I am a journalist who works for a local weekly paper - the Knutsford Guardian in Cheshire. I love travelling, but some places are special to me for different reasons. I have fond memories of Sri Lanka because it was the first long-haul country I visited. I adore Paris because it was where I proposed to my partner (yes - on top of the Eiffel Tower). London is one of my favourite places because there is always something to do – and there are plenty of amazing sites that are free. I enjoyed Zakynthos because I got to swim with turtles. Meanwhile, Knutsford and all its attractions are obviously close to home.
