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 sea view taken below medieval Tintagel Castle in Cornwall… England can be so beautiful, especially at wildflower time!
I am very much of the opinion that you only get once chance at life. It’s often shorter than you think, and you should absolutely grasp every opportunity you get to see new places, and try new things… Whatever or wherever it is, it might be the best thing you have ever seen/done after […]
