With each step I took I got closer to the summit of the towering sand dune in front of me to look out upon the rising sun. I got here by camal yesterday, led by a moody man called Mohammed. It's Ramadan and even though temperatures exceed 40 degrees, Mohammed has not been able to eat or drink from sun rise to sun set. Not even a drop of water.

I'm in the Sahara desert which covers a quarter of the African continent and extends over 9 million square kilometres making me seem like just another grain of sand. As I looked back I could see 6 tents in amongst the sand dunes where I have spent the night underneath a blanket of stars. As the sun rose over the Sahara desert, I felt so inspired and it made me feel so alive!
We truly live in a beautiful world!

Fès, an ancient walled city is the medieval capital of Morocco. The old town is the best-preserved old city in the Arab world. The medina, Fès el-Bali, is a complete labyrinthine and the world's largest car-free urban zone with transportation of goods by donkeys, mules and handcarts.

Florence, known for its culture and Renaissance art and architecture is the capital city of the Tuscany region of Italy. With its famous cathedral and the Ponte Vecchio bridge, the only bridge which remained intact in the city following the 2nd World War. This was in danger when I was in Florence following the collapse of the road and the banking nearby which risked the safety of the medieval covered bridge over the Arno river.

Rome, the capital and biggest city in Italy has nearly 3000 years of influential architecture, art and culture. Trevi Fountain, one of the must see sight receives over 3000€ a day of donations which is swept up from the bottom and used by a catholic charity to help needy families in Rome. There is a law in Rome allowing cats to live where they were born without disruption therefore you will find them curled up in the Colosseum and other famous land marks. A truly interesting city with amazing places round every corner.

Pompeii, once a thriving town and famous for its fish sauce, is now an UNESCO world heritage site. On the destructive day of 24th August 79AD, Mount Vesuvius changed this town forever and left it forgotten and undiscovered under tons of ash. However more recently, for the past 250years it has been a tourist destination. It is easy to forget the loss of life when wandering the ruins of Pompeii however one area to remind you is the Garden of the Fugitives. During excavations plaster was used to fill the spaces in the layers of ash which once contained people in the exact position as they died. The only memory left of the people who lived and died in Pompeii.
