There’s so many things to do in Auckland and time is the only impediment I could think of… From yachting, cruising and marine safaris, to wine tasting on the isles, adrenaline sports and wildlife exploring, this city has everything you could ever dream of and more.
Surrounded by idyllic coastlines of Southern Spain, Almeria offers the true taste of real Spain, untouched by mass tourism.

In spring, temperature usually don’t go below 14°C and mount up to 21°C.
Located in south-central Morocco, Ouarzazate (pronounced Wa-za-zat) is the magical gateway to the Saharan desert. Enjoy trekking by camels, 4×4 or quad bikes, desert adventures, discovering African paradise oasis and don’t miss the citadel (“kasbah”) Ait Benhaddou, to experience a truly magical sunset from its fortified granary at the top. Ait Benhaddou has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
One of the best times to visit this Middle Eastern gem is spring, when temperatures are warm, yet not extreme. This port city on the Gulf of Oman is a perfect destination for anyone that craves fresh seafood, likes to discover impressive mosques and Oriental palatial architecture, enjoys endless desert trekking and Middle Eastern hospitality. A boat tour around the Gulf where dolphin acrobatics can be spotted is definitely a must-do while in Oman.
Nepal’s capital city, Kathmandu is a vibrant hub of Asian culture and architecture, majestic mountains, religious temples and national parks. One of the UNESCO world heritage sites can be found in Kathmandu: Boudhanath Stupa, the largest and most colourful temple in Nepal and a significant religious center of the Buddhist community. For travelers set on a mission to conquer the Everest, Kathmandu is the place to start. Narayanhiti Palace is an amazing site offering an insight into Nepal’s distant monarchy and Chitwan National Park is another word heritage site where wildlife lovers can spot rhinos, deer, monkeys, crocodiles, hyenas and wild boars.
The capital city of Turkey is packed with history, culture, art and archaeological landmarks. Visit Ankara Castle, a panoramic walk back in history, explore the antique shops, don’t miss the variety of museums (Anatolian Civilizations, Art and Sculpture, Cer Modern and so many more…) and discover Hamamönü, an Ottoman style neighbourhood featuring old houses and historic buildings, cafes and souvenir shops. Turkish cuisine is famous for its distinctive oriental flavour and street food in Ankara is especially delicious.
This absolutely magnificent Spanish island has been declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 993. And for very good reasons, since its main attraction is Timanfaya National Park, an entirely volcanic ground, which tourists can observe either by camel or coach. Abundant in wineries and wine cellars, Lanzarote is also famous for its delicious Malvasia wines. The impressive Green Lagoon, the Papagayo beach paradise, the Green Caves and many others are nature’s wonders, not to be missed.
