Are you a list queen like me? Or, I guess, king.
But I don’t really believe most men make lists compulsively like women do.
Well in 2017 I started planning my travels (as well as a whole heap of other stuff) with a mind map instead of a list – and I am a total convert.
Here’s why I think everyone should consider mapping out their future travels instead of listing them…
There’s bound to be a special place in anyone’s heart for the first exotic holiday location to which they ever travel.
While my first foreign holiday was to Greece (in typically British style) my first ever experience of a long haul destination was landing in Denpasar airport, Bali, more years ago than I care to admit – and I was overwhelmed, intoxicated and amazed in equal measure.
Now all those memories have come flooding back as my youngest brother has been bitten by the travel bug and found himself travelling to my favourite paradise island: Bali…
First off, apologies for that rather clickbaity headline.
I wanted to be sure to get your attention if you have subscribed to Microsoft Office 365 (as I did) or are considering it.
Maybe you use Microsoft Office 365 for your email hosting, or use Office software like Word, Excel, Sharepoint, One Drive or any of the suite of features it offers.
I’ve just discovered something about Microsoft Office 365 that has a major impact on any travel blogger, travel writer, digital nomad, location independent worker, or SME with offices in different countries.
I just wish someone had told ME this before I signed up…
Traditional New Year may be well and truly over, but somehow it’s STILL January, leaving most of us with a serious case of the blues.
Luckily Chinese New Year is here and that means another reason to celebrate.
Especially if you find yourself kicking off the Year of the Rooster in style and winning one of the 4 amazing prizes I’m giving away in my Hong Kong Competition…
I went to Devon for a weekend of cream teas and beach walks.
But ever one for adventure when I discovered that the UK’s best flight simulator is right here on the south coast, I set aside a couple of hours to try it out.
This is the story of learning to fly a 737 in Devon…

I’ve never been one for naval gazing on this site, or on social media in general. So this is a real first. But stick with me, there’s something in it for you. I promise.
I love travel (obvious?) and I’ve been obsessed with it for 40 years. My aim when I started SavoirThere in 2011 was to have a single place to write down my answers to all the travel questions people asked me, so I could help them out more.
I’ve always wanted to share my travel knowledge – hence the name. I really can’t stand the idea of people getting a raw deal or not having a great holiday, especially if I can help.
But since then the internet has really changed, travel has changed quite a lot too, heck the world has REALLY changed (I’m not going to get into that right here, right now, don’t worry) so I think it is time for this blog to change…
Munch on mince pies made with flour dating back to the Domesday Book
I travelled to Devon this December to discover the festive history behind the first Christmas card ever designed.
But while in the southerly English county, famous for its beautiful beaches and picture postcard villages, I discovered the area has another incredible – and edible – Christmassy claim to fame.
Devon’s Otterton Mill is the producer of mince pies made at the oldest recorded bakery on the planet, making these the world’s most historic mince pies…
