Tell us about 3 of your most memorable travelling moments or experiences?

My recent holiday in the USA for 5 weeks with wife & 2 kids . It was a great experience for so many reasons, we visited family in Canada & saw Niagara Falls in all it’s glory. We visited cities, beaches and theme parks as well as a cruise in the Bahamas, very memorable indeed .

A Tuscan cooking experience in Montecatini,  Florence ( Italy)  a few years ago . It is run by my cousin & it was both emotional and such a wonderful & memorable experience .

Victoria Falls – Wow , what an amazing experience .

Most talked about or memorable moment was missing a flight from London to Italy & then leaving my wife on a train in Italy that went without me. She had all the luggage,  no money , no tickets & no passport . I then had to catch another train & met up with her 2 hours later when the train had to make an unscheduled stop .  It was not funny at the time but we still talk about it years later & see the positive & funny side of it . It was truly an adventure !!
