South of central Lima in Pueblo Libre is the Rafael Larco Herrera Museum, more commonly called the Larco Museum. The 18th-century viceroy mansion that houses it was built on the site of a pre-Columbian pyramid from the 7th century. The Larco Museum contains a huge collection of more than 40,000 pieces of Peruvian ceramics, a large portion of which is from the Moche and Chimu cultures. These are not all on display at once. There is also an excellent collection of gold work, along with some textiles, stone carvings, and metalwork.
If you know the Hunchback, you know the cathedral. After Victor Hugo’s 1831 novel ‘The Hunchback of Notre-Dame’, Disney’s plucky ’90s movie brought the wonderfully foreboding Gothic architecture of the historic icon (built between 1163 and 1345) to a whole new generation. Even after the inferno that tore through the roof in April 2019, which millions watched unfold on screens worldwide, the Cathedrale Notre-Dame still stands majestic on the Ile de la Cite. On your next visit, look up at its timeless facade and imagine its future – just how will they rebuild this sacred beast?
National Museum of Bhutan: On the hill above Rinpung Dzong lies Ta Dzong, a watchtower fortress with seven stories that has housed the National museum of Bhutan since 1964. This unusual building is said to be in the shape of a conch shell. It was built in 1656 and is undergoing a process of restoration, following earthquakes in the last decade, that is due to be completed this year.
This 7 day festival held in August certainly lives up to its hype according to one review we read. The music, the visionary art, the ambience, the organisation are all as good as people say, and even the occasional thunder and rain storm didn’t detract from the overall experience of Ozora’s magic. It is the festival worth coming to each year as it develops organically. To quote one of the aspects of their missions ‘A universe of openness, togetherness, where we can evolve towards becoming one with cosmic energies, with nature, with consciousness, with each other, through dance, trance, creation, invention, transformation and peace.’ Find even more information at spiritual festivals and gathetings.

Each destination here is loaded with its own unique charm and drawcards. Between the sheer natural beauty and the wonderful Greek towns – the Ionian Islands is always a favourite cruising ground in this country.
