When we decided to go back to Italy this year for a holiday, I don’t think even we imagined how amazing it would. We love Italy, be it the bustling streets of Rome to the more sedate wanderings around the porticoes of Bologna. Previously we’ve been to Italy on short breaks but this time, we just went for it, 3 weeks of Italian bliss where we managed to walk 300km over the course of the holiday and see so much of this beautiful country (I’m slightly sad this way, I wore my pedometer everywhere!). I just want to share some […]
While in the UK this summer we booked a week away in Bath so we could go have a look around the beautiful English countryside and take in some of the local sights, mainly Bath City, Stonehenge, Old Sarum and a little hike up Solsbury Hill just across from where we were staying in Batheaston. Bath is such a gorgeous place to visit, very picturesque and to be honest, I went a bit mad with the camera. I’ve been choosing from over 300 photos for this one post, so I think these are the best of the best! Thankfully, we […]
Now we’re into December (where has this year gone??) it’s probably time to start thinking about what we want to do or achieve in 2013, be it travel, family, work or play, so I’m thinking of a few ideas before the 31st so I get a bit of a head start in planning a few memorable treats for the upcoming year. Family Time. I know I don’t spend enough time with my family and in this last year we’ve taken steps to increase our “family time” which has been a wonderful change to our lifestyle. The addition of Skype has […]
It seems that everywhere I look just now there is a Christmas based theme, the shops have stocked up on their festive chocolates, wines, decorations & selection boxes and the Christmas lights are appearing in the town centre and neighbours are already wondering if it’s too early to put up the Christmas tree! So it seems that when it comes to Christmas time, what better way to get in the festive spirit than a trip to a traditional Christmas Market. There were so many across Europe that I narrowed it down to my favourite 6, otherwise this post would never […]
Looking for a great holiday that won’t leave you penniless? Then Glamping may be the travel inspiration for you!
I only just heard the term “Glamping” today when I saw this gorgeous site next to Loch Ness in Scotland. Glamping, is luxury camping… such a cute term! We’re planning on heading back up to Edinburgh next summer and if I’m in that vicinity anyways… well it would just be rude not to give this a go. I posted a few weeks back that I’ve taken a real interest in “Tiny Houses” and this is just a great way of sampling the premise of small living areas. It also helps that these particular armadilla’s are beautifully furnished and so close […]
Travel Inspiration – Karlovy Vary (Casino Royale Location) a gorgeous location for a long weekend break
I am so suggestible! I watched Casino Royale the other day… I had been holding off as I just can’t quite get my head around Daniel Craig being Bond (it will always be Sean for me!) but I thought I would give it a go and although I’m still not 100% convinced on Daniel as Bond, he’s not terrible… I’m going to watch Quantum of Solace this week so I may make a definitive decision one way or another! But what I did LOVE about Casino Royale was the location (supposedly Montenegrom but actually Karlovy Vary in the Czech Republic), […]
