Africa’s jumbo hike! Joining a four-day trek to find Uganda’s CAVE elephants – and they are worth every step

Daily Mail | 29 Sep 2018

Today you’ll climb the ladders and cliffs known as the Wall of Death,’ says Peter, chief warden at Mount Elgon’s National Park office in Uganda. ‘Nobody,’ he adds, ‘has yet died on them.’

My daughter, Anya, 22, and I look at one another. It’s too late to turn back. We’ve already flown eight hours to Nairobi, then another 75 minutes to Entebbe.

Tiny, mellow Monteverdi makes a grand break

Daily Mail | 23 Apr 2014

A skinny fellow with a ‘man bob’ and his attractive female companion are sipping prosecco and gazing at an extinct volcano in a valley that has scarcely changed in a century. Nearby, a woman from Cincinnati surveys a medieval building that is being turned into a tiny spa, while an impecunious musician eats a meal made by a chef who worked at one of Giorgio Locatelli’s restaurants.

Some like it hot!

Daily Mail | 9 Apr 2014

Coronado Island in Southern California is the island Disney would have made, had he created one. There’s something unreal in its perfection. It’s palm-fringed, between bay and ocean. And its streets are clean enough to eat off – there are $1,000 fines for littering.

A capital investment

Daily Mail | 3 Sep 2010

When we moved to London’s Kensal Rise in 2003, I hated it. I disparagingly referred to it as ‘The Suburbs’. We’d lived in Holland Park and Kensington. I loved the Royal Borough’s stucco houses, gracious parks, cafes and shops. But we’d sold our duplex in Kensington during the rise of the property market and, sitting smug, waited in a rented house in Holland Park for the market to crash. And waited. And waited.

My feet of endurance

Daily Mail | 12 Sep 2009

WE’VE walked past tiny hamlets and ancient stone farms, stopping only to drink water from a mountain stream. We strode in dappled sunlight through pine forests, then wandered up a hill, alongside verdant fields and cattle wearing cow-bells.

Falling for Ste Foy

Daily Mail | 17 Nov 2007

First, I have a confession to make. I ski in the manner of Bridget Jones: bottom out, legs akimbo, terror on my face. I don’t like heights, I dislike the cold and I find the idea of tearing down a mountain with a pair of skis strapped to my feet deeply unsettling.

In contrast, my husband, Adrian, likes nothing more than to hurtle down a black run at 150 miles an hour with a broad smile on his face and our nine and 12-year-old daughters, Ella and Anya, overtaking him.

I wanted to pass out just to stop the pain, even if it meant dying

Daily Mail | 23 Jan 1993

SHE was snatched off the street, sexually assaulted and mutilated by a convicted killer who left her for dead in a blazing squat.

But only 48 hours after the attacker was jailed for 20 years, she is able to say: ‘I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.’
