Bali, Indonesia

Following in the footsteps of Julia Robersts in the film Eat Pray Love I joined the tourist trail and walked along the rice terraces of Ubud, uncovering the spirituality of  this lush tropical paradise where daily offerings are left at the thousands of temples statues and shrines  across the island.

Kerala, India

Land of the coconut, a lush tropical state in southern India summed up by a road side sign which read God’s Own Country, an Eden-like paradise where you can stay in a house boat known locally as a Kettuvallam once used to transport rice and explore a labyrinth of canals, lakes and lagoons.

Machua Pichu, Peru

I climbed steep stone steps, slippery and glistening from the soft rain. The clouds swathed the mountain tops around and below, the weather teasing, merely a fuzzy outline of grey terraces appeared. I thought optimistically and envisioned the Lost City emerging through the murkiness. And fortunately as I scrambled higher the rain ceased, white clouds parted blue sky materialized and before me the mesmerising ancient site of Machu Picchu was revealed.

A sunny afternoon in Seville, Spain

Sitting on the steps of Plaza de Espana watching a trio of dancers perform the Flamenco, their outlines silhouetted as rays of sunlight spill through an archway foot stomping the noise increasing as the dance intensifies and the audience becomes transfixed.

Lake Titicaca, Peru

Carcassonne, France

I had first heard about Carcassonne when reading reading Labyrinth the first book in the Languedoc trilogy by Kate Mosse (bestselling author not model) intrigued I longed to see the castle for myself. The ancient citadel stands with unobdstructed views across to the snow capped Mountains of the Pyrenees, a stronghold for the past 2,500 years fortified by Gauls, Romans, Visigoths, Moors, Franks, Cathars and others.

The Isles of Scilly, UK

A short plane ride from mainland UK, a leisurely ferry crossing or for the more adventurous a helicopter flight will transport you to a different time and place where life is slower, skies seem endless and the sea shimmers across deserted white sandy beaches.
