Why Laos and where to go

After finally deciding to tick off my long-overdue trip to Laos I was rewarded with the sight of lesser-known marvels that include splendid UNESCO sites, magnificent temples and stunning scenery.

Unforgettable experiences

Pure joy, climbing Gros Piton in Soufriere, St Lucia

Climbing one of St Lucia's iconic twin peaks is an exhilarating challenge that although tricky in some parts is easily doable by most people with an average level of fitness. It provides you with some very special bird's-eye view over the island as well as the opportunity to spot the rare St Lucian parrot along with some other beautiful wildlife species. Take a leaf from my book and find out what you can look forward to in this sometimes steep but always stunning climb.
