Santorini is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful of the Greek islands. I haven’t visited them all, or anywhere close, but I’m pretty confident in putting that statement forward. I’ve been lucky enough to visit Santorini on 4 or 5 different trips and each time I’m stunned by the breathtaking scenery of the caldera. The majority of visitors to Santorini (including myself!) are visiting on cruises, and most just check out the port town of Fira or the village of Oia. … →
Confession – I had never been to a music festival before. I’d always been put off by the thought of strange people, horrible toilets and copious amounts of rain- that’s what musical festivals in Scotland are like anyway! So, when I was invited to Musilac Festival in Aix-les-Bains in France I checked the line-up carefully first.

So why is Ephesus my favourite, and why have so few people even heard of it? Ephesus can be found near the port of Kusadasi on … →

Within less than two minutes I came across the stunning St. Georges Church. I really like this picture. I took it standing on the banks of the River Soane, which runs through the centre of the city. I love the mix of different colours of the buildings combined with the … →
I visited The Most Serene Republic of San Marino (fancy name, right?!) while I stayed in Rimini in the Emilia Romagna region in Italy. San Marino is the oldest republic in the world. And I think it’s probably the prettiest and most dramatic. I travelled to San Marino by bus, winding up the steep roads that offer increasingly breathtaking views as you ascend towards the top. When I got off the bus the first thing I wanted to do was admire the view. … →
