Travel Jottings

Celebrating the best bits and bobs to be found while exploring Europe and North America. Much is inspired by real outings, whether they were walking, cycling or photographic in nature, while virtual blundering in the name of planning them has turned up some gems too. Regardless of how they were found, I hope that they keep coming so I can continue to share new things with you here.

California Travel Directory

This words are being written in the midst of a global virus pandemic that has restricted travel so we often have to dream about coming trips. Given that and the song of which it remind some, I have collected here a list of websites that could inspire a trip to California when things have settle down in coming years. My interests in mountain areas remain but there are other places to go too. The eventual plan is to have this in actual article format like others in this part of the website but these are provided here to get things going.
