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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Indonesia Map
Why I Love Indonesia
Discovering the more remote districts of Bali, the ‘Island of the Gods’, was truly fascinating. Exploring handicrafts in the cultural heart of Ubud and passing through rice paddies and local villages in the interior before heading off to come (almost) face to face with a Komodo dragon were real highlights of my own Indonesian adventure

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.

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.

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.
