Travel Writing

Here are some examples of articles I’ve had published in the travel sections of The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph and The National, the English-language newspaper based in the Middle East.

    I totally agree about lingering in a place to be like a local rather than rushing around to tick off the ‘attractions’. This is particularly pertinent in Paris, where just being there is enough. It was about our tenth visit before we went up Eiffel Tower and twentieth before we visited the Louvre – we could have done without both to be honest. That is what is also so great about air bnb. You can be a local, shop at the markets, stick to your neighbourhood cafes and bars etc. I read your Marais article. I love that area. But then again I love Quartier Latin, Montmartre, Ile St Louis, the parks, canal St Martin…………you really cannot go wrong. Do you have any ‘hidden’ Paris tips?

      I absolutely agree about the joys of feeling like a local in Paris but then I was lucky enough to live there for a year. I think it’s hard for people to make the decision to ignore those sights they’ve read so much about on their first couple of visits – although I’d definitely agree that it’s worth it. I should write that guide to the hidden delights of Paris! Thanks for your lovely comment, Wilbur.
