Ljubljana City Break

Ljubljana City Break

For a while now, after seeing pictures of this beautiful city, I have been longing to visit Ljubljana. One day earlier this year I stumbled across some extremely cheap flights, so I thought why not, and went ahead and booked my Ljubljana city break.
Bath Christmas Markets

Bath Christmas Markets

0
One thing I had planned to do in December 2014 was pay a visit to the Christmas Markets in Bath, UK. Being used to visiting the markets on the continent, I had assumed that the Bath Christmas Markets would be open right up until Christmas Eve, and so I planned to visit on December 23rd. This was a big mistake on my part as the Christmas Market in Bath only ran until December 14th. This did, however, teach me a valuable lesson of the importance of thorough research before planning a trip. So this time around I did just that.
Funchal City Break

Funchal City Break

For a long time I have been intrigued by the beauty of the Portuguese island Madeira, from its striking rugged coastlines to its vibrant countryside and beautiful ornate botanical gardens. This year my birthday conveniently fell on a Saturday, so I decided to book a three night Funchal city break so I could explore this unique Island.
Turin Christmas Markets

Exploring the Turin Christmas Markets

For this years Christmas market break I wanted to try somewhere completely different to the destinations that I've visited previously. One of my friends suggested Italy and after some research I concluded that the Turin Christmas markets were the ones which I wanted to visit.
Bombay Sapphire Distillery Gin Cocktail Masterclass

Bombay Sapphire Distillery Gin Cocktail Masterclass

Anyone who knows me will know that my main passions in life are travelling, food and fine wine. I do have another guilty pleasure though, and that is Gin, so when I was asked by friends if I would like to go to a Gin cocktail masterclass at the Bombay Sapphire distillery in Laverstoke I jumped at the chance.
Venice City Break by WorldWideWill

My Winter 2018 Venice City Break

I have been to Venice many times, it's one of those places that I could return to time and time again and would always find something new to see or do. While perusing the destinations on offer in a British Airways sale last year I found a deal to Venice for £100pp for flights and hotel, and at that price I couldn't resist booking myself a cheeky Venice city break just before Christmas 2017.
Berlin City Break - Brandenburg Gate

Berlin City Break

Reflecting on all the wonderful European city break destinations that I have visited in recent years, I was surprised that Berlin was one of the destinations that I hadn’t yet visited. Just over a year ago I decided to take a trip to Berlin to visit the annual ITB Berlin travel trade show.
Life During Lockdown

Life During Lockdown

11
These are extremely turbulent times that we are all currently facing, regardless of where we are in the world. A pandemic known as COVID-19 has effected almost every part of this world, halting almost all air traffic, closing restaurants, hotels, any kind of leisure or social facility as well as all non essential shops and business, in an effort to stop the spread of the virus.
Prague Christmas Markets break 2018

Prague Christmas Market

Prague with its striking gothic architecture, ornate squares and imposing castle is famously known as Europe’s fairytale capital city, a fantastic location for a magical Christmas market. I have visited Prague a few times...
Cesky Krumlov

Cesky Krumlov – An Amazing Bohemian Trip

While I was on my recent trip to Prague I decided to visit the city of Cesky Krumlov, located in the Southern Bohemia region of the Czech Republic. Cesky Krumlov is located on the banks of the Vltava river and its 13th century gothic castle overlooks the stunning bohemian city below, now a UNESCO world heritage site.
Seville

Seville Luxury City Break

I have always regarded Seville as the rustic heart of Spain. Known for its stunning tapas, beautiful Moorish architecture, and its labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets, Seville has long been on my to-do list. So when British Airways announced a daily service from London Gatwick, I didn't hesitate in booking some flights.
Brussels Christmas Market by WorldWideWill

Brussels Christmas Market

For my main Christmas market break this year I chose to visit the Brussels Christmas Market. I chose Brussels this year because when I first visited Brussels a couple of years ago I thought that the architecture in the city centre was absolutely stunning, and that it would make the perfect setting for a Christmas market.
Corfu

Corfu, A Luxury Weekend in Greece

I stumbled across flights to Corfu whilst on the British Airways website looking for reward flight availability for a short summer getaway. Up until this point I didn't even know British Airways flew there, and when I looked into it I found out that it is one of their new routes that started in May. The 3 hr 15 min flight departs Heathrow Terminal 5, four times a week direct to Corfu.
Lisbon City Break

Lisbon the Perfect City Break !

Lisbon, the city of seven hills, has a unique character and charm, different from most European capital cities. One afternoon a few weeks ago I stumbled across a deal to a top hotel in central Lisbon, that really was too good to miss. It did not take much persuasion for me to quickly book some flights. I had long yearned to visit Lisbon and here was an ideal opportunity.
Hotel Du Vin Cambridge

My Meal and Stay at the Hotel Du Vin Cambridge

A while ago I read about a great Sunday night deal offered by Hotel du Vin, so I thought I'd give it a try. The deal allows you to book a room for the night for as little as £30, with the condition that you spend a minimum of £75 on Sunday evening in their bistro. For this trip I decided to book a stay at the Hotel du Vin Cambridge as this was the ideal location for a place that I wanted to visit in the vicinity.
Croatian Wine

Croatian Wine Tasting evening!

0
One of my local wine stores, Hennings Wine Merchants of Chichester often holds wine tastings on Friday evenings. Each evening is usually themed on a specific wine region or wine. A couple of weeks ago they held a Croatian wine evening, and after having been to Croatia a few times and enjoyed the local wines, I decided to book to go with some friends and experience more of what Croatia has to offer the wine world.
Jurassic Coast

Jurassic Coast – Dorset, UK

6
The 2005 Radio Times poll named the Jurassic Coast the fifth-greatest natural wonder of Britain. It is definitely at the top of my list, alongside Glen Coe in Scotland. The Jurassic Coast is located on the South coast of England, running 96 miles from Orcombe Point in Devon, to Old Harry Rocks near Swanage in Dorset. In 2001 the Jurassic Coast was designated a World Heritage Site, the second site in the United Kingdom.
Port

Port Tasting Porto Portugal

When you are in Porto it is highly likely that you will sample some finest Port at least once. Either with a meal or on its own, or perhaps you will make a trip to one or Porto's famous Port cellars for a professional Port tasting. This was at the top of my to-do list for my recent trip to Porto. I would recommend booking a tasting for the afternoon, perhaps after lunch.
