Don't be afraid to stray from the beaten path in Peru

Anywhere you go in the world, there tends to be a well trodden path created by many tourists who have visited the most famous landmarks over the years. This is no different in Peru. People who take Peru holidays usually start off in Lima, which is a fascinating and culturally rich city in itself, before heading to Cusco, which is also an extremely appealing destination. Then it is on to Machu Picchu, either by train or via the Inca Trail.

Diverse Morocco is the ideal family holiday destination

Selecting a family holiday can be a tricky business if you have children who are still toddling around. As a keen explorer, I had always wanted to visit Morocco in order to scale the picturesque Atlas Mountains but I thought my chances were gone once I started to raise a young family. However, I managed to find a trip that not only gave us the opportunity to head to the fascinating north African country together, but also included a number of child-friendly excursions that would enable us to see various different parts of the nation.

My Tibetan Holiday - a day by day account

Day1/2

Overnight flight to Kathmandu

 

Day 3 Kathmandu

On arrival in Kathmandu we transferred to the lovely Hotel Tibet. After a briefing from the Guide the evening was free so a group of us opted for dinner in a nearby restaurant.

A meal for 6 which included a drink and main course with some shared starters worked out at £28 between us (550 rupees per person). Evening entertainment was experiencing an Earthquake! (8.6 on the Richter scale). The floor moved but fortunately nothing was broken.

Winter Family Holiday in Andorra, one of Europe's Best Kept Secrets

Tucked away in between France and Spain, the tiny principality of Andorra must surely be one of Europe's best kept secrets. The fact the country doesn't even have its own airport could mean the fascinating skiing destination often flies under the radar of less experienced winter sports enthusiasts. However, for those who have sampled the pistes of numerous different locations around the world, Andorra is a stand-out resort.

Is there anyone else booked on the Feluccas and Pharoahs leaving Sat 31st March?

Hi,

Interested in linking up with any other families doing the above trip. I'm a single mum with two children - 15year old daughter and a 9 year old son.

Please make contact if you are going. It would be great to chat.

Regards

Wendy

Going on a Family adventure? Read Rosie's advice

Travel, they say, does two things. It broadens the mind, and it provides memories. Particularly if you are a bit adventurous about it. My favourite moment in a holiday? Arriving. Stepping out of the plane, coach or boat; feeling the sun ( or rain) on my skin, hearing people talking in a different language. Being on another bit of the earth is just such a treat. “It’s magic!” I say to my children. Even hopping on the Eurostar amazes me. Sharing the magic with your children is of course one of the true delights in being a parent.

My Family Saharan Trip

What I really liked about Morocco were the local people. They were always really friendly to you, even when they were trying to sell you things. They always smiled at you and if you spoke the same language or even something close to it, you could have a really nice conversation with them!  We went to this amazing scarf gallery where all these scarves were hanging down and there were beautiful painted pots and tagines.
