Travel Help


I am English but my son and grandchildren live near Bethesda and I have enjoyed many days and longer breaks in Wales. I can help with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the Lleyn Peninsula or Snowdonia.

Ask davidx a question about Wales.


I have spent appreciable time in the highlands and I have family in the Borders Region. I am happy to try to advise on either.

Ask davidx a question about Scotland.

Faroe Islands

I am offering because there are no helpers down for the Faroe Islands. I do not know al the answers but I have been about much of the islands and think I could help those planning a first visit.

Ask davidx a question about Faroe Islands.


I live in Yorkshire and I can help with enquiries about Lancashire and Yorkshire northwards. From younger days I can help with Devon and Cornwall.

Ask davidx a question about England.
