I am a retired school teacher originally from Staffordshire. During my childhood much of my family travelling was limited to the North Wales caravan resorts of Rhyl and Abergele and the annual pilgrimage to the North West beach resort of Blackpool to view the nationally famous Illuminations in the late autumn. In my early twenties I began travelling a little wider spending some of my time grape picking around Perpignan and working as a volunteer rebuilding a 16th century castle in Austria. I took my first flight at the age of thirty, a short hop across the English Channel to Paris from London.
My blogs are about visits I have made to countries, cities and special events as well as Hotel, Restaurant and pub reviews. The website is unique in that it is aimed at mature singles or couples who now have the time and income to experience and visit new travel destinations and enjoy the best Hotel accommodation and restaurants.
I have written about my stay at the famous Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool, the Anthony Gormley statues at `Another Place` on Crosby Beach, The National Football Museum, the `In Focus – Henri Matisse Exhibition at Tate Liverpool and the iconic `Ferry cross the Mersey. I have also written blogs about the `German` Christmas Market in Birmingham, The Beatles `Casbah Coffee Club` in Liverpool, Upstairs and Downstairs for Christmas at Audley End House in Saffron Walden and a host of other visits including my visit to the David Mellor Cutlery factory ` The Round Building` in Hathersage, Derbyshire and a number of restaurant reviews in the counties of Northamptonshire and Leicestershire.
I have also written blogs about the Canadian Rockies, Carneval di Venezia, Stockholm, Lisbon, Madrid, the Aston Martin factory, Cambridge University Botanic Gardens, Totnes, Florence and Cotswold Towns demonstrating the range of subjects I am able to write about. This year I also wrote about the Countryfile Live event at Blenheim Palace.
In January/February 2017 I shall be writing a travel blog detailing my month long trip to Australia visiting Sydney/Melbourne/Adelaide/TheGhan/Uluru/Alice Springs/Cairns/Great Barrier Reef.
My blogs are far reaching and provide a great deal of interest and influence on which places to visit for my many readers. I do hope you can support my blog by voting for Mr The Travel Locker in the UK Blog Awards 2017.
Thank you for your support.
