Situated at the very heart of French wine culture, the city has a long and varied history, beautiful buildings, stunning old town and is a great place for a short trip or cultured weekend away. I spent 5 nights in Bordeaux at the height of summer...

Thoughts of Rio de Janeiro conjure up an exotic concoction of carnivals, parties, beaches, mountains, sunshine, enormous Jesuses, Olympics… …and crime.Renowned for its gang culture, gun crime and high death rates, the city of Rio is a microcosm of Brazil’s widespread corruption – largely stemming from many of the country’s politicians at the very top. But I’d urge anyone thinking of going not to forget all the great stuff too....

I’ve just got back from a couple of weeks in the swelteringly sunny South of France. The main reason for the trip was to celebrate my brother-in-law’s 40th birthday: he hired an enormous château near to Agen and invited his friends and family to stay and party with him for a few days. Flights: I chose Ryanair flights out to Toulouse from London Stansted, flying with lots of my partner’s family. And then British Airways flights for just him and myself back to...

During our month in Italy we were hoping to spend a few days exploring Florence. But circumstances forced us to stay in Rome during the time we’d allocated for Florence. In the end that worked out pretty well: the kids got to see Rome for the...

We had 4 days to explore Venice, which I think is probably longer than the average amount of time. Now, don’t get me wrong; the city is beautiful and utterly beguiling. You could stroll its maze-like streets and wander relentlessly into its little nooks and piazzas for many days. But in reality it’s not a big city and if you’re not a lover of museums, 4 days to see all the major sights feels like plenty. So, for any stays longer than a couple of nights you’re...
