Samos, GreeceWell, the sun's shining, the walking is fabulous and the hotels are wonderful. What more could I wish for? I'm here on the beautiful island of Samos in the Aegean checking our walking notes and saying hello to our hoteliers, as I dine on some wonderful traditional Greek cuisine each evening after a rewarding day's walk. You can follow my exploits in far more detail by logging on to Facebook and/or Twitter, both of which I am keeping regularly updated. Read the full post

Anaga TenerifeToday has been an admin / research / fact-finding day (it's not all about checking / writing walking notes) - an important job when visiting our destinations abroad and a good opportunity to get to know our hoteliers. On this occasion I'd been asked, amongst other things, to view different types of rooms at the Hotel Victoria in La Orotava; to check out where alternative restaurants, within easy walking distance of the hotel, are located; and then re-check the driving notes for guests...
