Snow then sunshine means the waterfalls in the Atlas are crashing and gushing water like crazy and are so fabulous to see in full flow. You can literally soak up the moment by having a drink right by the water with a gentle droplet spray enhancing the experience. Continue reading

You know you will be well looked after when your walking guide greets you all with sunhats and walking poles at the start of the hike. I had not used an ’alpenstock’ before but it was great on rocky paths...maybe I need to invest ! Continue reading

Mention fall foliage and people wax lyrical about British Columbia , Berkshire, Vermont and The Catskills but the words Atlas Mountains don’t fall from their lips. Big mistake I feel. Autumn is out in full force in these mountains just now, enhanced by early snow on the high peaks. Unmissable... Continue reading

It’s actually a fabulous small city or very big walkable town to visit in Spain....a perfect day trip by high speed train from Barcelona in fact. It has several claims to fame including being a major location for the filming of A Game of Thrones. Also there are eleven bridges... Continue reading

Last night we ate at Mamounia Palace in Tangier. It’s not related in any way, shape or form to the gracious and famous La Mamounia in Marrakech. And it’s not a palace either. Decor wise as you can see there is quite a lot going on. It was ideal for... Continue reading
