For my most recent trip I did Peregrine’s Colours of Rajasthan which ticked all the usual boxes of the mighty Taj, the Red Fort and the pink city, Jaipur. But what I loved most was the small towns that took us right off the beaten track.
Today is International Women's Day and to celebrate this year's theme Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures we asked the ladies in the Peregrine office a couple of questions about some of their most inspiring journeys. From trekking to Everest to road tripping through the USA the Peregrine girls are a very well-travelled bunch!
What’s been your most adventurous holiday to date?
When great wine producing countries spring to mind, you'll probably start with France and Italy. But what about South America? Home to some fantastic wines, you can be sure of distinctive flavours and excellent food to match.
Wine tourism is taking hold in South America, and and wine harvests generally take place in March and April. Why not plan a trip, where you can combine your many great loves in one place?

The ice is nice, but it’s the penguins that make the party in Antarctica.
Gentoo Penguins in particular, a variety found in the warmer extents of Antarctica’s icy edges, kill time on land by stealing pebbles from each other and starting new arguments with their neighbours. Pebbles and stones are the main construction materials for building a nest, but it takes a brave penguin to wander through the rookery and grab a small rock.
