Flashback Friday 41: Solent Sailing

This is the final flashback friday –  Penelope and Parker after 2 years (well actually it is 2 years and 5 days since I registered on WordPress, a little longer since I started on A Luxury Travel Blog) is now a complete record of my adventures – either as a flashback…

Flashback Friday 40 – AP:DC – Washington, my favourite city

I consider myself very lucky to have travelled to Washington 3 times with work, and even luckier to have friends that live nearby (thanks Emily for having me to stay) and family that have been fabulous tour-guides.  In my visits I have decided that Washington DC is my favourite city…

Flashback Friday Travel 39 – Jamaica

April in Jamaica was a splendid idea, I remember our trip very fondly indeed.  I must confess, I was nervous about going to Jamaica – it has a little more ‘edge’ to it than other bits of the Caribbean and Mr P had been there before when gang violence hit Kingston…

Flashback Friday Travel 38 – Oman

Oh – man, or ooo – man – whichever way you say it, Oman is an incredible place to visit – a stunning coastline, beautiful mountains and dunes and some incredible hotels.  We rounded off a busy year of travel in 2012 with a week in the Sultanate of Oman.…

Flashback Friday Travel 35 – London 2012

The summer of 2012 is one that I look back on incredibly fondly.  Never has it been so much fun to be in the UK and even fun to be in London for work.  The country and the city had this buzz to it that I wish it had all…

Flashback Friday Travel 34 – Anglesey adventures

Continuing through 2012 and we had many a trip to the stunning island of Anglesey – just about as far north west as you can get in Wales, attached to the mainland by 2 bridges.  We are lucky to have great friends that live there and so get to visit often…

Flashback Friday Travel 33 – Singapore

2012 was one of those years – everything was amazing, everything seemed to be pretty darn perfect.  Not just the holidays – and there were a few – but the whole country was smiling – first for the Queen’s Jubilee and then for Olympics and Paralympics, and the sun shone too.…
