Travel Report: Plaza de la Merced, Malaga.

Plaza de la Merced. 2016-2017. The Spanish really know how to do a city square, perhaps more than any other nation I’ve visited. In this regard, Malaga sums up the Andalusian vibe nicely, with over a dozen gorgeous squares from which one can idle away an afternoon nibbling on tapas and guzzling red wine. My […]

2020: The Highs & Lows of a Nomadic Travel Blogger.

2020: The Highs & Lows of a Nomadic Travel Blogger. I’ve never done a post like this before, so you’ll have to bear with me. Truly, I hardly know where to start. Except to say, and forgive my language… What a f****ing crazy year! It blows my mind to think that a year ago today, […]

Fuengirola, The Costa del Sol. December 2016. After an initial flurry of Costa del Sol visits in the summer of 2016, I had admittedly forgotten about my strange travel project.

More often than not accompanied by a glass of blood-red tinto (wine). Or in my case a cheeky caña (little beer). You might also think of pristine, whitewashed villages and towns […]

Travel Report: El Caminito del Rey, Spain.

El Caminito del Rey. January 2017. Andalusia is a truly breathtaking region when it comes to natural landscapes. Whether out in the country or based in a village, town or city, one is never far away from stunning views. After nearly a year living in Southern Spain, I had already seen many of the region’s […]

Travel Report: The Grand Union Canal, Berkhamstead.

The Grand Union Canal, Berkhamstead. September 2019. I’d had an excellent couple of days retracing the steps of my youth around the Buckinghamshire towns of Chesham and Amersham. But now, on this pleasingly sunny autumnal morning, it was time to head back to London. I’d spent the night at my old friend Steppers’ place in Chesham. The […]
