Best Moments

  • Travelling around Scandinavia on my own with just a rucksack and no real plan in mind!

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Day four of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and realising I had accidentally left all my treats and chocolate back at the previous night's camp. A devastated woman on the brink of despair...

The Emerald Isle - Our Trip to Ireland

Top Secret James Bond Experiences

If you asked us who our favourite British people are - real or fictitious - we'd have to say The Queen (obviously), JK Rowling (for giving us Harry Potter) and James Bond. The super suave Secret Service agent has been keeping our country safe since 1953, when Ian Fleming wrote the first Bond…

A Whisky Tour of Scotland

Scotland from the Sea

To quote Princess Anne 'sailing on a sunny day in Scotland is the nearest thing to heaven anyone will ever get on this earth…' and I couldn't say it better myself. Scotland has some of the best scenery and wildlife in the world and I was lucky enough to experience it all… by sea.
