    My sister lives in Kent but I have never been to this part. (In fact probably the only places I know in Kent are the route of the National Express Coach from Eltham, South London to Broadstairs!) I would love to broaden my knowledge!

    Oh, the days of walking the area with 30+ teenagers in tow hold such happy memories of teaching Geography in Kent. Losing kids who couldn't read maps, chasing around on a push bike to find them, piggy backing the injured ones....before Health and Safety went mad and Risk Assessment took six weeks of paperwork! Now with mobility problems - probably because of those wonderful days - I would love to enjoy the area as an adult, with another adult. I have been a mystery shopper for twenty years and love being able to write reviews for the company. My journal writing of forty-five years could do with some inspiration too. This would be a perfect excuse to revisit.

    Hello, would love to do this and at the same time treat a friend with severe scoliosis, who uses both a stick and a wheelchair. My father came from East Kent, so I'm familiar with that part of the county: it would be interesting to get to know a different part. I love writing: as part of my last full-time job (before I semi-retired) I used to write articles; flyers and other promotional literature; conference summaries and biographies. All had constraints on number of words and most were up against deadlines! One of my part-time roles currently involves writing mini life-stories, again with constraints on length, but with the objective of capturing the "essence" of the person.

    I would very much like to review this location. I am always looking for suitable place to stay with my 85 years young mum who has increasing mobility problems. This would be a great experience for us both. We have not blogged before, I'm not even sure that mum knows what it is really, but I am sure it is something that we would be very good at as we often sit and review places that we visit.
    Many Thanks

    I used to live in North Kent but haven't been back in many years. Would love to explore new places with my husband and son and a break would be lovely for them having just lost mum-in-law and our beloved cat. I'm a novelist and prolific blogger and have just set up my own travel blog
