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.

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.

China Map
Why I Love China
The sheer variety of cultures and landscapes in China never fails to enthrall. I love uncovering the history of the ancient dynasties and, such is the vastness and depth of the country, there is always something unexpected to discover. Our China Holidays allow to you enjoy the best of this country in a variety of ways.

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.

Cambodia Map
Why I Love Cambodia
The incredible Khmer temple complex at Angkor is undoubtedly the highlight of any of our Cambodia holidays. The sheer scale of the site combined with the iconic silhouette of the lotus bud-shaped towers and the wonderful bas-relief decoration which has survived since the 12th century make this a very special place to visit.

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.

Mongolia Map
Why I Love Mongolia
I love Mongolia because to watch the sun go down from the top of the whispering sands dunes in the heart of the Gobi Desert is the closest to paradise on earth I have found – no pollution, no noise apart from the gentle whisper of sand shifting in the evening breeze, no traffic just peace, absolute peace.

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.
Staff
Croatia Map
Why I Love Croatia
Few holidays are quite as romantic as Croatia holidays. What could be better than sitting on a quaint restaurant terrace in medieval surroundings, with some delicious fresh seafood and a bottle of lovely wine, while watching a golden sunset over sparkling Adriatic waters?
Staff
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.
