ICELAND

For Debbie's birthday in 2015 we took a short break to Iceland, with plans to see the Northern Lights (we didn't, although the camera did) to go whale watching (we didn't see any) and swim in the Blue Lagoon while it was snowing (we did, but it didn't snow). But it was a fantastic trip anyway!

AMERICA

We flew to New York to see the amazing autumn colours of the American Northeast, travelling inland on a small ship to Quebec and Montreal via the Hudson River, Erie Canal and St Lawrence Seaway.

SWEDEN

The Göta canal crosses Sweden from Stockholm to Gothenburg. We spent a week in 2013 cruising the length of this beautiful canal on a historic passenger boat. This account of the trip includes more photos than any of our other travel pages; I thoroughly recommend that you have a look at it.

RUSSIA

We've been to Russia twice now. Our first visit in 2007 was a wonderful cruise from Moscow to St Petersburg, and we managed to return in 2011 for a longer cruise from St Petersburg to Astrakhan and Rostov-on-Don. We've written lots about the two visits, the cruises and the places we visited - and there are lots of fabulous pictures for you to enjoy.

ANTARCTICA

In 2003 we went on our trip-of-a-lifetime cruise to the last unspoiled place on planet Earth, the great white continent of Antarctica. The wildlife, the scenery, the whole experience: it was absolutely fantastic. I've just finished putting a brief summary of the trip here on the website: have a look, I think you'll find it fascinating. Again, here are just 5 pictures to whet your appetite.

Do you like these pictures? I took over a thousand pictures in Antarctica - after all, I don't expect I'll get the chance to go back and take any more - and I've collected the 120 best with our log of the trip for you to see.

ALASKA

After Norway we decided that we liked cruising the fjords, so we celebrated our Silver Wedding in 2001 with another fjord cruise, this time off the spectacular coast of Alaska. Yet again here are 5 pictures to tempt you to read the full account of the trip

NORWAY

The first of our really BIG trips abroad was the fortnight we spent in 1999, cruising the coast of Norway and visiting all the fjords on the Hurtigruten (Norwegian Coastal Express), travelling past North Cape to the Russian border in the Land of the Midnight Sun. Once again here are 5 pictures to tempt you to read the full account of the trip
