A Pillar of Hercules, the Rock of Gibraltar stands guard where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic. Casablanca is a portal on the mystique surrounding North African shores. Funchal and St Peter Port, two contrasting yet equally charming island capitals, and the Azores – formed in an explosion of seawater, pillow lava, fire and brimstone – gloriously isolated and seemingly on the ‘Edge of the World’.
