In my previous two posts on Varanasi, I had written on the iconic riverfront of the Ganges and the spectacular twilight ritual of lights - the 'Aarat'...
According to the new regulations this won't be possible anymore because I have visited Iran and Sudan last year. From now on, everyone who has dual citizenship or who has travelled to Iran, Sudan, Iraq and Syria will have to go through a gruelling visa procedure.
Madagascar was the land that time forgot, a mirror into the prehistoric. Its separation from Africa 135 million years ago and India 88 million years later created an unparalleled experiment in biodiversity.
I'm sitting here at my desk with a cup of Yorkshire tea which arrived in the post last week. It seems like time has just zoomed past and landed me here on this island in this adult body.

I only spent two weeks in beautiful Cuba but I came away inspired by what the country has achieved despite, at times, great imposed hardship. It seems to me nations around the world can learn a lot from Cuba, especially its nemesis the US.
Looking down at the veil of early fog floating above the city, I felt energised. It wasn't yet 9:30am, and I had already walked up a steep hill, had a wholesome breakfast, and done tai chi with a Master of the discipline - and all at one of Hong Kong's greenest vantage points, Victoria Peak Garden.

Having recently noticed that almost all the blogs I have been following for the past year or so are predominantly female travel bloggers, I set out in search of the world's best male bloggers to see what sort of adventures they were up to.
I have just come back from a nice if not cold break from Budapest, staying with a very close friend I had not seen for a few years. One night I asked ...
The Romans knew a thing or two about spas. The thermal waters and spa towns they used are still flocked to thousands of years later by people looking for everything from a hardcore health fix to a chance to rejuvenate and relax, and Baden Baden is no exception.
Before arriving at The Mulia, I have to confess I didn't know what to expect, I had heard that it was massive and wondered how a resort so large could pull off a luxury service.
