Why you should see Iceland in summer
Why you should see Iceland in summer Iceland’s spectacular landscapes look even more impressive when they’ve shaken off their winter coat. As the snow melts you’ll find volcanic hills with bubbling pools of mud, glacial rivers and breathtakingly beautiful fjords. In the north east, where the country touches the Artic Circle, you can horse ride beneath the Midnight Sun, while summer is also the time to see Iceland’s famous puffins.
Trans-Siberian Travels
Trans-Siberian Travels Follow in the footsteps of Joanna Lumley and travel the same route that took her from Beijing to Moscow in her ITV special 'Joanna Lumley's Trans-Siberian Adventure.' Witness ever-changing landscapes of Russia, Mongolia and China roll by from your cabin and make regular stops to discover the highlights of this classic route. Travel in style on the Tsar's Gold and Imperial trains.
Papua New Guinea

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

Iceland Map
Why I Love Iceland
Leaving London on a Friday lunch time, I love the fact that I can be relaxing in the Blue Lagoon by late afternoon, with a long weekend in Reykjavík in front of me. At the remote Hotel Rangá, it’s easy to feel a world away from home when you’re standing in front of Mt Hekla watching the mesmerising northern lights dance overhead.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

Greenland Map
Why I Love Greenland
From Ilulissat, travel by boat to the edge of the spectacular Eqi glacier and if you are fortunate you may see and hear the immense crashing sound as icebergs are calved from the glacier. It is a surreal sight to sit basking in the Arctic sun, sipping an ice-cold Greenlandic beer watching icebergs glide past houses, along the fjords and out to sea.

Moldova Map
Why I Love Moldova
What’s not to love about a country known for its prolific wine growing! A country that has underground wine cities and nearly everyone in the countryside makes their own wine at home. Visit Cricova Winery with its 120 kilometre subterranean tunnels and avenues named “Strada Sauvignon” or “Strada Cabernet” or Mileştii Mici Winery with its Soviet styled tasting hall. Elegant wine tasting can be experienced at Pucari Estate.

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.
