When I saw that the subject for the next round of Travel Photo Roulette was ‘Serendipity’ I felt a bit stumped. Did I have a photo that fitted this theme?

This round, as always, is being hosted by the winner of the previous round, in this case James from Fly, Icarus, Fly. Visit his site for all the details of how to enter this travel bloggers’ competition. The closing date is 21st January.

There were more than I thought! And now I stumped again… which one to choose?

Travel Insurance

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.
