Arezzo in Tuscany is a stunning small city, famed for the frescoes by Piero della Francesca. Don't miss this gorgeous square the Piazza Grande which has the Vasari Loggia down it's side. Ted's in the bell tower overlooking, a perfect spot to observe the people in the cafes. Just outside Arezzo Ted ate his favourite pizza of walnuts, honey, pecorino cheese and pears!
Where else would you go in January than Iceland?! TweedyTed took off from Manchester with EasyJet for the short hop to Reykjavik and spent a few days in the half dark exploring the countryside but with no chance of seeing the Northern Lights! The hot springs at Geysir were very strange and a little smelly, Stokkur is the most impressive and took Ted quite by surprise. Gullfoss a little further up the Golden Circle was the most fabulous sight. A tour up the west coast in the mist meant a lot of the scenery was obscured, but there were some fantastic lighthouses at Akranes and Ted found a collection of painted pebbles, maybe by the curious pebble man that he found. Ted's friend BearLowe was equally keen to meet him! Reaching the Blue Lagoon on his final day TweedyTed was very sure as to whether his beautiful Harris Tweed suit would cope with the water and opted to view the lagoon from a safe distance! Ted loved his Iceland trip but found it very expensive so he remained tee-total for the whole time! The tap water on the other hand was very palatable and Ted found the Skyr very much to his liking! Maybe he'll come back in the sunshine of summer!

However, there are lots of things we can do to help the hedgehog population in your own town. Here are just a few….
