Where Will You Go?

136 Days, 59 Destinations, 1 Unique Journey

History buffs will want to write home about Hiroshima. Despite being devastated in 1945, this Japanese city is known to all for its commitment to peace. A walk in the leafy boulevards of Peace Memorial Park brings quiet contemplation.


Advanced, airy and elevated, Singapore is a spectacular, futuristic vision of utopian city life. Once a quiet fishing village, now a glistening island city-state and an international beacon of science, education
and technology.

A chaotic, colossal collision of east and west – start your day in Europe and end it in Asia, all without breaking a sweat. Sprawling across two continents, the city has been toed, froed and yanked between countless civilisations over its history.


Few can resist the grand beauty of Amsterdam’s famous canals, which thread through this place of evocative beauty and thrilling contrast. Open-minded and tolerant, Amsterdam is a place for history buffs and hedonists alike, and its diverse neighbourhoods have something for everyone – whether it’s the beachside relaxation of Bloemendaal, nocturnal thuds of Buiksloterham, or characterful charm of Jordaan.


Emerald spires puncture the sky across Sweden’s alluring capital, a leafy place of history, culture and waterfront perfection. Innovative and inventive, Stockholm is a city looking to the future, but with a firm grip of its envied past.

Historic yet revolutionary, few places embody the American dream quite as well as Boston – and you’ll feel the strong independent streak, and pride in the founding ideals of freedom and independence wherever you go.
