I love an indoor market and Chorsu is up there with the best. The colourful displays of sweets, cakes, nuts & aromatic spices are quite a picture, but it is the hustle & bustle that that goes on over two floors that is the real draw. The picture below is the main domed building of […]
Wales has some stunning coastline. You could be forgiven for thinking the picture below was taken in the Caribbean rather than on the coast between Pembroke and St David’s. Why not join us every Monday morning by posting an inspiring picture featuring the colour blue. @wilburstravels
I visited Northern Sardinia in 2005. Mrs Wilbur & I flew into Olbia and hired a car to explore the beautiful coastal region of the island. The area is known as Costa Smeralda which translates as the Emerald Coast on account of the amazing blue waters. Join us over on Twitter to post a photo […]
Most Roman ruins have at least one memorable feature such as an impressive amphitheatre, triumphal arch, aqueduct or bathhouse.

I spotted this police car parked up outside Tirana’s main police station in 2007. I didn’t think it would fare to well in chasing criminals, but I am sure it had its day!
This week’s MMB comes from my first and last decent length trip of 2020 when I did a Riga/Tallinn combination with Mrs Wilbur and our friend Chris. The Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) district of the Latvian capital may well be the best such district in Europe – unless you know better that is? Why not take […]
More memories of Cuba for this week’s Monday Morning Blues. Santiago de Cuba is Cuba’s second city, was the fulcrum of the Revolution and is now the unofficial capital of music & dance.
