Halal Holidays Garner Momentum

The term “Halal” has emerged as a new trend in the world of marketing, not only as a brand, identifying the meat being slaughtered in certain ways, but also as a wider concept in the global travel industry. The literal meaning of the word Halal is “permissible” according to Islamic Law, in contrast to “Haram”, which denotes something that is forbidden. So, what is Halal and what is Haram? It is commonly used in relation to food and eating habits in accordance with the Sharia (Islamic Law). The deeper dimensions of Halal point to purity and cleanliness.

The mediaeval world of north-east Italy

Friuli-Venezia Giulia in the north-west of Italy is culturally rich from years of Austrian, Hungarian, Greek and Roman traditions. This is partly due to its location being neighbours with Austria in the north, Slovenia in the east whilst facing the Adriatic Sea to the south.

The rock-cut tombs of Dalyan

The rock-cut tombs of Dalyan

Dalyan, on the southwest coast of Turkey, is not a beach resort but an inland town that attracts visitors due to the impressive Kaunian rock-cut tombs.

These are the mighty remains of the ancient port city of Kaunos.  It was founded in the tenth century BC, as a port city. With magnificent temple tombs cut high on the face of the rocky mountains ( to properly enjoy the sight, take a boat trip) you can drive to the highest point on the cliffs, which used to be a gateway to the city’s harbour. From here you see Dalyan River on one side and Suluklu Lake on the other.

A day in … Miltenberg

A day in … Miltenberg

Travel about 75 kilometres from Frankfurt is a south easterly direction and you will arrive in the Bavarian town of Miltenberg.

This charming town has a history that goes back to pre-Roman times and, originally, was just a narrow strip of land between the Main River and the Greinberg Mountain.  Needless to say it flooded regularly but the town survived although it barely grew until centuries later when flood precaution measures were put into place.

Exploring the Old Medina in Fez, Morocco

Exploring the Old Medina in Fez, Morocco

From the moment I arrived in Fez, Morocco’s second-largest city after Casablanca, I felt I had entered into a completely different history and culture.

Fez largely consists of two old medina quarters, Fes el Bali and Fes Jdid, and the modern section of Ville Nouvelle with its palm-tree-lined boulevards, built in the French colonial era.

The walled medina, with its bustling souks and old-world ambience, is the jewel of the city. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the best-preserved medinas in the world.

Sofitel Frankfurt Opera Hotel

Sofitel Frankfurt Opera Hotel

In any city or importance and size like Frankfurt, there will always be a range of accommodation to suit every type and pocket. Finding one that provides a little bit more than a standard hotel normally offers takes some hunting. I am not talking about extra pillows or sheets made from the finest Egyptian cotton but ambience and history.

I was quite pleased when I booked into the luxurious Sofitel Frankfurt Opera and found links with probably the most famous German writer of all, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
