Playing Tourist across the Tiber

While our company’s goal is to provide unique and personalized travel experiences for our clients that does not mean that we are travel snobs disdaining all things deemed “touristy”. If you are visiting Athens and don’t spend an evening in the Plaka you are missing out on some good fun (and good food as well) the same applies to the wine village of Grinzing outside Vienna or Montmartre in Paris. When in Rome therefore, do as the Romans do and devote an evening to wining and dining in Trastevere one of the oldest areas of the city and one of its most atmospheric.

Jakarta to Surabaya and Places along the Way

Indonesia is comprised of a variety of islands with Sumatra being the largest in terms of land mass and Bali, with its alluring beaches, the most well known. It is Java however that was the heart of the Dutch East Indies, when it was known as Batavia, and continues to be the heart of this independent nation.

Evolution from the Galapagos Tortoise’s perspective

For many years the world has focused on Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution based on his 1835 visit to the Galapagos Islands. For many of us the impression was of an elderly man looking like the winner of a George Bernard Shaw lookalike contest arriving in the uninhabited islands to discover unique mutations of various animal species. The reality is somewhat different. First, Darwin was only 26 when he visited the Galapagos and it took him another 25 years to advance his theory in The Origin of the Species.

London's Little Shop of Soldiers

If you were a boy and, if you happened to grow up in England, chances are you had a collection of toy soldiers usually from various times in history but if you are eight years old, yeoman bowmen can support light cavalry from the Napoleonic wars and have World War II Desert Rats held in reserve.

An All-Inclusive in India fit for a Prince

Saturated as we are with ubiquitous commercials for all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico it would be understandable to think that this type of product is exclusive to that part of the world. We would like to offer a different take on an all-inclusive, not in the Caribbean but in India, not involving hundreds of guests but less than thirty and directed not by an ex-cruise director but by a Prince and the son of a Maharajah.
