Following in footsteps of Romans


Some years back I was a regular visitor to Rome to see friends - including during the hot Summer months when many leave the city for the slightly cooler climate of the country -leaving their apartments and balconies bursting with pot plants - for friends and neighbours to water whilst they are away.



Waiting to be discovered - that’s mysterious Myanmar...

Myanmar is making waves. Regular contributor NATASHA WARCHOLAK goes behind Burma’s bamboo curtain...

MYANMAR, also known as Burma, is in the long-term business of establishing itself as a serious tourist destination. Located in South East Asia on the Andaman Sea and bordering Thailand, India, China, Laos and Bangladesh, it has only been open to tourists for the past four years, after the oppressive political regime had thawed. Since, the number of visitors has been steadily increasing, and now that is possible to apply for a visa online, the tourism industry expects even more favourable prospects for growth.



Road Trip in Cowboy Country

MICHAEL BEATTIE makes an epic road trip into the heart of cowboy country and the American West…

FOUR weeks, 5,000 miles and eight states, this was my longest and most exciting American road trip yet. It was also a journey taking me back into my childhood fascination with cowboys and Indians, and through places with names familiar from the country, blues and rock music which has been the soundtrack of my life.



Hard times for Black Sea beauty

BRIAN OGLE revisits Odessa, Ukraine, feeling the pinch, big-time, from war in the east and economic collapse…

UKRAINE'S beach tourist city on the Black Sea, beautiful tree-lined Odessa, is feeling the pinch - big time! Its residents, restaurateurs and club-owners follow developments in the war in the east - just six hours or so down the road - and try to re-assure themselves that the scourge of Russian-backed separatism could not happen to them.



Truly Unique And Steeped In History

KIRSTY JOHNSTON escaped to the luxurious world of relaxed grandeur and extrodinary personal service at one of Ireland’s top luxury hotels…

IT’S a three and a half hour drive to Lough Eske Castle – quite long for a one-night stay… but so worth it. I was sceptical about driving that distance for just one night – I mean who wants to do a six-hour round trip for a one-night stay? But I am so glad I did.
