Sizing up another busy year of travel.
Another climbing-inspired trip to Switzerland, this time for the World Championships.
An overdue return to the Netherlands, and a bit more of Belgium.
An unusual return to Sweden, exploring a series of tunnels and tubes in Stockholm.

Exploring Armenia’s capital, host to the extraordinary travel festival.
The chance to join Norse Atlantic’s first flight from London to Oslo seemed an ideal excuse to revisit one of my favourite countries.

Comparing BA’s new Club Suite to the familiar Club World; plus first class on Alaska Airlines.

Trying out the high speed AVE services, in both first and standard class.
