I’M not by any stretch of the imagination an intrepid traveller. Those who know me well are all too accustomed to how I get tetchy on motorways, don’t like buses and dislike trams even more. And I’ve been known to viciously hyperventilate on planes. So trekking round the Australian outback or abseiling down Canadian waterfalls […]

Cobbled Church Street leading up t0 the 199 steps

EVERY October half term when I was a child my parents would take my sister and I to Whitby, home of Dracula, the best fish and chips in the world and warrens of delightful little winding streets and hidden passageways. It is a place I think of fondly because it was and still is so […]

Mint, mango and onion chutneys

NOTTINGHAM seems to have far more Indian restaurants than other types of restaurants.
