Going Underground

For lovers of industrial archaeology there are several places in the UK where you can actually go underground and learn about the history of mining. Having had many years to mellow, the scenery on the surface is pretty wonderful too.

Union Island

We were distressed to learn of the devastation caused on Union Island by Hurricane Beryl. We would urge anyone who has enjoyed a holiday in the Caribbean to make a donation here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-the-union-island-population-recover-from-the-hurricane.

Mountains To Take Your Breath Away

Yes, it's a deliberate pun. Getting to the top of any of these Spanish mountains will certainly leave you gasping, but just to view them from nearby will also take your breath away.
