You’ve come to the right page if, like us, you believe the world is your oyster. 

There are few things more uplifting in life, than researching and planning a trip. Having a holiday or break to look forward to really lifts the spirits….but where to go?

Our travel writers know the pleasures and the pitfalls in choosing the right destination and the best type of accommodation for discerning, mature travellers. From the sunny Mediterranean islands, exotic Morocco, beautiful Brittany, the golden Balearics or the impossible choice between Sicily, Corsica or Sardinia, our writers have a story to tell about all of them. Our BackPacking Granny has even been on an island-hopping holiday in Greece!

For those wishing to venture further afield, we’ve explored in Sri Lanka, taken an escorted tour of New Zealand, had fun in Brazil and enjoyed temples and sunsets in India.

Staycationing has become a buzz word during the pandemic, allowing more of us to discover the most beautiful holiday locations right on our doorstep. Delight in wind-whipped autumnal coastal walks in Dorset, must-see spots in the Cotswolds, weekend castle breaks with Warner Leisure in Warwickshire and early summer getaway ideas without the hassle of passports and flights. What’s more, these soul-warming breaks also support out local tourism industry who fought so hard last year and could really do with our help. A staycation sounds tempting doesn’t it?
