From a European perspective, when I consider the Caribbean, Puerto Rico would rarely be an island I’d have thought about visiting. While this corner of the US is a popular Spring Break destination for American mainlanders it isn’t as well known or visited for us Brits. Yet, my recent visit to this fascinating Caribbean island has given me an insight into a fabulous place, and one to which I’m already plotting my return. I found so many great things to do in Puerto Rico – a destination that is also challenging the usual status quo of Caribbean travel – which is often based around chain hotels and all inclusives – to put the focus on sustainable travel to the benefit of the whole community.

When people talk of paradise it’s often of white sand beaches where the sun warms your skin and the ocean air fills your lungs. But what if I told you that you could find paradise of a different kind in one of Canada’s lesser known provinces? Newfoundland & Labrador may not be the first province you think to visit in Canada, but it will reward you with incredible experiences, spectacular landscapes and a seriously warm welcome. I wasn’t sure just what I would find when visiting Newfoundland & Labrador – it’s not somewhere that people often talk about, so it’s probably safe to say that the masses are unfamiliar with it. But that to me is definitely some of its appeal.
