I have always loved travelling, seeing new places, meeting new people.
When I was in my late teens, I organised a Youth Hosteling trip in North Wales, then a year or two later went InterRailing with a friend…and that had me hooked!
Since then, I have driven thousands of miles in Europe, also had some rail trips too. But I have only stepped out of Europe twice, once was to see Cuba, driving across the island, and once was on a Cruise which took in a number of South American countries and the Panama Canal (all too briefly), and touched on Havana in Cuba again.
I am very pleased to have had the opportunity to see so many places and cultures, it really has nourished my soul. And now my health is less good, I am determined to find ways of continuing to see places albeit less adventurously!
So what to pick for this challenge? I was reminiscing earlier in the day about the MSA EuroClassic that we used to participate in, and once the tour had finished, we would have several hundred to a thousand miles or so to drive back home, so I used to create my own Scenic Tours, planning the route, places to see, booking the hotels….and we had some very memorable trips.

Wonderful old abbeys:
Marvellous streets with old timbered buildings
Dawn light and an old castle at one of my favourite places
