Paralia Sergoylas, Greece – a photoblog

At last I had found one of those iconic white stone Greek churches set amongst olive trees and a bright cobalt sky as a backdrop. Staying near Skaloma on the Gulf of Corinth I was gradually exploring the nearby fishing villages and  Paralia Sergoylas was one of my favourites …… well it had to be after finding that church! […]

The Acropolis Museum

‘Can’t believe it’s only ten euros’ said the American behind me in the short queue and yes at just ten euros good value for money for entrance into the Acropolis Museum and an air-conditioned break from the 32C Athen’s heat.

Her Mother’s Secret by Rosanna Ley

The story brings an estranged mother and daughter back together. It’s been fifteen years and Colette returns to […]

Old Town Square, Prague

Prague‘s Old Town Square is the hub of the city surrounded by many buildings which are  all worth a closer look. Pastel colours mingle well with the terracotta roofs probably best seen on the observation area from the town hall. Street performers with cracking whips, large pandas and silver statues all seem to blend well with the […]

Prague Transport

Arriving on a late evening EasyJet  flight the arrival at Prague airport was efficient and seamless. Being a popular weekend or midweek destination from the UK means that many travellers choose to take just carry on luggage ….therefore very few suitcases were making their way round the carousel which meant that baggage reclaim was quick.
