Digging for Hidden Gems!
“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” – Lao Tzu
And so here I stand at the starting line, slightly apprehensive but hugely excited to be embarking on the virtual trip of a lifetime. It’s taken me a while to get here. Working my way through the widgets and whatsits of my new WordPress world has caused a few unavoidable delays along the way but running shoes (and my signature high heels for good measure) at the ready and I’m off.
My mission is to share the globe’s hidden gems, partly because don’t we love that “Wow” feeling of having just unearthed somewhere that’s unexpectedly, deliciously, wonderfully somehow special – but also because I wholeheartedly hope to support and champion the people behind these places; often unsung heroes who pour blood, sweat and a bucketload of passion into pursuing and delivering to us their dream, whether that be literally on a plate or in the bijoux bolt-holes that they create for our leisure and our pleasure.
The hidden gems I bring to you are ones that have astounded, amazed, intrigued or caused joy in some small way to those who savour the experience. It may be a hotel or a villa; a restaurant or a bar; a view or a trail; a special service; a unique person; a breathtaking painting; a little known hamlet – in fact anywhere, anything or anyone who makes you go OOHH with that sense of discovery.
As for the rest, they are really the best and I can’t wait to share their stories. Looking forward to digging to find those hidden gems and putting them on the map – where they truly deserve to be.
