Who doesn’t like a little holiday? There’s something about travel that hits you right in the gut… that feeling of excitement in the planning of a new adventure; the anticipation of getting away from the daily grind of life; looking forward to not being at work and, instead, spending quality time with a loved one, family or friends; taking it easy; enjoying the delights of new surroundings from the culture to breathtaking scenery and historical sites, to exotic new cuisines and delicious wines.
Travel, whether it be to a small B&B at a quaint little village in the Cotswold countryside; a beach holiday in Turkey or taking the Star Ferry across magnificent Hong Kong Harbour, is all about the experience… all about the memories that you store in the bank – snapshots of happy, wonderful and exhilarating moments in time.
My Travel Monkey is all about inspiring you to pack a suitcase and get out into the big wide world. It’s also about discovering not only those far-flung destinations but those closer to home, exploring hidden gems that can be right on your doorstep.I enjoy learning about other people’s trips and holidays, and what they’ve experienced on their own travels – it only awakens the wanderlust in me. Where did they go on holiday; what city breaks have they’ve taken; how did they find their accommodation; what they did and saw – and I think you all will, too.
Which is why I have launched Holiday Snapshots – a regular segment that will feature one person’s trip down memory lane. I look forward to sharing them all with you – and if you would like to be featured on Holiday Snapshots yourself, please email me at [email protected] and I would love to include you.
