Visit the Royal Albatross Centre on the Otago Peninsula or check out the Little Blue Penguins and Yellow Eyed Penguins at Penguin Place. Stay the night on a farm or enjoy a few nights on Stewart Island and see wild Kiwi Birds in action on the beach.

Quiet Corners of England and Wales

The Spring and the Fall are delightful times to visit this part of the world with less tourists than in July and August. However don’t forget about Winter; Christmas in a country hotel is very special.

Road To Mandalay Myanmar

Highlights are undoubtedly Bagan, Mandalay (and environs) and Mingun. There are few wonderful options for river cruising and more are coming soon. But, we would definitely suggest experiencing it with Belmond aboard the Road to Mandalay.

Wonders of the Adriatic & the Black Sea

This itinerary has so many highlights. Athens in itself is quite spectacular as is Istanbul of course. Ephesus never ceases to amaze with its towering ruins and all the ports on the Black Sea have so much history and countless fascinating stories to tell.
