I have been REALLY lucky just to travel and see some of the amazing things I have so far in my life. I am sometimes flabbergasted at my luck when it comes to the kindness of others. I often find if you ask nicely, people are happy to help and interested in what you are trying to do.

They put me in a suite with a view that was…well it wasn’t at all shabby!
