From stunning Sydney harbour to backpacking in the Blue Mountains

NIGEL HEATH joins a party of back packers on a memorable trip to the Blue Mountains…

THE lady in the Sydney tourist office listened attentively as we explained that 'yes' we wanted to go to the nearby Blue Mountains but 'no' we did not want to go on a coach tour around the various stunning view points.



A luxury hotel and a good wine!

After a ‘wine-themed’ hotel break in Berkshire ANDREA McVEIGH and her husband were left with only one question - which wine would go best with toast?

WHEN two of my favourite things in life - a luxury hotel and a good wine - come together in one package, I was sold. They had me at just the mention of wine, to be honest, but The Vineyard Hotel near Newbury, Berkshire, has so much more to offer. A spa, rated by the Good Spa Guide as one of the very best in the UK; a destination restaurant presided over by award-winning chef Daniel Galmiche; an impressive art collection and a beautiful location, to name but a few.



Visiting the ‘real capital’ of Ireland!

Dublin thinks it’s the capital of the Republic, but COLIN McALPIN discovers the truth as he travels south to Cork…

IT may be third in size after Dublin and Belfast but Corkonians will have it no other way: they live in the "real capital" and since it's such a terrific city in every regard no visitor would even think of disagreeing.



New Anthem will rock you...

NI Travel News’ PATRIC BAIRD attended the christening of Anthem of the Seas recently…

ROYAL Caribbean has a brand new addition to its 23-strong fleet – the 168,666-ton Anthem of the Seas was officially christened at Southampton on April 20 before more than 1000 specially-invited guests and I was luckily enough to be amongst their number, prior to its maiden voyage on April 22.



Northern Lights star attraction of Norway cruise

Contributor PATRIC BAIRD crosses another popular tourist attraction off his bucket list…

MOST people are familiar with the term ‘Bucket List’ – a note of all of those things we want to see or do before we die. As a travel writer, I have been very fortunate in having a job which allows me to travel the world, experiencing many of its man-made attractions and natural features which appear on most people’s must-see lists. However, there was one particular sight which had eluded me while I was busy marvelling at the Easter Island statues, enjoying a pizza in Naples and walking along the Great Wall of China. I had never seen the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, nature’s very own light show which appears in high latitudes at certain times of the year.
