  • We had lunch at the Foss Hotel, overlooking the beautiful Lake Myvatn. It looks beautiful, but the name means ‘Midge Lake’ in Icelandic. The guide books mostly advise drastic ‘midgie counter-measures’; for […]

  • The ruined city of Bhangarh, said to be the most haunted place in India. Along the street of shops towards the Palace, I was rather reminded of the ruins of Pompei.

  • Tea Time… Moroccan style. This is mint tea; extremely popular in Morocco, and said to cure everything from bubonic plague to ingrowing toenails.

  • Colourful Moroccan pots on a market stall in Essaouira. The conical vessels are tagines, used to make a delicious stew of the same name.

  • The object of the day was the Immouzer Cascades, in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains. When we got there, there wasn’t any water in the Falls! But, having passed through scenery like this on the way there, it didn’t really matter.

  • We visited a factory complex in Jaipur, where, under a verandah, workers sat, doing multi-coloured block printing on fabric. Just the sort of thing you did when you made those ‘potato prints’ in kindergarten, but […]

  • It’s been many years since we visited Kenya, but I’ll always remember Jacob, our safari guide. He had what seemed an infallible system:

    ‘There are no elephants here!’ he would say, or ‘We will see no lions tod […]

  • The rickshaw isn’t the most comfortable way to get around Delhi. But, it’s probably the quickest … and it makes a super camera platform, from which to capture the best street scenes.

  • Cruising along the River Danube, you’ll encounter a rather confusing succession of quaint, mediaeval towns ending with –burg or -berg. I had to make careful notes, and all my photos and videos are dat […]

  • The Qutb Minar Tower is the tallest brick-built structure in the world. It lies within the ruins of the Quwwat al Islam mosque, started in 1193 to announce the arrival of the Muslim sultans, who were to rule India […]

  • On our tour of Germany, I was hard put to find synonyms for ‘mediaeval’, ‘quirky’, ‘fairy tale’ etc. to describe the towns we visited. But, if you had to pick just one from those towns, it would have to be the […]

  • When the citizens of Bamberg built their Town Hall in the Middle Ages, the citizens on both sides of the river wanted the privilege of having the Town Hall in their midst. They couldn’t reach an agreement as to […]

  • This garden was laid out in tribute to Thomas Howard, 14th Earl of Arundel (late 16th/early 17th Century) who was known as the ‘Collector Earl’ because he collected exotic plants from far and wide.

  • ‘Each stranger arriving at Vienna will be asked by a police officer, as soon as the train reaches the terminus, for his travelling pass, for which a certificate will be handed him, which binds him to enquire after […]

  • A quiet village in the Wachau Valley, noted for vineyards and the ruined castle in which Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned in the 12th Century.

  • I’ll be blogging my way through southern Germany shortly, so I shall be rather over-using the words ‘quaint’, ‘mediaeval’, ‘half-timbered’ and ‘charming’. So, I shall start the ball rolling in… England; at Much […]

  • It was a little too early in the year to see Schönbrunn Palace at its very best. It’s imposing enough now, but, later, when the gardens are in full bloom. it must really be a sight to see.

  • River cruise: Dawn on the Danube.

  • The present structure was built in the 19th Century, on the site of a defensive work which would be manned by the fishermen responsible for the defence of this stretch of the river. In its present form, it’s a […]

  • It was a little early in the year to see the Keukenhof Gardens at their very best … but well worth the visit, nevertheless. And, nothing like as crowded as it can get.
