Being a passionate traveller and having travelled to fifty nine countries worldwide we are consistently asked
What’s your favourite?
This is the worst question to ask a true traveller, as deciding is near on impossible. Each country holds something special, unique Wandering Memories influenced by the personal experience.
My standard response is… ‘I can’t decide that, it’s like asking a film critic what their favorite movie is or a music fan whose their favourite band?’
Well for the first time I will document down a number of our favourite Wandering Memories.… More What’s your favourite?
Next in our blogging series of secret New York, comes the wonderfully quiet Roosevelt Island. In seven previous visits to Manhattan we had not once even contemplated visiting the narrow strip of land in the middle of the East river.
I doubt many tourists give the island a second thought, when consumed with the decadence that New York promises. The bright lights and reputation are just too much for the average tourist.… More Secret New York – Roosevelt Island
Central Park is one of the most iconic landmarks in New York, if not the world. The 800+ acre park welcomes nearly forty million visitors a year and is renowned as a must see location on any New York City visit. The vastness of the park makes it a huge attraction to explore, and take it from us a single visit is never enough time. The park itself is home to a Zoo, Pond, Skating Rink, Theatre, Reservoir and some of the most incredible views of the cityscape.… More Secret New York – The Ramble Cave

One of my favourite cities in Africa is South Africa’s crowning jewel of Cape Town. This dramatic city boasts a superb seaside location, great climate, the iconic Table Mountain, proximity to some of the country’s best natural attractions and a turbulent yet fascinating history. Located in the South West…
As previously blogged we completely fell in love with Croatia and the island of Brac. Setting up a base in Supetar, we hired a car to enable us to visit the entire island. Access to this small town is via a road that descends from the high centre to the coastline, it’s a beautiful drive well worth the effort.… More Bol – Croatia
Living in the UK gives us very easy direct access to a number of historic and wondrous countries. The usual European tourist hotpots such as France, Spain, Italy and Greece, see an influx of British every year. Interestingly though out of the potential of fifty countries, there is a handful that we simply didn’t ever expect to visit.
One such example is the country of Bosnia Herzegovina, a member of the former country of Yugoslavia. Plagued with civil unrest and war throughout our childhood, the mere name of its capital Sarajevo brings up horrific memories of a war fort not long concluded.… More A True Suprise – Mostar

Wandering memories do not always have to be from an exotic country, half the world away, but can happen any time in any location. Numerous of mine are all centred on a location, a couple hours from where I now live, the Lake District. As a child my parents used…
Whilst driving to Europe a few months back, we had planned on visiting the Belgian city of Brussels. However as previously blogged it was literally days after the monstrous attacks that rocked us all, therefore we had to adjust our route. This meant spending our final day’s holiday across the border in France.… More Standing in the footsteps of Heroes
In the midst of the political upheaval currently dominating the media and sweeping over the UK, I wanted to try to remind the world that the UK is still a wondrous country full of culture, beauty and history.
Brexit is now a reality. That is a fact, and the ‘remain’ uk voters along with the whole world will hopefully accept it in the near future. Although the UK is swimming in unchartered waters don’t let this put you off this beautiful collection of countries… More The UK is still…
We live in a beautiful part of the English countryside just outside of London, which many overlook when on a trip to the iconic capital of England. We have natural forests, lakes, moors, rolling hills and many historic stately homes, all within fifteen minutes drive from our family home. It’s astonishing. … More Doorstep of Nature – Woburn
