My Top 5: Holiday Experiences

When planning a trip away I really look into what I can do and see in the destination. I look at the holiday experiences I will have over and above the hotel and flights. I know a lot of people happily pick a really good quality hotel on the beach and will sit there and…

Death Valley – Into the frying pan

Okay so I know Death Valley is the hottest place on Earth……but I wasn’t prepared for quite how hot. I called this post ‘into the frying pan’ well that is actually no joke. In the summer of 2013 National Park rangers had to ask people to stop frying eggs on the sidewalks as they were…

New York – The unfriendly one

I could write about all the amazing things I did in New York. I could tell you about all the great things I saw too. But there is a lot of content on NYC out there and you may have already read it before. So instead I am going to tell you a little story…

When people ask me about the best place I have ever been to or the best holiday I have ever been on they are often quite surprised with my response. For my answer is normally Cyprus. Pound for Pound, Euro for Euro or Dollar for Dollar it is the best value holiday I have ever…


Lagos Nightlife – Portugal

Sometimes I arrive at a place and just fall into the lifestyle there immediately. Lagos on the Algarve is one of those places. From chilling on the beaches and coves to going out drinking stupidly strong cocktails every evening. The Lagos nightlife in the height of season is pretty chilled compared to say Magaluf or Ibiza. For…
