Dang! I was thinking this was an article about 'important' secrets like: "Who was Carly Simon referring to when she wrote YOUR SO VAIN?".

I have been to Tassia and it is simply amazing!  The people are wonderful, the food unbelievable and the location is serene and peaceful.  The daily hikes are exciting and I was able to see a huge variety of wildlife.  The guides that work at the lodge are Masaai locals and have a tremendous knowledge of the wilderness.  I learned everything from animal track identification to edible and medicinal plants in the area.  Highly, highly recommend it!

Westfjords is an adventure worth exploring. Látrabjarg cliff is the largest seabird colony in the northern Atlantic and the most western-point of   Europe. Rauðasandur beach is one of the most spectacular sites of Iceland. Check out at visitwestfjords.com

Hovingham is such a picture postcard village. Lovely to sit by the beck and watch the world go by.

Nice to see that Nepal is often quoted in international destinations despite of economic & political situations going down each day!

Garden of dreams is certainly a superb place to be in tranquility.

When in the Westfjords, during your stay in Iceland, consider visiting the Arctic Fox Center in Súðavík: http://www.arcticfoxcenter.com/

As Cathryn Drake says, the Westfjords landscape has a palpable supernatural spirit, and that's what I try to bring to life in my children's stories set in the Westfjords.

When I was a kid in Panama we got to go camping in some old spanish ruins. Loved growing up in the air force.
