Explore Cuba's Heritage Sites

CUBA is one of the world’s fastest growing tourist destinations – and with its diverse mix of vibrant urban nightlife, relaxing beaches and spectacular natural vistas, it’s not difficult to see why.  The country is attracting more visitors than ever before and even the Kardashians gave the island (the largest in the Caribbean) their seal of approval when they drove around capital Havana in a hot pink convertible Cadillac. Havana, the countries capital, with a population of two million,  recently got its first luxury hotel, the Grans Hotel Manzana Kempinski, which occupies an entire city block.

Take A French Alps Winter Ski Break

Where are you having dinner tonight? Instead of trudging home to eat a takeaway in front of the TV, you could be enjoying a four-course meal in your cosy chalet in the French Alps with free-flowing wine (and no washing up after).  After a day on the slopes, you'll have worked up an appetite, so there is nothing more welcoming than a home-cooked meal along with some great conversation to get you in the mood to party.

Enjoy Winter Scandinavian Style

What are you doing this evening? Bet they won't be as memorable as catching a glimpse of the magical Northern Lights after a day cross-country skiing through stunning scenery or after tackling a World Cup slalom in a frozen forest.  Unlike the Alps, Scandinavian countries can add more to your winter experience.  The snow here last for up to six months, and it offers more than a day on the piste, with some amazing adventures.

See the Sunny Side of North America

Your first destination has to be the state road 741, where you’ll wind through Floridian fields and forests to the eerie beauty of Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve. You can get some surreal snaps here, then head back north to the sunny city of Stuart to capture the nearby woodland at sunset. And don’t miss out on the brilliant blue water of The Florida Keys while you’re in town – an amazing sight to behold, dotted with small islands and bursting with marine life.

Like it hot? Visit the Canary Islands

It’s no coincidence that multiple films – including the star wars Han Solo spin-off, have been filmed on the Canary Islands. The Atlantic archipelago’s incredible landscapes are thanks to their volcanic heritage, which are still making waves 60 million years after emerging from the depths of the ocean. In fact, to this day, the most exciting activities across these islands of fire – from lava hikes to black sand beaches and Europe’s highest vineyards – are all volcanically inspired.

Take a Californian Road Trip

Sliced bread. The electric guitar. Non-iron shirts. History is littered with examples of well established ideas that, at a stroke, were tweaked and elevated to a higher plane even when it didn’t seem necessary. The Californian road trip is already iconic. Its promise of louche adventure and itinerant escapism on vanishing point highways and winding coastal routes has long since been immortalised in popular culture and is as quintessentially American as the stars and stripes.
