Australia Holiday Idea – Visit Western Australia

First up  it’s Australia… I picked this because it’s just great value for money and the reviews looked pretty good too. 8 days  and includes all manner of cool things to do like a visit to a Super Pit gold mine tour a tree top canopy walk, a surf lesson, wine tasting a visit to Aboriginal legends to name but a few of the interesting and varied topics it covers.

Vietnam Holiday Idea – Hanoi and Halong Bay

Moving up the globe… Vietnam. Who couldn’t just fall in love with the Vietnamese people? Humble, accommodating folk with rich traditions and stunning landscapes. Having been to Halong Bay and Hanoi myself already, this trip was an easy pick to make. Hanoi is an amazing mix of colour and life. Great little coffee bars and eateries and truly alive with a vibrant buzz and energy. Contrast that with the beautiful serene islands and community of  Halong bay and you have a winning contrast of extremes.

Thailand Holiday Idea – Phuket to Koh Phi Phi

Heading west, the next stop is Thailand. I visited Bangkok a few years back on my way home to the UK but didn’t get round to seeing Thailand’s  coastal charms so I’ve gone for a trip that has those aspects as more of a focus. This one sounds just idyllic and could be just the ticket for  folk  looking for 4 days of down time.

 

Sailing Thailand – Phuket to Koh Phi Phi…

Take a Holiday Trip to Kenya and Tanzania

Zooming across the Indian Ocean we hit Kenya with its dramatic Great Rift Valley, mountain highlands and abundant wildlife;  lions, elephants and rhinos. No trip to Africa would be complete with a Safari so on this one. you get to visit the Maasai Mara reserve, known for its annual wildebeest migrations, and Amboseli National Park, offering views of Tanzania’s 5,895m Mt. Kilimanjaro. Awesome. The tour here is great because it offers folks a visit to both countries, so you get to sample both cultures over 10 days and at an affordable price too.

Visit Italy and Live it Local

Going north now and mama mia! We find ourselves in  Italy . I chose this tour as it’s a decent price for a week and you get looked after by a local family with lots of traditional activities and demos. You also get to go to Capri and stop off at Pompeii. Boat rides, island visits, guided walks along the stunning Amalfi coast, with oodles of food and good vino. Sounds like a winner to me.

Ride Bikes and Eat Tapas In Spain

If you did the Italy trip, you’d be pleased to know that you could grab a quick 2 hour snooze on a flight to Spain. I chose this trip because having ate all that pasta and vino, my waistline might have grown somewhat, so a perfect antidote would be this bike ride around Northern Spain. You get a 21-speed mountain bike with helmet and you need to be fairly fit and active (maybe that counts me out)  but it’s a decent price and makes a general change from the standard sit on a beach for 7 days  type holiday.

 

Northern Spain by Bike…

Journey across volcanic landscape to ancient towns where you can recharge with culinary delicacies before winding down on the beaches of the Costa Brava.
