When planning a trip to Iceland, up on the edge of the Arctic Circle, don’t forget to pack your board shorts. Trust me, despite the temperature easily getting below -10oC in winter and even flirting with 0oC in summer, you’ll still spend a lot of time outdoors in geothermally heated pools. It’s Iceland’s way of hitting the beach.

There are plenty of reasons to holiday or honeymoon on Langkawi island, off the coast of Malaysia – an hour’s flight from Kuala Lumpur, this golden fringed island is a fabulous place - but I’d go back to Langkawi just to stay at The Four Seasons Resort.

Liverpool, a busy sea port on the River Mersey in north-west England, was voted European City Of Culture in 2008. Renowned for its humour and a love of the arts, this football-mad community, and home of the Beatles, is experiencing a resurgence since the heady days of the Swingin’ Sixties when the city rocked to the music of the Fab Four.

The Hotel Borg, in the dead centre of Reykjavik, is possibly the cleanest and most immaculately presented hotel I have ever stayed in. It’s not just the inside that is pristine; somehow the hotel’s maintenance crews have managed to get the façade spotless too, even after a long, icy winter and slushy wet spring. On the day I arrived an early summer sun was warming the walls and making the place shimmer.
