    When Sean Mallen finally landed his dream job, it fell on him like a ton of bricks.Not unlike the plaster in his crappy, overpriced London flat.  
    The veteran journalist was ecstatic when he unexpectedly got the chance he’d
    always craved: to be a London-based foreign correspondent. It meant living in a
    great city and covering great events, starting with the Royal Wedding of William
    and Kate. Except: his tearful wife and six-year-old daughter hated the idea of
    uprooting their lives and moving to another country.  
    Falling for London is the hilarious and touching story of how he convinced
    them to go, how they learned to live in and love that wondrous but challenging
    city, and how his dream came true in ways he could have never expected.

    On her 82nd birthday, a grandmother was challenged to hike 100 kilometres (62miles) in Spain’s Galician mountains. Walking the ancient Camino de Santiago route with a heavy backpack, she faced adventures with other pilgrims, sticky mud, steep climbs and blistering midday heat. This was one way she faced the adventures and challenges of the third or late age.
    This uplifting book addresses the question for those in their 50s and beyond: ‘What now, what next, what has it all been about?’ It shows that far from settling into comfy slippers, whatever problems life presents, if a new challenge is accepted, a purposeful new life adventure begins.

    In response to so many questions to us from family and friends asking about our various recent trips to the UK, we thought it a good idea to put some of our thoughts down on paper in the hope it would prove useful to a wider range of hopeful tourists. Our personal perspective was that we were mature age tourists, interested in history, nice scenery and the usual touristy things, but especially also as motoring enthusiasts we wanted to visit car and aircraft museums and motoring events. We also selected interesting and old pub type hotels with good food and a master plan to be in the bar by 4.30 pm each day.

    edinburgh – the beauty in the north.
    Edinburgh. Nestled in an idyllic natural landscape between the shores of the Firth of Forth and the volcanic hills that are the gateway to the Scottish Highlands. A small capital, on the fringe of Europe – but so much more, and with so much more to discover. 
    Climb King Arthur’s Seat for a view of the rugged scenery that surrounds the city. Discover buildings, streets and areas with histories richer and deeper than Edinburgh’s emblematic castle. When the weather turns, take shelter in breathtaking museums and galleries like the National Museum of Scotland or the little Writers’ Museum – many of them absolutely free.
    Partake of a pub experience like no other, or join a traditional Ceilidh dance evening. Around every corner, the charm of small shops, cafes and restaurants invite you to abide and wander. No doubt you’ll want to join in a malt whisky tasting – or perhaps you’ll even pluck up the courage to try Scotland’s famed and infamous national dish, Haggis?
    But for all this delightful city’s charms, don’t miss your chance to venture out and discover the treasures that wait just outside it. Enjoy the gentle sea breeze in Portobello – the Brighton of the North. Lose yourself in the mystic atmosphere of Rosslyn Chapel, immortalized in Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code.
    Enjoy discovering!
