A local Bedouin leads his camels across the sands of Wadi Rum, Jordan. Of course, in this modern age the camels are for tourists, and locals use 4x4s to fly across the sands of the desert. But the sight is evocative of an earlier, more romantic age, especially in the warm light of the setting sun. 🇯🇴

The Temple of Hercules creates a spectacular silhouette in the heat of the midday sun. Part of the Amman Citadel complex, this is one of the must-see sites of the Jordanian capital city. The amount of history in this region, from Roman to Biblical to medieval, is just incredible. 🇯🇴

When I said I was travelling to Bulgaria, so many people told me I would love Plovdiv - and they weren't wrong! This quirky photo was taken in the hilly streets of the old town, but Plovdiv also boasts Roman architecture and vibrant modern life to go with its medieval alleyways. The city is a must-see destination if you are heading to Bulgaria yourself. 🇧🇬

A different view of an iconic building - the historic Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. Bathed in late afternoon sunshine, I visited on a whistlestop layover visit to the city. For a city at the crossroads of empires, it seems fitting to visit en route to destinations further afield - but Istanbul will definitely merit a return visit all its own one day. 🇹🇷

Looking at this vineyard, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was in the middle of the French countryside - but no, it's in the heart of Paris itself! Nestling on the northern slopes of Montmartre, this private vineyard is a little-known gem just a few hundred metres from the tourist hub of Place du Tertre. A slice of rural life in the heart of the capital...

Sunset over Tamsui (Danshui) waterfront, northwest Taiwan. A suburb of Taipei, Tamsui can be reached by metro and offers a busy waterfront, bustling Old Street and sunsets to die for... 🇹🇼

The symbol of the city, and once the world's tallest building, the 101 storeys of iconic Taipei 101 rise above the neon-lit streets. Busy and cosmopolitan, Taipei is an easy city to get around, and the blend of modern life and the country's Chinese heritage is hypnotic. 🇹🇼

The magnificent Cardo (or main street) of Roman Jerash, Jordan. Jordan's ancient heritage is incredible, and Jerash is arguably its crowning glory. 🇯🇴

Qasr al-Kharaneh, one of the desert castles east of Jordan's capital Amman, is a former caravanserai which offers surprises at every turn. Lose yourself in the atmosphere of the past, before imagining yourself as an intrepid explorer as you discover hidden corners like this overturned door. Jordan is a safe and welcoming country which is suffering a downturn in tourism because of its proximity to its troubled neighbours. Go there, and have places like this to yourself. 🇯🇴

Images of Petra, Jordan are famous the world over - but most people only know it for the spectacular Treasury. These man-made caves, located a little further along the trail that winds through the city, had many purposes including homes, burials and even water storage. 🇯🇴

Jordan's desert castles are incredible. Qasr Amra is a popular day trip from the capital Amman, but the current lack of tourists in Jordan means you could well have it almost to yourself like I did. Strung out along the main highway to Iraq, the castles are an incredible insight into the history of the region.

Tainan, in Taiwan's deep south, has more extravagant temples than I've even seen in one city. It feels like there is a colourful, ornate Buddhist or Taoist temple around every corner. I love colour, and could stare at the incredible decorations for hours!
