Our week-long Italy trip centered around the most amazingly family friendly villa in Umbria. I’ve actually never seen accommodation so geared up for families with children, from tots to teens.

Stonehenge would probably be pretty high on any non-Brit tourist’s wish list. Some of us get a bit blase about our history in Britain, we’re forever tripping over castles, stately homes and prehistoric monoliths. I must have driven past Stonehenge 20 times in my life and never, ever, stopped. Not because I don’t think it’s …

Barry Island Wales is part of my childhood. I grew up just a few miles away and we regularly visited for beach strolls, fish and chips and Pleasure Park fun. Watching Gavin and Stacey sitting on Barry Island Beach from miles away in Australia made me homesick, so we’re back, to share Barry Island with …
