What’s better than going on holiday? Going on a holiday that involves lots of wine! Whether you are the professional type who swills and spits or, like me can’t stand the thought of wasting something so beautiful and swallows it, there are lots of different experience to be had.
We are all familiar with the famous regions of Europe, the Americas, Africa and Australasia, but are we missing something? Why not try one of these more unusual ideas.
What about the ultimate in luxury, a chauffer driven tour of the Margaret River in a 1955 Bentley. Western Australia is one of the New World’s latest producers, it may be a relatively small producer, but its 80 small boutique wineries have landed themselves a whole host of awards for both cabernets and chardonnays.
The Bentley adds a sense of grandeur to your wine tasting experience, and if you’re like me, you won’t have to worry about spitting out your wine because you’ll have a chauffer to take you back to your hotel.
Luxury and budget trips for wine lovers

This area is not only famous for its earthy Montepulciano D’Abruzzo, but some of the award winning cheeses dipped and matured in grape must, very, very tasty! Click here to read more »
Recently, after spending three weeks living alone and feeling like I was in the middle of nowhere, I started recalling my childhood.

Trip Advisor recently did a survey on how many of us really would like to strip off at a nude beach. Staggering number of people have said yes – especially our Europeans have been very open.
This survey should not be a surprise as there are many nude beaches in continental Europe. Just a quick search on Google brought up quite a few beaches that you can strip off.
Filaki beach in Crete Greece, which claims to be the only official nude beach on the island. It is located near the Vritomartis naturist resort.
Lido di Dante in Ravenna Italy, is also an official nude beach.
Cap d’Agde beach at the town of Agde in France is one of the most popular nude beach in the South of France. The Mediterranean coast of France is actually full of sandy and secluded beaches where you can be one with the nature.
Playa de los Muertos Almeria in Spainclaims to be the world’s most famous nude beach and resort of Vera Playa, near Costa Almeria in Andalusia.
Bol island Brac in Croatia also know as FKK beaches in Bol. Justhead towards the Dominican Monastery, there you will find a remote sandy beach where you can take everything off!!
The island of Sylt, in Germany. This is actually one of the oldest official nude beach in Germany as it was established in 1920. Some claim that it is even the oldest one in Europe. These days, there are around 600,000 Germans registered in more than 300 private nudist clubs.
Most of the official nude beaches around Europe have certain rules or code of polite conduct, so you better familiarise yourself with the local etiquette. So bring with you some sun cream and a bottle of water to keep yourself hydrated and don’t be shy. Get ready to bear it all!!! Click here to read more »
