Holidays

Very personal travel diaries of our various family holidays around the world, either as a complete family or in smaller groups.
Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all of one’s lifetime.

Meribel

Skiing in Meribel. Well, I skied. Kas, Ami, Dennis and Linda did a lot of swimming, sitting in cafes and meeting me at the tops of mountains.

A week on the beautiful west coast of France. It was so hot, it was more like sun-snogged than sun-kissed.

Les Arcs

Skiing in Les Arcs, and overlooked by the totally mad “Speed Skiing” course.

Northumberland

Northumberland

A week in Northumberland enjoying one of Britains best, and least known, bits of coastline.

Wet in Whistler
