Not as large as the Museo de la Nacion, the National Archaeology, Anthropology, and History Museum does an excellent job of exploring the history of Peru from prehistoric times to the colonial era. The displays are well organized, and you won’t be overwhelmed by the amount of material, making it easier to understand. The variety is impressive, too, with priceless examples of ceramics, figural stone carvings, obelisks, wrapped mummies, burial tombs, jewelry, tapestries, and gold and metal work, many shown with scale models of the archeological sites. The ceramic collection features pieces, which date from 2800 BC, and among the carved obelisks are the granite Tello Obelisk and the famous Estela Raimondi. Parents should be aware that some of the ceramic figures may not be suitable for children. Included with the museum is the adjacent home, once occupied by both Jose de San Martin and Simon Bolivar.
This incredibly well-manicured park is a lovely place to stop and take in the sights from a riverside bench. It comprises a row of lawns interrupted by water features, floral displays and a network of gravelled walkways. Art enthusiasts will enjoy the handful of modern sculptures including bronzes by Laurens, Moore, Ernst and Giacometti. And with a location slap bang between Place de la Concorde, the Seine and the Louvre, the Jardin des Tuileries is easy to get to.
Tower of Trongsa Museum: This museum of the Trongsa region is located in the tower above the dzong. On five storeys, the tower houses a brilliant collection of Buddhist art, royal memorabilia and other items. You can drive up here or walk up from the town up one of the curving staircases of the two charming chapel towers. There are amazing, wide, sweeping views to be enjoyed from the rooftop of the tower.

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.’
The Ionian Islands are a great choice for a yacht holiday – as the sailing time between islands is short. Sailing here is also well sheltered, with easy holding anchorages. This allows for more time to be enjoyed onshore. The Ionian Islands include the legendary Corfu and Paxos, among 5 other islands. 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.
Tandem Skydiving at Victoria Falls: The king of adrenalin activities at Vic Falls. Forget the fear-triggering 100 metres of the bungee, zip line and bridge swing. With skydiving, we are talking 10 000 metres! Take off from the Zambezi National Park in Zimbabwe and fly over Vic Falls in the small plane. On the way up you get to admire the breathtaking views of Devils Cataract, the Main Falls, Rainbow Falls and Horseshoe Falls from above. Then the plane circles back and then you (and your instructor) jump out, some 10 000 metres above ground level. Freefall at around 200kph until your parachute opens and you drift back down to the drop zone in Zambezi National Park. See even more information at https://tribalreunion.com/.
