Visiting London after 6 years. Here you can find train prices from Gatwick, where to get your SIM card real cheap and where to stay if you are looking for a luxury family hotel, in the heart of Mayfair.

For 10 nights we had been moving consistently around Ireland. From East to West, West to South, South to North and then we finally found ourselves heading back to Galway. Thankfully we found ourselves in the middle of the Irish countryside in a sweet litt…

Despite not having any kids or husband to wake me up in the morning I still had a reasonably early morning – bummer! I was able to get dressed so quickly without two little ones to dress and a husband to hurry. That was relatively novel, but I missed thei…

Hidden in the Gothic walls of the ancient city a bellman rushed to our aid welcoming us to the Mercer Hotel Barcelona. The Mercer Hotel is a 5 star luxury indulgence. The building was built on an ancient Roman defence tower dating back to 1st century AD. …

Tea & Scones, walking tour in Westport, cycling the coast, a warm place for home & eating overload! My first day without the family visiting the Wild Atlantic Way West, do you think I survived?

As soon as the plane touched down on the tarmac in Dublin, the sense of anticipation started growing. We were going to our first travel blogging conference, TBEX, and also exploring a country we had wanted to visit for a very long time. And we had found t…

Villa San Michele began life in the 15th century as a Franciscan monastery, featuring a stunning façade design attributed to Michelangelo. Today it is one of Europe’s most beautiful and iconic hotels. It is easy to see why most guests refer to it as heave…

When you have a flight leaving Turkey and heading to Italy, it could be considered exciting. But I wasn’t flying to Italy. I was flying into my parent’s arms. Take joy in my happy reunion and check out our stay in Civitavecchia, Italy.

It required a bit of courage, a touch of daredevil and a dash of insanity. But finally we had driven through Positano and traversed the narrow road towards to the top of Praiano and reached our destination – Hotel Margherita.

If our previous stay in Alacati was the hidden gem that only locals know, then Oludeniz is the unhidden gem that all the British know about. I don’t think we’ve seen so many folks from the UK (outside Australia), than in this one town. Blimey!

Guatemala is full of rich history and culture that adults will find astounding, but what about the kids? We spent a day walking the streets with our little Princess, but here are all the things she wished she could have done that day.

During our visit to Istanbul we made the smart choice of staying 5 nights at the Eresin Crown Hotel which, for us, has set the benchmark on luxury hotels.

During our trip to Turkey, we had the pleasure of staying at the fabulous Taskonaklar Hotel for 3 nights, nestled in Ucister, the highest point in the region of Cappadocia. Home to dozens and dozens of hot air balloons silently floating in the clear sky a…

Bear cave? Bat cave? Cavemen? Any preconceived ideas on caves will be blown out of the water. There are no animals, semi-humanoid species or superheroes in these caves, but you may find Russell Crowe or TWB.

It’s not very often we are so shocked by our own misconceptions of a town. Clearly, we didn’t know about the surprise that awaited us in Nazareth.

I’ll admit it. I made the classic traveller’s mistake of not doing enough research before visiting a new town, in this case, Mitzpe Ramon. Erin already had done her reading and knew exactly what to expect, but I was in the dark. This was going to be the b…

After a rough few days the royal treatment was just what we needed and where else could we expect that then in Eilat, on the Red Sea, at the Hilton. You won't believe the temperature though...

We have never stayed in a hostel. Not in my time travelling as a solo. Not in my time travelling as a couple. And never with kids. In my mind hostels are roaches and thin mattresses, drunken people making too much noise and shady characters stealing your …

Our introduction to Israel. Where we stayed, what we drove, what we ate & a few minor details, like bacon, sleeveless tops and shop-free-zone Saturday.
