Visit to Malta

We booked a trip to Malta eight days before we flew having not done much research but liked the look of the location, hotel and the price.

We booked our last minute getaway through TUI (previously Thomson). Our deal included the hotel, flights, transfers, breakfast and evening meal. We did a quick search of what temperatures were expected in December and so we packed a variety of clothing. Continue reading Visit to Malta

Visit to Cornwall

We have visited Cornwall twice now and stayed near St Ives.

Cornwall is absolutely stunning. The beaches are beautiful and if you are lucky to get nice weather, they have quite a tropical look to them with aqua coloured water.

Cornwall is an amazing place to explore, relax, play and have fun. There is a lot of history and some places, streets and buildings have a very atmospheric feel to them.

Below are some images of our previous stays.

Visit to New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia

I went to America in 2007 by myself to visit some friends and stayed with one of them in New Jersey.

During my ten day stay, I explored the city of New York by commuting in from New Jersey, visited Philadelphia and also New Hope.

I also visited Belmar beach which was a glorious 94 degrees at 10am in the morning!

During my stay, we went to see Maroon 5 at Madison Square Garden as well as doing all the usual touristy things!

Below is a gallery of some images during my stay.

Visit to Greece

We went to Kefalos, Greece in 2012. We stayed at the Pantheon, a studio apartment complex at the top of a hill which provided us with beautiful views.

We went in August and the weather was scorching hot. This allowed us to spend a week relaxing by the pool, lazing on the beach and indulging in fabulous food and a cold beer or two!

We hired a car whilst we were there and drove around the island which was a great way to see more of the sights.

We also swam out to the island in the sea, climbed the rocks and rang the bell in the church which is a bit of a tradition.

Below are some photos of our week in Greece.
