Rome rooftops
Rome is a city where you are surrounded by history and I love it! The thought that I could be standing on a spot where Julius Caesar made history, for example, boggles my mind. It is impossible to see all of what Rome has to offer in a short time, but these are my favourite top 10 Rome attractions.     Top...
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...
Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls is the natural border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. It is also one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World and my Victoria Falls travel guide will show you how to make the most of your visit. The falls are neither the highest, nor the widest, but they are the largest due to the sheer volume of water, estimated...
Sorrento was founded by the Greeks in 600 BC and was an important trading town in medieval times. It is the gateway to the Amalfi Coast and is officially on the Sorrentine Peninsular. This is a charming town with a touch of class that sprawls leisurely along the cliffs, overlooking the ocean, and offers views of Naples and Mt....
Diocletian Palace Split,
The Diocletian Palace in Split is one the highlights and should not be missed when you visit the city. It is a fascinating place to explore. It is also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site as it is one of the best preserved monuments of Roman architecture in the world. What’s the best part of the Diocletian Palace? If...
Bratislava
If you have seen either of the movies “Euro Trip” or “Hostel" you will most definitely have the wrong impression of Bratislava. I can assure you that it is totally safe and nothing at all like it is portrayed.  Bratislava is laid back and the town oozes old world charm. It really should be included in your Eastern European...
Zagreb
Zagreb, Croatia's capital city, is not a destination that is on a travellers “must see” list. Most people head to Croatia to spend time at the coast. It is understandable as the coastal cities are really beautiful. I discovered that the town is easy to get around and you can see the main sights of  Zagreb in one day without too...
Interior of the dome
Istanbul has been on my bucket list for ages. In my mind's eye I conjured up exotic images of the ancient spice route, fragrant food and colourful bazaars. I had heard mixed reports about the political stability in city, but when a friend, who lives there invited me to visit I jumped at the opportunity and besides visiting the...
Dragon
Visiting Marble Mountains was never part of my plan . I was en route from Hue, the Imperial City, to Hoi An. I had seen the Top Gear Vietnam Special where they went over a spectacular road called the Hai Van Pass  and I was keen to follow in their footsteps. The public transport uses a tunnel through the mountain which meant...
Hampi India temple
Hampi is a small town in Karnataka, India. When I was researching it I found not much material available, hence this Hampi travel guide will make your life easier. We travelled by train from Goa to Hospet which is about 12 km from Hampi. Transport is easily available at Hospet to take you to Hampi. The train ride itself is a story...
