Travel Round-up: A medley for March

travelLast month I promised a smorgasbord of skiing posts but as most people have only just returned from their half-term trips, I thought it best to leave it until next time to give everyone a chance to write about their snowy experiences.

Instead I would like to tantalise your travelling taste buds with offerings from near and far. Let’s start in the UK where we have the perfect winter cottage in Scotland, luxury caravanning in Cornwall, a weekend in Hampshire, a family trip to London and a no-kids romantic break in Manchester.

Lots to choose from in Europe: capital cities Amsterdam, Paris and Ljubljana are explored and a theme park in Tenerife is enjoyed. Elsewhere, Flanders looks fascinating, Bologna is beautiful and there’s a winter blast from Lapland and Iceland.

For most of us, travel means going on holiday to relax and explore but sometimes we travel in order to be a witness: to see, remember and report back. Tanya, Mummy Barrow, travelled to Jordan with WorldVisionUK as part of their #BarefootCoatless campaign. She visited the refugee camps there, housing tens of thousands of displaced Syrian people. She became our eyes and ears and on her blog you can read a number of posts where she exposes the problems and shares some of the solutions. Here’s one post to give you a flavour of the situation:
