Favourite Places I’ve Travelled

  • Slovenia: Rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, waterfalls, boat trips and exploring cities, caves, castles, churches, traditional homes and the tiny coastline… wonderful!
  • Outer Hebrides: If Scotland had good weather they could be mistaken for a Pacific Island with crystal clear waters and white sand.
  • Surfing in Taghazout, Morocco

  • American National Parks, driving from LA to Monument Valley, Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Bryce, Zion and Vegas

Favourite places in Europe

  • Italian rail trip from north to south covering the Cinque Terre, Florence, Rome, Anzio, Naples, the gorgeous Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. Great landscapes, food and wine!
