Get your travel mojo

I try to aim to discover a new city or country each year. 

Tourist the stereotype

The tourist can be a horrible stereotype: the trick is to blend in with the locals, showing respect for their culture. You'll find more opportunities are open to you if you follow this simple rule.

Choose a destination

"Life is like a box of chocolates" well, picking a destination certainly is. You can see what it looks like on paper, the box certainly looks appealing but you never know what it's like inside until you've taken a bite. Don't keep going back to the ganache, find a new favourite; a salt caramel perhaps?

Find your inspiration

Films and books are a fabulous source of inspiration. Picture in your mind a movie which has taken your breath away. For me it was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and so this year I went to Petra in Jordan where the holy grail was hidden. If you think Sound of Music then Salzburg is for you, Moulin Rouge, Paris calls for you or Amadeus, Prague is your perfect place. If books trigger your inspiration then head to Dorset is Tess of the D'Urbervilles is a firm favourite, Transylvannia if Bram Stoker's Dracula makes your blood run cold or Florence if A Room with a View is a literary favourite.
