Paradise is here on Earth, brightly coloured and full of cats, butterflies and friendly parrots. Ladies and gentlemen – Key West!
Probably the most amazing holiday I’ve ever been on- heaven for a cat lover with a passion for old American houses. The food was excellent and the caribbean vibe was made all the more exciting by the wildlife wandering free in the streets. There were strutting cockerels and swaggering iguanas, a holiday of surprises and beautiful sunsets. It felt like being in an old movie with it’s waving palms and ceiling fans and there was many a sun-bleached wooden porch where I could spend my days lazing in the warm evening breeze.
Leaving was quite an emotional experience, but I’ll be back one day to play with Hemingway’s six-toed cats and sip some rum at sun down.

Here’s a travelogue of a crazy vacation in the City by the Bay. My favourite place on Earth, I’m never happier than when I’m tearing about trying to see everything at once. Such a handsome place, bursting with character and charm, inspirational and romantic. And if you’ve never seen a zebra crossing turn into a coy carp then you’ve never been to The Haight…
