Johannesburg

Vibrant, ever-changing, fabulously wealthy, desperately poor, vast, multi-faceted Johannesburg flings contrasts at you from every angle. Trees line streets where houses hide their manicured gardens and pristine blue swimming pools behind high white walls, miles of shacks tell of the effects of the apartheid years – still to be overcome. The air of Africa’s most dynamic city vibrates with music and buzzes with business while its stylish restaurants, elegant shops, art galleries and theatres delight the international visitor.

Dublin

Dublin is a city that everyone raves about. Displaced locals get all misty-eyed about the pubs, the hilarious, friendly people they left behind. It is a modern, hard-working, affluent centre of commerce and industry as well as a cultural capital and it is home to some of Europe's most renowned artists. It is a city that deserves to be taken seriously. And, for those who do, it is a richly rewarding, fascinating place with its incredible beautifully preserved mansions and castles, meticulously curated museums, churches, cathedrals, and parks.
Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: Zurenborg

Zurenborg is quite possibly the most beautiful neighbourhood in Antwerp. It flaunts its belle époque grandeur like a coquettish lady. It proudly shows surprised visitors its art nouveau façades, elegant streets and squares. But the highlight is the 19th century Cogels-Osylei: sublime architecture from around the turn of the previous century.

Lapland

Wilderness and unspoiled scenery entice you to Swedish Lapland and provide breathtaking winter adventures, trips along rivers, and exhilarating hikes. Get to know the unique Sami culture and relax in the reindeer sleigh while watching pulsating northern lights dance in the heavens above. The national parks and seductive tastes of reindeer, trout and arctic raspberries add colour to your holiday. Here you can discover the secrets of the mines, traditional marketplaces, enjoy a summer sun that never wants to set and the Icehotel that glitters like crystal.

Mechelen

‘Mechelaars’ talk about their city with pride. Sometimes with a touch of humour, but always with underlying warmth. Visitors are struck by the genial atmosphere as they stroll past monuments redolent with age and pause in colourful courtyards and historic churches. The Mechelaar is proud of Gouden Carolus, the award-winning beer brewed here for centuries. He is proud of Margaret, Charles V’s aunt, who put sixteenth-century Mechelen on the world map. And he has a soft spot for traditional craftsmanship and authentic local products. Come to Mechelen and experience its urban charms for yourself!
