If you were to read the essay of our journey to North Island New Zealand, you would know that it is as far from our little red dot as it would be to the UK. This piece of geographical fact was lost on us when we first made this journey. First, it is good to […]
South Harris, Outer Hebrides. Everyone advised us to visit Lyskentyre, so off we went. Dina was speeding first in her white Jaguar and Siri and Selma were slowly following in their VW camper van. Would Dina not have stopped frequently for taking pictures, she would have darted off out of sight of our dear Bookfayries. […]

It is often overlooked by travellers who concentrate on big-name attractions like Melbourne, Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef on the east coast of Australia. But for people who do decide […]
The biggest nickel that I have ever seen. It is one of only a few landmarks in Sudbury, Ontario, the city that I grew up in. Most of my firsts happened in Sudbury. First friends.
