cropped-escapetoesI’ve been mad about travelling since my first venturing outside the UK on a day trip to Calais in 1968. Not the most exotic baptism perhaps, but it seemed amazing at the time….   I followed this by a year as an exchange student in New Jersey, U.S.A. when I was 16 and that really lit the fuse.  The 45 years in between have been filled with many trips, some with partners, some with family, some alone, some with groups of friends.  Since my husband Bob followed me into retirement in 2012 our travelling has grown to the point where we now spend about 6 months of each year outside the UK.  When, I was 16 it seemed to me I would one day visit everywhere in the world.  Now I know, I won’t, but I’m still doing my best.  Some of my more recent trips are documented here for your interest and enjoyment.
