Though somewhat inconvenient, becoming a castaway needn’t be a harrowing experience. Heed the lessons of Alexander Selkirk, a sailor who survived alone on an islet for over four years. Jack Palfrey retells his tale.
The roaring winds of the South Pacific buffer the bow of the Duke, a hardy British frigate, moored near the craggy island of Más a Tierra.
Aboard, the ship’s captain and experienced seahand, Woodes Rogers, awaits news from the small landing party that have gone ashore, investigating bright lights they believe to be French sailors stocking up on supplies.
Rogers whiles away the idle hours scribbling in his diary, a soiled manuscript that will go on to be published in England under the title: A Cruising Voyage Around the World.
“February 2, 1709: We are all convinc’d the light is on the shore, and design to make our ships ready to engage, believeing them to be French ships at anchor,” he wrote.
As the sun bows to kiss the Pacific Ocean, Rogers becomes worried. Fearing his men have been captured, he commands a signal be raised for the crew
Southeast France attracts many visitors looking for sun, palms, beaches and a little taste of happiness throughout the year, but this idyllic part of France also possesses many charming places and monuments, as well as stunning casinos.
For an unforgettable stay in the French Riviera, let us be your guide as we head from east to west to discover some of the area’s must-see cities.
We begin with the most famous destination of the area: Monaco. The world-renowned Principality of Monaco is the perfect mix of luxury, beauty and history. This microstate, run by the Grimaldi Royal Family, houses amazing places such as the Oceanographic Museum and the Harbour.
The Place du Casino square is the centre of the city and the best spot to admire the beauty and luxury of SBM properties like the Monte-Carlo Casino or the Café de Paris Casino. These prestigious venues attract wealthy clients all year round. If you are a fan of luxurious cars and limousines, be sure to visit.
Having dreamt about all this sumptuousness, it is time to head to our second lovely destination:
Some of England’s oldest churches are now offering overnight stays. Our scribe, Arielle Witter, gives us the lowdown on “champing”.
Could camping in a church, affectionately known as “champing”, be one of 2016’s more unusual travel trends? The Churches Conservation Trust certainly hopes so. Inspired by peer-to-peer travel sites such as Airbnb, the organisation has opened up some of England’s oldest churches to overnight guests, with profits going towards the maintenance of these ancient places of worship.
The trust, which looks after 347 churches across England, successfully trialled “champing” last year and has so far opened 10 of its churches to travellers – with more listings in the pipeline.
Now we know what you’re thinking: what’s the policy on, you know, getting intimate in the house of God? Well, though the trust’s churches, which are no longer used for regular worship, are still considered holy, guests are able to get up to what their conscience permits.
However, some guests may be too spooked for romance: though beautiful, these churches are definitely some of the eeriest and most eccentric places to stay in
John Malathronas retells the story of Ireland’s Rebecca O’Laoire, who went from dancing for pesos on Plaza Dorrego to become one of the best tango artistes in Argentina.
With the apprehension of the first-timer, I step into the dimly lit milonga (tango club) on Avenida Cordoba. Earlier my companion Mariana had struggled to teach me the cuadrado (the basic steps), but for a novice, I didn’t do too badly.
“You are not stiff,” she’d said approvingly, “the British dance like planks.”
Fruto Dulce is more of a seductive cocoon than a swanky lounge and I’m here to complete my schooling in Argentina’s national dance.
Entry is a paltry 60 pesos (£2.85) and drinks are as cheap, although patrons are not interested in quaffing alcohol. The tango is the ultimate intimate entwine with the opposite sex and boozy breath can kill the rapport.
What’s more, the owner is a gringa (female foreigner).
Arriving from Dublin in 2009, Rebecca is a nimble, jovial blonde whose sparkling smile could light up the darkest pampas night.
“I arrived on a six-month working visa to improve my Spanish and to
While chilly winter days get most people dreaming about an escape somewhere hot, for adrenaline junkies in the UK the darker nights and lower temperatures only mean one thing; snow!
The Scottish Cairngorms are the only place to head after the first covering of snow. While the Cairngorms provide stunning walking scenery throughout the year, it’s during the winter that the mountain range truly comes alive and is the best time to visit.

So, whether you spend a few days or even a week in the Cairngorms, you definitely will not be bored! Snowboarders are also well-catered for in Scotland with a fully maintained snowboard park available throughout the ski season from December to April every year. For those of you braving the snow for the first time, learning in Scotland with English tuition is a great way to build confidence and nail the basic skills. If you visit in mid January make the most of the celebrations for World Snow

Just two and a half hours from London, Bridgend County offers great surfing, award-winning beaches, dramatic landscapes and peak-to-beach cycling.
It’s as much a draw for savvy holidaymakers as it is for television and film crews, with shows like Doctor Who and Torchwood scouting out captivating locations.
The extensive coast and Victorian promenade of Porthcawl are easy to reach, yet Bridgend County still remains a bit of a secret.
Here are five of the best things to see and do in Bridgend County:
Surf some of the best breaks in Britain
It may not be as well known as New Quay or Gower, but Bridgend County has some of the hottest surf breaks in the country, so much so that South African pro surfer Ingemar Cressey recently opened Cressey’s Surf Academy here.
Porthcawl Surf School and Adventures Wales also offer surf lessons throughout the year, while events and festivals extend the surf vibe into the county’s bustling towns.
We recently sent Jack Palfrey to Porthcawl to find out more.

The Wales Coast Path is a coastal trail that stretches right around
Cruise holidays offer many experiences that are unique and often life-affirming – sailing past the Statue of Liberty in New York as dawn breaks or watching dolphins surfing the bow wave are just two. Sailing into a Norwegian fjord on glassy water, with mountains and ancient glaciers in the distance has to be another one of those experiences.
Fjord cruises are becoming increasingly popular, and it’s easy to see why. The view from the water is unparalleled – you simply can’t fathom their sheer magnitude and scale from land, and you can often access places that would take hours to reach by land. By cruising, you’re also able to see natural wonders from a different angle – what other form of travel allows you to sail past a glacier whilst sipping champagne, or witness a waterfall tumble into the water below from the comfort of your balcony?
Wherever you go in Fjordland, you’re likely to see stunning scenery, but there are a couple of spots that are guaranteed to leave you awestruck.
First is the mighty Sognefjord – the world’s longest
Known around the globe for its fun and top-rated restaurants, Las Vegas is a culinary paradise.

Torn between tavernas on that postcard-pretty Greek Island? Bedazzled by the array of tapas bars in Barcelona, or bewildered by the smorgasbord of Swedish fare in Stockholm? How do you tuck into some tasty local fare without it costing a packet and leaving you with a holiday hangover when your credit card bill arrives?
TIP. Avoid typical tourist traps. On the many charming Greek islands, steer clear of tavernas (small restaurants specializing in traditional Greek food) with tacky laminated color photos of dishes outside. Food here usually costs more and it’s often mediocre fare. Listen out instead for Greek voices and dine where the locals go to save money. Loyalty has its own rewards and while you may not want to eat at the same taverna every single night, most of these small , often family run restaurants will go out of their way to give returning diners free ‘extras’ like a brandy after dinner, or a dessert.
TIP. Save money on tipping. In France or Italy, it’s cheaper to have a coffee at the bar. You’ll pay more to
It’s deep midwinter, the fire is flickering, and in the flames you can see your future: a beach in Bali, whales breaching off Alaska, the Namib Desert by moonlight.
It may be a comforting vision when darkness falls at 4pm each day. But first you have to get there.
It’s sensible to start putting away a regular amount out of your income each month. Set up a standing order when your salary lands and you’ll hardly notice the money has gone. Research your trip thoroughly, and use the plethora of travel websites to plan your route. It costs a lot less to book all your flights ahead, and if possible, your accommodation too, even if you may fancy wandering free as a bird.
Budget for each leg of the trip carefully. If you have paid as much ahead as you possibly can, you can then give yourself a daily budget and predict much more accurately what that spend will be.
There are online calculators to help you plan your costs for each country plus the connecting flights, such as this one on www.savingfortravel.com. Have some fun researching online – these

Perast by Dr.Photography
On the main square in the small town of Perast today, just by the St. Nicholas Church, there is an amazing small luxury hotel – Hotel Conte. It is situated in the former Home of Culture, so the building in which hotel is today, is actually a historically important building in it own right. You don’t often get the chance to stay in a building of such significance – well Montenegro is like that! Always something mystic and unique!
The town acquired its present urban plan and architectural appearance during the
Holy Week or Semana Santa as it is known in Spanish is one of the most flamboyant religious festivals to be seen in every city and town of the country as part of Spain’s Easter celebrations.
The festivities are held over an eight day period from Palm Sunday right through to Resurrection Sunday.
A series of spectacular week long pageants and processions take place yearly to mark the occasion with large floats known as pasos carrying lifelike figurines and effigies depicting scenes and characters from the bible.
The floats are paraded through each district by members of the local Catholic Fraternity or Brotherhood.
The sculptures portray a variety of scenes from the gospel such as the Passion of Christ and the Sorrows of Virgin Mary and are in many cases the authentic masterpieces of famous Spanish artists.
Poignant parades in Alicante at Easter
The festivities begin on Palm Sunday with the first series of processions taking place in neighbourhoods up and down the country.
Pageants range from dramatic displays to at times intense and solemn, spiritual affairs. The procession is an enactment
Say to the mausoleums and temples, no to the tickets to enter samey tour destinations, if you have not! Instead, live and breathe like the locals, eat where they eat, and do what they do, in Hue.
Why not? Many tourists reflected that taking a cyclo ride is an indeed a bold move. However, in the end they uniformly enjoy being seated in the vehicle and towed away by a native. There, one can indulge themselves in gently crossing the tiny streets peppered with tamarind leaves snaking within the citadel of Hue. The next moment, one is transported to the road parallel to a dreamy river, or else, the garden houses of the old times
