Do you have a bucket list? Or maybe a travel wish list? I do, I call it my Wanderlust List. It’s a list of incredible world wonders that I dream of experiencing some day. Some are epic adventures others are more ordinary – it’s a good mix. They may never happen but it’s good to have a dream.

An Isle of Man short break – what to see and do

An Isle of Man short break – what to see and do

An Isle of Man short break makes for the perfect UK weekend away without travelling too far from home. If you take a trip across the water and visit one of Britain’s islands then it sort of feels like you’ve gone overseas anyway.

The first of my Isle of Man short breaks showed me that this little island in the Irish Sea is the perfect destination for a UK staycation. And that it’s not just for TT petrol heads. There’s a lot to see and do on the Isle of Man that doesn’t involve burning rubber.

Peru – My Dream Destination

There’s a place on my travel wish list that has fascinated and intrigued me since I first discovered its existence. A place of ancient civilizations, mountain-top ruins and home to one of mankind’s greatest mysteries. A place where you’ll find snow-capped mountains, the world’s deepest canyons and a vibrant swathe of dense tropical rainforest.

Where the people are welcoming, creative and colourful and a country whose capital is considered to be one of the best cuisine destinations in the world. Here are some of the reasons why Peru is calling me.

Greek Island holidays were top of the list for family getaways when the kids were young. I have memories of sunny, cloud-free days spent exploring Rhodes old town, dipping into warm turquoise seas around Corfu and of sleek dolphins slip-streaming the boat during a trip from Skiathos. But that was a long time ago. Too long ago, and a day excursion to Mykonos and Delos during a cruise last year got me thinking that it’s time I gave the Greek Islands some proper attention again.
