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

Bosnia-Herzegovina Map
I loved my visit to Blagaj, a lovely village at the source of the River Buna. The River Buna flows out of a 200m cliff and beside this gurgling water is the impressive Tekke, a Dervish Monastery. Even I managed the energetic climb to Stepjan Grad, a ruined fortress overlooking the village, for splendid sunset views.

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.

North Korea Map
Why I Love North Korea
Holidays to North Korea are like visiting a different universe. I’ve visited several times over the years but it never fails to surprise me in different ways, from the exceedingly friendly people to the beautiful sights, North Korea has to be seen to be believed.

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.

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.

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.

Hungary Map
Why I Love Hungary
I love Hungary because you can combine the faded romance of its capital city with the beautiful countryside outside it. For a taste of local life, I loved playing chess at the Turkish era thermal baths in Budapest.

Germany Map
Why I Love Germany
For me, Berlin makes the perfect city break destination – the restaurants and cafes in the fashionable Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg neighbourhoods are the ideal place to watch the world go by after a busy day of sightseeing.

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.
