Fall in love with the heart of Ireland

By ANGELA TAGGART

LET me ask you a question - would you consider Athlone a serious option for a short break?

I have to be honest, a trip to the town wasn’t my number one priority last year… But I have now seen the light and a return visit is top of my to-do list.

Truth is, I’ve left my heart in the heart of Ireland. I love the place.

CITY OF ARTISTIC AND CULTURAL MAGNIFICENCE

BY ROBIN NOWACKI

ANTWERP, with 500,000 people, is Belgium’s second largest city after Brussels, and decidedly Flemish in character, though different to Flanders’ other fine historic cities - as for centuries it has also been a major port with a large docklands area, linked to the North Sea by canal.
