"In many years of working as a travel writer — which I’ve often thought of as working the awe beat — I’ve come to understand that awe cannot be easily choreographed."

Fork lightning strobing across the empty deck of a cargo ship on Lake Victoria. An eagle hovering 20 feet above my shoulder in the Chilean tundra. These... transcendental moments... relied on serendipity...  Some occasions, by contrast, when I didn’t feel awe: gorilla tracking in Uganda, seeing the Mona Lisa at the Louvre amid a jostling crowd of people taking photos of i...

Trip to Switzerland– Zurich

At the end of October, I made a special five-day trip to Switzerland. The first two and half days I spent in Zurich, which was sponsored by the Zurich Tourism Office.  I had visited Zurich once before about 10 years ago just for an afternoon and honestly, I wasn’t very impressed.

After my trip last month, I was beyond impressed and now Zurich has made it into my favorite list of European cities. ...

Lunch plans for today's hachis parmentier (shepherd's pie) have been modified. Ken's making a lamb and barley soup instead. He also put away enough lamb to make a curry and ...

Easy rider? We’ll miss the roar, but electric motorbikes can’t kill our road romance

For bikers, combustive power is one of the thrills of a long-haul trip. But flat batteries and charging points will just become part of exciting new journeysA full tank of gas, a twist of the wrist, the roar of the exhaust as you speed towards the horizon … These are the visceral touchstones of the motorcycling experience, and all are a direct product of petrol-fuelled power, as is much of the biker’s lexicon: “open it up”, “give it some gas”, “go full throttle”.
