Pienza & Bagno Vignoni, Tuscany

We came away for a little snippet of relaxation, it was the other half’s birthday and his sister had come to stay for a week so we decided to take him on a magical mystery tour and started off in Bagno Vignoni with a population of only 300 people. A medieval village in San Quirico…

Cairo Chaos!

One of busiest cities in world. and definitely the busiest city I’ve ever visited. With a population of almost 22 million in Cairo and the outskirts, no wonder! The history of the City is almost 4500 years old, and there’s a lot of it, and it’s fascinating. But, 24 hours was more than enough time…

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!

A Lavish Lighthouse Stay

Around this time of year (early December), we usually go on a mini adventure to celebrate the OH’s birthday. It’s normally a surprise, and I had planned a trip back to Iceland in search of the Northern Lights (again!). Sadly, due to the new Covid testing regulations, a year long planned birthday trip for a…

Being silly in the Scilly Isles

When we told our friends where we were going, some laughed, some said ‘wow’ and some said how Scilly. (See what I did there?!) We were there early June 2017, so bare in mind things may have changed since then. We didn’t really know what to expect. One thing is for sure, we were blown…
