Brian’s Travel Spot

A screen shot of the travel map during my flight from London to Miami with British Airways. Here the plane is over the Atlantic, about 3/4 of the way to Miami.Welcome to Brian’s Travel Spot. This is currently a work-in-progress, so please excuse the relatively sparse nature of the page. For now it serves to collate all my trip pages, which is where you’ll find details of the trips I’ve taken since I started the Travel Spot in 2015, plus one trip I took two years before that in 2013.

Each page starts with a description of the trip itself, followed by a summary of the Travel Spots that I’ve written about that particular trip, plus the Coffee Spots that I visited.

I wrote my first Travel Spot in 2015, documenting my coast-to-coast trip across the USA by train. I didn’t leave the UK again until February the following year, but then my travel started to take off (literally) with my new job. It then came to just as abrupt an end with the COVID-19 pandemic. Although I wasn’t travelling then, it did give me the chance to write up some of my previous trips, including the one from 2013. Then, in 2022, the travel-go-round started up again, although in typical fashion, my trips come along far faster than I can write them up…

This list is organised by year, and contains all the trips I’ve taken outside of the UK, plus one trip within the UK. Not all the trips have complete pages yet: if the trip has a link, then the page is live.
