Tenerife: Sun, Sea And Total Relaxation

The last time I ventured overseas for a week of relaxation was September 2014. While I've worked hard and been lucky to have a couple of breaks overseas since, it's been far too long since I spent the day doing nothing by the pool. And I really enjoy lazying by the pool doing nothing. And [...]

The wanderers return! We were quite late booking our holiday this year, as it's been quite a hectic summer. My brother just got married, so we've had hen dos, stag dos, dress fittings, nail appointments, hair appointments and goodness knows what else in preparation for the big event! We've had the time for a holiday [...]
