This is me, on the Hudson River with the New York skyline in the background, excuse the hat, but this was a special couple’s wedding!

I have been lucky enough to have visited many exciting destinations for both pleasure and work over the years. My nickname, hence the travelblog name poshmumsjourneys, comes from my children and their friends, who think I rather poshly drink real ale, particularly at The Ship Isis in Sunderland! Choosing your itinerary carefully not only ensures that you experience sights and sounds that you truly desire, but you are less confined to standard timetables through independent booking, can add luxuries according to your budget and taste, and perhaps save a little of your funds in the process! I noticed a recent advert for a tailor made trip to Japan, costing £4,000 a person – we spent less than that for both of us, through researching options this magnificent country is more accessible than people perhaps realise. See my Osaka and Kyoto pages for details.

The Chinese New Year celebrations remind me of a wonderful visit to Singapore in February 2018, you can find out more about how we got there and around, what we did, and what we saw in the Singapore page. Ironically we cancelled our 2020 visit due to the coronavirus issue, yet at the time of writing the UK has almost as many cases.

I have covered several self-devised USA road trips including an exciting one in Texas, Louisiana & Arkansas in May 2019 – telling you how it was for us so you can see if it would work for you. We are planning to do a fly drive from Seattle in the Autumn all being well. I also want to feature South West Scotland, where we have spent many beautiful days, for me both as a child and currently, including little known Sanquhar & the delightful Blackaddie Country House – food so sublime I hardly want to share it! Follow me for free and share the love.
