So near, and yet, so far, exploring Greece can feel like you’ve travelled half way across the world on your three hour flight. In the news for all the wrong reasons recently, there’s a lot more to Greece than package holidays to party islands.
Scratch the surface and you’ll find incredible ruins, tiny mountain villages, fascinating wildlife and, yes, a party or seven. Hold on to your togas, here’s our Grecian High Five…
Athens has lots to discover...
It’s Ask the Experts time again here on the blog and this week we’re going to be teleporting you to paradise. This week’s question has been sent in by Jonah in Derby and is all about the beautiful islands of Thailand. What’s your question Jonah?
I’m off to Thailand Island Hopping in December what are your trips for the ‘must see’ islands and why? Jonah, Derby.
Ooooh good question! With an abundance of stunning islands to hop between in southern Thailand the decision of where to go will leave you with a big decision to make (although to be fair not exactly a bad decision to make!)
But luckily for you, our two experts Claire and Lucy are at the top of their game, and are here to offer some sound advice. What you saying ladies?

The jewel in the travellers’ crown, Australia has been a favourite destination of ours since the very beginning.

The northeast state of Queensland is a microcosm of the rest of the country, with some of the best attractions and landscapes Australia has to offer. Here’s our pick of the top 5 things you’ll find there…
Enjoy some chill time on the beaches of beautiful Noosa.

But for now, it’s back to this week and Sian from Bath has sent in a question related to her upcoming travels in Southeast Asia. What would you like to know Sian?
Hi, I’m going to Southeast Asia next month for 3 months (Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia), what are your top 5 must do things/places to see while I’m there please? Sian, Bath
Oooooooh great question! Let’s see what advice our Travel Experts Amy and Claire have for you Sian…
Angkor Wat is one of the most spectacular sights in Southeast Asia and both our Experts agree it's not to be missed.
With as many different languages as there are types of beers (probably), this side of Europe is where the party’s at. Soak up the architecture and historic landmarks, explore pretty cobbled streets and squares, and dance until dawn on stunning beaches. What’s not to love?
This buzzing cluster of countries is all too often overlooked when travellers compile their European wishlists. But the region has plenty to offer, and is way more affordable than its neighbours to the west. Check out our tips for a top adventure…
