Memphis, USA - Travel Guide

Memphis is synonymous with Elvis, Rock ’n’ Roll, The Blues, BBQ and Southern hospitality and the city certainly lived up to its reputation. The visit to Graceland was the focus of our trip, as indeed it is for many visitors to Memphis, but we found that this city has so much more to offer. Granted, there are many attractions in Memphis connected with Elvis Pressley, but The King was by no means the only musical star connected with the city. Musicians such as B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis, W.C. Handy, Johnny Cash, Isaac Hayes and… Justin Timberlake(!) have left their imprint on the city that can boast of being the ‘Home of the Blues’ and the ‘Birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll’

Copenhagen, Denmark - Travel Guide

Copenhagen is a fast-developing tourist destination, which has all the canal charm of Amsterdam, but without the hordes of tourists. As we found out, the Danish capital has many beautiful canals and waterways, which are dotted with award-winning restaurants and neo-classical buildings. Often described as “the City of Spires”, we found Copenhagen a cultural and appealing city, which was small enough to traverse on foot, but big enough to boast a whole manner of different and exciting attractions.

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.
