provence-accommodationOn my travels around the UK and Europe I've been privileged to stay in some fantastic accommodation.  Depending on who I'm travelling with, and for how long I'm staying in each location, my accommodation options can range from self-catering apartments and houses to hotels and B&Bs.  I'm also a big fan of holiday parks in Europe, particularly for families or couples travelling around by car.  In the articles below I share my accommodation recommendations from various European countries.

visiting-europes-beautiful-gardensAs a gardener and garden lover, I love to visit the magnificent gardens of the UK and Europe whilst on my travels.  I've been lucky enough to visit some famous and not-so-famous gardens over the years and admire the work of the talented and dedicated designers and gardeners who tend lovingly to these living works of art.  Despite sometimes being crowded due to their popularity, each of the gardens I've visited has had a calming effect on me and has left me aspiring to create a little of this magic in my own garden.
