Orlando is famous for the Disney attractions and a nightlife zone the size of Manchester. Together they attract British holidaymakers in droves. Yet, I couldn't help wondering whether the region of Orlando and Kissimmee is a destination in its own right?
The telephone rang in my bedroom at the Bon Sol hotel. It was my travel companion. "I've just been to the gym" he informed me. "Now I am having breakfast at the beachside restaurant. Come quickly its gorgeous out here"
It's not easy to pay attention to those boring safety in-flight videos. But here's one that you won't want to miss.
Fitness guru Richard Simmon gets flight attendants to dance down the aisle in Air New Zealands safety video. Watch as the camp workout enthusiast clad in sequiined vest and teeny shorts combines the safety regulations with an excercise class called Fit to Fly.
This autumn, the Grand will be revered as the third structure in Brighton and Hove to be recognised by the Walk of Fame committee. A ceremonial plaque will be unveiled in Brighton Marina in its honour.
Love is one thing, and passion quite another. And when both are present, life can seem like a honeymoon. Alas, it's inevitable that the time will come in a couple's relationship when passions wane and the dimming embers need to be fanned into life. I suggest you find somewhere romantic to do this and I believe that I found the perfect place.
Seduced by the ancient cult history of godly love of Cyprus, we flew to Lanarka airport. From there, we taxied to Pissouri about an hour away - a peaceful but burgeoning hill-top village perched half way between Limassol (Lemesos) and Paphos.
'I'm afraid I can't land the plane," announced the pilot. "Because there are animals on the runway."
We had left Nairobi's Wilson airport 45 minutes earlier on a 13-seat Safari Link plane but no one minded the short delay circling the skies before touchdown at Kenya's Masai Mara because we were enjoying the floor show below.
The runway was a strip of mown field and we had a bird's eye view of the loitering zebras and giraffes who were being shooed away.
Landing was smooth and we were met by the drivers of the waiting trucks from our hosts from a tour company called &Beyond.
Ostend enjoyed its heyday in the 1950s, '60s and early 70s but - like the clothes, furniture and hairstyles of the period - it is making something of a comeback. And with LD Lines offering a new direct ferry service from the UK, autumn - or spring - is a great time to acquaint yourself with the Flemish seaside city that was a favourite of Belgium's kings, Leopold I and II.
It was a warm, sunlit day in the cathedral city of Reims, France's Coronation City, in the Marne region of Champagne Ardenne. But inside it was a cool 10 degrees with 85 per cent humidity, the lights were dim, Je t'aime - the song Radio 1 banned for being too sexy, remember? - was playing. Above me were a bas relief of frolicking naked cherubs, and at the bottom of the stairs was Silus, a Frenchman, waiting to take me into a room full of guitar-playing finches.
It's barely a year old but may have the best location on the fringe of the Old City in the 19th-century Mamilla neighbourhood.
The hotel itself is nothing if not modern. Designed by Moshe Safdie, it blends seamlessly with its environment, built with gorgeous Jerusalem stone as is the shopping centre it is attached to. Interior décor is minimalist and contemporary and filled with Herman Miller, Kartell and Cassina furnishings.
The Somme, in Picardy, is the spiritual home of First World War I tourism; a place where descendants of fallen soldiers go to find the graves of their father, uncle or grandfather, or parties of schoolchildren are taken on educational trips.
So entrenched is the Somme in its Great War provenance, that the area is an unlikely destination for holiday-makers in search of fun and frolics, but that doesn't mean it isn't a beautiful area of France to visit - even without the pull of history.
Benedict Bermange has been counting the days to the start of the new cricket season.
Now that it's in full swing, he is wowing commentators such as Mike Atherton, Nasser Hussain and David Gower with his knowledge of facts and figures.
The Sky Sports cricket statistician is helping them answer questions such as: "How many dot balls in the last five overs?", "When was the last boundary?", "How many overs has Flintoff bowled in this spell?" (And all that without even batting an eyelid).
Leeds-born playwright Richard Jackson and the C54 Theatre Company he founded in 2006 are on tour with their latest theatrical offering - Served.
The one-man show, which stars Mr Jackson and is directed by co-founder Natasha James, comprises four characters: an unemployed man, an elderly man grieving his wife, another who moved from Leeds to London, and a coffee shop owner. The play ends with an interesting twist.
Graduates need not be disturbed by the lack of jobs around - they should just carry on tweeting.
Recruiter Ben Rosen, 34, says that their best chance of success is to keep doing what comes naturally to them: hanging out on social media websites. He tells People: "Social media could be the way forward for some. It is a new industry that raises a company's profile and young people know how to do it anyway. Many already blog, have Facebook accounts and tweet. They can turn their pastime into a profession."
Agnes Grunwald-Spier owes her life to someone she has never met. As a baby, she was lucky enough to be saved from death by an unknown Nazi official.
Now, some 70 years later, Ms Grunwald-Spier is promoting her book, The Other Schindlers: Why Some People Chose to Save Jews in the Holocaust (The History Press, £14.99), to raise awareness of the unsung gentile heroes of the Holocaust who were driven by their conscience to save Jews.
v Like your art provocative? Then you'll appreciate the photographs that comprise the world of Toothville - they've got plenty of bite.
Dentist Ian Davis has combined his photography hobby with his profession as a dentist to produce a series of conceptual images of teeth, which he has named Toothville. Dr Davis tells People: "If teeth were the size of a house or a car, the images show how they would be treated."
Started less than a year ago, Dr Davis's work has already been featured widely in publications such as Metro and Young National Geographic, as well as on the BBC website.
