I first made it to the Canaries in 2001 and ended up in Fuerteventura. After a little nosing around we gravitated towards a quiet fishing village which seemed quite different to the rest of the island, retaining a rustic charm and not dominated by tourism. Fifteen years on, very little has changed in El Cotillo and it remains a real gem of a place if you like spectacular nature, scenery, a small village with a few restaurants and bars and plenty of sunshine.

Braunston, the village I moved to in 2008 on the Northamptonshire and Warwickshire borders is full of surprises and delights, at all times of year..

I vaguely remember visiting Mudeford on a family holiday as a three or four year old but don't remember much beyond a muddy beach (though this recollection may have become distorted in time and perhaps tainted by the place name associations).

"Sad, isn't it? Anything good eventually gets "discovered" and then the trendies descend in hordes, impose their lifestyles, and then wonder what went wrong.” Do you agree with this Guardian reader?

Sunday's Observer piece on Lisbon as the potential new tech capital is now approaching 30, 000 shares. Next week’s Web Summit event has nearly 50, 000 attendees and costs a modest €1, 245 at the cheapest delegate rate. Clearly, something is going on here.
