On this page, I’ve brought together most if not all of my travel posts, except those describing visits (in the UK) to National Trust and English Heritage properties. These you can find on another page.

I have a series of general travel posts, under the heading Around the world in 40 years, in which I have written about my many travels worldwide. Then there is a set of posts about trips around the UK, in Asia, and South and Central America.

Our elder daughter and her family live in Minnesota. Since 2010 (after I retired) Steph and I have traveled to the USA each year, and made long road trips. These are described in some detail. And I’ve also plotted many of the special places we have visited on a map.

I’ve visited all the states colored blue. In the two states shown in green, I’ve just touched down during a flight before proceeding on the same flight. I have not yet visited the states in white – although we plan to visit those in the northeast later this year.
