Maybe you can’t go home again, but you can re-visit a favorite! About a decade has passed since I last visited this beautiful and well visited part of china. Many, many changes have occurred in that time, and there are an ever growing numbers of tourists, and much to my delight, many are Chinese travelers out to visit and learn more about their own country.   (More)


We spent three heady days in Rioja, enjoying the beautiful rolling landscapes, charming medieval hamlets and exquisite wines of this magnificent region of northern Spain. The towns were small, but each had smells, colours and flavors that overload the senses.   (More)

What a stunning site to behold as you step into the grand hall of the Allure of the Seas! So big, so beautiful! My first concern was how would I ever be able to find my way around here without getting lost, but soon realised that it was not going to be too hard as everything is well indicated with signs and the ever-present staff were always helpful to give us directions when needed.   (More)


We are so fortunate to live in a world so filled with oysters and pearls! One such oyster is the Marquesas Islands, part of the French Polynesia. This part of the world is a tourist paradise, and though many venture straight for Tahiti - fascinating and beautiful in its own right - but if you want to really immerse yourself in the true spirit of these beautiful islands, you must visit some of the smaller islands. These pearls of Polynesia are less inhabited and commercialized but are amazing in their own right, and well worth exploring.    (More)


Just a short a connecting flight from Bali, and travellers can head to an (almost) paradise lost - the island of Flores. Even though it is one of the largest islands in Indonesia, it has been barely touched by industry and tourism. It was the icing on the cake and definitely the best part of the beautiful Indonesian experience.  (More)


Welcome to Jaipur, the ‘Pink City’! The walls of houses in the old ‘Walled City’ are painted with a natural ‘pink-wash’ which gives Jaipur its distinctive nick-name.     (More)

It’s a tiny island -36-square miles-largely undeveloped and dotted with dormant volcanoes shrouded in mist and carpeted in emerald greens flanked with some beautiful beaches.

To know the new revitalized Pittsburgh, especially its throbbing heart, is to see it from Mount Washington and to explore its Strip District. To experience the city, these two tourist attractions are a must and can be done on a one day tour.    (More)


I could hardly believe my good fortune while on a golf road trip in the undulating Usk Valley, in Newport, South Wales. I was about to play my first ever 18-hole course. But this was not just any course. I adjusted my golf cap and made my way out of the five-star Celtic Manor Resort clubhouse to head towards the fairway of what was to be, in mere months, The Twenty Ten Ryder Cup championship course, hosting the greatest players in golf from around the world.     (More)
