Tanzania - Not Just Exotic Names (Part 4)
The next stop, about 300km south of Dares Salaam, past the massive and trackless Rufiji River delta, is Kilwa Masoko. This soporific hamlet is seemingly stuck in a permanent stupor.

Beach Volleyball In Devon

Holistic Austrian Retreat
I’m standing on the edge of a silver lake and tears are streaming down my face. But it’s not sadness I feel. The setting sun has left a fragile pink glow over the mountains and, as I listen to the slow movement from Mahler’s Fifth on my iPod, I’m surrounded by such beauty that all I feel is joy, and I realise the work of Viva Mayr Spa is done.
My Sweet Escape
Squirrelled away on a lofty floor of Claridge’s is a spa gem. It is intimate, with just three treatment rooms, and has such charm. It uses Sisley products, which are a delight (the Sisleya Body Therapy is absurdly effective), and there’s a men’s range, so if you are away with a lover you can both book in to maximum effect.

A survey conducted at the end of last year has revealed that more Brits have visited the Eiffel Tower than they have Buckingham Place.
