The drive to Franc’s Peak took well over six hours. We loaded up the car and planned our route with the help of Google Earth. Where we were headed the roads have not been publicly mapped yet. The route was extraordinarily pretty and we drove through dramatic landscape and various Rocky Mountain American towns including […]

Juxtaposition – Rifles and Recreation

I’m still waiting on my rucksack to be delivered. It’s hot here in Bozeman and my sweater and hoodie are just not suitable day wear, so B and I headed into what looked like the toy town to shop. There are two main stores that people go to. The cultured, athletic and educated “folk” shop […]

I may have defied the Itinerary Gods in Chicago, but my luggage did not. I arrived in Bozeman at 10.30pm waited with anticipation for my rucksack and nada! It never made it onto the plane. I was fuming. It was clear that staff at the airport assumed that there was no way on earth I […]

Their sheer size and number was overwhelming. I was quite literally gobsmacked, a small feat for someone […]

Two weeks tomorrow I will be headed off for another adventure. At the ripe old age of 38 I will be camping for the first time. Shock horror!! For most TV presenters that would pose a challenge in itself. Do they make solar-powered hairdryers? But you see despite my so-called “glamazonian-image” I do actually enjoy […]

Switzerland

Chocolate, cheese and cows just some of the things Switzerland is famed for. I experienced all three in equal measure during my trip a few weeks ago. Staying in the beautiful area of Neuch√Ętel and La Chaux-de-Fonds I was fortunate to wake up to the gentle chiming of cow bells and chirping birds. The Jura […]
