Hi there, I’m Tessa. Writer, Mum, Nanny and I love visiting places. Castles, gardens, museums anywhere where you exit via the gift shop. I love being in towns, cities and I’m equally happy by the beach or in the middle of nowhere. As long as I have a book, a notepad and my camera I will day trip or just aimlessly wander. I don’t fly (since 2005, when I realised I had a huge fear of being in the air. It was just a shame that the fear manifested itself whilst on holiday in Kenya. Thank goodness for Valium or I would have been catching the train home!). But I do travel and love learning about new places. So join me in this blog, which I hope will pave the way to new places for me and for you.
