Top 5 reasons to keep smiling about Thailand

For a country that has the reputation for being incredibly friendly and welcoming, the news about the military coup in Thailand is concerning. No one knows if the military leaders will look to re-establish a democratic political system in a few months … or how the country will settle.

Top 5 things to do in Cuba with kids

The atmosphere throughout Cuba is vibrant and lively; it has an intoxicating feel and a visit will leave you full of historical knowledge and with a passion for dance. I love Cuba because it's a friendly, beautiful place to take your kids. There's excitement, cultural enrichment and education, plus it has some of the best beaches in Latin America. Havana has just been named world's 'best destination' according to Wanderlust readers and rightly so. It's a must for families to experience the incredible ambiance of Cuba.
