The first time I ever drove abroad – September 2016 – I went to Belgium and stayed for 1 night only in Ypres (known locally in Flemish as Ieper).

The Northern most island in Greece is my destination of choice for T. Thassos, where I first went 19 years ago, has no airport and but can be reached by ferry from either Kavala or Keramoti.

I first visited Rüdesheim on a school trip in 2006, and returned during my first road trip to Germany in 2017. (It is really only 3 years I’ve been routinely driving abroad!?)

It seems a lifetime ago but only 4 months ago I was in Greece in the middle of winter.



A-Z of My Favourite Holiday Destinations: Nicosia

Icon Written by Fred Hart on June 6, 2020 – 15:36

The Cypriot capital is today’s pick in my A-Z. Europe’s last divided capital. Nicosia technically shouldn’t be allowed to come under N, as in both Greek and Turkish it starts with an L. Λευκωσία (Lefkosia) in Greek and Lefkoşa in Turkish.

When I started full time work in December 2014, Munich was my first holiday – in February 2015 (yes, 3 months at work and I wanted to go away again…. the pattern hasn’t really stopped since!)
