I’ve always enjoyed the idea of being a travel blogger and maintaining a diary of my adventures and as such created this travel blog section. The places that I’ve visited in recent years all feature here including my most recent trips to Italy and America where I offer tips and advice on the best locations and excursions to help anyone thinking of visiting the same places.
