By mid-June it had well and truly hotted up in the Balkans. I was travelling at a rate of knots; Bosnia, Serbia and Bulgaria in successive days is just one example of how many kilometres I was clocking up. My four nights in Greece every fortnight was sort of like a mini-holiday; sure I was […]

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been back to work in March. I’ve already posted a bit on the craziness of Las Fallas in Valencia, and yesterday I got back from guiding an Easter tour of Paris. I’m exhausted already and the proper summer season is still a month away. To make up for my […]
