The New Forest is a gorgeous part of the world less than two hours drive from London with it's fair share of things to do in and around the National Park; loads of wildlife, National Trust properties, Beaulieu Motor Museum, vineyards, picturesque villages and towns or just walking in the fresh air and admiring the wild ponies! It's also well placed for Bournemouth and its beaches too.

It is 9pm and the holiday house that we are staying in rural France has retired for the day; the garden cleared of toys, bikes, and all signs of long lazy lunching (which always merges in to dinnering) has been washed-up and put away, until the next day.

One of the things I expect from the people who run the country I live in is to enforce the laws of the country. Yet time and time again disabled people are faced with businesses that just do not make themselves accessible to disabled customers, and the excuse is nearly always expense.

By many accounts, Switzerland is the most expensive country in the world. It's also one of the most beautiful and offers superb skiing. It would be a shame to dismiss it entirely on grounds of cost.

The Relationship Between Music and Travel

I find music and travel both utterly addictive. After one short trip away, I return with post-travel blues, desperate to go on another one. The same with music - I'm incapable of listening to one song, then turning off.

It's the same story for holidays. I don't know about you but I've wasted my last few holidays by generally taking the lazy option - not going for that hike, not getting a bike, vegetating in front of a screen - but I hope next time will be different.

Yes, having the perfect venue/flowers/dress/cake/invites/guest list is super important, but when it's all over - and believe me, it goes very quickly - you want the best honeymoon possible to look forward to.

I thought I'd secured a monoski experience for 90 minutes, however my spontaneity meant getting the right equipment was not possible. However I'm going with the Catalan Tourist Board in December. All good...

The Amalfi Coast on an Italian Shoestring

Situated almost exactly where the shoelaces would be on the boot of Italy, which is how I described its location to almost everyone who asked and received instant recognition, the Amalfi Coast is made up of several towns spanning an unfathomably picturesque coastline, easily one of the most beautiful in the world, as a quick Google will confirm.

Travelling isn't cheap and for some people, a gap year purely for leisure is out of the question. But it's not all lost. Many people travel and work at the same time and sometimes this is the better option.

I felt a chill just from looking out of the plane window of as I travelled to Madrid. January is officially low season across Spain. A country that I have always thought of as being warm and drenched in sunshine, was looking more like the Scottish highlands!

The capital of Malaysia is a colourful city - the central emblem of the country's diversity and juxtapositions. It's impossible to get bored in Kuala Lumpur with its gargantuan range of things to do, but if it's your first time, start off by visiting the Petronas Towers

Stressed mums shouting at their husband and children. Common rants and nags include: "Geoff, I gave you the passports!" As soon as boarding is announced, they rush to be first in the queue, as if the plane will leave without them otherwise.

'One's destination is never a place but a new way of seeing things'. It's not often I find inspiration in an in-flight magazine but the words of Henry Miller, one of my favourite authors, jump out at me.

Three Clues to Unlock the Wonder of Christmas

Deborah Quibell | Posted 14.02.2015 | UK Lifestyle

I confess. I am one of those Christmas-enthusiasts. There is something about sparkling lights and the smell of pine (ok, and maybe eggnog) that restores marvel to my soul. While I deeply honor that this is a tradition tied to the birth of Jesus Christ, I also honor the magic that the holiday season brings in the imagination of our hearts.

It's a Dog's Life

This summer, we decided to do a road trip around the UK. Jake hopped in the back of the car, all of us prepared to rough it in a tent; we had no idea that so many hotels were dog friendly - our "working" dog ended up living the high life at some of the UK's finest hotels! It got me thinking: given the choice, where would dogs go on holiday?

Forget the Grinch stealing Christmas. This year, it is a cute little penguin called Monty that not only steals the show, but also the hearts and minds of the UK populace (and softies everywhere). British department store John Lewis has done it again, with a £1 million commercial (US$ 1.5m) that tells the story of a boy and his penguin pal, on the search for a flippered mate.

Yet despite this, hotels still say it is not a priority, according to our study. 76 per cent of venues are convinced that customers care far more about quality of service and facilities than WiFi, and as many as 43 per cent believe customers think poor or non-existent wireless access is a price worth paying for the overall experience on offer.

Travelling from state to state can often feel like entering a whole new country. It's food, the people, architecture, the weather, literally everything may seem completely world's away from wherever you might have just been. Though you may have just ventured mere miles in reality.
