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, Italy and France for now; Scotland will also feature, followed by some long-haul suggestions. 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’, where a journey might be inspired by the quest for a mindblowing menu, or just a table with a really special view.

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 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.
