10. Glyndwr Vineyard - The Vale of Glamorgan, Wales

Peaceful, beautiful, simple.

Glyndwr Vineyard, Wales' largest and oldest vineyard (and arguably best), just outside of the busy Welsh town of Cowbridge, is an ideal location to base yourself when exploring the wonderfu...

Everyone is doing their bit in this photograph taken in Venice. The eye is naturally drawn to the figure in the background, who unknowingly adds something extra to the photograph because of how they are dressed.

         Whenever I think of Milos, I am filled with dread. Don't get me wrong, it is my most favourite place in the world right now. A gem in the Cyclades, home of the Venus de Milo and a portal back in time..... Although it is...

   Booking the right flight can have many positive knock on effects. The cost, for one thing. I've known friends who have paid $2000 Australian Dollars more for the same flight, to the same place at the same time, albeit roughly. I'm not a fan of a Travel Agent booking...

   As I've mentioned before, the best hotel isn't always the right hotel for you. Often the swankiest beast in town is full of guests who have no idea how privileged or fortunate they are to be staying there. This doesn't always provide the best atmosphere for those se...

Extraordinary day again. Went for a walk over the hills from Emirovigli to Oia. Maybe an hour or two, depending on stopping for photo's and allowing those in more of a rush to bundle past. I got to Oia at about 2ish. Lovely walk, perfect temperature and timed it well f...
