    It’s a country that’s overflowing with history – monuments and relics with an allure that cannot be denied. One of the most impressive of ancient civilisations, Egypt has always been an exciting and enticing location for travellers, providing the setting for many a book or movie that’s bursting, so it should come as no surprise that Egypt is set to maintain its position as one of the world’s top travel destinations in 2019.

    There are those who chase the sun, and those who chase the snow – if being surrounded by mountains, snow and après-ski chalets is your idea of a good time, then have we got a treat for you.

    New Year is a magical time, and not just because of the fireworks. It’s a time where the whole world comes together to celebrate a new beginning, the chance to take on new challenges and to be inspired, a chance to meet new people and, of course, to travel to new destinations (our favourite part of the new year).
