Marseille It wasn't as if these museums were unfortunately closed for one reason… Lire la suite Art- In all its glory

The dual appeal of parking next to a train track.
Whilst traveling through Europe I've never perched myself next to train tracks for obvious reasons, though here in southern France the train tracks have added two rather pleasant attributes. Firstly there is the nostalgic element, an almost child like amazement at the sheer size and noise of the mass of steel that barrels through at… Lire la suite The dual appeal of parking next to a train track.
It’s starting to feel a little like England
I have to admit when I decided to try living here in southern France, like so many Brits, (but not so many quite like me, I'm unique remember) I didn't quite count on seeing so much rain and overcast skies. Perhaps this has been an unusual spring, perhaps not, but I'm starting to get a… Lire la suite It’s starting to feel a little like England
Traveling solo: My version of the truth.

I don't wear a watch and rarely follow a schedule, I rise just after dawn that's if I've managed to be in bed before midnight. Cooking most of my meals from scratch and eating when I'm hungry, life… Lire la suite Traveling solo: My version of the truth.

I now realise why the word serendipity really suits my style, the writer Horace Walpole created the word in 1754 to describe something that happened as a pleasant surprise, referring to a story called The Three Princes of Serendip, (the old name for Sri Lanka) it certainly seems to resonate… Lire la suite Serendipity style!

A day at the beach I'm not exactly the beach type, getting myself into a bathing suit has never been my favourite pass time but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the beach. I do! The Italians seem to love their beaches, Trieste, a nearby city with its shipping history was notably empty of locals,… Lire la suite Grado, Italy
Late but still in my thoughts. Considering I had no plan, it didn't surprise me one bit to find myself in Morocco, that's what this Serendipity free flow is all about. I have no idea where my journey will take me, as I go I get many invitations to visit other countries but even that… Lire la suite Morocco, Africa
More than just oranges! As much as I love cities and architecture the idea of driving into one with Ziggy is a little daunting, without power steering navigating some city streets can be somewhat stressful. Seville is no exception, but I really had no choice, all my equipment was telling me I had to go… Lire la suite Seville, Spain
