Five places that I want to visit off the beaten track…

2020 has been an awful year for travel. If you've read my other posts on some of the plans for this year I'm really sad it's not happening! However it's not all about the usual places to travel to. I've also got a bucket list of the places that perhaps aren't in all the travel guides. There are plenty of reasons behind each one. However here are five places that I want to visit off the beaten track... Officially I've been to North Korea. Well when I say officially I've been into the DMZ area between North and South when I was working in South Korea a few years back. Since then I've been totally fascinated with the country and…

Route 66 Missouri (part 1)

When you enter St Louis you come in via the state of Illinois. When you leave St Louis you are on Route 66 Missouri. St Louis for us was probably the "worst" city of the Route 66. I don't know what it was about the city - but for us it was a little disappointing and probably one of the only times we didn't feel safe on Route 66. We stayed downtown in a chain hotel and our night in the city walked to the Gateway Arch to get a good sight of the city at night. For me this was great to see a city at night from on high - but I'm sure that in the day time…

Hotel Indigo Bath Review

I love a good Indigo Hotel! Of all the reviews you'll find on this site - the Indigo brand is one of my favourites. So when the team at Hotel Indigo Bath asked me to do a review for them of their newly opened hotel I was more than willing! The Indigo hotel chain which is part of the IHG group of hotels is their more boutique brand. Not so much copy and paste like you might find in a Holiday Inn. More the type which plays on local history, the local styling etc... Earlier in 2020 I stayed at Hotel Indigo Stratford and this was an excellent example. Lots of theatrical references, playing on the Shakespeare name etc... I…

Making Travel Feasible During the Pandemic

2020 has been a bad year for travel. If you had a getaway booked at the start of the year, there’s a good chance that it got cancelled, or your government advised you against going. How do you go about though making Travel Feasible During the Pandemic? Those of us with a little wanderlust, sense of adventure or urge to take a break have probably feeling a little lost right now. Sure, you may not be able to jet off around the world as and when you please like you might have at the beginning of the year. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t have a break from your usual routine of work, childcare and other responsibilities. There are…

Travelling in Covid

Last week I wrote a post about returning to football in Covid times. I had to travel last week to Germany for business and it was the first time that I had travelled abroad since February. For someone who’s usually on a plane every few weeks it was a bit of shock! However how did I find the experience of Travelling in Covid? The first thing to throw me was booking! We have to book through a approval process with work and as I said I haven’t travelled in months. I had forgotten how to book it. Such a stupid thing to say - but it’s like when I hadn’t filled the car up in months, just doing those things…
