British road trip view

The (not so) great British summer is back… Enjoy the rainy barbecues and the cold picnics if like me you are based there!

Grey day

Getting ready for the bank holiday weekend! The tradition in England is for the weather to be bad, so let’s hope it’s an nontraditional one!

Where I have been so far – 2017

Saying that travelling is my favourite hobby is an understatement. I have been to 5 continents and visited 22 countries, so far. Not bad but I am aiming to do better!

Hopefully I will add at least one other country to the list by the end of the year (Portugal or Iceland I think), but in the meantime, here is where I have been so far!

The hills are alive

Just want to run across this field while signing “The hills are alive“. Channelling my inner Julie Andrews.

Black mountains, silver lake

Is it New Zealand? No, just England.
