Travel Report: Tasmajdan Park, Belgrade.

Tasmajdan Park, Belgrade. August 2019. I’ll never forget my first summer in Belgrade. It was the early days of my relationship with Sladja and there was a palpable sense of excitement and expectancy between us. In fact, I had come to the Serbian capital so that… at long last… we could finally hang out. An […]

Travel Report: A Long Ago Weekend in Paris.

A Long Ago Weekend in Paris. September 2006. I have read countless travel blogs about Paris over the years. Moreover, I enjoyed Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and just adore Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s perfect, Paris-set romantic comedy Amelie. (I once interviewed Jeunet, but that’s another story). Usually, whenever I get these little tastes of the French capital, I […]

Travel Report: Chesham, England.

Chesham, England. August 2019. The leafy English market town of Chesham in Buckinghamshire isn’t an exciting place. In fact, one might say it has very little to entice the passing traveler. While nobody could describe Chesham as the pulsating heart of England, it does occupy a special place in my heart. Because, ladies and gentlemen, Chesham was […]

Travel Report: Old Amersham, England.

Old Amersham. August 2019. I’ve always been just a little envious of people who’ve had the same family house all their lives.

The World of Beatrix Potter, Bowness-on-Windermere, England. May 2019. There is a host of brilliant English children’s authors who inspired my love for literature as a kid. A.A. Milne… Roger Hargreaves… Roald Dahl… Robin Jarvis… to name but a few. Growing up, I was also aware of Beatrix Potter, though for reasons that escape me […]

Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway & Lake Windermere Cruise.

The Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway & Windermere Lake Cruise. May 2019. My action-packed stay in Lancashire visiting Uncle D was drawing to a close. Soon, I’d be on a train humming up to Scotland for the next leg of my UK adventures. However, I simply couldn’t leave the region without dipping into Cumbria for a […]

An Afternoon Stroll Around Morecambe, Lancashire.

An Afternoon Stroll Around Morecambe, Lancashire. May 2019. It was a wonderfully sunny afternoon in the northwest of England as I boarded the train from Lancaster to Morecambe. Just before getting on, I’d treated myself to the latest iPhone. Swish went the bank card… £1000…. and boom I’d finally gotten myself the camera I’d wanted for […]

A Flying Visit to Warton Village, Lancashire.

A Flying Visit to Warton Village, Lancashire, England. May 2019. Uncle D and I were definitely in need of a breather. In fact, we’d been walking for hours and the prospect of a restful pint was just what we needed. After all, our efforts had seen us hike through the stunning Leighton Moss Nature Reserve. […]
