My first trip to Central America was so colorful that I have been living in monochrome ever since. I urge anyone with a penchant for pastels, a fetish for fluorescents or a bias for bolds to visit. Here are my most colourful moments from Guatemala and El Salvador.
India has long been a favourite amongst Original Travel staff and clients alike. It's the kind of country that inspires a lifelong affinity and, once people catch the India bug, they tend to go back again and again - there is always more to discover. With that in mind, here are eight reasons…
Imagine this: you're sitting on a sofa 30 feet above the ground with two planks tied to your feet as you casually get hoiked up the side of a snowy mountain. What is this madness? Well, when put like that, skiing does sound a bit… odd. But who can deny the glory of fresh mountain air rushing…
Ah the honeymoon, the perfect break to escape the drama of bringing two families together and to postpone the writing of very vague thank you notes (who did gift that nutri-2000 pasta machine?). Whilst minds automatically race to visions of white sand beaches and swaying palms, we like to…
When most people think of travelling to Italy, they picture the rolling hills of Tuscany, the waterways of Venice and the historic sites of Rome. Few would immediately think of Puglia, on the heel of Italy's boot, and yet it too has its fair share of lovely boutique hotels, beautiful…
Latin America has it all, whether you're meandering through the bustling, colourful markets of the world's highest capital city, La Paz, reclining with a robust malbec in Mendoza, or soaking up the sun on the picture perfect beaches of Brazil. It's a region that has enthralled Original…
Garlinda Birkbeck, professional photographer, made a trip to Iceland organised by Original Travel, in February 2016 with Peter Wilson and Griff RhysJones. They flew to Akureyri, hired a car and drove to Myvatn, where they stayed for a couple of days. Then they made their way around the…
Luxury, style, exquisite landscapes and, of course, delicious food - Italy is unbeatable. From the romantic undulating Tuscan hills evoking images of woody wine cellars and rows of olive trees, to the sensational Amalfi coast, a source of inspiration for Dolce and Gabanna's fantastical…
We may have shamelessly stolen E.M. Forster's title but fear not, we're not embarking upon a literary critique of 20th Century English society (that's next week). We've instead been pondering the very best views from some simply spectacular hotel rooms across the planet… a guaranteed…
Whether you fall into the "adore it" or the "loathe it" camp - and there are none that fall into the gap in-between - bullfighting has always intrigued. Still practiced in many southern Spanish towns, as well as in France, Portugal and in some South American nations, tauromachy, to give the…
It's that time of year again: the time when you realise that Christmas is just 78 short days away but you haven't actually managed to take all of your annual holiday allowance. Something must be done (hint: that's where we come in). Surveys keep coming out claiming that us Brits remain…
Brazil is the antidote to the cliché fly and flop honeymoon. From sleek hotels and stylish beach lifestyle, to countryside fazendas and barefoot beach bliss, the country is a cocktail that shakes and stirs the senses making a trip here exciting at every turn. That is of course if you know…
