Travel Report: Burano Island, Italy.

January 2008. The pretty little Italian island of Burano sits in the northern Venetian Lagoon, just a forty-five minute boat ride from the city of Venice.

Travel Report: Venice.

January 2008. It’s still a bit of a head scratcher for me when I think about how little I’ve seen of Italy.

Just about everything about India thus far had been nothing short of a relentless assault on the senses, including the seemingly simple process of boarding a train. […]

Naturally I was curious to check out this unique overseas territory and sample its Britain-in-the-sun tagline for myself. Even the process of […]

Travel Report: Paris.

September 2006. It’s almost incomprehensible to me that my one and only visit to Paris was over thirteen years ago! In truth the French capital had never been high on my bucket list, as I’d always felt a bit indifferent about France as a travel destination. But then I found myself in an exciting new […]
