An Italian – style road trip in South England that is.
Last week I sunk my teeth into a homemade calzone, savoured the rich texture of a real gelato and washed it all down with a delicate espresso. I finished the day with my toes in the ocean and a vest-top suntan.
There is no place like home…when it’s sunny and you know the right places to go. You’re about to find out about how I went about an Italian-themed road trip – from London to Dover.

Climbing Kilimanjaro – Diary Guide and Tips
I soon realised second day was meant to be shorter, just the four hours trekking, but as it turns out short doesn’t equal easier. Figure that! Now we were definitely climbing a mountain.
As we started we thought we might be lucky enough and not get torrential rain. We had good chances as well as the morning started of misty with no rain. But that didn’t last long. Bugger!
I love travelling, probably as much as the next person does, but unlike most other people, I think I enjoy the journey more than the actual destination. More than finally settling down in my hammock by the beach, I enjoy the long trip it takes me to get to where I want to go – I love being on the road, in the air, or out at sea.
I’ll be honest – I’ve never really thought there’s much to do in Birmingham.
Yes, it’s got one of the UK’s biggest shopping centres, the Bullring, but other than that, there’s not much there right?
A few weeks ago I spent the day in Birmingham with one of my uni friends and our original plan was to go to Cadbury World in Bourneville – just 12 minutes on the train from Birmingham New Street.
