If you haven’t heard of Ostrog Monastery before, you may well have seen photographs of it. Beautiful, whitewashed Manastir Ostrog is built seemingly impossibly into a vertical cliff face, almost a kilometre above the fertile Zeta Valley in central Montenegro. When Stu and I were busy planning our 7-day road trip around the country, this incredible landmark […]
I’ve known two of my close friends, Gloria and Kath, since Sixth Form. Although we all used to live in Shrewsbury (where I’m still based), Gloria has since moved up to Preston and Kath moved to Newcastle but now resides in Suffolk. Consequently it has become incredibly difficult for the three of us to get […]

Knowing where to look for inspiration is one of the first hurdles you’ll encounter. I’m certainly no expert, but I’ve planned […]
In spite of its proximity to the UK, the availability of cheap flights from at least three major UK airports, and the fact that English is widely spoken almost everywhere, Luxembourg remains one of Europe’s lesser-visited countries. In 2015 both France and Germany (two of Luxembourg’s neighbours) featured in the top 5 list of the […]
