I remember speaking on a Travel Panel at BritMums a few years ago where I was asked whether you should bother writing about a destination if it had been written about many times before. “Absolutely” I replied, your personal experience of a place is never going to be the same as someone else’s is […]
A Summer’s day in Munich’s Englischer Gartens. We popped back last week for a flying visit. It was so lovely to sit and appreciate the cool shade underneath the canopy of chestnut trees…
At the weekend…. That short introductory sentence always makes me laugh. Journal writing on a Monday morning with a bunch of 5 year olds can reveal some hilarious stuff, corkers from my children’s weekend journals at a similar age include “At the weekend, we bought a pet snake called Adrian (we hadn’t)” to […]

It really is English scenery at its finest, and there’s something for everyone, from gentle walks in quintessential patchwork countryside (all divided by […]
If I was to win the biggest lottery on the planet, after doing various good deeds and helping out a few deserving friends and family members, I would build a house. A HUGE house in the middle of rolling English countryside, where I could roller skate through the vast halls (once I had learned how) […]
