An Indian Odyssey – Sacred Cities
In autumn 2014 I spent a month in northern India on an itinerary that took me via trains, planes and automobiles from Delhi to McLeod Ganj, Rishikesh, Varanasi, Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Haripur, Jawai, northern Goa and Mumbai.

I recently visited the Middle East for the first time

On a recent visit to Porto, I hopped over the Douro to the neighbouring city of Vila Nova de Gaia whose smart riverfront is defined by port money.
A Somerset sojourn
Last month I spent a glorious weekend in sodden Somerset, which at time time was still knee-deep in flood-water in some places.
