A Bologna B&B

Don’t judge a book…………….. A city with the oldest university in the world. Full to the brim with the young, bold and beautiful students. November in Italy is a beautiful time to visit. The sun has been shining, the skies mostly blue, with a bit of rain and it’s the perfect month to visit other…

Los Cabos, San Jose del Cabo, Cabo san Lucas, Baja California!

One destination with many names which I thought were all the same place! A destination that has been on our bucket list for quite a while, due to be taken pre-covid and the penultimate trip of ours still to be taken using travel vouchers from the 2020/2021 chaos. It’s a shame no one has paid…

A tiny review about the beautiful

Hotel Villa Ottone, Isola D’Elba, Italy

A quick review of a wonderful hotel we stayed in recently. Being lucky enough to live in Central Italy now, travelling around this beautiful country is so much more accessible for us. Whether it’s planes, trains or automobiles, or ferries, there are so many options to choose how to get around. It was a Wednesday…

Sadly, due to the new Covid testing regulations, a year long planned birthday trip for a…

Being silly in the Scilly Isles

Penzance

Returning to Penzance at 7pm after a trip to the Scilly Isles, we needed to stay over before the long drive back to London. I researched well, as usual, and found Scilly parking, a car park, offering ‘romantic’ shepherds huts that looked like they were going to be cute little huts in the middle of…

Rivalto, Tuscany

I wanted to do a review of a few of our latest discoveries in Tuscany, however as I sit here on the hotel terrace in the winter sun, with my foot strapped up, lonely but well oiled, I can only review half the places I wanted to. The good news is my Italian is improving…
