Jim Holmes

Jim Holmes is a documentary photographer that has lived and worked through Asia for over 30 years. He has worked on humanitarian and international development projects for agencies such as Oxfam and the UN.  He specialised in the Mekong region countries for 20 years.
The Lower Mekong flows through  Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and into Vietnam, where through the mouths of the nine dragons, it empties its silt laden water into the sea.  War ravaged these nations and maintained the poverty that was so evident until recent years. The river brought survival with its bounty of fish but now the flow is threatened by hydropower which could bring riches and poverty.

Brian Anderson

" Paint cannot touch it and words are wasted " wrote Frederic Remington in 1895 whilst pony trekking through Yellowstone.
At over 2.2 million acres, Yellowstone was the USA’s and the world’s first National Park when established in 1872.
This awesome place contains some of the world’s biggest geysers and hot springs, magnificent landscapes, and mighty beasts, including bears, bison, elk and wolves.
Share Brian’s stunning landscape and wildlife images from his 2013 trip to this simply staggering wilderness region. ‘Yellowstone’ is a must for all armchair nature lovers.

Anna Manning & Howard Jennings

We were offered 18 days of dog-sitting and wondered how best to use it. We love Mallorca and wanted to see where we could get to that was reasonably nearby. Our trip has five stops joined by tandem, boat, and train and takes us through three countries: Spain, France, and Italy. We’ll describe how we put the trip together, our adventures along the way, the food we ate, the views we saw, and the people we met.

 

Marion Round

I enjoy travelling to interesting places with small group tour companies.
I come from a Welsh family, and am re-learning the language.
In 1865 153 Welsh people embarked on a journey to Patagonia, they were promised a fertile land with fresh water; this is not what they found.
The 2 main areas where the Welsh have settled are now thriving, with the Welsh language and culture is increasing.

We travelled through the Welsh areas, and across the huge Desert separating them, looking at fascinating places where few people ever get to.

Paul Gillingham

Paul visits Santiago and Valparaiso in Chile, rents city bikes to sample the Argentine grape in Mendoza and explore tango, Evita and Maradona in Buenos Aires. He joins his two sons on a cycle-camping expedition around the lakes and volcanoes of northern Patagonia.

Now retired, Paul taught history in UK, Canada, Tanzania and Hong Kong before becoming a journalist and broadcaster, producing travel features from around the world.

 

Chris Prior

Together with 17 other motorcyclists I rode my Triumph Tiger through Spain to Morocco.  From Tangiers we travelled over the Atlas Mountains to the Sahara at Merzouga. 
The return route included dirt roads around the Todra Gorge. After a stop at Ben Haddou we travelled to Marrakech and then headed north back to the port of Tangiers.  Six days were spent in transit through Spain and eleven in Morocco.
