I couldn’t resist the opportunity for one more night on a 747 – even if it wouldn’t take me anywhere!
An unusual return to Sweden, exploring a series of tunnels and tubes in Stockholm.
Exploring Armenia’s capital, host to the extraordinary travel festival.
My first new country since 2019 was one I’d never sought out: the UAE.
The chance to join Norse Atlantic’s first flight from London to Oslo seemed an ideal excuse to revisit one of my favourite countries.

Reviving a travel plan from 2020, I headed to Switzerland for the first bouldering world cup of the season.
Another heavily disrupted year, but some hopes of a return to (new) normal.
Where and how I found myself travelling in 2019.
A group trip to Tuscany presented many opportunities to explore the region – from its famous cities to sleepy villages, via peaceful hiking trails (and a lot of gelato).
An overview of my Club Europe flights and sightseeing in Salzburg; plus a luxury hotel that didn’t quite hit the mark.
I spent a few relaxing days by the Hallstätter See, staying in Obertraun and heading up into Dachstein Krippenstein.

Uncooperative schedules and living outside London meant a four flight round trip to Malta – involving four different airlines and four different countries!

Our final hotel for the trip went above and beyond in meeting an unusual special request…
We spent much of our time in Portland hiding from the heat in our hotel room; thanks to a remarkable upgrade, we had a lot of room to hide in.
With plenty of time to explore Seattle – twice – during this holiday, we were able to appreciate a few different neighbourhoods that offered a more relaxed pace than the city centre – and even a taste of local life.
The EURO conference series lead me to Valencia, Spain, where despite a busy schedule of talks and unforgiving heat I was able to fit in a bit of sightseeing.
