-mile round trip to Venice - on foot.

Chris Worledge, 34, and his girlfriend, Michele Roberts, 33, who live in the village in Somerset, have given up their well-paid jobs to follow in the footsteps of local hero Thomas Coryate - the man widely regarded as being the world's first travel writer.

The eccentric explorer toured Europe in 1608 and chronicled his adventures in Coryate's Crudities, three years later.

Alternatively take the Easy Jet flight from Bristol and enjoy a ride on the canal boats a couple hours later, mmmm. Well good luck any way!

We are a little behind with listing the Taunton & Bridgwater area events at the moment. Hopefully we will put that right later on today.
