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.

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!

Borneo Map
Why I Love Borneo
Borneo is such a friendly country with fantastic opportunities for wildlife encounters. One of my favourite memories is snorkelling on remote Lankayan Island and happening upon a lone green turtle grazing on the seabed. I managed to 'snorkel-stalk' him for quite some time and he was wholly unperturbed - I felt truly privileged to have experienced this.

Kosovo Map
Why I Love Kosovo
There is so much to see and do in Kosovo – the Decani Monastery, stunning Rugova Gorge, private family wineries, exploring Prizren Old Town and paying your respects at Prekaz village: the list goes on! Don’t forget to have a Kosovan fish banquet (fish prepared in six different ways) in Trofta trout farm near Istog.

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.

Taiwan Map
Why I Love Taiwan
Taiwan is full of surprises, but those who picture it as a sprawling industrial metropolis are in for the biggest surprise. Taiwan’s National Parks boast some of the most stunningly beautiful lakes, waterfalls and forests in Asia, with sweet-smelling cherry blossoms filling the clear mountain air in the spring time.

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.

Slovenia Map
Why I Love Slovenia
I love Slovenia holidays because they truly have it all! In this green and pleasant land you can find scenic lakes, beautiful mountains and attractive coastline all within a couple of hours’ drive of each other. The number of activities you can fit into a short trip here is tremendous.

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.

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.
