  • Andalucia: Seville, Cordoba, Granada and Ronda

    London, United Kingdom Travel 25 Feb 2025

    Just picture undulating mountain slopes, cork and olive plantations, oaks and fir trees. Whitewashed villages with window grilles and narrow cobbled alleys. This is Andalucia whose very name conjures up an alluring sense of exoticism and adventure. The Islamic artistry, the bull-fighting and the... Read more

  • Costa Rica

    London, United Kingdom Travel 20 Feb 2025

    ‘Pura vida’ is the local expression of their life force. The landscape of Costa Rica and her biodiversity is simply magical: thick lush rainforests, with their dense foliage, uncrowded pristine beaches, steep mountains and majestic volcanoes and waterfalls, the perfect backdrop for the sheer wonder...

  • Exmoor and the Peak District

    London, United Kingdom Travel 20 Feb 2025

    For decades I have been coming to these two of Britain’s most loved and unspoilt National Parks. My revisits never seem a repeat. It’s all about the innocence, the unspoilt landscape and the sense of yesteryear. Out on Exmoor there’s a sensory overload: the hills roll, the valleys swoop down and the... Read more

  • Florence

    London, United Kingdom Travel 20 Feb 2025

    No return visit is ever a repeat. After over twenty visits I now know with assurance the best tips and personal finds, the dos and the don’ts, to lend even to guidebooks as I share my affection for the churches, galleries, walks, markets, restaurants, hotels and shops. As an art historian I explore... Read more

  • Greece’s Kefalonia

    London, United Kingdom Travel 20 Feb 2025

    The restricting impact of Covid made me suddenly zealous for this large, expansive idyll of a Greek island which I visited three times to explore its entirety. It’s relatively unscathed by tourists, unlike neighbouring Corfu and Zante as the locals are healthily indifferent to the need for a... Read more

  • Istanbul

    London, United Kingdom Travel 20 Feb 2025

    Western fascination with the exoticism of this Ottoman world is whetted by the notion of calligraphy and kilims, eunuchs and seraglios, caravanserai and hammams, belly dancers and dervishes, concubines and harems, sultans and viziers, Turkish delights and smoking hookahs. It’s really the Bosphorus... Read more

  • Italian Lakes: Como and Garda

    London, United Kingdom Travel 20 Feb 2025

    Where better to listen to the sound of bobbing boats and rippling shores, watch the watercraft that are the varnished ‘rivas’ and witness what the Italians do best: ‘dolce far niente’, take pleasure in relaxing? With their imagination and eye the Italians really know how to make the most of often... Read more

  • London’s Top New Hotels

    London, United Kingdom Travel 20 Feb 2025

    Once again London is open to all and sundry and while we’ve all been locked down around the world, here in this prestigious city new ventures have been preparing to launch or relaunch with a vengeance and with some staggering results. I experience and review these nine new entrants: The Guardsman... Read more

  • Portugal’s Unsung Coast (Alentejo)

    London, United Kingdom Travel 20 Feb 2025

    The vast majority of Brits only know of the central Algarve with its busy beaches, golf courses and the white-washed walls of villa complexes. The extremities of the Algarve are wild and in their desolation is a sense of the infinite with long strands of beach and the full force of the Atlantic’s... Read more

  • Venice

    London, United Kingdom Travel 20 Feb 2025

    I am passionate about Venice having been there over twenty times and am keen to tell tourists how to avoid their own kind and how best to enjoy the city away from the ‘yellow line’ from the station via the Rialto to St. Marco as well as to vary the expanse to escape claustrophobia. For example,... Read more
