Itching to visit the historic Hörnlihütte in Zermatt.
The small town of Gretna Green, which lies alongside the M6/A74M on the border between Scotland and England, is one of the most popular wedding destinations in the world.
Our holiday to the south of England this summer took us to the most south-westerly point of the British mainland.
Photographing picturesque villages amongst the rolling hills of canton Basel-Land.
Save your money for fun stuff and stay at a Premier Inn when you're in London. Chain hotels, but excellent locations, high standards and free wifi.
There’s a trend these days for people to use the word “stunning”: from tabloid newspapers to t.v. presenters. And their use of the word so often makes everyone else use it. A view of the sea: “stunning”. A fashionable dress: “stunning”. A film star looking average on a red carpet somewhere: “stunning”. I think that use of the word needs a bit more…
Hiking along a panoramic path above the lake at Oeschinensee and then over-doing it on a much steeper, rockier path on the way to the Blümlisalphütte.
The Schilthorn Cableway has released a new short advertising film today, and as usual, it makes me want to head for Mürren straight away.

As time goes on, we’re getting to see more and more new parts of the U.K. One goal we’ve set ourselves is to visit all of the most remote corners of the British “mainland”, as well as more remote spots on outlying islands when we can. We’ve already visited John o’Groats and Dunnet Head – the most northerly point…
Whilst many travel up to the top of the Niederhorn ridge by cable car – one of the most expensive ones by distance in the whole region – there’s a much better alternative for the fitter visitor. There’s a private, tolled road leading up from Waldegg, at Beatenberg, to farm buildings on the mountain, which drivers can use by purchasing a…
I was a little disappointed that the “castle” at Tintagel was little more than a few bits of wall at the coast. (I suppose I have been spoiled by the castle ruins at Dunnotar and Tantallon.) Our walk along the coast path, doing battle with the wind, was lovely anyway, with foxgloves (a memory from childhood holidays in…
We recently spent a lovely couple of weeks on holiday, touring the south of England and spending a full week in Cornwall. On arrival at the self-catering cottage we’d booked, we chose to make things easy for ourselves and head to the Port William Inn for a pub dinner in one of the few buildings at the seaward end of a valley leading…
A testing and rewarding hike from the peat moorland of Lombachalp to two summits on the vertiginous Brienzergrat ridge.
It’s always nice to enjoy a time lapse sequence filmed in Swiss locations. Even more so to enjoy one filmed in places across the region I call home – Canton Bern.
A two-thousand-year old Happy Arch.
