Burma (Myanmar) Map
Why I Love Burma (Myanmar)
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.

Cambodia Map
Why I Love Cambodia
The incredible Khmer temple complex at Angkor is undoubtedly the highlight of any of our Cambodia holidays. The sheer scale of the site combined with the iconic silhouette of the lotus bud-shaped towers and the wonderful bas-relief decoration which has survived since the 12th century make this a very special place to visit.

Croatia Map
Why I Love Croatia
Few holidays are quite as romantic as Croatia holidays. What could be better than sitting on a quaint restaurant terrace in medieval surroundings, with some delicious fresh seafood and a bottle of lovely wine, while watching a golden sunset over sparkling Adriatic waters?

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cuba Map
Why I Love Cuba
I loved watching clapped-out 1950s Cadillacs cruising past crumbling colonial buildings in Havana. My favourite spot to watch the world go by is the Malecón, the broad esplanade stretching 4 miles along the coast, where the buildings tell a 50 year history from end to end, and locals come to socialise or fish from the sea wall.
