Perfect introduction to the true flavours of this exotic island...

On a recent trip to the most easterly of the Caribbean islands, ANDREA McVEIGH and her husband were introduced to the true flavour of Barabdos...

BARBADOS is pleasingly green with a fabulous tropical climate, that much we know. But what surprised me was that I could smell the humidity in the air, making everything seem so fecund, from the palm trees lining the roads to the dazzlingly colourful blooms on the frangipani trees.

This compact island, measuring just 21 miles long and 14 miles wide, is the most easterly of the Caribbean islands. The national language is English and driving is on the left, so it’s easy to see why it’s a popular choice for British and Irish tourists.

It’s quiet, clean, and the home of karaoke and kimonos...

With Hanami - the traditional Japanese custom of enjoying the sakura (cherry blossom) bloom all over Japan - just beginning, NATASHA WARCHOLAK heads to Tokyo, the well-established fashion hub of Japan and cultural hot-spot Kyoto...

GOING TO Japan directly from the UK or Ireland involves crossing two continents: Europe and Asia. This is not a mere city break or short holiday – this is a serious travel commitment, but worth every minute of it.

More haggis, more history - and plenty of Nessie!

The beautiful Ivy cottage on the Aldourie Castle Estate

In the January issue of Northern Ireland Travel News KIRSTY JOHNSTON wrote about her honeymoon castle tour of Scotland. In her second article she visits Aldourie Castle and Estate in Inverness…

IT took us around two and a half hours to get from the Spittal of Glenshee to Aldourie, which was one of the shortest drives of our honeymoon, but also one of the most enjoyable. Driving through the Cairngorms Mountain range is amazing, the scenery is so beautiful that it is worth taking the time to appreciate it.

Spoil yourself before you go!

Stephen and Delia Aston enjoy some champagne VIP style at Dublin Airport

Clubworld Travel’s STEPHEN ASTON experiences VIP service on the ground and in the air…

SOMETIMES the travel experience can be just as important and enjoyable as the time spent at the destination. Combining the VIP service at Dublin Airport with Turkish Airlines' Business Class flights would definitely qualify as just such an experience.

Even the best, most efficiently run airports can be centres of stress and aggravation for weary travellers. If you would like to step out of the crowd and experience a completely relaxed transit through Dublin Airport, then the Collinstown Suite's premium facilities and highly trained courteous staff are an option well worth some serious consideration.
