Summer Reads 2016

When the holiday countdown begins, the search begins for books to read while spending lazy days lounging by the pool or in the garden soaking up the sun. It can be tempting to dust off the books from last year and pull them out for their annual showing, because I hate wasting suitcase space taking… Continue reading Summer Reads 2016

Hotel Review, Majorca

TRYP Palma Bellver, Palma

On our recent trip to Palma, we wanted the best of both worlds - interesting city break and lazy days lounging by the pool.

Berlin Welcome Card

Windsor and the surrounding areas are lovely, so we weren’t too concerned about… Continue reading Monkey Island Afternoon Tea

Hotel Review, Oxford

Crowne Plaza Heythorp Park, Oxford

A weekend away with the family is always lovely, and when you’re actually spending the weekend at a spa hotel in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside it’s twice as nice. And I’m talking no signal on your phone kind of countryside, which is fine until you’re lost and realise you can’t access Google Maps… Continue reading Crowne Plaza Heythorp Park, Oxford
