Hands up if you get inspired by a good travel blog!
When it’s raining at home, or the rat race is getting you down, it’s wonderful to look at some stunning photographs and read about other people’s adventures in far off lands.
It can give you the motivation to keep saving to fund your travels or it might spark interest in a place you’d never considered before.
One such blogger is Heather Tyler. She currently lives in Australia and her blog is a little bit different to most; which is why we love it.
With boundless curiosity about our world, Heather believes travel, food and culture are inseparable. And unlike many travellers which their jam-packed schedules, she loves to respectfully connect with a place rather than rush through.
You feel yourself slowing down when you read her pages, taking long sighs as you wish for a slower pace of life yourself. You’ll be inspired to plan your next adventure and want to schedule in plenty of time for really getting into the heart and soul of a place.
You’ll want to meet the locals, leisurely browse flea markets and spend time people watching in pavement cafes.
Heather’s main areas of interest include Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Like us, Heather is fascinated by people and loves to sample local cuisine.
You’ll get a mix of the sublime and the practical with Heather’s blog. One moment you’re closing your spooning the froth off hot chocolate in Athens with eyes closed upwards to the sun and the next you’re picking up tips for travelling on a budget. Now you’re being whisked away to delight in the menu at a Cottage Bar in Sydney, before discovering life hacks for women who travel alone…
We were thrilled that Heather chose to share our Secret Cottage Tour with her readers in her post “Taste the Cotswolds”.
Heather connected with us on Twitter and was intrigued by our tour, describing the area as ‘Fairytale like’. One of her regular readers commented that the tour looked ‘Enchanting’; and these are words we hear used time and time again.
Our tour IS like stepping into fairyland. If you want your very own tea party and guided Cotswolds Tour, let us supply everything you need. We’ll pick you up from Moreton-In-Marsh station – making us one of the best day trips from London – take you on a tour of picturesque villages and views before inviting you back to our private home for locally sourced food.
