French Wedding

Most of my family now live in France so I visit the country quite a lot but this year I got to see a new area, the Gers region which is South-West France. We flew into Toulouse airport where we were greeted by my family ready to take us to our hotel in Auch. The … More French Wedding


As part of my week long holiday to Crete we spent a morning touring the beautiful island of Spinalonga.
