Traveling is one of my passions. It’s something I really enjoy and I treasure the memories of my experiences. I’ve been to quite a few different places both in the UK and further afield. Highlights in my travel adventures include:
Americas: island hopping in the Caribbean and a couple of trips to the eastern seaboard of the US.
Asia: A magical trip to Koh Samui and a visit to Doha in Qatar.
Africa: So far only a trip to Tunisia, but keen to see more.
Europe: A huge list here from Barcelona (twice), Lisbon, Brittany, Tours, Bonn (twice so far), Zell Am See, Stuttgart, Lake Constance, Sorrento (twice), Venice (twice), Prague, Berlin, Switzerland (for 4 months so living and working there) and many many more. Biggest gaps include Scandinavia and a lot of Eastern Europe.
Elsewhere: A honeymoon in Mauritius
In the UK I’m proud to say I’ve been to every single English county for at least a day trip. I’ve probably travelled Wales more extensively and in depth than England – us West Midlanders are often to be seen hopping over the border for a short break. Scotland I’ve only really dabbled with, but the list includes Kippford, Edinburgh (multiple times), Perthshire (a real favourite), Aberdeen and Lanark. I really must see more of Ireland – I’ve been to Dublin many times, but never ventured much further.
Islands have a particular appeal for me and I’m working my way round the coast of Britain when time, funds and other travel priorities permit. The Isles of Scilly are my favourite so far and I’d love to go back as I only made it to about half of the archipelago last time.
My travel bucket list is very long, but future priorities include Hamburg, Dundee, the Faroe Islands and Genoa.
I’m a long standing blogger and I really enjoy writing. More and more though I’ve been wanted to write more about travel and that’s where Toothbrush Packed comes in. I’ll be writing about travel in all sorts of guises: solo travel, travel with friends and of course family travel. So who will be travelling? Me, of course. Often my son (to be known as H) who was born in 2007.
