Whenever it rains here in Turin - and I honestly mean every single time - someone chuckles as they say to me, "You should be used to this, you're from England". But just because we've grown up with near-constant drizzle and...

Unless a money tree sprouts inside my flat pretty soon (a girl can dream) there's no way I can afford a big long-haul trip this year. Instead, my 2018 travel mantra is "cheap and cheerful", and I've decided to master...
