Bob, you have to stop building up Coventry to me or I may have to move there straight away rather than waiting 'til next September!

Truth be told, there's a slightly better chance I'll live in Kenilworth or thereabouts. But I'll still get to enjoy all the wonders that Coventry has to offer!

Sj - there's more - there's much more. Tis a place I know too well - and particularly the eejits that run the place. Corrupt is too small a word - and I fully intend to see all but 3 of them imprisoned.

Well, carp on a salmon and paint me mauve! That's my kind of town!

I look forward to your being "on the spot" - (you'll be disappointed in Kenilworth - Leamngton's a better bet)

That sounds a bit as though you can't wait to see me suffer what surely awaits me!

Leamington's on the list of possibilities--we shall see.

Don't take my word for it - have a chat with the Cov Uni and Warwick Uni students.

Nooooo! I saw a white boat at 4 o'clock on the beach... Or it could be a shipwreck, or a sunbathing walrus...

Wow, and I have friends living on St Helena; it is a swampy strange place: Maglan, Princess Dinizulu, an Angel who told me fairystories when she babysat for me when I was 9. I was later able to book her to sing at one of my Festivals in Saffron Walden. I cannot find her on Google now...

It is a small world, but it is scary to find info inaccessible on the Internet...

I lived in Leamington for a few years a while back, and quite liked it there. It's an attractive regency town with some nice parks and decent selection of shops, bars and restaurants, and reasonably convenient for Warwick and Warwick Uni. Warwick itself has some nice parts, also. Kenilworth and Coventry made little impression on me (I didn't spend much time in either).

Hope you find somewhere you like, anyway.

Excellent! I know my husband hopes to work in the video game industry in/around Leamington, so perhaps it should be bumped up to first choice. :)

The computer games industry seems to have really taken off in Leamington since I first lived there. Back then, I think CodeMasters were still a fairly small company at the south end of town, making budget games for the ZX Spectrum. They seem to be well on the way to world domination now :)

As for inaccessible places, if you're wanting to drive to the city of Iquitos, you'd best be starting from Nauta, and if you want to drive to Nauta, you have little option but to start from Iquitos. Neither is connected to the rest of the Peruvian road network.

Iquitos is, however, accessible by boat from the Atlantic, a journey up the Amazon of over 2000 miles. I imagine this must make it the farthest inland port of its size in the world.

Clue's in the title... The Inaccessible Pinnacle.


The InPin is usually the last munro that baggers achieve, as it is the only one that cannot be summited without climbing. Three sides are near vertical faces, and the other an exposed knife-edge ridge.
