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.

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.

Turkmenistan Map
Why I Love Turkmenistan
Turkmenistan may score low on the Democracy Index (two places above North Korea) but it comes high on my list of favourite places to visit. From meeting hospitable locals at the colourful markets, where buying a piece of fruit can turn into an hour’s chat, to camping in the desert by the glowing Darvaza gas crater, this country serves up countless unique experiences.

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.

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.

Vietnam Map
Why I Love Vietnam
The emerald green waters of Halong Bay make a welcome change of pace to Vietnam’s hectic cities. Board a traditional junk boat and cruise between the stunning limestone karsts and isles, enjoying delicious fresh seafood on board and stopping to explore grottos and caves before dropping anchor for the night. A truly idyllic experience during our Vietnam holidays.

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.

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.

Faroe Islands Map
Why I Love Faroe Islands
This remarkable archipelago boasts the highest sea cliffs in the world and for me venturing out in to the North Atlantic Ocean to discover a coastline teeming with birdlife and a significant breeding area for the Atlantic puffin was unforgettable. Faroe Islands holidays offer a unique experience.

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…
