Quick location update.

Today I'm in Nepal, tomorrow will take me to Peru and then I'm off to Morocco.

I'd love it if you would join me.

In fact how would you like it if you could travel to 365 awe-inspiring locations for less than the price of an inflight meal?

Each day in our home we turn another page of 'The Earth From The Air' by Yann Arthus-Bertrand.
I'm sure that you've seen the images before and perhaps like me you are lucky enough to travel to a different location via his stunning images and the interesting facts that accompany each one.
But it's what we do next that really warms my heart.

Captain Valentine's youngest is eight and is simply fascinated by geography.
After we find out our new destination from 'Y A-B', we go to another amazing tome 'The Travel Book' by Lonely Planet and again are met not only by stunning images but facts that are informative and fun.

Each opening tells you:
General Information About the Location
The Best Time to Visit
Essential Experiences
What to Read, Listen To, Watch, Eat & Drink
Surprises To Be Found
and my absolute favourite..In A Word - a commonly used word, phrase or colloquialism to put you in sync with the locals.

And so to end I share a little bit of my recent travels....
