Sharing journeys

“Twenty years from now you’ll be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do… Explore. Dream. Discover.”

We couldn’t agree more with writer H. Jackson Brown Jr and have set up this website to share our family’s favourite travels, in the hope we can inspire yours.

We’ve concentrated on Spain for now; our home for many years. With some of Europe’s most stunning, and diverse, landscapes, we’re featuring both the mainland and its 11 holiday islands. At least one of us has been to the hotel, restaurant or beach we’re highlighting; sometimes all of us, dog included.

Foodies may enjoy the Delicious Destinations page: a collection of memorable meals, whether that’s a mindblowing menu, or just a table with a really special view. Here, though, we’ve gone beyond the borders and drooled over other spots in Europe.

For each travel entry, we’ve tried to include a web or social media link we hope will be helpful. No commercial interest to declare: all experiences were paid for and all photos our own ©, unless it says otherwise.

Why 5-Journeys? Our dream number of escapes each year, whether it’s long-haul… or just up the road.
