The Isle of Wight. Liz Nice followed in the footsteps of many of our greatest writers and poets on the island’s literary heroes trail

Lisbon is the epitome Portuguese culture. When visiting, don’t miss out on these must-see sights and eatery experiences.

Why not beat the winter blues by booking yourself a trip to one of these top travel destinations, as chosen by people in Norfolk and Suffolk.

It’s common knowledge that Norfolk offers all manner of diversity... except mountains. Don Black writes about discovering the fact late in life.

Eileen Wise and Roger Hermiston were drawn to Ireland, where the ‘peace comes dropping slow’

The phrase ‘Beeching Axe’ is back in the news, with Transport Secretary Chris Grayling saying some lost railways could be reopened. Steven Russell looks back to the day the planned cuts rocked East Anglia

Valencia could well be one of the best family city break destinations in Europe, says Charlotte Smith-Jarvis.

PAUL GEATER told viewers that if he and his daughter won Pointless he’d take his wife to Berlin. Three days after the programme was screened they were on the plane from Stansted. But what’s the German capital like for a Pointless break?

Last week we left Trans Euro Trail-blazer Ian Womack handing over his passport to police in Albania after being hit by another motorcyclist who fled the scene. But this low point turned into a highlight of his 10,000km adventure.

East Anglian action man Ian Womack – former soldier, ex-firefighter and all-round adventurer – is one of the first motorcyclists to tackle 10,000km of the new, dirt road Trans Euro Trail. In the first of a two-part feature he tells of the thrills and spills of this epic challenge.

Club La Santa, Lanzarote is an on-the-go volcanic-isle fitness oasis for those who are after a holiday that’s not all about lying on a beach and soaking up the sun.

Weekends have a tendency to disappear in a blur of swimming lessons, household chores and football matches, and it is not until you escape for a mini-break that you realise just what you can do in 48 hours.

Christmas is largely over-rated. There I have said it. Why would you want to fight over a parking space in Tesco when you could have the slopes to yourself in Sestriere?

The writing’s on the wall... or rather, it’s on social media as people opt for selfies instead of postcards.

The budget airline, Ryanair, announced last week that it would be making daily cancellations to its flights to improve punctuality until the end of October.

From more traffic lights and speed bumps to tougher fines and ‘psychological techniques’, today we are asking: what is the best way to reduce speeding in 30mph zones in Ipswich?

Adventurer Ray Mears wonders whether wildlife documentaries are working when it comes to inspiring the next generation of conservationists and how Lyme Disease threatened to end his career ahead of his East Anglian shows.

If you thought caravanning wasn’t for you, perhaps you should think again. It’s come a long way in the last few decades, as Sheena Grant discovered during a trip to Essex.

I ventured just a few miles down the road from my Ipswich home for a luxury overnight stay, as too often we forget that sometimes the best places to visit are right on our doorstep.

Breaking Bad fans, Roger Hermiston and Eileen Wise, were touring New Mexico when they stopped off in the show’s home town of Albuquerque for a special tour of the programme’s top locations.

You quickly understand why they call New Mexico the ‘Land of Enchantment’. Majestic snow-covered mountains, beautiful desert vistas, delightful mountain villages of horse pasture and stylish adobe homes – all spread out beneath a vast, starlit sky.

Charlotte Smith-Jarvis and family leave the tech at home and enjoy a leisurely weekend boating on the Norfolk Broads.
