Our Opinion… Our Travel Team has journeyed extensively around the world, experiencing a whole host of sights and sounds, cultures and traditions, history and architecture. Here is a selection of handpicked favourites, just for you, and some great holidays that will enable you to experience them for yourself… Budapest is a wonderful city of two halves: take a funicular ride to the Castle District of Buda, head to Mátyás Church, an amazing white building that seems to gleam in the sun, its tiled roof is an artwork in itself. From Fisherman’s Bastion there are spectacular views across the roof of the Calvinist Church, to Pest’s Parliament Building, St Stephen’s Basilica and beyond. In Pest, start at the Neo-Gothic Parliament Building that sits right on the river bank, wander past the memorial statue of Imre Nagy, martyr and Prime Minister during the Hungarian revolution; past Ronald Regan’s statue, erected in Liberty Square in honour of his role in helping end communism, and on to St Stephen’s Basilica which is equally as impressive by day as it is by night. The city has many cafes, restaurants and bars in which to enjoy a rest from your city exploration. The Amalfi Coast stretches south from the Bay of Naples and winds its way between the Mediterranean Sea and the cliffs, past stylish towns nestled on improbable slopes, and lemon groves that make the region’s famous tipple, limoncello. It truly is a beautiful drive which offers incredible views and wonderful places to stop and explore. Sorrento lies at the westernmost point of the Sorrentine Peninsula and is a city that saw its heyday in the 18th century when the aristocracy of Europe built holiday villas on its cliff tops. More than 200 years later it still offers echoes of the past, coupled with splendid modern glamour, cobbled streets and tiny squares. Heading east along the southern shore discover Positano, a pretty enclave that has become a magnet for celebrities, and Amalfi itself, set in a suitably dramatic location at the foot of Mount Cerreto and centred around its Romanesque cathedral which watches over Piazza Duomo. Last but not least, South Africa. Often referred to as ‘the world in one country’ it offers an extreme diversity of landscape, people, history and culture and a truly unique travel experience that should be on everyone’s must-do list. A second visit to this amazing country did not disappoint, the safari experience is one of the main reasons for heading to this part of the world - the Kruger National Park is home to an incredible array of animals and birds including the ‘big five’ - game viewing is intensely moving and a successful day will leave you floating, in awe, on cloud nine. Cape Town, with its iconic Table Mountain, is a vibrant city and the perfect base for visiting the beaches, Winelands and the Garden Route.
