Puglia, on the heel of Italy's boot, is a destination apart, both culturally and geographically.

The heartland of Sri Lanka contains several World Heritage listed sites, and because they are close together, these can easily be combined in one superb cultural tour.
Original Travel knows the region well, and can recommend the highlights from the best bars in Havana to the best dive sites in the British Virgin Islands, and everything in between.
A holiday to Hanoi, exploring the culture of Vietnam's capital, combines well with a meandering boat tour around the beautiful Halong Bay.

Talk of Christmas already?! Well, it is just 91 short days away. That's a mere 2184 hours to go before we all start gleefully ripping open our presents, over-indulging on the turkey (and possibly the bubbly) and falling asleep in front of the telly, paper crown on head and drooling on our…
Confession alert: I wish I was Danish. Having just returned from the land of blondes, bicycles and salted liquorice (don't ask), it's fair to say I now harbour something akin to evangelist sentiment towards this Scandinavian wonder-country. Oh yes, a long weekend in the capital, Copenhagen,…
Niyama is a luxury wonderland that's perfect for guests who want to be washed up on a desert island castaway-style, but with all the trimmings of a modern and chic hotel. No creature comforts have been spared and there's a distinct cosmopolitan vibe. I spent just three days exploring the…
With all the recent news surrounding the détente between the west and Iran, and the downgrading of Foreign Office Advice, I am chomping at the bit to get back out there…And excited to be offering two small group tours to the country in Spring and Autumn 2016. These will be small groups - so…
It is hard to describe my experiences of Zanzibar in so many words. I remember returning to England and explaining to everyone that I had caught the 'Zanzibar bug'. Baffled, and alarmed that I had managed to catch some kind of horrendous stomach bug on my travels, my family and friends, as…

I set up my 'Eddie Harrop' travel bag brand whilst living out in Saigon inspired by the diverse tropical prints I saw in daily life out there. They are all hand luggage size which makes it easy to jet set around places and are now stocked by the likes of Net-a-Porter.
They say we're often so focused on the destination that we forget about the all-important journey. And let's face it, when you're travelling to Asia in particular, not only is it a long old haul to get there, but the modes of transport when you're there are generally more interesting than…
Nope, we're not making a political commentary on the state of the economy and we've not been listening to too much Cat Stevens (obviously that's not possible). We're talking about the Urban Dictionary definition (which technically pertains to music… but let's not dwell on that): true gems…
Mozambique is something of an underrated gem. While it may not be the first African destination to spring to mind due to its lack of safari options at present, the coast offers some of the best beaches on the continent and is something of an escapist's dream. So why not close your eyes and…
