    Behind the Scenes at Goathland Station

    By
    31 July 2017

    It's probably one of the most famous unknown train stations in England. You might have seen it in films and television series, but not been sure where it is - or even if it exists at all outside a carefully constructed set in a studio. Goathland train station, the 3rd stop along the line of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway from Pickering to Whitby, does exist, and it's frankly idyllic.

    As vibrant and full of flavour as the countries they originate from, South American cuisine is often a wonderful representative for the continent’s lust for life as well as fairly ecological, utilising local crops and ingredients that have been harvested in this part of the world for generations. Savour the taste of ancient civilisations in Peru or experience tender steaks in Argentina; when your taste buds are calling out for a zing of excitement, this is the place to go!

    20 Years of Harry Potter

    Whether you read a chapter or two each night to your children, or grandchildren, or enjoyed secretly devouring page after page by wand light, er of course I mean lamp light; the Harry Potter novels and later film franchise, are sure to have had some kind of impact on most denizens of Britain’s green and pleasant lands. With its messages of tolerance, bumbling wizards inhabiting tumbledown cottages, filled with eclectic and magically misbehaved nick-knacks, and scenic descriptions of swathey Scottish landscapes, it’s obvious to any discerning reader that good old Blighty is almost as much a leading character throughout all seven books as Harry himself.

    Cruising is big business, especially now as cruise companies head into ever more unchartered waters. Once the simple statement, ‘we’re heading off on a cruise this summer’ would have evoked images of a sedate lap around the Mediterranean, but no longer! With lines such as Hurtigruten offering adventures across Scandinavia and unique experiences up for grabs in Asia - Halong Bay in Vietnam not only offers warm waters for swimming and mind-boggling geological formations, but cruising is the only way to access this island labyrinth - it’s no wonder that the demand for holidays afloat is increasing year after year.
