Join Honkopoly in London for Sports Relief

TweetOn a Tube map, the distances look small. On the Monopoly board they’re even closer. But when I walked part of the route for #TeamHonk in London, organised around Monopoly board properties, I was beat. I came home and collapsed on the sofa while lots of the other bloggers were still pounding the pavement. We started off in Vauxhall, at the offices of Comic Relief.

Your Instagram pictures on marshmallows

Top tips for travel bloggers

Tweet  World Travel Market (WTM) in London is a must-attend event for any travel blogger or journalist. Every year I dread it. It’s vast, held in the ExCel Centre in far east London and utterly exhausting with all the stands, crowds, opportunities and ideas. That said, I also wouldn’t miss it for the world. I always come away energised and excited about covering travel and about all the...
