Thanks for being part of and wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Here are my favourites from 2018:

The UK’s Royal Mint issued 26 new 10p coins, each features a design that is intended to reflect things that are quintessentially British.

Giudecca Island is only a ten minute boat ride from the main sights of Venice. The island is attractive, peaceful and mostly residential.

There are a number of levada walks that you can take from Camacha in Madeira. The Levada dos Tornos is interesting as there is a 100m tunnel halfway through.

Flamenco at La Madriguera de Mai Bar/Restaurant, Seville, Spain.

El Caminito del Rey (The King’s Little Pathway) is a walkway, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Ardales in the province of Málaga, Spain.

My partner, Martina Krupičková, was chosen to appear in Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year Season 4 Episode 6 first screened 8pm 20th November 2018. The location was Inveraray Castle and my review of the Sky Arts event is here.

Our Templehof Airport, Berlin visit was part of our German Road trip. What should have been a tour turned out to more fun as we wandered around this huge deserted place alone.

Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machines by Bruce Coulombe.

And as 2018 comes to a close, I still don’t know if Javier Cordero Gilsanz, Director of Barceló Bávaro Palace Deluxe Hotel, Dominican Republic is just a fake name or that he’s locked in the cellar beneath the Club Premium office – Javier, if you’re real, I hope they at least let you out to watch the New Year fireworks and have a glass of Champagne!
