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

La Laguna, another time, another place

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

Corsica, the island of beauty

“If you feel like working, sit down, it will soon pass.” Corsica, a laid-back, sleepy island off the west coast of Italy. While for the last two hundred years or so it may well have been French, to me it has always been simply… Corsica… unique,... read more

Be a Travel Writer, Live your Dreams, Sell your Features

Kira, pins, belt, it was all there, beautifully laid out on the bed, but how do you put on a Bhutanese dress? Perhaps the hotel staff could help? ‘‘Sorry, madam, too early, no ladies on duty.’’ There I was in a hotel room, 5.30 in the morning, with two men I’d... read more
