On the 27th September, LAN airlines flew us from London to Ecuador for the #HappyInEcuador trip with the South America travel experts, Metropolitan Touring. On the last three days of our eleven day journey we ticked off a destination that had been hovering at the top of our travel bucket for years – the Galapagos Islands….

In pictures: a weekend in Angers, France

On the 19th August we took a Railbookers weekend city break in Angers, France, the historical capital of Anjou and gateway to the Châteaux-lined Loire Valley. It’s a hugely likeable, laid back place with a slightly quirky outlook and heaps of beautiful architecture to drool over. After a hassle-free train journey, our days were spent wandering around the cobbled medieval streets exploring important heritage sites….

Inside the Ferrari Driver Academy: mind games #insideFDA

As I pulled out of the garage and accelerated along the Silverstone pit lane, I began to regret eating so much pasta for lunch. I was strapped into a Formula 1 car, and putting my foot down, I could feel the vibrations through the tyres. Turning into the first corner, my nerves gave way to a rush of excitement…

In pictures: exploring West Sweden

On the 5th August we flew to West Sweden, a pristinely beautiful place that seems to be having a ‘moment.’ With long summer days, over 8,000 islands to explore (stretching from Gothenburg all the way to the Norwegian border) and a plentiful supply of fresh sea air, Scandinavians have always loved holidaying here…

Inside the Ferrari Driver Academy: training to win

It was 10am on a Tuesday, and a man I’d only just met had given me his shorts. Luckily, the man in question was the aptly named Andrea Ferrari, and the shorts meant I didn’t have to spend the morning work out in my jeans. I was still recovering from the shock of finding myself in a gym when I was handed a red Ferrari Driver Academy t shirt, and pulling it on, I suddenly felt rather privileged…

In pictures: summer at Hampton Court Palace gardens

We feel very lucky to live down the road from one of the most impressive Royal Palaces in England. Although it hasn’t inhabited by the British Royal Family since the 18th century, it was once Henry VIII’s favourite royal hangout and his intended bride Anne Boleyn apparently spent the equivalent of around 18 million pounds turning the residence into the palace of their dreams….

Inside the Ferrari Driver Academy: an afternoon in the slow lane

Once-in-a-lifetime opportunities don’t come along all that often (funnily enough), and having been offered the chance to fly to Italy and go behind the scenes at Ferrari, this was one that couldn’t be turned down…

Phantom of the Opera – VIP backstage tour, dinner and show

Perhaps it’s showing my age a little but I remember a time when Andrew Lloyd Webber’s famous musical seemed to rule the eighties. All power ballads, big hair and high drama, everyone knew at least one of the show’s tunes and tales of obsessive multiple viewings were rife (apparently even Princess Diana was a super-fan had seen it many times from the comfort of the Royal Box)….
