  • A little look inside Provence

    Between Bastille Day and Le Tour, France is really starting to get under our skin! The sunshine, the vineyards, the rolling green hills, the charming villages...and don't even get us started on the food.

  • Top 5 attractions along Route 66

    If you've seen Billy Connolly's new 6-part TV series, "Billy Connolly's Route 66" you'll no doubt be ready to feel the wind in your hair and the tarmac whizzing along under your tyres in the USA.

  • Before the trek: Welcome to Kathmandu

    “Life is like a box of chocolates...you never know what you're gonna get” and needless to say, so is travel.

    Once you set foot in that foreign land - anything can happen. It was like that when I first touched down in Kathmandu. It felt like utter chaos as I left the tranquility of the inner airport. I had been warned, but as a newbie traveller, I still was not prepared.

  • Image of the week: Prague

    As the sun sets on another day in Prague, you can kick back and enjoy a world renowned, locally produced beer and spend the evening people-watching in the square.

    Take our Splendours of Eastern Europe trip and experience the magic of Prague.

  • Empowering women and girls in Sierra Leone

    More than 60 million girls around the world don’t attend school. This is an alarming statistic, but it doesn't have to be this way.

    One Girl focuses on empowering women and girls in Sierra Leone to create change in their communities. It believes that education and economic empowerment are the tools that will help women tackle the issues they face.

    A recent fundraiser was held with the aim of raising enough money to send 150 girls back to school and build a classroom in an overcrowded high school.

  • 11 reasons we are so glad to travel ‘young’

    We get a lot of different reactions when we tell people that we are ‘permanently nomadic’. Most are surprised that we have chosen to do this while we are young (a compliment to us) and especially with children. Many people wait until they are retired to travel and others think travelling with children is too much work. But I say, “Why wait?” 

    Travel is about experiencing. Travel adds richness to life. So below you’ll find reasons and inspiration to travel while you too are still ‘young’.

  • We send the Royals on holiday

    On Saturday 2 June this year, the Queen will celebrate 60 years on the throne. Celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee are happening right across the UK, culminating in a special event this weekend.

    So when all the ceremonies, parties, soirees, processions and concerts wind up, we figure a few members of the Royal Family could do with a holiday.

    See where we think they should go to shake off the shackles of royal duty and let their hair down (well, those of them who still have hair...ahem, William).
