Posted on January 19th, by Peter Parkorr in Roaming Resources. No Comments
So 2015 is upon us. 2014 is just another part of the past. And we’re more than halfway through January already!

Posted on January 10th, by Peter Parkorr in Roaming Resources. No Comments
Hands up if you’ve heard of Flipkey? Probably not, right? I’ve written about London holiday apartments before, so this is an addition to places you can shop around for the place to suit you.

In early August this year, I visited the Austrian city of Graz for the first time. I was there to check out the performance festival La Strada for the MustLoveFestivals project. Graz is Austria’s second city, but like me before I went, you may have absolutely no impression of it. In fact, I’d barely heard of it. I’ve been to Vienna three times on my travels, and despite being unimpressed with the capital at first (too many shops…), it is one of my very favourite cities of Europe.…
