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.

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!

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.

Czech Republic Map
Why I Love Czech Republic
I enjoy visiting Prague’s Museum of Communism to get a taste of what it was like to live under 40 years of communist rule. Scenes from daily life, school and the factory depict how persuasive Communism was, with an interrogation room created for citizens who dared raise their heads above the parapet.

Russia Map
Why I Love Russia
Visiting both Moscow and St Petersburg is a great start to understanding this complex and intriguing country once described by Churchill as "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma” - so one visit is never enough. Explore Siberian cities on mighty rivers, learn about the battles of Stalingrad in Volgograd and travel the Trans-Siberian to Vladivostok.

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.

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.

South Korea Map
Why I Love South Korea
South Korea Holidays offers a radical change of pace and mood from our other destinations. The cities here are sleek, vibrant, ultra-modern metropolises boasting international cuisine and great shopping opportunities, all wrapped up in a fascinatingly unique culture.

Austria Map
Why I Love Austria
Austria is full of breathtaking scenery and gorgeous towns but Vienna will always hold a special place in my heart. Its streets are an array of splendid museums, grand palaces and wonderful restaurants. Particularly special is the Imperial New Year’s Eve ball – for those with two left feet, opt to have a private waltz lesson prior to the ball to be sure to impress!

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.
