Ed's first total solar eclipse

I remember the 1999 partial solar eclipse in England, and helping our children follow Blue Peter’s clever instructions to reflect the sun’s rays onto a screen to avoid damaging eyes.

Ali's Guide to Rio de Janeiro

It has been several years since my last visit to Rio and, as I discovered, a lot has changed. Yes, there are still the iconic sights of Sugar Loaf and Corcovado but there is so much more to the city that a few days spent there only just scratches the surface.

Lizzy explores the pre-Columbian sites of Colombia

Having read a few Gabriel García Márquez novels and also the Louis de Bernières trilogy (which I like to think is very loosely set in a mythical Colombia as he was an English teacher there), I was thrilled to be heading to Colombia.
