Trip Report Treacle Down Effect

Jump to last reply

Anyone can write a trip report while en route or upon their return, this trip report starts before I leave. Do not expect practical advice or an accountant's account of every left-sided entry or the times of awakening. This will be what I remember and what I want you to know.

It is called the Treacle Down Effect, for many reasons not the least of which is whether the haute cuisine of the Gordon Ramsay and the like have had changed the menus nationwide or have just allowed people to say "Uh?" for a living after the curse at them. The other reason is why has the Pound, the money of a country that has slipped back into a recession, continue to increase against the dollar. In the US the Treacle Down effect is a discredited economic theory but one that seems to have currency in the UK.

We will be staying two days in London, because we have been there many times before. Then on to York to stay with friends, followed by 4 or 5 days in Edinburgh, I forget the exact amount with a grand finale in Dublin.

I am not sure when I will able to send reports from the front, but I will look for wifi (or wee-fee as they say in Spain) whenever possible to keep the two people glued their keyboards, due to the residue of previous snacks that fill the cracks between the letters, informed about my whereabouts.

Until then find something else to do.
