Oman – the perfect spot for a half term family escape or simply an autumn adventure, the decline of the searing heat of the summer months makes now a delightful time to soak up the warmth of the coast, desert and mountains where the autumn harvest is beginning.

Nepal – with the rains over, clear blue skies, crisp air and clear views are the order of the day. The dry weather makes trekking easier and the lush, renewed landscapes, following the monsoon are a thing of fantasy for keen photographers.

India – not only is the country verdant green after the rainy season, October is also the month when Diwali (Festival of Light) is celebrated. The country’s biggest festival sees millions of diyas (candles) lit across the land with dazzling firework displays illuminating the sky to celebrate.

Mexico – the end of the month sees the mystical festival of the Day of the Dead, or El Día de Muertos, celebrated all over Mexico. Revellers in fancy dress, spill onto the streets, their faces cleverly made up to resemble skulls, to rouse and celebrate the dead.

Kenya

Kenya is widely regarded as the home of the safari. Steeped in tradition and fame it was Ernest Hemingway who immortalised the safari experience (although sporting and not photographic), and Joy Adamson was among the group of expatriates in the 1960s and 1970s whose endeavours to conserve African wildlife captured the world’s attention. The writings of Karen Blixen, and the adaptation of her classic book “Out of Africa” into a motion picture helped establish Kenya as the great iconic safari destination of the modern era.

It is almost impossible not to fall in love with the colour and culture of this vibrant country.

The gentle beat of samba music; fresh fish pulled straight from the ocean and onto your plate (eaten with your fingers); warm, white sand under bare feet on an abandoned beach – no fancy deckchairs just you and the crashing waves of the Atlantic.
