Isle of Skye, Scotland – Travel Guide

The Isle of Skye is one of the most popular visitor destinations in Scotland, and is probably its most visited island, especially since a bridge connecting the island to the mainland was opened in 1995. Easier access to Skye has led to its own problems, causing a strain on the infrastructure, especially with regards to accommodation, which books out fast during the summer months. Getting around this relatively small island is fairly easy if you have access to a car or if you are on a coach tour, but don’t expect to see its major attractions if you want to visit using public transport.

Przemśyl, Poland – Travel Guide

Before researching our latest trip to Poland, we must admit that we had never heard of Przemśyl, let alone tried to pronounce its name. Przemśyl is a small, but historically significant, city of almost 70,000 inhabitants in south-eastern Poland. It is the second-oldest city in southern Poland (after Kraków) and appears to date from as early as the 8th century. Przemyśl is in an ideal geographic location, laying in an area connecting mountains and lowlands known as the Przemyśl Gate, with open lines of transportation, and fertile soil. It also lies on the navigable San River. Important trade routes that connected Central and Eastern Europe passed through Przemyśl and ensured the city's importance and prosperity.

Wester Ross, Scotland – Travel Guide

Wester Ross is a stunning area in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland, from the small town of Ullapool in the north, down to the hamlet of Dornie in the south. The land in between is a mix of mountains, sandy beaches and castles, with the North Coast 500 road running straight through this region. Wester Ross simply takes our breath away and we would highly recommend travellers to Scotland to consider hiring a car and exploring this amazing landscape.

Lower Manhattan – Travel Guide

Manhattan is a relatively small island, but is absolutely packed with interesting attractions and sites. So how does the traveller tackle this sightseeing Mecca? We found the best way is to split the island geographically and concentrate on each area in turn

Sutherland, Scotland – Travel Guide

Sutherland is the most North Westerly area of Scotland and this sparsely populated historic county has arguably the most dramatic and awe-inspiring landscape in the whole of Europe. This area, once settled by the Vikings, is difficult for the visitor to traverse, with few roads, of which are often single lane at times. However, over the years, we have persevered and travelled throughout this stunning region of the Highlands and we have been well rewarded
