"In that imperative, time-honoured question to golf or not to golf, the answer is always, invariably, to golf. With five superlative courses within Palm Beach proper, and many more besides, the ever-exclusive golfing greens of Palm Beach are a honeypot for celebrities and millionaires alike."

"For the gentleman about town, there’s little else more enjoyable than an old-fashioned hot-shave. London’s traditional barbers are a sanctuary of peace and golden solitude, where you can escape the hectic modern world and enjoy this luxury at the hands of the professionals."

"Rajasthan isn’t known as the land of kings for nothing: golden deserts stretch out into rolling hills of ruby-coloured earth, scattered with the barren glory of ancient ruins. What better way to explore this majestic landscape than to spend a night under canvas, sleeping like royals beneath the stars?"

"It’s January. Again. The time of year when the remaining winter months stretch out endlessly before us in an unrelenting, dreary haze. Christmas is just about over; springtime is doubtful; and summer is impossibly far away..."
Banish those winter blues and rouse your spirits with one of our rejuvenating UK breaks.

"Located on the eastern coast of the United Arab Emirates, Fujairah sets itself apart. This picturesque region of rugged mountains and unspoiled beaches is the youngest of seven sibling emirates, and has all the opportunity for prosperity and growth, with none of the overdevelopment."

"From the ultra swish and modern townhouses of Charlottenburg, to the sensationalist art projects and industrial warehouses of the Eastern districts, there is a niche to suit every weird and wonderful kink in alternative Berlin."

Introduction

Elizabeth suffers from an acute case of the wanderlust, which no amount of travelling or adventure can cure. She has lived in London, New York, and Berlin; experimented with nomadism in North America, and climbed to the freezing heights of Kilimanjaro on a whim. Future travel plans include getting lost in South Africa, keeping a menagerie in Europe, and finding herself in India before she is old.
