Callejones llenos de polvo. Niños correteando y sorteando a los turistas. El olor a especias que se mete en los pulmones. Una moto por aquí, un burro por allá y los gritos del que quiere vender para ganarse el pan diario. La mezquita como un espejismo. Le parecerá un sueño, una película exótica o un relato de Las mil y una noches, pero …Continue

A bridge crosses the Zambezi River right on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia.Heavy with traffic, the bridge is also used for bungee jumping as well as vantage point for visitors who want to experience the mighty Victoria Falls.
I’ve arrived at the attraction from the Zambezi side, and, after having flagged…Continue
One is the loneliest number, or so the lyrics to a certain song tell us. In the past, the solo traveller has traditionally been an unusual sight, a rarity in a world of travelling couples and families.
However, these days, the so called ‘lonely’ solo traveller can…Continue

Sure the pressures of modern life can be exacting on our system, but a good weekend usually sorts that stress out. To really get away from it all because something in you says "OK, time for a break" means more than getting away from the daily stresses of our lives - its a re-connecting to that part of ourselves which needs recharging. In a space that supports it,…

It’s horrible, of course, the war currently going on in Mali, the desecration of Sufi shrines in Timbuktu, and the disruption of lives in a place where life doesn’t allow much margin for error. …Continue
Many of us have been fortunate enough to have been on safari in Africa - some of us more than once. An African safari is something that should be on everyone's bucket list. I have been fortunate enough to have been on a hot-air balloon over the Masai Mara - truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But all safaris, safari lodges, and games reserves are clearly not all alike. Once in a while you just have to live like a star.
But even if you're not Brad and Angelina, but just have…

Ever since first visiting Morocco more than a dozen years ago, I’ve always marveled that this North African country manages to pack such a whole lot of interesting into such modest dimensions (it’s a little bigger than California, less than a third the size of Quebec, and merely a little over a quarter as spacious as the U.K.).…

Christmas is upon us once again. What is it about Christmas that brings out the inner child in all of us? For billions of people around the world Christmas is the biggest holiday or time-off of the year. The annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ is also one of most popular and busiest times of the year to travel.
