Travel Report: Queen’s Day, Amsterdam.

Back when I lived in Amsterdam, the biggest day of the year was always Queen’s Day. Livelier than New Year’s Eve and a damn sight crazier than Christmas, Queen’s Day Amsterdam took place on the 30th of April to celebrate the birthday of Queen Beatrix. However, the tradition of this intense, all-day city-wide street party […]

Travel Report: Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral (Paddy’s Wigwam), Liverpool.

May 2019. So this was one of CNN’s ugliest cathedrals in the world? This was the “hideous eyesore” that stands only as a personal insult to those who have to pray in it? This was the building that all those TripAdvisor moaners had ranted about to the point of near self-combustion? Not sure if I’m missing […]

Travel Report: St. Luke’s Bombed Out Church, Liverpool.

May 2019. Head onto Leighton Literature’s search bar, type in church and you’ll get a whole bunch of articles zipping up from across 30 odd countries. And yet I’m still confident that until now I haven’t blogged about anything quite like Liverpool’s amazing St. Luke’s Church, better known to visitors as The Bombed Out Church. Built […]

But if you find yourself getting a little bogged down in museum-ness and are in need of some fresh sea air, I can highly recommend a thirty-minute train […]

So ferry cross the Mersey, ’cause this land’s the place I love and here I’ll stay”. May 2019. And so goes the 1964 hit song Ferry Cross The Mersey […]

Celebrating 500 Travel Reports!

Today I published my 500th travel report with my article on Tooting Bec Common in London. This is cause for celebration because a) five hundred is a sexy number and b) I never thought I’d get this far! Now I kinda like the sound of 1000.  These articles of mine have evolved over time from simple […]

Travel Report: Kodanad Elephant Sanctuary – Kerala, India.

April 2004. Kodanad Elephant Sanctuary was one of Kerala’s most respected elephant training centres. Set in and around the Malayattoor Forest Range on the southern banks of The Periyar River, I came here at the tail end of my India travels in 2004 to meet, feed and wash Kodanad’s community of loveable elephants. April 2004. […]
