For a small island Lanzarote is big on visitor attractions.  Boasting one of the most popular national parks in Spain.  Along with lots of picturesque whitewashed villages, a host of natural wonders and the breathtaking man made attractions of a local artist called Cesar Manrique. The island measures just 38km by 58km – making it easy to circumnavigate and tour.  Whilst both petrol and car hire in Lanzarote are very affordable – with the...

When in Rome … Roam

July 27, 2009

Rome is one of the most memorable cities you will ever visit. Even though most consider Paris to be the most romantic city in the world, I would argue that perhaps that distinction should belong to Rome. If you are planning to visit Rome, I recommend finding accomodation in a very specific area. First, most of what Rome has to offer to tourists, lies within a 3 mile radius so if you are farther...

If “quiet, yet exotic location” is at the top of your wishlist for your dream vacation, time in Seychelles could easily fit the bill. The Seychelles government is very conscience about the land, and all resorts and other...

Arizona – Frozen in Time

Arizona is America’s 6th largest state after Alaska, Texas, California, Montana and New Mexico.

Discover Lanzarote – The Cool Canary Island

This post written and submitted by Nick Ball. The Canary Islands have something of a reputation in the UK as a cheap and cheerful holiday destination. But these seven little specks of Spain located off the coast of Africa are not all birds of a feather. As on Lanzarote – the most easterly link in the chain – tourists are able to enjoy an unspoilt island bursting with unique cultural attractions. Lanzarote was first...

Top Ten Places to Visit in America

The United States of America is a land of great wonders. No where else in the world do you find such an eclectic and wide array of destinations all encompassed within one country.

However, the United States is perhaps the one and only country in the world that offers everything for everyone. Disagree? Here...

But despite the cultural and socio-economic differences between the...

The Beauty and Diversity of Portugal

Portugal is perhaps the only country in western Europe that is unspoiled by commercial tourism, that has not been overrun by shopping malls for tourists, that does not double your dinner check just because you ordered coffee and that does not have tourists flocking its hotels and beaches. So I almost feel guilty writing about Portugal, that I am contributing in some way to letting a secret out. That Portugal is a country with...
