A real travel enthusiast, I have lived abroad in Siena (Italy) and New York, and travelled in Asia, Africa and North America. I have well and truly got 'the bug', but since starting work have had to content myself with traditional two week holidays! I am a language enthusiast (I have pigeon German, French and Spanish, my Italian is thankfully a little more respectable) so I really enjoy going to a country where I might have a hope of learning some of the basics. Food is also a really important aspect of my holidays, so the destinations I have most enjoyed have always had fabulous food - particularly Mexico, Thailand, Italy, and New York City. As you will see from my guides...food, and cafe culture, features highly! I hope readers enjoy my guides... feedback gratefully received. Happy travels!
