Habeeb Salloum on Malaga

After travelling through Malaga's subtropical countryside dotted with fruit- laden orchards and elegant villas, exploring its romantic and renovated old section into a traffic-free enclave, then touring its Moorish monuments my seduction was complete when I rode a horse-drawn carriage along the tree-shaded streets.

The River Loir sparkled in the sun below us. The fifteen-minute flight from the airstrip near La Fleche had been the high point of our trip and a very good way to start our holiday. Our pilot pointed out villages and Chateaux that we could visit later. We even located a sandy beach neatly set alongside one of the many lakes..

The Black Forest by Burkemobile

With the Burkemobile packed and up and ready, we headed for Strasbourg. Crossing the border with Germany it wasn’t long before we were driving through the breath-taking scenery of the Moselle valley. The massive vineyards stretching way into the hills, and the huge, passenger liners cruising on the river alongside us, suddenly making us feel very small.


The island is only nine miles by five but a great number of leafy byways  are contained in its vales and hills.  

They are ideal for a family cycling holiday and  a 'green lane’  scheme  means that cyclists and horse riders have priority over the car.
