In November I was invited to visit the luxury hotel ‘Constance Le Prince Maurice‘ in Mauritius, to make a video for them. As the days were getting shorter in the UK and Christmas loomed, it wasn’t a hard decision for me.

I’m sure you can do all those things quite easily, but this trip to Tuscany was a little alternative… You can see my musings and photos from Tuscany in the trip write-up for BudgetTraveller.org, called ‘Five ways Versilia won’t be the Tuscany you expected’, and below I’m publishing a few more photos from Versilia that show yet more of the alternative side to Tuscany.…
