Taking a pilgrimage for your health: A first timer’s guide

Dec 06 2019

When I was 14 I went on a pilgrimage to Assisi (Umbria, Italy) with my aunt who was very keen to show me some of her volunteering work. I did not expect it to be fun, but I still have fond memories of that trip.

Christmas in Tuscany

Nov 21 2019

London Mums’ travel blogger from Italy, Rita Kobrak, has sent us lovely tips on how to spend Christmas in Tuscany.  

Take advantage of the school holidays to go on a trip to Tuscany and let a local Tuscan chef prepare a delicious Tuscan Christmas lunch feast for you and your family to remember. No shopping, no cooking and no washing up! The fantastic food, the welcoming attitude and inclusion of children makes Tuscany so special for families. There are less tourists at Christmas time and more Italians walking around the streets and squares. There are plenty of Christmas markets, Arezzo being a good one to visit.

Chatting to Malcolm Bruce about The Music of Cream and how rock music can start a revolution

Oct 03 2019

It doesn’t happen every day to have a wonderful conversation with a person you deeply connect with at so many levels, let alone when that person is Malcolm Bruce, the son of Jack Bruce, one of the most iconic rock musicians the world has ever seen. Jack Bruce along with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker were Cream, a band with a chemical explosion like no other, the blueprint for every supergroup to follow and the heavy blues precursor to Hendrix, Zeppelin and so much more. Fifty years since their earth-shaking debut album, the bloodlines of that hallowed trilogy come together to pay tribute to Cream’s legendary four-album reign over the psychedelic frontier of the late 1960s. Kofi Baker (son of Ginger) and Malcolm Bruce unite with Will Johns (Eric’s nephew by marriage and son of Zeppelin/ Stones/ Hendrix engineer Andy) to unleash the sound that roused a generation: songs like “Spoonful”,Strange Brew”,Sunshine of Your Love”,White Room”, “Crossroads” and “Badge” are performed by the next generation of Cream, master musicians in their own right whose lives have been steeped in the Cream spirit and legacy.
