Europe Travel Stories
Climbing Musala: the Everest of the Balkans When I first started blogging several years ago I promised myself to help my readers find the few remaining places in Bulgaria without a cellphone network. One of those places, as I have recently discovered, is the highest peak on the Balkans, our local Everest - Musala. If the lack of cellphone coverage isn't a reason enough for you to pack your backpack and head off to the mountains, I hope... Read more >>>
Famous but unknown - Lancaster If you hear the word Lancaster, what does the word conjure up? It's a well-known word, one often associated with style or class, or something in history maybe. It's the name of many top-notch hotels, characters in Shakespeare, high class ladies' toiletries, warring medieval families and of movie stars or numerous towns around the globe.

Alps Beneath Your Bike The speedo was nudging 180 and still they flashed past. Up to 190 and the overtaking slowed, but they were still pulling away from us in the outside lane. Determined not to be outdone I pulled into the left lane and latched on to the tail of one of these missiles and poured on some coals. A white BMW 525i and our metallic green K100LT... Read more >>>

However, did you know that you will find some of the most beautiful Roman ruins in the south of France? In the little-known city of Nimes, just over an hour away from the major port hub...

The Fun O'The Fayre In a tranquil English village, with pretty stone-built cottages huddled together along a murmuring river, I had some time to take a wander around. In the tiny out-of-the-way Lancashire village of Wray, where tumbling rose briers obscured worn dates reading "1600-and-something" carved unevenly above doorways, there were no tea rooms,...

Become a Savvy Traveller The Duomo in Milan. At first site, the size alone overwhelms the senses. As you draw closer, colossal figures fill all space and block the sky. Magnificent doors draw you with anticipation into cool darkness, and suddenly everything wonderful surrounds you. Stained glass and flying buttresses, stone and jewels, incense and candles, angels...
