The countries to visit this October



In a place where there is literally a beach for every day of the year, you know you’ve hit the paradise jackpot. In this laidback desert island fantasy, your every whim is met with a friendly “no problem!” From the panoramic vistas of Shirley Heights, to the endless sandy curves, to a Sunday sundown street party where locals welcome you with open arms, Antigua is a perfect 10.


In a land where sipping sangria, tapas grazing and afternoon shut-eye are part of the everyday, this is a country we instantly feel comfortable. Beautiful golden coastlines are contrasted by the country’s vast interior of green mountains, but it’s the warm hospitality and deep-rooted passionate tradition that leaves a mark.


The cuisine. The culture. The architecture. All so very chic, charming and overindulgent. And indulge we do. Archaeological journeys through ancient cities, winding street strolls through enchanting towns and vineyards as far as the eye can see.


Picturesque coastlines, lush green countryside and cities steeped in history. All on our doorstep, and often overlooked. But the UK has a certain charm, and we are transfixed. Stroll over the town cobbles, look out to sea or walk in areas of outstanding natural beauty.


With oceans that shimmer and lands that invite exploration and awe, the jewel of the Dalmatian coastline is a true delight. Rugged cliff-edged landscapes give way to idyllic coves, beautifully preserved traditional architecture, and quaint town charm, yet to be disturbed or overrun by tourism. One to explore before the word spreads.


Christened by the Venetians for its striking mountains that cascade into the bay, this tiny nation combines wild hinterland with an alluring coastline. Bursting at the seams with majestic mountains, breath-taking beaches and larger-than-life locals, here lies proof that good things come in small packages. And it’s yet to be discovered by the masses.

Sri Lanka

From the bustling energy of Colombo to the ancient wonders of Sigiriya, this island nation captivates with its diverse landscapes. Immerse yourself in the vibrant culture, savouring spicy curries and exploring the historic city of Kandy. With pristine beaches, lush tea plantations, and sacred sites, Sri Lanka unfolds as a tapestry of captivating beauty and ancient charm.


An intriguing cultural collision between Europe and Asia, this land’s epic historical tales and magical landscapes have enchanted travellers for years. Capture the essence of its archaeological and cultural heritage, mix with the locals and uncover its fascinating history. From the sands to the spices to the shakshuka, this eye-opening, sense awakening country is a real-time dream.


The perfect blend of thrill, relaxation and enlightenment, Thailand has our heart. Vibrant city streets, taste-bud teasing night markets and magical hidden coves. We head south to the pristine bays and lagoon hideaways, venture to ancient temples and explore the Thai tropic wonders in-between.

South Africa

Open your senses in this fruitful land. Smell the wine, taste the street food flavours, listen and watch for the sounds of the wild, and feel the vibrant energy of the ‘Mother City’. A colonial past with sights for sore eyes, South Africa is a stunning and diverse unforgettable adventure.


With landscapes that take the breath of even the most seasoned traveller, the beauty of this captivatingly diverse place goes far deeper than the picture-perfect surface of Lake Bled. Peppered with Venetian harbour towns, deep valleys, enchanting castles and Alpine vistas, Slovenia is quite the find.


Here you’ll find the simple life. With crystal-clear waters that give the Caribbean a run for their money, the beaches are a wonder all on their own. But it’s what lies beyond the stunning coastlines that sparkles brightest of all. Locals with open arms, kind hearts and big characters. They share their traditions so beautifully, connecting us to moments we’ll never forget.
