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

Ghent, Belgium - Travel Guide

Ghent is a university city, with an interesting history stretching back into the Medieval period. Being only a 30-minute rail journey from Brussels, where we were based, Ghent was an ideal day trip for us. The city centre and its main attractions are close together, easily accessible by foot, making a tour of Ghent quite comfortable within a day.

Zamość, Poland - Travel Guide

Initially we were unaware of the delights of Zamość, but a travel colleague of ours who specialises in visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites brought this delightful Renaissance-styled town to our attention. So, when we were planning our road trip of southern Poland, Zamość was one of the first locations on list. Zamość was founded in the 16th century by the chancellor Jan Zamoysky on the trade route linking western and northern Europe with the Black Sea. Starting from scratch, the town was modelled on the Italian Renaissance theories of what made an ‘ideal city’. The task to create this town was assigned to the famous architect from Padua, Bernando Morando. Thankfully, the town has retained most of its original features and is easily covered on foot by today’s visitors.
