Discovering


Countries

Whether a new island, region or country,
an unknown destination is always an adventure

Cultures

Learning about a country through its culture, from ancient customs to traditional music, beautiful buildings to street art 

Food and drink from around the world

Cuisines

Getting to know people through their food, from West African benechin 
to English fish & chips

Dancing, eating 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

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

The tear drops of Chios (and an usual summer cocktail)

One warm spring evening on a roof-top terrace in Athens, I sipped a pale pink cocktail, as the sun went down. My drink, a Cosmopolis, was made from Skinos, a delicious Mastiha liqueur which has a subtle but distinctive, slightly aniseed flavour and can be served... read more
