The Patricia Bech Travel Notes contains a broad variety of travel-related features. The blog includes articles about destinations in the UK and abroad. It also includes some features with travel tips and also shopping bargains!

patricia bech travel notes During the Covid-19 crisis, it has been particularly challenging to write travel articles. Some of the features on the blog consider places that you may like to visit at some point in the future.

Obviously it is very important at the moment to respect the pandemic and the various restrictions that are in place. 

Although coronavirus has disrupted our travel plans and also our ideas for the future, it is still important that we don’t lose our love of travel. The Patricia Bech Travel Notes will continue to include lots of different travel features until we can start moving again.

Even if it means looking back on enjoyable experiences or adapting our idea of a ‘holiday’ in the short term, for those of us who have the travel bug… it will never go!
