Train travel for me is the best way of getting around, instantly more romantic and fun than flying or taking a dreaded bus ride. I have travelled on trains all over the world and it always surprises me that Scots never think of popping off to the continent on the train. There is a massive […]

If like me you love Portugal it can be hard whether to choose between its two great cities – the capital Lisbon and the not content to play second fiddle Porto. Well I’ve sat down and thought what I like best about both so that you can compare them for a piece in Woman’s Own. […]

I’ve been travelling out to the Czech capital of Prague since the early 1990s and I’ve seen many changes over the years, some positive and some not so positive. By the turn of the millennium the creative, nefarious spark that for me had defined much of the 1990s was in danger of being lost. I’m […]
