Turkey Map
Why I Love Turkey
I love Turkey holidays because they truly have something for everyone! It’s a country I could go back to time and time again, each time exploring somewhere and something new, and always making exciting discoveries.

Serbia Map
Why I Love Serbia
The Roman site of Viminacium in Serbia never fails to impress me. This grand capital of the ancient Roman province Moesia is located 12 kilometres from Požarevac. They have recently built a small hotel here and for the time team enthusiasts out there you can even work alongside the archaeologists. There is always something new to see on every visit as the excavation is an ongoing process.

Bulgaria Map
Why I Love Bulgaria
Bulgaria is beautiful through and through. Starting from the rugged Black Sea coast you can head in land and discover nothing but breathtaking scenery and magnificent national parks. In Sofia, head to the Central Market to pick up some local bread and cheeses for the perfect picnic.

Slovakia Map
Why I Love Slovakia
Slovakia offers everything from natural and historical beauties to friendly people and delicious food. You can visit the most fascinating places within few days but also spend years here and still discover something new every day. Whenever I visit Bratislava I love to walk its romantic streets and along the banks of the Danube.

Brunei Map
Why I Love Brunei
I love that Brunei has a great range of adventures to enjoy. Embarking on a culinary exploration of the Gadong night market in the capital was a test of my food boundaries and tolerance for sugar - the popular 'teh tarik', local tea heavily sweetened with condensed milk, kept me buzzing for hours! But the highlight was probably travelling to and spending time in rugged Ulu Temburong National Park. Kayaking down the Temborung River and rising early for sunrise from the treetop canopy walkway to the sound of gibbons in the jungle was something I won't ever forget.

Albania Map
Why I Love Albania
Leaving the busy and colourful city of Tirana behind, you can find a country where time has almost stood still, with unspoilt scenery, wild beaches, rocky olive groves, a rich heritage of Roman ruins and really hospitable and friendly people.

Romania Map
Why I Love Romania
I am always enamoured by beautiful Saxony castles and Romania boasts some of the very best in the world. Transylvania, with its famous Bran Castle, is a fascinating area which never fails to charm me. When I’m in Bucharest I love to try and catch a performance at the exquisite Athenaeum.

Uzbekistan Map
Why I Love Uzbekistan
I love Uzbekistan because wandering around the ancient cities of Samarkand, Khiva and Bukhara you are immediately transported to another time when these were the pinnacle of Islamic architecture, culture and learning with trade routes stretching out across the empire of Tamarlane. Although much has been restored the call to prayer from the many minarets still seems to haunt the air and you can imagine the hustle and bustle of the markets crammed with exotic wares.
Staff
Laos Map
Why I Love Laos
I love the atmospheric city of Luang Prabang - Laos’ spiritual heart. The aroma of fresh coffee mixed with delicious spices hangs in the air, whilst the combination of French Colonial architecture and golden-roofed Buddhist temples brings splashes of colour to the streets. The mighty Mekong is the lifeblood of the city – take a boat trip and glide past the villages, monasteries and wats that line the riverbank.

Montenegro Map
Why I Love Montenegro
Choose Montenegro holidays and not far from Ulcinj, close to the Albania border, you will find wooden houses built on stilts overlooking the tranquil Bojana River. Many of these dwellings are restaurants which serve the most amazing fish, and the home-made raki isn’t too bad either! Although if you arrive at the nudist beach you’ve gone too far…
