Rest and relaxation in Goa and Mumbai via @aeparker81 #EscapetoGoa

It would have been so easy to have spent all our time in India immersed in the culture of Rajasthan.  We almost did.  But I really wanted beach and pool time and when I asked our agent if we could fit this in the answer was a resounding yes. We…

Our two days in Jaipur, our favourite place in India (so far) via @aeparker81 #IncredibleIndia #Jaipur @BanyanTours

We loved our time in Jaipur. It was the full package. Clean and ordered (relatively speaking), pretty, blue skies (no fog), we bumped into friends (yes – really), history and views, as well as amazing food and incredible hotels. Jaipur very much got the…

December fun and frolics via @aeparker81

December, what a marvellous month.  Our big discovery was the benefit of storing up annual leave until the last month of the year.  Then trying to use it up! I did 5 days of work, had a 12 day trip to India and Christmas off work too.  Now there are…
December was a marvellous month. 5 days of work, 3 christmas parties at work, India, Christmas, family and friends time.

The annual bucket list update via @aeparker81 #travellinkup #travelbucketlist

Whether or not we like them, we all have a bucketlist or two – for life and in this case for travel.  Mine is subject to an annual update as horizons widen or tastes change. I’ve just looked back at my 2014 and 2015 lists and it’s fantastic to see how the…

My top 10 travel highlights of 2016 via @aeparker81

What a year 2016 has been globally.  My top 10 highlights may well sound frivolous and privileged in a year when the world has been full of sadness, unrest and nasty surprises.  But they made us smile, laugh and relax after some challenging years. Its…

November fun and frolics via @aeparker81

A bit of a strange month – I was manically busy right through the month but I didn’t seem to actually achieve a great deal! Aside from crazy hours, there was one other similarity between October and November… I went to kareoke in both months having never…
November - manically busy yet with no real achievements! A few trips, some social shenanigans and some good days on the water too!

10 comedy travel moments 2016 via @aeparker81

Last year I enjoyed writing about the comedy and less than perfect travel moments of the year.  There’s always a few and they tend to be carefully curated out of the blog, or mentioned in passing.  This year I’ve already had my first comedy travel moment…
Those comedy or awkward moments that are carefully curated from tales of luxury and travel memories. I thought I'd share the best ten from 2016 adventures

One day in Agra via @aeparker81 #IncredibleIndia #Agra

Agra was our second base and was actually somewhere I wasn’t initially planning to visit.  I couldn’t fathom how one building could justify a 3 hour drive.  But the drive was of course worthwhile. Agra wasn’t our favourite place.  Mainly due to us…
Our second stop was Agra, not our favourite place but worth a 3 hour drive from Delhi - we were certainly spellbound by the Taj Mahal and baby-Taj!

One day in Delhi via @aeparker81 #IncredibleIndia #BanyanTours

Delhi is where our Indian adventure began.  Colleagues of mine are always here and told me it was the right city to quickly immerse ourselves in the sights, smells and sounds of India. We had just over 24 hours in the city.  Our guide Punam (an expert,…
We began our Indian adventure with full immersion into Delhi. A feast for the senses and a fascinating tour in the hazy sunshine.

Planning our 2017 adventures with a letter to Santa - Travel with Penelope and Parker via @aeparker81

We have no travel or adventures planned yet for 2017, none.  Come December in a normal year, we’d have plenty mapped out. Not this year.  Due to work commitments we’re taking our big trip of the year in December. So we’ve had something to look forward to…

Mr P did some vital yachting holiday research for us in October… Too kind!  I was manic with work and made a passing comment suggesting he go away with his best buddy somewhere nice and leave me in peace.  I didn’t ever expect the offer to be taken up.…
A guest post from Mr P all in the aid of 'research' for our future yachting adventures! A boys week of yachting in the Canary Island sunshine and breeze!
