Happy Photo Friday! This week saw the worlds first International Day of Happiness, as orchestrated by the UN, and supported by the Happiness 1st Institute and the International Society of Happiness Professionals. Honestly, just hearing of the existence of these organisations brought a smile to my face.

Malta – it’s a funny place. Part way between Africa and Europe, full-way between all the different cultures that have washed over it through the generations. I personally invaded Malta for a 2011-2012 Christmas getaway with family, three generations at once, shrieking children included.

Happy Photo Friday! Today’s picture of the week is Guimaraes Castle in Braga, a region of Northern Portugal.

With only a few more days until ITB Berlin 2013 kicks off, I’m sure many of my fellow bloggers are feeling a similar mixture of trepidation and excitement about attending the worlds largest travel trade show…. Having read lots of great advice from bloggers with experience and industry professionals that work with bloggers, time will tell if I’m adequately prepared for this huge event.
