Why you should see Iceland in summer
Why you should see Iceland in summer Iceland’s spectacular landscapes look even more impressive when they’ve shaken off their winter coat. As the snow melts you’ll find volcanic hills with bubbling pools of mud, glacial rivers and breathtakingly beautiful fjords. In the north east, where the country touches the Artic Circle, you can horse ride beneath the Midnight Sun, while summer is also the time to see Iceland’s famous puffins.
Trans-Siberian Travels
Trans-Siberian Travels Follow in the footsteps of Joanna Lumley and travel the same route that took her from Beijing to Moscow in her ITV special 'Joanna Lumley's Trans-Siberian Adventure.' Witness ever-changing landscapes of Russia, Mongolia and China roll by from your cabin and make regular stops to discover the highlights of this classic route. Travel in style on the Tsar's Gold and Imperial trains.

Armenia Map
Why I Love Armenia
On our Armenia tours we can often arrange meals in private houses, where you can feast on stuffed aubergines and tomatoes, fresh cheese with coriander leaves, dolmas with yoghurt, green beans, walnuts, sweet desserts and delicious dark Armenian coffee accompanied by Armenian flatbread called lavash.

Mongolia Map
Why I Love Mongolia
I love Mongolia because to watch the sun go down from the top of the whispering sands dunes in the heart of the Gobi Desert is the closest to paradise on earth I have found – no pollution, no noise apart from the gentle whisper of sand shifting in the evening breeze, no traffic just peace, absolute peace.

Poland Map
Why I Love Poland
Poland is an extremely spirited country and there is a real sense of community and pride amongst its people, perhaps best exemplified by the meticulously rebuilt Old Town in Warsaw which was devastated in World War II. This positive, forward-looking attitude translates into the warm welcome that I find on every visit.

Moldova Map
Why I Love Moldova
What’s not to love about a country known for its prolific wine growing! A country that has underground wine cities and nearly everyone in the countryside makes their own wine at home. Visit Cricova Winery with its 120 kilometre subterranean tunnels and avenues named “Strada Sauvignon” or “Strada Cabernet” or Mileştii Mici Winery with its Soviet styled tasting hall. Elegant wine tasting can be experienced at Pucari Estate.

Lithuania Map
Why I Love Lithuania
Lithuania is the most southerly of the Baltic States and is often referred to as the ‘Land of Amber’, because for centuries, amber, Lithuania’s precious harvest of the sea has been washed onto the golden beaches of Lithuania’s “Amber Coast”. After a storm join the locals in scouring for pieces of amber that is often washed up from the sea.

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.

Indonesia Map
Why I Love Indonesia
Discovering the more remote districts of Bali, the ‘Island of the Gods’, was truly fascinating. Exploring handicrafts in the cultural heart of Ubud and passing through rice paddies and local villages in the interior before heading off to come (almost) face to face with a Komodo dragon were real highlights of my own Indonesian adventure

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.

Ukraine Map
Why I Love Ukraine
Having spent over three years living in Kiev, Ukraine is my second home. It has everything for a memorable holiday – vibrant cities, incredible architecture, fabulous beaches, wonderful mountain scenery and great vodka!

Greenland Map
Why I Love Greenland
From Ilulissat, travel by boat to the edge of the spectacular Eqi glacier and if you are fortunate you may see and hear the immense crashing sound as icebergs are calved from the glacier. It is a surreal sight to sit basking in the Arctic sun, sipping an ice-cold Greenlandic beer watching icebergs glide past houses, along the fjords and out to sea.
