Travel, they say, broadens the mind, and that’s undoubtedly true. It has a number of other health benefits as well, so if you’re contemplating going on a journey, or you have to persuade the other half, here’s a few good reasons to give it a go.
If you’re not sure where to go, or what the experience may be like, you might enjoy my personal travel journey, where I record our experiences – with pictures.
Each of these links will get you to a page of links to posts for that trip. Then you can follow the links at the bottom of each post (although that doesn’t always work), or go back to the trip’s base page to find another link that takes your fancy. Enjoy.
