Drive California

You've probably got a mental picture of California. Maybe it's rows of palm trees against a perfect, azure sky. Maybe it's the Hollywood sign, Mullholland Drive twisting into the night above a million twinkling lights, the mansions of Beverly Hills. Maybe it's the Golden Gate Bridge, the precipitous streets of San Francisco, the vast, glittering Pacific Ocean. These things are all California icons, and you should definitely go and see them, but there's a lot more in between that you miss while cruising at 35,000 feet. California is huge and varied: dramatic mountains, sun-baked vineyards, blissful beaches. To really get to know the Golden State, you need to be in a car. Forget internal flights with their dull check-ins and romance-free shuttle buses, and get behind the wheel. Here are three great road trips that we suggest. Read more about Drive California

Drive The Dutch Flower Route

Amazingly, it’s just a four-hour drive on the A4 through Antwerp and north into the Netherlands to get to the start of the famous Dutch flower route. Flowers have long been the stuff of romantic gestures, but blooms are a big deal in the Netherlands, the country which has dominated the global flower trade since tulip mania caused the world’s first commodity boom here during the Dutch Golden Age.

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.
