Everyone knows the two best places to explore the culinary landscape of a destination - in someone’s home or on the streets. No matter what your taste or budget, there are always dishes to meet your culinary cravings. The rise of street food vans in the West is a testament to changing eating habits as people embrace local culinary specialities.

Georgia
Some countries just don’t get enough credit. You can read all the “must see” lists you like and you will seldom see a fabulous destination like Georgia mentioned. It has everything you could want though - scenery to make you gasp, an illuminating history, a cuisine to tell the world about, and that wonderful feeling of discovering somewhere that your friends have barely heard of. You can get a sense of just how under-visited it is from our interview with our local partner there, Visit Georgia. By the way, if you’re looking for the next big thing in wine, then the Georgian variety is hotly tipped - and rightly so.

There is no denying the beauty and mystery of Georgia. As a bridge between east and west, this is a country that bears the imprint of many cultures and peoples, including Turks, Persians, Arabs, Cossacks and Crusaders. Scattered with ancient religious monuments and historic towns, you always feel connected to bygone eras while travelling in Georgia. The Silk Road, Jason and the Argonauts and Imperial Russia all make their influence felt here. Yet, despite these varied themes, there is a fierce sense of coherent national identity and pride.

When tracing histories and culture, every destination becomes a journey; inviting the curious to join its winding path.

Jakarta hums in the midday sun. Cars crawl through crowded streets and its citizens hustle and bustle with all the usual hurry of a capital city.  The air is dense with a chorus of roaring motorbikes, chatter, barking dogs, humidity and the intoxicating smells of Indonesian cuisine.

Wildlife
Almost 1000 kilometres from the nearest continental landmass lies a group of isolated islands which act as a magnet for wildlife and curious humans. This volcanic archipelago is geologically young  at between 2 and 4 million years old. This is the key reason the wildlife here is so fascinating - adaptations to the harsh environment are extreme, unique, and still occurring in many species. These islands allow us to see evolution at close quarters.
