Discover Maastricht – a Dutch city break with so much to offer
There is something very special about a European city break. It almost matters not whither you go; splendid town halls, vast and thriving squares, twisty cobbled weinds and ancient churches abound. When exploring Holland, the first, and a very deserving, port of call is the capital, Amsterdam. But most Brits tend to overlook two other of our favourite Dutch cities, save for a dismissive nod to ...
Rannoch Moor – a place where you can lose yourself from the world for a while
It is the long held desire of many a mere mortal to find a place of absolute solitude; a quiet spot where one can truly leave behind all the cares and woes of everyday life.

Chernobyl, site of the world’s worst nuclear disaster
Chernobyl and Pripyat: after the Wormwood nuclear holocaust I’m not really sure what I expected of my trip to Chernobyl. I’d read plenty about the subject for many months before my eventual arrival in the Ukrainian capital Kiev, weighed up time and again the moral and safety issues and ultimately decided to take the plunge.
