A visit to Girona wouldn’t be complete without a pit-stop at Gelateria Rocambolesc. Owned by the Roca brothers (from El Celler de Can Roca, one of the world’s best restaurants), Rocambolesc serves a seductive mix of ice-creams and sorbets in a manner which one only expects at Michelin-star restaurants.
Chobe National Park is one of Botswana’s prime safari destinations. Located in the north of the country, bordering Namibia, the park is home to a large variety of wildlife, including elephants. It’s possible to observe the wildlife on jeep and boat safaris. Whilst on the latter, we had an amazing encounter with two elephants swimming across the river. You see, I never knew elephants could swim!
Jerash is an ancient Greco-Roman city, about 50km north of Jordan’s capital, Amman. The city can trace its roots back to approximately 300 B.C.. Also known as the ‘City of a Thousand Columns’, Jerash is a must-see in Jordan. Many of the city’s gems such as the theatres, Hippodrome, Hadrian’s Arch and the unique oval Forum have been beautifully restored.
Pals is one of the most charming medieval towns in Costa Brava, the region north of Barcelona. The town is located in the Baix Emporda, a short drive from the coast and a stone’s throw away from another medieval town, Begur. Pals is perhaps most famous for its beautifully-restored medieval quarter, dominated by the 11th century Torres de les Horres. For me, another reason to visit Pals is Vicus, one of my favourite restaurants in the area!
