Bai Tram Hideaway, Vietnam


The first month of 2016 is almost over; well done all for battling through dreary January! Here at i-escape towers, we’ve been using this time to plan ahead, looking to February winter-sun escapes (stay tuned), Easter family breaks, and long, lazy summer getaways both à deux and en famille. There’s a lot to look forward to, and the web has been a hive of news and inspiration. Here’s what caught our eye this month…

Lucy Williams brought us her captivating accounts of tiger spotting and camel trekking in Rajasthan.

We’ve just added 10 more travel tomes to our reading list.

This multi-functional and stylish tote bag is the perfect travel companion – now to choose our signature shade…

Ben Lerwill took us all on a fascinating journey through the Northwest Loop of Vietnam.

Adventurer Henry Worsley tragically died during his solo attempt to cross Antarctica this month – find out more about his inspiring endeavours via his fundraising page.

We marvelled at the Northern Lights from space… stunning!

These fantastic photo apps got our creative juices flowing.

Courtney Adamo and her beautiful brood are on a year-long family adventure, and we were thrilled when they stayed at one of our all-time Uruguay favourites.

Back in November, WOW air announced great-value routes from Bristol to North America (via Iceland), launching in May 2016 – being Bristol-based, we can’t wait to get involved!
