Kuredu ? truly a paradise island
WHEN my husband suggested going to the Maldives to celebrate our coral wedding anniversary my first feeling was one of consternation.

Dark gem of Africa
Ed Coan visits a land where the British were once slaughtered but are now gratefully welcomed as tourists. The battlefields, however, have hardly changed.

Emotional journey
Francine Miller visits Poland, the land of her ancestors, where so many met a tragic end under German occupation in World War Two.

Rest in Rodez
FRENCH engineering's most recent success is the work of an Englishman. The Millau viaduct, the the tallest in the world, opened in southern France in December 2004 and is set to have a huge impact on the lives of thousands of motorists who make their annual pilgrimage to the Med this summer.

Bubbles and chic
FOR many Brits a short break in France means one thing only: the infamous booze cruise. We all know the drill: hire a dirty white van, drive down to Dover at the crack of dawn, load up with cigarettes and alcohol and bid the natives au revoir.

Enjoying the taste of Portugal
I WONDER if Delia Smith and Nigella Lawson, the darlings of every aspiring home cook, have even heard of a recipe called Heaven's Bacon? Or, then again, maybe Nun's Belly and, even saucier, Angels Pouch writes Ken Bennett.

Angels in America
MENTION a tale of two cities and you could be forgiven for thinking about a novel by Charles Dickens, not Los Angeles, a city located off the warm shores of the south Californian coast.

Spice and Paradise
When we arrived in Zanzibar, our guide started his talk by asking us what we already knew about the island. After an embarrassed pause, one of number said that she'd heard it was a good place for scuba diving, while another offered that Freddie Mercury was born here. Apart from that, its significance was lost on us. We had so much to learn.

Wells Gray - A Canadian odyssey
AS late baby boomers my husband and I long ago decided growing old gracefully was not an option. However, needing something more challenging than wearing purple with a red hat that doesn't go, we found ourselves on a seven-day hike of the Wells Gray traverse from Trophy Mountain to Battle Mountain in the Canadian Rockies.
