My favourite place The snow bonneted Rockies in Canada are stunning. The brooding immensity of Uluru in Australia has a haunting atmosphere. The precision of the Egyptian pyramids is mind blowing. The idiosyncratic customs of western Europe are charming. And the home spun beauty that is England is reassuring. But of all the places around the world, my favourite by a country mile, is snuggled up in bed, at home with you.
