Bhutan Map
Why I Love Bhutan
Driving over the high ridge of the Cheli La and dropping down into the remote Haa Valley offers such stunning views that I couldn't help but fall in love with this beautiful and friendly country. Wandering the streets of the 'cosmopolitan' capital of Thimpu, where the modern world meets traditional Bhutanese culture, is a great introduction to the country but heading into the rugged mountain terrain is where the real fun begins. Passing high level chortens and seeing bright splashes of colour from collections of weather-beaten prayer flags dotting the mountain passes, these journeys alone provided me with memories to cherish forever.

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.

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

Macedonia Map
Why I Love Macedonia
Macedonia is a tranquil country and the perfect place to unwind and reflect. Ohrid is a particularly peaceful town and when I am there I enjoy nothing more than just sitting back on its scenic lakeshores and forgetting about the rest of the world.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Belarus Map
Why I Love Belarus
The history of the Soviet Union has always intrigued me and travelling to Belarus is like stepping back in time to a bygone era. Society here is incredibly safe and well-ordered; I always feel extremely welcomed and comfortable in Belarus.

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.
