Wherever you go, go with all your heart – Confucius

N and I travel a few times every year and, when we do, we're always on the look out for a great place to stay that isn't... well... expensive.  Enter in Airbnb, a fantastic website where you can not only look for places to stay all over the world but also list your property for … Continue reading Wherever you go, go with all your heart – Confucius

‘You’re sayin’ the FBI’s gonna pay me to learn to surf?’

Ahhh, Point Break... so classy, so Keanu. I'm here... I've got my (homemade) hot cocoa and I'm hanging on by a thread... but I'm here.  You don't want to hear about the wall of fatigue, the dizzy spells that are more constant than not, the stomach problems... so I won't go there.  Suffice to say I … Continue reading ‘You’re sayin’ the FBI’s gonna pay me to learn to surf?’

Jim Beam American Stillhouse

We're on our last day here in KY which means a lot of frantic packing, weighing suitcases, repacking, re-weighing (wash, rinse, repeat ad infinitum) and so on.  Yesterday, before the panic of realisation that we'd done nothing packing-wise kicked in the hubs, my grandparents and I ventured down the road to Clermont, Kentucky, to take … Continue reading Jim Beam American Stillhouse

Just another day in paradise…

I’m finally getting around to writing a post I’m sure you’re all dying to read… a review of our holiday last month!  And if you’re not dying to read about it it’s only because you’re jealous. This was my second time staying at Riu Palace Tres Islas and my husband's billionth (he's been going with … Continue reading Just another day in paradise…
