I’d heard rumours about Totnes during our last visit to Dartmoor. Sat inside the warm ceramics studio belonging to Penny Simpson – enveloped by the wilds of Dartmoor’s rolling hills – we’d asked for suggestions for places to visit during...

Visiting Prague at Christmas has been a dream of mine since I read the book: Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Set amongst the city’s wintery streets, this magical story follows the tale of Karou, an art student who lives between Prague’s historic lanes and a monster’s workshop (filled, incidentally, with teeth and bones). The book, filled with lyrical descriptions of Prague and its gothic spires, not only had me captivated – but determined to visit the city during the...

During our visit to Sicily, I was keen to plan a day trip from Taormina to Syracuse. Having stumbled across images of this magnificent ancient city in my trusty Lonely Planet guide, I’d immediately added it to our Sicily bucket list. A city that...

This guide on the best things to do in Rügen, Germany, has come about thanks to a sponsored trip we took to the island with the support of Tourism Germany. It’s a warm Thursday evening on the Baltic island of Rügen and a concert is taking place. In the small village of Groß Zicker, residents have gathered to watch a performance in their local church; their wooden chairs crowded together. Stood at the altar is an accordionist, his melancholy music dancing out of the...
