My Wanderings further afield have primarily been in Europe, but not exclusively so, and, like many others, I have a lot of photographic material in the form of prints and transparencies which took years to get and would take an eternity to digitalise.
Consequently, most of my posts will be of places I have visited in recent times, which, if nothing else means that they should be relatively up to date at least.
I’ve always had a fascination for the continent of Europe and I feel fortunate that it doesn’t take me long to fly to some fantastic places without spending a lot of time or money to get to them.
Who could ever tire of people watching from a Parisian café, taking a stroll along a Mediterranean promenade, or even getting lost in the back streets of Naples?
From the bright lights of a large city to large expanses of nothingness, I like them all, but I’m not a great fan of hordes of tourists descending on one particular place all at the same time. In fact some of my best memories are from places that may not immediately seem a worthwhile destination to visit in the first place.
I also like to think of myself as a responsible traveller, so that my footprints don’t have a negative impact on the environment and the people who live and work there. With a bit of luck my visit could have helped in some small way, and if it did, that would make me feel good too.
