Holy Island is off the Northumberland Coast and can be reached by car at low tide or by boat from Seahouses. We took the latter option at high tide and were rewarded by virtually having the island to ourselves. You can just pick out Lindisfarne Castle in the background of the photo below.

Monday Morning Blues – Port Olimpic, Barcelona

Barcelona waterfront was redeveloped for the 1992 Olympics, an area that I first stayed by in 2000 on our honeymoon. It is an area choc full of lovely fish restaurants and a scattering of pricey hotels. The hop on hop off buses also head there. Well worth a stop to walk barefoot in the sand […]

Monday Morning Blues – Prickly Pears For Sale, Sarande in Albania

In 2017 I paid my second visit to Albania, arriving by ferry from Corfu to Sarande and then taking a bus up to Tirana. Sarande is a beautiful coastal town, perhaps more synonymous with Greece than Albania. Join us on Twitter to post your own blues busting photos each Monday morning – @wilburstravels
