You should! Give the NT at Wicken a call and see if you can get an out-of-season reduction on the price, they gave me one

Aspiring polyglot, speaks Spanish quite well after a few drinks, learning French and a little bit of Euskera (Basque).  

Vague plans to walk the entire length of the Pyrenees one day...

Hobbies at the moment include trying to understand the global financial crisis.

One of the top five breakfasts of my life. Ham, eggs, fried spuds, toast and tea for under £6. Great service, very friendly, a gem indeed.
