What To Do In Penang : The Essential Guide

Chinese Lanterns Penang
In 2009, when I first visited, I hunted in vain for a information on what to do in Penang. There was so little information available then which frustrated me enormously.  I had to use the old school way and carry a heavy book with me. Do you remember those days? Now I wouldn't dream of it. All my travel info is...

Safari Travel Guide To The Kruger National Park

Zebra family
The idea of a safari is a strange concept for me because living in Africa we tend to go at least once a year, but sometimes it's a lot more than that. We don't think of it as a safari but more of a couple of days away in the bush, but to all intents and purposes, it is...

Weekend In Rome : Top 10 Attractions

Piazza Navona
Rome is a city where you are surrounded by stories of the past and I love it! The thought that I could be standing on a spot where Julius Caesar made history, for example, blows my mind. It is impossible to see all the main attractions over a weekend in Rome, but I think that you will be able...

What To Do In Český Krumlov The Fairy Tale Town

Castle Tower in Cesky Krumlov
I had read so much about Cesky Krumlov and not all of it was good. If I had based my decision on what I had read I probably wouldn't have visited. I would have missed seeing a town as pretty as any in a fairy tale. Researching what to do in Cesky Krumlov was not particularly inspiring either, but once I...
