My New Year’s Resolution and a Free Gift for You

It used to be that when we travelled or even went on a long weekend away, we would send friends and family a picture postcard. It always made me smile when an image of a far-flung, exotic location or a pretty English village landed on my door mat with an update from a loved one. But the postcards stopped coming. Step in Postify, an easy to use app for sending postcards, using your own photos from your phone.

The Cotswolds in Black and White

When I recently visited the Cotswolds, a particularly lovely region of England famous for its honey-hued limestone cottages and the most charming of villages, I was very disappointed that the weather forecast predicted rain. A clear blue sky and sunlight really... read more

The Secret Cottage Tour of the Cotswolds

Peeping through the windows of this pretty chocolate-box, thatched cottage, I see a welcoming sight. A large refectory table is laid with blue and white crockery and fancy pastries abound. As I step inside the heat from the cooking range adds to the warm and inviting... read more

Hiking Santorini 2: The hidden village of Akrilia

Having explored the village of Manolas and walked along a track through the countryside, we are now on the far side of the island of Thirassia, the little sister of the better known Thira (more commonly called Santorini). With the bright sunshine dazzling our eyes, at... read more

On cats, dogs and donkeys

Under the guise of sharing some cute pictures of a few of the many four-legged friends I recently met on Satorini, I’d like to tell you a little about Santorini Animals Welfare Association, a great organisation caring for the unwanted animals of these beautiful isles.

Eating, dancing and chatting with Mama Irini

Walking along the seafront at Kamari on the east coast of Santorini, I hear someone singing, an older voice, soft and sweet. Dressed all in black, as is the tradition for widows, her face shaded from the sunshine by a wide-brimmed straw hat, the singer, Irini, returns... read more

Instagramming Santorini

Early this morning I arrived back from a really magical week in Greece. I’ve had a superb time with my sister exploring the beautiful island of Santorini and neighbouring Therasia. Flying above the clouds to Santorini. I’ve wanted to visit for a very, very... read more

Beheadings, ravens and whopping great diamonds!

As I walk through the one foot deep, steel doors, that would have looked more at home protecting a high-tech bank vault in the latest blockbuster, I catch my breath and gaze at the bejewelled sword and scabbard suspended in the air before... read more

La Laguna, another time, another place

Standing on the still wet cobbles which glistened in the sunshine, in a beautiful courtyard, I may be soaked to the skin but I’m smiling. I feel as if I’ve been transported to another time and another place. I’m in a bubble trapped in history, way... read more

Sweet treats in Corsica

As my spoon broke through the soft sponge, I almost squealed with delight, as a cascade of melted chocolate escaped. It oozed around my plate and started to mingle with the vanilla gelato. I took a taste and, oh my, it was good. So very good that I spent most of the... read more

Exploring the beaches of the Golfe de Valinco

I love the sea and grew up spending the school summer holidays on the beach with my sister. I’d regularly stay in the water until my lips turned purple with the cold. These days I’m not quite so hardy and have to admit I prefer warmer climes when it comes... read more
