A Blog Day Afternoon in Kingston Upon Thames

Posted on April 30th, by Peter Parkorr in Britain, London, Picture Perfect. 18 comments
My life as a travel blogger took me to Kingston recently, a suburb of London. It’s a nice little place that is easy to get to, but feels a million miles from the capital.

Why I Went To Catania For 3 Days And Stayed For 2 Months

Catania is one of the two big cities in Sicily. Palermo is the other one, nearly on the opposite side of the island. A lot of people prefer Palermo to Catania, but not me. I’ve put a few photos of Catania together to try to explain why.There’s more to Catania than meets the eye.

Tips for visiting Helsinki in Summer Last time I went on a 2000km road trip in Finland and really loved seeing other parts of the country, before spending a few days in the capital.…

The Best of Graz, Austria’s Second City

Posted on October 17th, by Peter Parkorr in Austria, Roaming Resources. 21 comments
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.…
