Road to Urkmez, Seferihisar, SW Turkey

Peter Morley's Travel Section

Travel, for some, is a tedium to get to where you're going. For me it's part of the fun - at least on the way there. It's no picnic sitting on a plane for 14 hours at a time, or laying awake at night adjusting to a new clock, but to me it's part of the deal when exploring the world and finding a new destination.

We all travel more often nowadays, and probably take it for granted (the furthest I travelled as a kid was 2 or 3 hours in the back of a Hillman Avenger to Ingoldmells). Like many other folk I've travelled through Europe as well as places such as USA and Canada, I've spent a little time in South Africa, explored some of India, and stuck a toe in the Middle East, SE Asia, and Australia amongst others. But for me, my 2 favourites have to be Vietnam and Italy.

Italy is described as being one of the greatest single sources of sensorial pleasures in the world, often described as the Belpaese (Beautiful Country). On the other hand - exploring Vietnam where the colours are vivid, the landscapes bold, the coastline dramatic and history compelling is where life is simply lived in the fast lane.

I can't compare the two, which is probably why I love them both.
