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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Montenegro Map
Why I Love Montenegro
Choose Montenegro holidays and not far from Ulcinj, close to the Albania border, you will find wooden houses built on stilts overlooking the tranquil Bojana River. Many of these dwellings are restaurants which serve the most amazing fish, and the home-made raki isn’t too bad either! Although if you arrive at the nudist beach you’ve gone too far…

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.
