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.

Albania Map
Why I Love Albania
Leaving the busy and colourful city of Tirana behind, you can find a country where time has almost stood still, with unspoilt scenery, wild beaches, rocky olive groves, a rich heritage of Roman ruins and really hospitable and friendly people.

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.

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.

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.

Slovakia Map
Why I Love Slovakia
Slovakia offers everything from natural and historical beauties to friendly people and delicious food. You can visit the most fascinating places within few days but also spend years here and still discover something new every day. Whenever I visit Bratislava I love to walk its romantic streets and along the banks of the Danube.

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.

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.

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.
Staff
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.
