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.

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.

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.

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!

Russia Map
Why I Love Russia
Visiting both Moscow and St Petersburg is a great start to understanding this complex and intriguing country once described by Churchill as "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma” - so one visit is never enough. Explore Siberian cities on mighty rivers, learn about the battles of Stalingrad in Volgograd and travel the Trans-Siberian to Vladivostok.

Burma Map
Why I Love Burma
Getting off the tourist trail and getting lost in the back streets of Yangon is a great way to familiarise yourself with the city, and something that I love to do on my Burma holidays. With a few hours to spare, an aimless walk through the city will open your eyes to the rich Burmese culture just as much as the amazing Shwedagon Pagoda can.

Lithuania Map
Why I Love Lithuania
Lithuania is the most southerly of the Baltic States and is often referred to as the ‘Land of Amber’, because for centuries, amber, Lithuania’s precious harvest of the sea has been washed onto the golden beaches of Lithuania’s “Amber Coast”. After a storm join the locals in scouring for pieces of amber that is often washed up from the sea.

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.
