The Perfect Place To Stay in South Africa’s Madikwe Park – Thakadu River Camp

Written by Jaillan Yehia

A safari really is the holiday of a lifetime, so that means staying in just the right spot; and having the perfect safari guide makes that trip into the bush even more memorable. I stayed at Thakadu River Camp, one of the area’s most exclusive lodges.

Postcards From Sunny Bognor Regis

Written by Jaillan Yehia

Bognor Regis. The name may conjur up images of faded seaside grandeur and have connotations of titter-worthyness, sticks of rock, Butlins holiday camps and end-of-the-pier shows, but let’s face it this place is up there in Britain’s collective consciousness, so if you’ve got a spare sunny day off here in Blighty the surprisingly photogenic seaside town is well […]

The Perfect Place to Stay in Salisbury – The Lazy Cow

Written by Jaillan Yehia

For a romantic and cosy rural getaway in a chic all-English, half-timbered setting, The Lazy Cow in Salisbury will make you feel as pampered as that famous massage-treated kobe cattle.  Hotels are often described as being ‘perfect for a relaxing weekend away’. The sentence is thrown around a lot but on closer examination, isn’t always strictly true. What […]

A Dassie a Day

Written by Jaillan Yehia

Despite South Africa being full of world class wildlife and impressive Big 5 game, there’s one little animal that really wins your heart against the odds: the dassie. They look like a guinea pig, their name means little badger, and improbably, they are the closest living relative of the elephant,  but these funny, furry little creatures pop […]

The Perfect Place to Stay in San Ramon, Costa Rica – Casa Amanecer

Written by Jaillan Yehia

When deciding where to stay before flying out of San Jose airport following a trip through Nicaragua and Costa Rica, I considered taking in Costa Rica’s capital city, and like many travellers, I decided that with just an overnight visit I couldn’t do it justice. Instead I plumped for a relaxing night in the small […]

Why the Day Trip is Travel’s Answer to the Power Nap

Written by Jaillan Yehia

The humble day trip, whether at home or abroad, has untold powers to invigorate and inspire us: it offers us all the joys and refreshment of a new place compacted down into a short time frame, and without any of the stresses and hassles of organising a full blown holiday. In short, the day trip is the travel equivalent of a power nap.

Winchelsea: The Blueprint for New York?

Written by Jaillan Yehia

Winchelsea is a tiny but fascinating East Sussex town overlooking a wide stretch of shingle beach, a stone’s throw from its better-known Ancient Town counterpart of Rye. It’s also a town which, some say, inspired the blueprints for the city of New York.

Dungeness Details

Written by Jaillan Yehia

Inhospitable, desolate, wild, windswept: these words come up time and time again when describing Dungeness, and for those seeking a sense of the surreal, there’s no place quite like Kent’s southernmost tip.

Learning To Love the Bicycle in Laos

There’s something about travel that unlocks your imagination, releases your inner child and makes you feel that anything is possible.  If you want to learn to ride a bicycle – either for the first time or all over again –  the serene and stunning surroundings of Laos are the perfect place to embrace the ‘two-wheels […]

5 Ways to Have a Franc-free Few Hours in Zurich – A Weekend Break to The Swiss City

Written by Jaillan Yehia

When asked to think up the perfect European city break destination, I doubt many people would name Zürich, but as I discovered there’s a lot to love about this pretty little Swiss city. Fresh mountain air, a medieval old town, world-class art and cafe culture, all with a stylish urban twist: for the seasoned city-breaker Zürich is an […]

Volcanic Ash Tags – The Icelandic Volcano in Images

Written by Jaillan Yehia

The Icelandic Ash Cloud first anniversary caused me to dig out some photography to share with you.  This time last year I was just back from a well-timed visit to Iceland, fresh from scooping up particles spewed out by Eyjafjallajokull that some enterprising souvenir shops in Reykjavik were actually selling for a princely sum. The Icelandic volcano […]
