1. See Russia by a slow boat on the Volga
See Russia by a slow boat on the Volga
Russia, for decades not particularly welcoming to western tourists, has changed its spots. Now, the Ruskis seem just as keen as everybody to relieve you of your tourist dollars. Moscow and St Petersburg will bid you welcome. But there's more to Russia than just those two great big cities. One go...

2. See Bergen: Gateway to the Norwegian fjords
See Bergen: Gateway to the Norwegian fjords
'The original Vikings came from here, you know,' a Bergen taxi driver told me. 'We were the original terrorists.' He seemed to think it was a great joke. Bergen's terrorists won't bother you much these days. It's a friendly city, even though my short-term taxi driver friend insisted that at only...

3. On the beach, into the woods, cute critters, at Australia's Wilsons Promontory National Park
On the beach, into the woods, cute critters, at Australia's Wilsons Promontory National Park
Going all the way to Australia? Already there? Be sure to go as far south as you can go on the mainland of the Great South Land. The entire island state of Tasmania awaits you even further south. You'll find a lot to see and do at Victoria's Wilsons Promontory, known to the locals as 'The Prom. ...

4. A tourist inside the Kremlin
A tourist inside the Kremlin
'You are welcome to visit Kremlin and its museums!' So says the Kremlin's official website. The exclamation mark is theirs. As well it might be. To those of us who grew up in the Cold War era, just the word 'Kremlin' could have warranted an exclamation mark. It was that evil place in Moscow, at ...

5. South Australia's Enchanting Flinders Ranges
South Australia's Enchanting Flinders Ranges
I've lost track of how many times I've been to South Australia's Flinders Ranges in the last 40 years, but they never fail to enchant me. They enchant me first from the distance, as I see their blue mountains and red cliffs come into view. They just seem to say, ' Photograph me'. To some people ...

6. The joys of river cruising
The joys of river cruising
Some people like to take their holidays in just one place, settle down, chill out, lie by the pool, read a book, sleep, eat, drink. I've got nothing against any of that. But most of it I can do at home (or near home) anyway. When I go away, I like to 'travel', see something new every day. So le...

7. How to get high in Rio
How to get high in Rio
Everybody knows Brazil's most famous city, Rio de Janeiro, has great beaches. Who hasn't heard of 'The Girl from Ipanema'? And nearly everybody knows that those beaches are backed by some fabulous heights. Who hasn't seen a picture of Christ the Redeemer?...

8. Lake Titicacas floating islands
Lake Titicacas floating islands
Once upon a time, when the Uro people saw the Collas or the Incas coming, they'd unhook their floating islands from the ropes that tied them to sticks driven into the bottom of the lake and start paddling furiously. They knew the Collas and the Incas were not their best friends, and were inclined...

9. Afloat and ashore on the Amazon
If we go by how much water it pours into the ocean, the Amazon is without doubt the world's largest river. It accounts for as much water as the next seven biggest rivers all put together. When it comes to length, you can get an argument. Until recently, the Nile held the gold medal. Now, clever ...
