When heading on my two-week adventure to Italy, exploring cities including Florence, Rome, Venice and Bologna, I did not think that the rural area of Umbria would be the region that became my highlight. As the sea and the beach are usually my top priorities when going on a holiday, I was surprised how quickly I fell in love with the land-locked region of Umbria. But the medieval hilltop towns, picturesque rolling countryside, authentic and historic culture, food and people completely compensated for the lack of sand and won over my beach-loving heart instantly.

Here are my tips on where to go and what to do in Umbria depending on whether you're looking for an active or relaxing holiday, or why not do a bit of both…

As a real foodie I was extremely excited at the opportunity of travelling to Sri Lanka on my recent research trip to sample first hand some of their culinary delights such as hoppers and curries, and I was not disappointed.

Having previously been to Thailand twice before, I presumed that I had already experienced most of what the country has to offer. However, on my recent trip to the self-claimed 'nation of smiles', my presumptions were proved highly incorrect (as most often they are).
