City Tripping #36

Another week, another country. Last Tuesday we were in Italy with a large group of friends and for this week’s City Tripping I am in France! It’s just the four of us again though. The group trip was brill (and seemed to go without a hitch despite there being 36 of us) but it is good […] Read more…

City Tripping #31

My home city of London was alive with activity this weekend for the Queen’s 90th birthday. Across the country people celebrated with street parties – including us. We wandered down to our local party (after the rain had stopped) and we enjoyed the sense of community such events evoke. It was an important show of how inclusive […] Read more…
