  • Strolling the streets of Positano

    One of the best parts of visiting Positano is a stroll through the roads and lanes from the upper town to the beach-side restaurants, stopping off in the shops and for ice-cream on the way.

  • Cinque Terre, from the archives

    In beginning to clear out the folders in my website this lunchtime, which contain photos and files I have used on the site since its relaunch in 2006, I came across a set of photos from a trip to the Cinque Terre region of north-western Italy in 2004. The most enduring memories of the holiday […]

  • Over the sky to Skye

    …and Mull, and Glencoe, and Cromarty… I’m exceptionally looking forward to flying to Scotland soon, for a holiday during which Jo and I will get to see the west coast of Scotland and the “Western Isles” again. It’s been getting on for three years since we were last on the west coast, and a full […]

  • Back in town

    I’m on the train back to the provinces after a fleeting visit of around 36 hours to London. It’s been incredibly tiring as I’ve tried to pack in as much as I can in the time I’ve had. The daily travel cards I’ve bought – at a fairly reasonable £7 each – have done their […]

  • Flims, Graubünden

    Jo and I pledged to one another that we will go on holiday during the first week of October every year and celebrate our wedding anniversary by visiting somewhere new together. This year, we chose the south eastern Swiss canton of Graubünden as our destination. The article contains a gallery of photos from our trip.

  • Off to Salina

    Time flies; it’s already two weeks shy of a year since my last trip to Italy with Jo. We’re off again on Thursday, this time to the tiny island of Salina, amongst the Aeolian group of islands off the north coast of Sicily. As is usual before a holiday, I have much to wrap up […]

  • Positano, Italy

  • Back from the Amalfi Coast

    My photos from Italy are coming online over the next few days at Flickr, where each image is accompanied by a small narrative. One of my favourite memories of the whole holiday was sitting at the bus stop on our way back up from the beach, after dinner. The hill up from the sea front, […]
