Egypt Nile Cruise
The ancient ruins along the Nile and the Pyramids in Cairo take you back in time thousands of years.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rio de Janeiro. The most beautiful city in the world?
Salvador, The Carnival City, Brazil
Salvador is the Carnival City in Brazil (O.K. it's the other carnival city) Rio de Janeiro is more famous, but Salvador has some wonderful sights and sounds.
Morocco is just a few miles from Spain and Gibraltar, in Europe, the other side of the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea, but culturally so different, with very un-European sights, sounds, tastes and smells. An excellent, photogenic place to visit.
Maharajas' Palace Hotels in India
India has some of the most amazing hotels in the world, many converted from Maharajas' Palaces.
The view from the Taj View Hotel (If you look carefully you might be able to see the Taj Mahal through the smog)
The Pyramids of Mexico
Mexico is a huge and varied country with a lot to interest a tourist. There are many Aztec ruins, both in accessible locations and more remote jungly sites which are very impressive and an excellent subject for any travel photographer.
Here is my article and photographs from my travels around Mexico:

The Rocky Mountaineer Train Journey
Tired of driving? Fancy an experience like the Orient Express, but in the Canadian Rockies? Then take the Rocky Mountaineer from Vancouver.
Here is my article and photographs from my trip on the Rocky Mountaineer:
The Inca Trail in Peru
The classic way to see the wondeful view of Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, is to see it early in the morning, descending the final mountain of the "Inca Trail" after a four day hike through the Peruvian Andes... Alternatively get the train there for a gentler experience.
Here is an articles about my experiences of the Inca Trail and my recommendations:
The spectacular temples (wats) in Bangkok, beautiful hill-tribe villages, jungle trekking and lots of elephants make Thailand a wonderful place to visit for a vactaion and extremely photogenic.
Loire Valley and Brittany, France
I took my old car for a spin through the French countryside.
Tuscany, Umbria and Chianti Regions of Italy
Tuscany is beautiful part of Italy; a favourite destination for British and American tourists. The many picturesque medieval hill towns are relatively close together, separated by beautiful countyside, rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards making the region and neighbouring Umbria ideal for a driving holiday.
Berlin is most famous for the Berlin Wall, which is certainly an interesting and thought provoking thing to see, especially now after the 20th Anniversary of the Wall coming down, but Berlin has a lot to offer in terms of art and history, food and culture. Berlin is also now very popular as a Stag Party and drinking destination, particularly with British visitors.
