Spring is in the air, the sight of the daffodils and the sound of birdsong puts a bounce back in your step after the long, cold winter months. A lovely short break is in most peoples thoughts. Paris is in mine. My first trip to Paris with my beau was in early September. Quite some time […]
Crémant has been hitting the press lately and is tipped to take over from the nation’s well-loved Prosecco. With headlines like this I thought I must give it a try! Firstly, what is Crémant? Crémant is a sparkling wine made in seven regions in France. Crémant d’Alsace, Crémant de Bourgogne, Crémant de Die, Crémant de Loire, Crémant du Jura, Crémantde Bourdeaux and Crémant […]
As starts to the day go, watching the sun rise over Africa from a few hundred feet up in the air is as good as early morning experiences get. Slowly drifting over Moroccan plains, suspended from a huge orange balloon, warmed by the heat of the gas burners, and enjoying the view of the magnificent […]
When not away on travels and adventures it is always a pleasure to take in some local exploring closer to home. It is also a treat to enjoy these local adventures with a wonderful companion. I do have the pleasure of looking after Rusty, the Red and White Border Collie from time to time, and […]
Wyming Brook Nature Reserve near Sheffield, South Yorkshire is a site of special scientific interest close to Rivlin Dam reservoir just off the A57. This is such a scenic area and popular with walkers and photographers for obvious reasons. We usually park at Rivlin Dam car park from the A57 but there’s a dedicated car park higher up and close to Redmires Reservoirs off Redmires Road. We discovered Wyming Brook nature reserve completely accidentally after visiting the area for the […]

It is a beautiful country- but the beauty doesn’t end with fall – it just begins. Perhaps it is the attitude of the “locals” where snowfall doesn’t mean clogged streets with impossible parking – but a chance to ski, or […]
It was only halfway through my second day that I’d managed to adjust my senses to the sounds, sights, and sheer chaos of old town Marrakech. The labyrinth-like walkways of the souks feel claustrophobic as stall owners clamour for your attention. Motorbikes weave in and out of paths that should be the sole preserve of […]
The Isles of Scilly are fast gaining a reputation as a foodie destination thanks to the somewhat surprising array of locally-produced food and drink on offer there. From freshly caught seafood to the jam and clotted cream on delicious home-baked scones, much of the food you can enjoy on Scilly is grown, reared or produced on one of the 5 inhabited islands. But what about wild food? We know from archaeological finds that hunter-gatherers once roamed the […]
There’s nothing like good memories to warm the soul and an outing to Stanage Edge in the Derbyshire Peak District and discovering Robin Hoods cave will do just that, what a fun day trip, a memorable stroll with stunning views! Stanage Edge not only has pride of place in the hearts of hikers and climbers but is steadfast in my heart with glowing memories […]
It was time for another walk. The second of a fantastic HF Holidays weekend, walking many miles in the Yorkshire Dales. The variety was to be so apparent and a wonderful day in the wintry fresh air it was going to be. An area I know and love very well from previous walks, but a […]
