The Blue Danube

By |2018-08-30T23:12:13+00:00August 30th, 2018|Cruising, Europe|

From the Black Forest in Germany to the Black Sea in Romania, the Danube flows and meanders “sparkling blue”, through fabulous European cities and countryside – farms, vineyards, and little villages. The Danube took me from Budapest in Hungary, to Nuremberg in Germany, and through other countries on the way, Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia, [...]

Mamma Mia! Here I go again!

By |2018-06-18T18:30:48+00:00June 15th, 2018|Europe|

Island Hopping in the Greek Islands! Sounds so exciting and I was off to “hop” to three of the twenty four unspoilt islands of Alonissos, Skopelos and Skiathos which make up the Sporades Archipelago. It was an easy journey from Gatwick to Skiathos with Enter Air. All very smooth and the staff were extremely friendly [...]

The Arctic

If you’re looking for a holiday that’s different – you couldn’t get any more different than a visit to the Arctic. No flip flops, bikinis or strappy tops – this holiday is furs, fleece and thermal underwear! But the air is crisp and fresh, skies are clear and blue – and there is so much [...]

Looking for a City break that's a bit different? Why not try Bulgaria's beautiful capital Sofia, set at the foot of the Vitosha mountain.  We found prices to be very reasonable despite the recent devaluation of the pound.  We stayed at the Crystal Palace Boutique Hotel near to the main places of interest just a short walk from [...]
