Kosovo has been on our mind lately. In the flatlands of the Kosovo Plain, temperatures plummeted this month to below minus 20 degrees. Enjoy our latest 'Letter from Europe'. #Kosovo #Ferizaj #travel
There's a touch of the wild west about Ferizaj. It has a frontier feel. When the English traveller Edith Durham travelled through Kosovo in 1908, she stopped just briefly in Ferizaj, remarking that this was a community create...

Looking at the spring 2016 train timetables, we notice that in April 2016 Eurostar is cutting out the intermediate stop at Lyon Part Dieu on some journeys between London and the south of France.

Ever heard of Schnackenburg? Find out more about this village on the Elbe in our latest "Letter from Europe". #borders #Germany  
The village of Schnackenburg is on the south side of the Elbe right on the erstwhile border between East and West Germany. It is a place which has lived by borders and died by borders. It is an interesting case of a community...

What do Katherine Mansfield, the Ile de Bendor and Bandol have in common? Find out in our latest 'Letter from Europe'. #France
It's hard to say no to pastis. Especially on the island of Bendor, off the south coast of France, where pastis is the preferred drink at almost any time of day. If you are really bold, you can get away with ordering a glass o...

Happy New Year! While you were sitting at home finishing the mince pies, we have been flying. It makes a change from trains and ferries and - let's face it - if you want to reach Lesotho from Berlin, one has little choice nowadays but to fly for at least part of the journey. Enjoy our latest "Letter from Europe"! #travel #flying
Flying is rarely a bundle of fun. Even leaving aside the generally horrid nature of airports with their essential (but inevitably unpleasant) security checks, modern aviation practice makes few concessions to the poetics of t...

The journey north from Palma is interesting in all weathers. The bus is the fast way to reach the north coast of Mallorca, but we opted for the train. It's slow and rattles along in an antique sort of way. The road cuts boldly though the island landscape; the railway is more gentle, negotiating its way through villages and around hills in a more tentative manner. It's not fast, but it's fun. Welcome to our last "Letter from Europe" in 2016. #travel #Mallorca #Spain
We wandered amid bamboo and eucalyptuses, past carob trees and citrus orchards, by pomegranates and myrtle. The gardens at Alfàbia on the island of Mallorca are one of many beautiful places we have visited as part of our work...

We visited Selborne last week, on one of those damp autumn afternoons when dusk comes all too soon. It is in a gorgeous location amid the malmstone hills of the western Weald. And it is a place associated with the 18th-century naturalist and writer Gilbert White. Enjoy our latest 'Letter from Europe'. #UnitedKingdom #writing #landscape #nature
For anyone with an interest in the natural world, Selborne is a place which touches the soul. Cast back 240 years, and the naturalist and writer Gilbert White was busy exploring the hollow vales and hanging woods which surrou...
