About Accidentally Cultured
Accidentally Cultured is a travel blog with stories and photographs from a diverse range of cultures. The aim is to inspire, amuse and inform the traveller.
The idea for this blog originated from travels with my husband, Paul. As a rule, he never discusses where we are going or why! In general, he just wants to be pointed in the direction of a motorway to get to a nice hotel quickly. Consequently, he has well and truly earned the nick-name, Accidentally Cultured due to his crazy antics and reactions to the ‘culture’ of foreign places.
The desire for a ‘nice hotel’ has meant that we often end up in luxury accommodation indulging in fine dining. So, Accidentally Cultured has also ‘accidentally’ become a luxury travel blog. Firstly, we never budget, but somehow end up in luxury accommodation at very reasonable prices. Above all, we fill our days with a very hectic schedule seeing heaps of art and old towns filled with castles and cathedrals. This results in many ‘accidentally cultured’ moments!
The Via Francigena
In October last year, we travelled along the Via Francigena pilgrimage route from Canterbury to Rome. This cultural route is extraordinary! And, our travels were filled with heaps of accidentally cultured experiences. It was all fun, but our adventures through ‘Twenty Cities in Italy’ were the best!
Carol the Pilgrim
This year, I decided to leave ‘Accidentally Cultured’ at home and head off by my self for some solo travelling. My story begins with a walk in the Swiss countryside near Arnex-sûr-Orbe. So, go to Carol: The Accidental Pilgrim and discover how I became an ‘Accidental Pilgrim’!
