As the year is coming to an end, I thought I’d take a quick look back at some of the most read things I’ve written this year.
It’s turned out to be a very travel focused few months…
One of the very few guest posts I’ve shared here, this article is the most viewed in the history of the blog. Written by a visiting author and football fan, it explores my hometown of Middlesbrough through an outsider’s eyes and was hugely popular on social media, even making it into the local paper.
A photo post from our visit to one of the most popular attractions in North Yorkshire, The Forbidden Corner, which is a stunning country garden full of mystery and surprises for all the family.
This post features a selection of night-time images taken on our trip to New York, this time last year.
Another post inspired by our New York adventures – this one debates which of the two tourist attractions offers the best view of the city.
A look back at our trip to the gorgeous Italian city, complete with plenty of photographs of charming buildings and quiet canals.
Another guest post about tourism and Middlesbrough, by a man who is fast becoming an advocate for the town.
One of the most useful writerly things I learned this year was that I could add my manuscript to my Kindle and read it like a real book. This article shows you how to do the same.
The third of this year’s guest posts of the charms of my hometown, by author Paul Breen.
A throwback post to my time in Iceland, featuring one of Reykjavik’s most striking buildings.
Need I say any more?
