Nick's most interesting trip
Travelling through Syria and Lebanon prior to the Arab Spring and experiencing the contrast of culture and development between the two countries. Syria with its combination of a warm and welcoming culture, delicious food and amazing cultural and historic diversity, and Lebanon past and present with the glamour and glitter of the beaches. A trip never to be repeated – unfortunately true.

Top destinations
Sri Lanka – landscape, wildlife, wellbeing and sensational food and culture
Malaysian Borneo – diving, wildlife and fascinating culture
Egypt and Jordan – steeped in history – the birthplace and battleground of so much history and civilisations

Nick's travel tips
Walk the streets of old cities early in the morning. This is when you discover the real city and what makes it tick. Search out the chatter as that is where the best coffee and breakfast can be found. Keep some change in your pocket; you never know when it will be handy.
