Bucharest

The country’s capital and the biggest city of Romania, also known as ‘Little Paris’. The label was coined between the two world wars, thanks to its beautiful belle époque architecture.

Today’s Bucharest is a mixture of styles and cultures. From beautiful boulevards to stroll down, to impressive museums to visit, vast parks to relax in, sophisticated restaurants to delight your palate, and modern malls to shop in – the city has it all.

Joe Parkes

As a child I read voraciously so the seed of travel was planted by none other than Enid Blyton. Family holidays ran the gamut from icy dips in the early summer seas of Cornwall, to camel rides in north Africa, from Times Square to Tenerife. A GAP year upon leaving school cemented the travel bug. After graduating University and before stumbling, happily, into a career in the travel industry I spent a couple of glorious years exploring southern and east Africa, large swathes of South-east Asia, India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

Having travelled to different parts of the world over the years it never ceases to amaze me how you constantly learn and evolve from the adventures you experience. I adore working in an environment where I can share my passion for the world and discuss fascinating stories both from my experiences and that of our clients. In the past year I’ve delved into the wintery beauty of St Petersburg, trekked through the colourful desert in Jordan and sailed down the iconic Nile in Egypt.
