Travel, from the Grand Tour to Holidays and breaks


Travel, from the Grand Tour to Holidays and breaks


As a child my parents took me on several touring holidays in the UK and Ireland. I have continued the tradition of touring holidays in Great Britain into adulthood and with the family. I like to travel and have been lucky enough to have been able to extensively explore Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America, in addition to Great Britain.

Hence, this again is a very large subject and has its own sub-sites, in order of development.
