    Jardine Majorelle

    Jardine Majorelle - high-fashion cacti in Yves Saint Laurent's private paradise. What a way to start your encounter with Marrakech! Jardin Majorelle was in my top 5 things to do anyway, so it was even better when our hotel's porter gave us complimentary admission tickets to this garden. Anywhere you go in Marrakech, it's worth taking a taxi.

    Bedruthan Steps - Ancient Giants

    It is said that the giant mounds of rock that cross Bedruthan were once used by ancient giants to cross the bay. Actually this was a story made up in the 19th century to attract tourists, but there is no beach more tranquil in all of Cornwall.

    Island in the Sun: Ubud, Bali Island

    Ubud is a remarkable town in the middle of Bali Island. It is a relatively tranquil and peaceful place compared to all other tourist spots in Bali. Being an island and despite of its sandy beaches, there are also scenic mountains and beautiful villages in Bali. Ubud has been Bali's center for fine arts, cultural dance, and music for more than a century ever since it has been discovered by tourists.

    After spending the first 22 years of my life living in york, i realized that i'd never really looked around me, my time was consumed (like so many others) with dashing to and from work, the pub, or a friends house! so i decided it was time to explore the world around me.

    A Stroll through Meiji Jingu, Japan

    When I went to Tokyo this winter, I had the pleasure of going to Meiji Jingu (Meiji Shrine). The place is so magnificent and huge, and you can easily spend a couple of hours just walking around and taking it all in, even if it meant braving the winter cold.
