Gran Canaria by Bus
On a visit to the Canary Islands we were disaponted to find that our holiday apartment was right in the middle of one of Europe’s biggest holiday towns.
The local bus services provided the answer and we soon found that Gran Canaria had a lot to offer. It was like a miniature continent with extreme landscapes combining African, European and American vegetation.

Habeeb Salloum on Luxor
The greatest open-air museum on earth, where one can truly appreciate the Ancient Egyptians' contribution to world civilization.
There is no place else on earth where so many ruins are concentrated in one spot
They turned out to be hills of salt from the nearby salt pans ready for men to shovel into sacks. It was not the easiest of journeys but well worth it to reach the long bay at Es Trenc. It is a beautiful Caribbean style beach with turquoise blue water. and the necessities of life, a beer and a table to sit at while you eat your squid watch the beautiful people.
Adam in Parma
Adam Jacot de Boinod visited Parma, a central city to the valley. It is only an hour from either Bologna or Milan airport and is still a hidden joy for most Brits. It is never crowded so there are none of the queues you can get elsewhere in Italy and mercifully no sign of any selfie-sticks.
