Thank you to everyone at the Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company for a fantastic day learning how to make Cheddar Cheese. I also learned how to store cheddar and what to pair with it. Check out my blog post to find out more. A fascinating day!

I love visiting London any time of year. I'm there at least once a month and never tire of exploring but the best time of all to visit is Christmas. Despite the crowds and sometimes chilly weather it's a fabulous city that's really buzzing at Christmas.

The beach at the fishing village of Tanji is a must for anyway interested in local culture or photography. It's a colourful, chaotic, somewhat smelly, fish market where you can watch the pirogues, the colourful fishing boats, being unloaded and the fish being sold, descaled or smoked.

Whatever country I'm in I love exploring local markets. They're great places for photography. When I visited the market in Banjul, I knew that many people in The Gambia don't like having their photograph taken and, away from the tourist resorts, many don't speak English. So when I arrived I found a guide to go round with me and ask people if it was OK to photograph them. Here are some of the results!

As a female baboon with baby in tow passed by Neill, he glanced my way, grinning from ear to ear before returning his gaze to the troop of baboons that were casually marching by him, just a couple of feet away. I doubt when I suggested we had a second honeymoon, this time in West Africa, he ever imagined he’d be getting quite this close to the wildlife.

I've visited The Gambia, more times than I can remember. The last time was a year ago on honeymoon. It was Neill's first visit and he loved it. We're heading back there soon!

The food scene in Aruba caught me a little by surprise. It wasn’t simply good, it was superb, with a wide range of cultural influences. Their fresh fish was particularly good. While I enjoy seafood, it is rarely my first choice when dining out. However, the fish and seafood on this sun-drenched Caribbean island blew me away, as did the quality of pretty much everything I ate during my week-long stay.

Every year on the 1st March Rodrigues Island celebrates the start of the net fishing season. I spent a fabulous morning watching how the fishermen work as a collective, chasing the fish into a huge net laid out in the shallow lagoon that surrounds the island. You can read all about traditional fishing and 'La Fête du Poisson' on my blog, https://travelwithkat.com/fete-du-poisson-ile-rodrigues/
