A year of memorable moments

A year of memorable moments

2015-09-21 10.42.25IT IS hard to imagine that another year has seamlessly slipped anchor and we are into 2016, with the diary already filling up with new adventures. 2015 was a busy time for Essential Journeys, with trips to Canada, France, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, Turkey, Greece, Northern Ireland, and our own fair isle. As a happy reflection of my recent travels, I have compiled a small selection of photographs, with accompanying links, should you wish to gain a further insight into any of the destinations. In the meantime, a Happy New Year to you all!
