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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Brunei Map
Why I Love Brunei
I love that Brunei has a great range of adventures to enjoy. Embarking on a culinary exploration of the Gadong night market in the capital was a test of my food boundaries and tolerance for sugar - the popular 'teh tarik', local tea heavily sweetened with condensed milk, kept me buzzing for hours! But the highlight was probably travelling to and spending time in rugged Ulu Temburong National Park. Kayaking down the Temborung River and rising early for sunrise from the treetop canopy walkway to the sound of gibbons in the jungle was something I won't ever forget.

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.

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.
