Dolphins for breakfast! LINDA JACKSON
Written by Linda Jackson   
Wednesday, 28 October 2009
Breakfast was very, very different to the norm. I didn't expect to find dolphins on the menu at the Crinan Hotel, an intimate 'gourmet' hotel at the north end of the Crinan Canal on Argyll's wild coastline. Oysters, jumbo prawns, lobsters would not have been a surprise... after all, fish is landed daily 50 yards from the hotel's kitchen. But to have 20 dolphins or more, blatantly displayed at breakfast-time, with their tiny calves alongside, was almost too much to bear. I couldn't. I jumped up from the table, ran out of the restaurant, camera in hand. What a thrilling sight... dolphins galore, jumping and playing in the loch just yards from the hotel.

For travel journalists who specialise in writing about superyachts, Arizona in the USA might be a strange state for us to visit. Fact is that we came out here before we visit Fort Lauderdale and the annual boat show there. Being the consummate travel professionals we are Frances & Michael Howorth are as always gathering good stories and fabulous photographs and have lots to offer editors looking for stories with a twist. Arizona, Florida and later next week the Bahamas we have a fund of travel features to offer.

Working on Footprint Normandy - deadline end November
Written by Andrew Sanger   
Sunday, 25 October 2009
I'm busy writing the Footprint Normandy guide, which will be published in 2010. Currently working on the Calvados chapter. There's more to Calvados than apple brandy. This is the departement with the pretty, cheese-producing Pays d'Auge, the once-chic resort of Deauville, the D-Day Landing Beaches and the city of Caen - built and fortified by William the Conqueror.

Every picture tells a story... often it suggests that the photographer should learn how to use his or her camera. These days everyone with a laptop, a decent camera and a rucksack fancies him- or herself as a travel writer and/or photographer. Which can make it challenging for those of us who have made it our long-term vocation on the assumption that quality and appropriate remuneration still matter. In any case, after more than 20 years of travel writing and...

"As the sun warmed on my back, bees bumbled from Gentian to Orchid to Bloody Cranesbill and, as the umpteenth noisy tour group weaved off down the narrow road, the sounds of nature return to Poulnabrone. But not for long, if I’m lucky there will be a 5-minute gap before the next tour bus arrives.
High up on the limestone Burren in County Clare the dolman or portal tomb of Poulnabrone is the most photographed monument in Ireland."
