The Fun O'The Fayre In a tranquil English village, with pretty stone-built cottages huddled together along a murmuring river, I had some time to take a wander around.

All these names have the same origin if you go back far... Read more >>>
Sailing in the Greek isles... or Turkey’s Turquoise Coast? "Sailing the Greek isles..." - a phrase packed with romance and imagery. But Greece has been facing some stiff competition these past few years from next door neighbor Turkey - a relative newbie to tourism. They are so close together, and yet so radically different - which would you pick, if you're considering sailing in this part of... Read more >>>
River cruise down Danube a unique way to see Budapest On a warm spring evening when the sun was shining bright and the breeze was blowing cold, I made a brisk walk through Vigado Square and got to the ferry terminal on the Pest side in Budapest. The harbor is lined with boats, each promising visitors unique sights of the city though their glass windows. An evening cruise... Read more >>>
Curacao: Kura Hulanda Museum And Hotel Located just off the northern coast of Venezuela, Curacao (pronounced "kur-ah-sow") is part of the ABC Islands chain - Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao - which in turn is part of the Netherlands.
