Travels with Mum, 1991

In 1991, a year after my father's death, my mother took me on my first trip to Europe. We flew to London and spent four weeks driving throughout England, Scotland and Wales, following my mother's itinerary, carefully planned to show me all her favourite places.

Arriving back in London, we flew to Paris for a three-day side trip. There we delighted in the city's famous sights and enjoyed excursions to Versailles and Fontainebleau, returning to England to complete our trip with a week in London, staying in a hotel near Hyde Park.
