Autumn Colours It’s that time of year when the British landscape turns a gorgeous shade of red, orange and brown as Autumn (or Fall if your from America) properly kicks in. I have to admit that I do adore a warm summer’s day but the colours of autumn create some beautiful scenery around us. …

We all love a good road trip don’t we? It’s a great way to travel,  to see a number of different places in one trip, building your own itinerary and taking everything at your own pace. A country as vast and varied as the USA is made for road trips, and no more so …

Do you remember that time we won an overnight stay in castle in Scotland? No, well you can remind yourself of that here. We’d flown in to Inverness airport, picked up a nippy Fiat 500L, which I had never heard of up until this point, and spent time exploring the Scottish Highlands. The first …

Planning a Caribbean trip, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? For the majority, I would guess that it’s beautiful white sandy beaches, turquoise waters, cocktails and palm trees. Is that you?

Towards the back end of last year we were discussing holidays for 2018. Where would we go? What would we do? We have a couple of bucket list holidays in the planning stages for 2019 (which are not going to come cheap), so we thought we should be a little bit more creative this …

If you are jumping straight in this ‘Part Two’ post – to recap, Part One covered some of the reasons why I fell in love with San Francisco. We also took a virtual tour on the Big Bus San Francisco, sharing some photos of the destinations along the way. Check it out here. The …

“I left my heart in San Francisco.” Tony Bennett It’s a bit of a cliche, I know, but I think I did leave my heart in San Francisco. This is a city I fell in love with and returned to more than once, each time having a different experience, exploring more of the city …
