Serbia Map
Why I Love Serbia
The Roman site of Viminacium in Serbia never fails to impress me. This grand capital of the ancient Roman province Moesia is located 12 kilometres from Požarevac. They have recently built a small hotel here and for the time team enthusiasts out there you can even work alongside the archaeologists. There is always something new to see on every visit as the excavation is an ongoing process.

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.

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!

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.

Kosovo Map
Why I Love Kosovo
There is so much to see and do in Kosovo – the Decani Monastery, stunning Rugova Gorge, private family wineries, exploring Prizren Old Town and paying your respects at Prekaz village: the list goes on! Don’t forget to have a Kosovan fish banquet (fish prepared in six different ways) in Trofta trout farm near Istog.

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.

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.

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…
