Thursday 22 August – starting the holiday in style!
Thanks to our Amex credit card and June’s previous work travel we get to use the BA Lounge at Heathrow and travel business class on the upper deck of the plane to Nairobi. Champagne and gin cocktails – don’t mind if we do!
We arrived a couple of days … Read more
For the past few years we have tried to do something a little different when going away.
This year I booked a Shepherd’s Hut near Wells in Somerset.

Usual departure routine with Bob leaving home at lunchtime, June leaving work at 5pm and meeting up again at Ashford International railway station. A quick trip down the motorway soon saw us at Eurotunnel for our crossing to Calais. Luckily this time we had already decided to go no further than Citie Europe as the trains were all … Read more

Overnight flight from London to Buenos Aires – a long 13+ hours but with it taking off just as we would normally go to bed and having the extra space of emergency exit seats, we both managed some sleep.

All booked, June had no idea … Read more
As we may have mentioned once or twice before, we love Morocco and we love Marakech! So when looking for a few days away it wasn’t difficult decision as to where to go and then to return to a Riad we have used before.
Dar Rocmarra is ideally located inside the medina walls and is a real gem – a … Read more
Our next trip is back to Marracech. We love this beautiful city. It’s a full on assault on all your senses.
Another early Easyjet departure but a smooth flight, a short train ride and we were in our hotel in Berlin by lunchtime. Having hoped for real Winter weather we were a little disappointed to find Berlin was experiencing the same mild grey days as London. Still it was dry so no complaints really especially as it stayed that way for … Read more
With basic flights from Gatwick to Malpensa at around £50 return this was always going to be a good trip away with friends….
Having finally sorted out the hire car (and you think you’ve done everything from here….but that’s another story), we drove along the beautiful Como lake side roads directly to the B&B Miralago Bellagio . I guess this … Read more
