Hi all. Today I wanted to feature this amazing travel vlogger from Iraq. When one is on the tourist trail, when one can be I guess, you generally don't meet a lot of travellers from Iraq, but Baderkhan Amer Badran is travelling the world and making a name for himself whilst he does it.
Foto Friday now takes you to destination Turkey, and the ancient city of Ephesus. This facade is for the 'Library of Celsus', and I think it's amazing that it still stands when the rest of the building does not! Thanks for popping by - May the Journey Never End!
Hi all. It's Friday, FOTO Friday in fact, and today I take you to an amazing castle, or if you like 'palace', in Romania. It's as amazing inside as out, but we weren't allowed to take photos inside 😦 So... enjoy this one! Thanks for popping by - May the Journey Never End!
At 1813 kilometres, I think this is longest travel story I have written about in my ‘Epic Journeys’ series. Come join me as I take a single bus from Tabriz to Istanbul!
Twas this day in 2016, and my wife and I were leaving Buenos Aires in what was to be a very long day!
Yesterday was the 23rd of November, the 57th anniversary of the broadcast of the first episode of Doctor Who. One of the reasons the UK is one of my favorite destinations in the world is its attachment to Doctor Who. Here are some Doctor Who related photos to celebrate!
Buenos Aires is a strange city - beautiful but with an edge of danger, with history and some of the most opulent buildings you can imagine. What exactly is the mystique of the Argentine capital?
YES new exclusive interview today! And today it's with Anna Koss from Germany, who runs the blog 'The World of Cruise and Travel', which as the title suggests, is about travel and indeed the world of cruising. I discovered her blog earlier this year and have really enjoyed her posts. It's great to learn a bit about the world of cruises. 2020 has not been kind to the cruise industry, with images of cruise ships being broken up being shown on the news here lately, but one day (we all hope) 2020 will be a distant memory, and cruises will be back. A good friend of mine used to work on cruise ships and loved it. So it's great to get a little bit of opinion and more about cruises - I have NEVER been on a cruise in my life by the way! So anyways, I'm sure you'll enjoy my interview with Anna Koss!
Many years ago now, Saddam Hussein was still in power in Iraq, and in the north of the country, in Kurdistan, he built himself a palace at the top of a mountain. These days, the few tourists that do dare to tip their toes in the destination that is Iraq often end up visiting this palace, now a shell of the building it once was.
Another video for you today, shot back in late October (the 31st actually) as I took my first tentative steps into Melbourne town after lockdown was first eased.
