Welcome and thanks for stopping by.

Perhaps you have read a couple of posts and have enjoyed them. We hope so. Our aim is to share with others a small but carefully chosen selection of travel destinations and things to do. Over the years we have had the privilege of visiting some incredible places and continue to look for more. The eternal dilemma is: where to go and what to see? Yet in our digital era it is becoming increasingly difficult to sift through all the information available to find the gem that will delight and excite. Increasingly it is the travel blogger community who provide the inspiration and guide us to a hidden gem that would never have been found if we’d relied on the more traditional travel channels. Which brings us to this site, the intention is to guide those who, like us, seek experiences and look for something exceptional and a little off-beat. It might be an amazing travel destination in some far flung corner of the world, but equally it could be somewhere well-know yet equally unmissable for a unique feature and a little known gem. This may be something ordinary, something every day that is done with such love and detail that it becomes extraordinary. The key is we don’t judge and pride ourselves on our impartiality, knowing from experience that even the most unlikely looking place can hold a secret.

When at home we’re out and about in London, so there is a whole section dedicated to the capital. Our other passions are the arts and entertainment, particularly the theatre and you will find a collection of the latest must-see exhibitions and theatre productions. Whilst not foodies we do seem to spend an extraordinary amount of time eating out and are occasionally inspired to write about a particularly fantastic dining experience. These will suite the cautious carnivore or vegetable-centric diner, as the places we love tend to be led by a chef who has a passion for vegetables, as well as meat and fish, and who has the licence to be creative.

The things reviewed will not suit everyone but if like us you are constantly scouring the world for exceptional places and beautiful things to see then this site may well be useful and we hope inspirational.
