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.



Land of Spices and Coconut Trees

Contributor NIGEL HEATH overcame initial doubts to enjoy a fabulous holiday in South India…

DON’T let the fear of 'Delhi Belly' or any other vague concerns ever put you off visiting India.

This huge and exotic subcontinent, once the jewel in the crown of the British Empire and the subject of so many romantic tales, may be somewhere you have often thought one really should visit.



In Flanders Fields the poppies blow...


WE MIGHT at times consider our lives here in the UK in second decade of the 21st century tough and stressful - however consider the comparison with your average Briton a century ago.

When the German Army invaded Belgium in 1914, resulting in Britain, France, and others to coming to the aid of the Belgians - the First World War had begun. This led to millions of men throughout the UK leaving their hard, low-waged work in mines, factories, and fields, to enlist in Kitchener’s Army, heading for what would become the killing fields of the Western Front.



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.
