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.

About me – Our Portugal vacation

We love Portugal and this is the third time we have been. We have a relaxing week of sun, sea and sand.

We also love to explore the coves, swim in the ocean, watch the sunrise, go for walks and soak up the atmosphere of the beauty Portugal has to offer by exploring the surrounding areas and taking day trips to the villages and towns nearby.

When we went to Portugal in 2015, I blogged about how you can “Keep up the vintage whilst on Vacation.” You can read that blog feature by clicking here.

Below are some pictures of our lovely week in the sun from our trip this year. There is also a video below of the view from our hotel balcony and one of the waves crashing on the shore when we visited the beach for early morning meditation at sunrise.

If you have never been to Portugal you really must plan a visit. It is a beautiful place to go on holiday and we will be going for many years to come, making those memories!
