Today I’m sharing photographs of London from the Skylounge at DoubleTree Hilton, near London’s Tower Bridge. I popped back the morning after a Traverse event last year to reclaim my forgotten jacket (which now resides in Edinburgh after being forgotten there too) and got some great panoramas of London from the rooftop bar.

Last November I popped down to London from the North, to attend WTM 2013 at the ExCeL. With lots of work to do before and during the trade show, and evening events filling up the rest of the time, I was in no mood for a shared dorm… in a hostel.

During an action-packed week in Emilia Romagna, I managed to snap a few photo’s of the folks I met and spent time with, including Italian people and fellow bloggers.…
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!
A is for Amsterdam… and all the red lights, which I’m sure would make Santa happy.
