Here is a collection of my funniest (allegedly) and most popular posts on this travel blog. Or at least they’re the ones you lot seem to love for some reason. I wouldn’t read any of this drivel, personally…
- 42 first impressions and weird things about America – A mammoth essay of a post that starts off talking about how much water is in American toilets. Doesn’t get any better than that.
- 40 things to do in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal – My most-shared post of all time. Another ridiculously long one.
- How to plan a trip to Japan: everything you need to know for your first visit – I’ve been told this is my most (only?) useful post. Actual human beings have emailed me saying they used it when researching Japan travels and it came in handy. So there.
- How to pack a suitcase in 10 steps without crying or screaming – Not guaranteed to work.
- 10 things to do in Stockport: a town of vegan eats and vintage treats – My most popular UK-based post. People really love Stockport.
- A fairytale city break in Ljubljana, Slovenia: things to see, do and eat – I’m no photographer. But my prettiest shots can all be found in this guide. Not as popular as many of the other posts on this page but it’s a personal favourite.
- Isle of Man travel guide: things to do, where to eat, places to see – I like writing about scones and cats.
- Eight places to visit in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland – A collection for my mini series on South West Scotland. It links off to eight separate posts about different towns/villages/things, with Kirkcudbright and the walk from Rockcliffe to Kippford being by far the most popular.
- 12 things to do in Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria – It must be all those whimsical cottages and cobbled streets.
- One day in Kobe, Japan: things to do in the floral city – My most-read post ever. I get hundreds of views a day on it. I’m including it quietly at the end of this list because it’s obviously something people like, but I’m the first to admit it isn’t the most entertaining post. Practical though.
