A special birthday celebration! The beauty of the location matched by the company. The best of times.
A 30-year dream comes closer. House-hunting in the Dordogne. Beautiful scenery, outdoor living, friendly, community-spirited villages and enough fresh air to last a lifetime.
A few stunning days spent stomping through fresh snow around Loch Lomond. Luss and its surroundings, much like Pepper’s abundant joie de vivre, never fail to impress.
A family New Year spent on the East Coast. Beach walks, blue skies, doggie dilemmas and abundant snacking.
Les Plus Beaux Villages de France are always a holiday highlight and Lot & Dordogne have more than their fair share. That and more offensively cheap, top notch vin.

Callander is the eastern gateway to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs and is a joy for walkers, cyclists and outdoor adventurists. Fab route to Aberfoyle via Loch Venachar highly recommended.
After living in Scotland for seven years, at last… a proper cold and snowy winter! Pepper loved the fresh snow and no buses meant walks to work across Arthur’s Seat. Bliss.
A wee jaunt back to my home town and a visit to my folks. As far as quaint Cornish fishing villages go, Mevagissey hits the spot perfectly.

A final break for bike training through the glorious Trossachs. The most beautiful region in the UK? Quite possibly.
Can a multicultural society work? In Nice, yes. Blessed with a culture, cuisine and climate close to perfection, it would appear its residents all realise how fortunate they are.
Mull is a gem of an island and Tobermory the jewel in the crown. Stunning scenery and and even in winter best explored on a bike.
A 100 mile cycle challenge for Shelter meant a few trips to remote, magnificent scenery with undulating roads pleading to be ridden.
