I was so fortunate recently to visit Breckenridge, Colorado, a little town in the Colorado ski passage about 2 hours west of Denver. Some good friends recently moved there, so we decided to combine a week of canyon-seeing with a week’s snowboarding/skiing. … More Breckenridge – the little snow town in the mountains
Three years ago I took a Dive Safari – My bucket list said I would see orang-utans in the wild, so I decided to combine that with some diving. I went across to Indonesia with a cracking little company called Dive Safari Asia. Pulah Weh is a tiny island on the edge of the Indian … More Dive200 – #157 – Octopus flirting!
I’ve now been incredibly fortunate enough to snowboard in both American and European resorts, and while I can’t say I’m now an expert in both, I did notice some distinct differences between the European slopes and their American counterparts. … More Snowboarding US versus Europe – the Snow-Off
A recent morning’s walk around the park at the end of my road gave me some lovely photo opportunities. London is a surprisingly green city, for the massive international capital that it is.
After marrying in Tuscany in 2013, we returned to Italy last year for a road trip around the beautiful Tuscan villages of Assisi, Cortona, Montepulciano, Chianti and (my favourite) Lucca. I could take photos of Tuscany forever!
Although I often post on here about some far flung countries and some fairly out-there experiences, such as swimming with whales, diving with sharks or travelling solo, sometimes the best travel experiences can be found right at home. … More Travelling back to my roots

I’d been missing dive action, after spending more time in city breaks than in the water recently. So once again I headed off into the Red (blue?) Sea as a single traveller to sample the delights of live aboard action. Even though I’m now no longer a single girl, I’m still a single diver – thankfully live aboard diving is still a great option. This year, I decided to give the Southern Red Sea a try, in the hope of some shark action. … More Alone again (not really) – on the Grand Sea Serpent
I’m sure many people’s immediate vision when they think of Hawai’i probably isn’t hiking. Beaches, most likely. Hula and grass skirts, possibly. Or Mai Tais if you’re thinking along the same lines as me. Certainly when I first booked the flights for Kauai, the western most Hawaiian island, hiking wasn’t first on my list of things to do. But it turned out to be be one of the first, and one of the most exhilarating things we did do during our stay, and something I’d do again in a heartbeat. Albeit, with more water. … More Hiking Hanakapi’ai; the Jurassic trek
