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. As the days were getting shorter in the UK and Christmas loomed, it wasn’t a hard decision for me. I was only there for 4 days and change, but when you see the pictures below and my video, you’ll know why it was worth the journey.…

Today I’m posting some very brief highlights of a great road trip along the Wild Atlantic Way in the North West of Ireland, and Sligo specifically. My mum is going to love this post. Steady, Mum. Some observers’ highlights of the trip (which was part of TBEX Dublin) have already reached the papers and radio stations here, and I have such fantastic recordings to reveal over the coming days, but first here’s a touch of the magic I felt so far, and the reasons why…

A recent invitation to explore Versilia in Tuscany had me expecting corn fields and countryside, traditional Italian cooking, and picnics after a good days hike. 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.…


The Most Romantic Place I’ve Ever Been – St Andrews, Scotland

Posted on February 22nd, by Peter Parkorr in Britain, Scotland, Video Adventures. 16 comments

I’ve been to my fair share of romantic places. From wandering the cobbled streets of Paris, to hot chocolate at sunset on the top of California’s Big Sur, and drinking Champagne cocktails on the 35th floor of a quiet candle lit bar in Tokyo. Still, I’ve never really felt the location was anything more than just a backdrop to the company….
