‘Spice Voyages’ tours for connoisseurs
specialise in just-off-the-beaten-track-experiences with more than a dash of luxe.
I live between Bali, Perth, India, Morocco - & now Sri Lanka - so a Spice Voyage promises authenticity in unforgettable locations.
Discover the arts, cuisine and cultures of destinations whose rich cultures have drawn traders and travellers for two millennia along the Spice Routes from North Africa to Southern Asia.
