I'm going to be taking a more niche approach, blogging specifically about domestic tourism in England's Northwest, where I live, and Wales, where I've worked a lot over the last few years.
The idea came to me while walking home through the streets of Chester after a recent press conference. There are so many good places to talk about in terms of tourism around the Northwest, such as Peckforton Castle picture above right, but not many writers talking about it. So I will.
This is not a PR-sponsored blog. I'm making no money from it. It's about my subjective take on regional tourism as I see. That said, I'm happy to hear from anyone with ideas worthy of coverage that other outlets have may have ignored.
It's also an outlet to showcase some links to stories that have grabbed my attention and to highlight some links to my stories about the region published in newspapers and magazines. Here's one to get the ball rolling: my piece about the Cheshire Food Trail in the Observer.
What's not changing is my enthusiasm for your comments, praise, criticism and general feedback. Post, please, post.
Time to hit the North. As in, get your arse over here.
