    From the thousands of photos take during our travels to Italy, Greece, France, Monaco, Spain, Ireland, United Kingdom and Czech Republic, these are my favourite.

The variety in culture, language, food, attire and customs is perceptible with just a 30-minute drive down the road. Go for a little longer and you’ll find yourself in a completely different country!
