a different approach to touring.....

Post by chrisbrown » Sun Sep 18, 2011 3:25 pm

Anybody interested in joining a radically different sort of battlefield tour through northern Europe? Small group, busy schedule and not, perhaps for the faint-hearted, but an opportunity to see a great deal in a short space of time. Details from me or from http://www.warbus.co.uk
We'll be spending whole days (from early morning) at several sites - Arnhem, Leipzig, Normandy and others - lots of fun so long as you like battlefields....otherwise not so great.

If there's no beer, I'm not going...and I'm the organiser. The idea is to have an intensive bit of battlefield-bashing and historiographical debate.....OF COURSE there will be beer.
As a fairly well-qualified historian (Ph. D., widely published, University teaching, peer reviewed etc) I'm not so sure that the historiological god/lancashire evidence is so slim as all that...best chipshops, some fine curry-houses and Greenall Whitley mild all occurrring in the same location; sheer chance? irreducible complexity? Darwinian evolution? The www.warbus.co.uk policy is 'let's tackle the hard questions!'

Good man Chris!
The tours sound like a good idea,just have to convince the wife.
p.s.
Whilst all these things about Lancashire are true,lets not forget a winning cricket team :D,Chorley cakes,Eccles cakes( and by God sir,if you want gravy or curry sauce on your fish,they'll do it and no dirty looks) As for God...well I am told you'll find him in "The Musketeer" on Lord St most afternoons.

The March 2012 tour should be great fun. If you've checked out the website you'll know that it is a fair bit of dosh, but we will get to a lot of places and have a decent amount of time on site in a reasonable time frame. I think it's pretty good value for money....however....there is enough flexibility to offer a discount for group bookings - email me chris@warbus.co.uk for more info.
God/Lancashire evidence; being Scottish, cricket is a mystery to me, but what I believe theologians call 'the Eccles Cake Postulation' is a major contribution to the debate. Although I have been to Chorley several times I am, tragically, unaware of a Chorley Cake...why has this knowledge been deined to me!
