As part of my week long holiday to Crete we spent a morning touring the beautiful island of Spinalonga. The island has always been a bit of a tourist attraction for this part of Greece, but with the publication of The Island by Victoria Hislop in 2011 more and more people seem to be visiting. … More Spinalonga

Crete, Part 1

I have recently returned from one of the most beautiful Greek Islands, Crete. There is so much to talk about that I’m going to split this out over a few different blogs so please do come back to read more about beautiful Greece. The first thing I want to talk about is the hotel. We … More Crete, Part 1

Weekend in France

As I mentioned previously on the blog my parents live in France in the Poitou-Charante region. We managed to get some cheap flights via an easyJet sale and it only cost the two of us £80 return. At that price it’s rude not to go isn’t it? The actual journey for us to get to … More Weekend in France

Koh Samui

Thailand isn’t somewhere I have ever previously considered visiting, I’m not a fan of beach holidays and prefer more active orientated holidays involving rollercoasters but here I found myself on a plane heading to the paradise island of Koh Samui for a weeks beach holiday.

But, as promised on my previous annual review post I am backdating this post to tell you all about the magic of Asia. It wasn’t somewhere I ever saw myself visiting. … More Japan

Well after 10 years of doing nothing we decided to treat ourselves this year and booked New Years in Disneyland Paris. And to make it extra special booked the Disneyland Hotel. This … More Disneyland Paris

Memories of 2016

The end of January is rapidly approaching and I can’t help but feel that I have achieved nothing so far this year, of course there are valid reasons for this. Both myself and my husband have been struck down by consecutive colds and after a busy December we wanted to take time out and relax. … More Memories of 2016


So 2016 was a big year for me in my relationship with my husband; we hit a major milestone of 10 years since we first started dating. He proposed on our 5 year anniversary and I decided I wanted to do something special for the 10 years together so booked a trip away to Amsterdam. … More Amsterdam
