Whether you opt for Mario de'Fioro 37, Babuino 181 or Margutta 54, they each have their own unique histories and character yet all boasting the same beautiful Roman design principles of modern comfort and elegance in stunning Italian style. We chose the luxurious Margutta 54 as our Italian 'home away from home', a stunning collection of converted artist's studios, including that of Picasso.

Baños - The adventure capital of Ecuador

We arrived into Baños a little unsure of what to expect and a little weary eyed after some heavy nights in the beach party town of Máncora with a plan to see a few sights and spend a couple of days of days relaxing around the thermal baths before heading up to Quito. Little did we know that this would be the exact opposite of what Baños had in store for us.

A Royal Visit to Hampton Court Palace

The Tudor Dynasty ruled England for well over 100 years: from Henry VII's battlefield victory in 1485 to the death of his grand-daughter Elizabeth I in 1603. His defining ambition - to pass his crown to a male heir - resulted in six marriages and divided England from Rome and Catholic Europe. Henry's religious and political policies continue to influence England's political, religious and social life to this day. The magnificence and wealth of his court - his palaces and parks, tapestries and paintings and grand, lavish lifestyle can still be experienced at Hampton Court Palace, after 500 years. Hampton Court Palace is a wonderful opportunity to witness, discover and experience the life of Henry VIII and the Tudors and should not be missed on your trip to the UK.

Hampton Court Palace is grand, magnificent and gives you a wonderful insight into the lavish lifestyles of Henry VIII and the royal family. Located in East Molesey, Surrey and only a short 30 minute train trip from London, it is a wonderful piece of British history and a perfect way to spend a day of your travels. Discover the busting Base Court, beautiful Fountain Court, explore the vast Tudor kitchens, crane your neck whilst gazing at the Great Hall and marvel at the breath taking, magnificent State Rooms and Apartments where it is obvious that no expense has been spared.
