Our end of year review 2016

In Our Journeys by GaryLeave a Comment

A world through new eyes

2016 has been our first year thinking as travel writers, although our travels, and the list of destinations has been similar to our previous years wanderings. It's been exciting, tiring, but, as always, rewarding.

The Spring Break

Valencia, and the first time to feel the warmth of the Spanish sun on our skins. A food & drink odyssey, where thinking a little differently meant more fun in the sun.

The Heart of London

Some may say a busman's holiday, but the City of London is a place close to both of our hearts and a wonderful place to explore. We took a weekend break to discover a bit more about the Square Mile, and a little beyond its borders.

Tales from the City

A family celebration

What better way for a family to have fun at a relaxed pace than the waterways of England.

The tales from that adventure can be found here.

A little bit of Fizz

A week long break through the Champagne Region of France, picking 3 towns as our bases. This road trip gave us the opportunity to explore the vineyards, and quaint towns of the region. With the car safely tucked up at night, the chance to enjoy a few bubbles too.

Spain, old & new

A 3 week road trip through Spain, visiting redeveloped areas such as Bilbao in the north, to classic cities such as Segovia, and old favourites such as Seville. 3 wonderful weeks, 10 destinations, 8 different regions - one word Wow!
