It’s not just about the journey…

Ever since I was a little girl, I have wanted to travel. When asked my career aspirations when I was a child, I would lispingly respond between the missing teeth taken by the tooth fairy, “to become an air hosteth.”  I had visions of my well-groomed grownup self, breezily landing in exotic locations.

I have been fortunate to visit many countries I dreamed about…strolled on beaches littered with 1,500-year-old pottery shards in Greece…gazed on lush fields from the ramparts of castles in Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Ireland… listened to 17th century music in a 16th century chapel in Croatia….snorkelled on brilliantly-coloured coral heads in Vanuatu.

Travel is not just about the journey…it is about the destination. And about the wonderful people from myriad cultures who enrich your experience along the way.

This blog is the result of the inevitable collision between my three main joys: travelling,  photography, and writing, the latter of which I’ve trained in via a career path that led from advertising, to public relations, a brief journalism stint and a long haul as an academic. I hope you enjoy my stories.

  1. Ever since I was a little girl, I have wanted to travel too.
    (but not “to become an air hosteth.)
    Funny how as we age our ideas change!
    Staying in one place as a base and doing side trips
    is my ideal way to go back and see my fav parts of Europe
    and new ones too !
