Mediterranean travel guide

med-travelFrom the snow-capped Alps in the north to the sun drenched coastal villages of the south, mediterranean unfolds like an ancient tapestry.
Its cooks compose mediterranean dishes from a palette of exotic spices that may leave a lingering taste of aniseed.
At times threadbare and fading, the land stretches from desert dunes and scattered slums to the rich embroidery of ancient, jewelled palaces, and the majestic domes of forgotten empires.
Since the first civilisations rose on the banks mediterranean has given birth to many religions, been touched by the Empire of Alexander the Great,
seen the ancient empires rise and fall, and has traded with Caesars.
Mediterranean is a feast for the senses; where the air is heavy with the scent of jasmine and dancers trail frenetic melodies in colourful silk saris.
In mediterranean cities, the stench of slum living competes with the cacophony of seemingly endless traffic and a myriad of other textures, colours and movements all jostling for your attention.
