As we at Original Travel often shout about, it's not just about the destination but also how you get there - 'going on a journey' if you will. As it is International Walking Month we've been thinking about how dishy Levinson Wood is... no sorry we meant the simple pleasure of walking, of…

Travel by Colour: our Top Five Destinations in Latin America

  • Buenos Aires & the Pampas
  • Argentina
  • Guatemala
  • Belize
  • Galapagos Archipelago
  • Costa Rica

Latin America is a region of many characters; football is practically a religion; the steak is the best in the world (and the only vegetarian item you're likely to find on the menu is a mojito) and the jeans are very, very tight. It's also a continent awash with colour - from bright woven…

The World on Sale

  • Argentina
  • Australia
  • Europe
  • Indonesia
  • India
  • Japan
  • South Africa
  • Turkey
  • USA
