“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ” – Mark Twain

The impetus to start this blog came from the demise of a travel website on which I have been writing reviews for a few years. Much of what I wrote on that site will be converted into blog style and included here, as well as new content.

In addition to the obvious travel focus of this blog you will detect that I have a strong interest in history, trivia and the totally inconsequential and that I like to combine this into entries where appropriate.

Off course you can read entries in any order you like, if at all. That said, I have linked entries for each location/category into a loop in the order I think they are best read. For more details on these loops and to start reading one click HERE or on the ‘Travel Loops’ tab above.

I like the information I publish to be accurate so if you find any factual errors please let me know and I will adjust as appropriate. All thoughts, opinions and views expressed in this blog are my own.

The Oxford English Dictionary defines Rambling as:


– (of writing or speech) lengthy and confused or inconsequential

– (of a person) travelling from place to place; wandering


I will leave it for the reader to determine which I had in mind when I chose the title of this blog !

Hopefully you will find my entries informative and good reading. I look forward to your feedback.

  1. I see that you’re bombing along now. It’s good to see that you’ve got a new home for all those super tips you gave to VT. At least you’re in control of what happens to them now. Well done

    1. Thanks Malcolm but sadly no site it immune to disappearing. Thankfully in VT I had full copies of everything pretty much from day one so lost nothing. That said it is very laborious reformatting everything, especially the photos, for here.

  2. Thanks for letting me know about your blog, Albert. I see what you mean as we certainly visit the same/similar places, but our emphasis is different. I enjoyed your visit to North Korea. How was it that you came to go there?

    1. Yes, good that we can each have a different emphasis and still both enjoy where we visit. I have had an interest in N Korea for many years and decided it was time to go and have a look. An amazing experience which I highly recommend though perhaps not right now. I plan to return at some point. I am glad you enjoyed reading about it.
