I love to travel. I love to write. Why is it then I seem unable to marry them up – to whip up a travel blog while on holiday? Is it that I am incapable of sitting still while there are places to be and new people to meet? Or that when exhaustion sets in, I inevitably find myself immersed in a wonderful novel set in whichever country I’m visiting; reading about the locale rather than writing about it.

My sister-in-law, Christine Childs , however is one of those people who has managed to master the art of the travel blog. Feel free to read about her latest trip to Iceland, Norway and the UK.
