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 [...]

This is a story for all you Doubting Thomases out there! It’s about a pilgrimage to Fatima Fatima is in Portugal, about an hour from Lisbon and Lisbon is an easy (and cheap) flight from Gatwick with Easyjet.

When I go on holiday… I love to get going! Don’t you just hate to hang about all day for an evening flight? So I was pleased with the early start from Heathrow and to be in snowy Kiruna, 200kms inside the Arctic Circle, in time for lunch! There are dog sled transfers from the airport but I arrived at [...]
