Hidden gems and holiday treasures - Travel with Penelope & Parker

Hello!  I’m Anna, not Penelope, and welcome to my little corner of the internet.  I started this blog to keep note of our travels. I love writing it and being able to point others at my travel suggestions. I’m pretty proud of it too!

UK based travel blogger 🇬🇧
Luxury and unique with vitamin sea (and 🍾)
Director of quality & risk 👩🏻‍💻

Work keeps me busy and has allowed be to travel widely over the years. As well, my husband used to work in the world of business travel and that accustomed me to the finer things!   I now enjoy finding treats and secrets myself – balancing ‘by the book’ luxe with what luxury means to us!  My tagline ‘luxury and unique with vitamin sea’ is our niche, in travel, to relax and for the blog… I love finding the hidden gems rather than the obvious and impersonal!

Enjoy the ride and thank you for reading!




I also contribute to some fantastic luxury travel blogs: The Lux Traveller and A Luxury Travel Blog and Boutique Travel Blog

And find me on Facebooktwitter, instagram and pinterest!

  • Completely agree with you! Luxury IS what we make it out to be 🙂

  • Tim

    Big Thunderbirds fan in my childhood so love the reference. Happy travels and will follow along.

    • Thanks Tim – hope you enjoy!! Sadly no pink car here!!

  • I love that luxury is what you make of it! Sad to say, I never thought about luxury that way… I always imagined suited butlers, personal drivers and all day spa treatment! 😉 Love your blog – you have a new follower!

    • Thank you 🙂 definitely, we all have our creature comforts – even macdonalds being brought to my tent for breakfast felt like a luxury the last time we camped…

  • Thanks for the follow Penelope. Look forward to seeing your posts.

  • Happy travels guys! 🙂
