When you travel alone you have to find ways to include yourself in the photographs! I spent very little time at Ambleside. The cruise that I took from Windermere was up to Ambleside. But on the first day I was taking it easy and I took a late evening cruise. So it gave me very little time before the last boat was going back to Windermere. I noticed that YHA property at a very prime location, just next to the lake at Ambleside. Other than that I just walked around a little and then headed back to Windermere. But whatever little I saw, I found it pretty.
Saw this car in a pub’s car park at Ambleside in the Lake District, UK. No idea which car it is. If you know the name please drop in a comment, it would be really appreciated. I could have actually photographed the logo but then in a foreign land I had no desire to get accosted by the owner suddenly walking out of the pub. After all the car looks quite expensive and I am sure the owner would not take it kindly if he found someone messing around it with a camera! I also made sure that I did not get the number plate in the picture.
Update (18/08/2011): I got replies for this query on Facebook and Derek suggested that it belonged to Morgan Motor Company and it looks quite likely. There is a brief case study in one of the books I use for my masters students on Morgan Motor Company and there cars are largely handmade!
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
