Once in a while you come across a place that can only be described as ‘paradise’. We recently had the opportunity to experience just such a place. Called Fornalutx, it’s a tiny village located in amongst the mountains on the north western part of the island of Mallorca, Spain. To make it even better, we had a whole week of staying there in a lovely villa called SA Cova.Viewed : 792

France is probably still reeling from the onslaught of 24 enthusiastic South Africans who literally barged in for a week of wine tasting in the upper Loire valley. Not convinced? Well consider this – take a bunch of wine lovers on a week long barging trip on four barges, in a beautiful region of France, and add a brilliant French wine-tour guide that knows her stuff and have all the right connections, and you have the recipe for terrific fun!Viewed : 2300
This was the question facing us when passing through Paris on our way to the upper Loire region of France for a wine-tasting barging trip recently. We decided to keep our intended sightseeing simple and opted to see the Notre Dame and the palace of Versailles. Unfortunately the weather was not great and we experienced spells of rain alternating with some sunshine, not that this was going to stop us!Viewed : 868
