A Luxury stay in the Indian Ocean at Constance Le Prince Maurice, Mauritius

Posted on January 16th, by Peter Parkorr in Mauritius, Picture Perfect. 1 Comment

In November I was invited to visit the luxury hotel ‘Constance Le Prince Maurice‘ in Mauritius, to make a video for them.

Faces of Blogville – Portraits from Bologna, Emilia Romagna

It will certainly resonate with a lot of people who make daily sacrifices to be able to do something different or something that they love.…

Just wanted to show you how incredible technology can be as a traveller, or for anyone who is perma-curious.
Look at this little exchange of information and niceties between myself, Serena Puosi (currently in Italy I think? To be confirmed…) and Jodi SchmEttenberg*, who is mid-flight somewhere between Canada and Vietnam!…

Tis the season to be merry, and I decided to wish you Happy Christmas in travel photos from places I visited in the last 12 months!

H is for Hamburg, where the cultivated shapes and new developments at Hafencity put me in mind of an architects model. With some fluke Christmas trees too!
