We had the loveliest family day out yesterday at the Volks Weald festival and getting lost in the Maize maze at the hosting venue, Penshurst Place. I had never been to a car show before, nor to Penshurst Place so it was all a bit new […]
After last years holiday with my Mum & Sister, we had every intention of booking up to go on holiday to Corfu as a couple this year… and then along came bump and with the main tourist season for the island only starting in May […]
One of the travel experiences high up on my wanderlust list is to go on a cruise. Neither me or Sean have ever been but we’ve both heard so many good things about them that it just cannot be missed off of our list of things to do before we’re thirty. Cruises offer an experience like no other and one of the things that most attracts me to them is the variety on offer during your break.
L O C A T I O N | Whether you’re cruising to the Maldives or around southern Europe, one thing you can be sure of is that you’ll probably wake up in a different picturesque destination each day offering you the opportunity to see and explore an array of coastlines, attractions and more that you might not have the chance to see on a package holiday.
C U L T U R E | Visiting more than just one part of a country or continent means you get to experience some of the amazingly diverse cultures across the world, each a chance to learn something new about a place or the people who live there.
F O O D | From burger bars to five star restaurants, most cruise ships are home to a whole host of different restaurants and menu offerings with delicacies from all over the world.
E N T E R T A I N M E N T | No body could ever get bored on a cruise! Whether you’re travelling alone, as a couple, with a group of friends or with your children there is normally something on offer to keep everybody entertained. It’s not all cabarets and booze ups you know! Activities like snorkelling, bowling, swimming and sunbathing are just some of the things you can expect to do.
Have you ever been on a cruise? I would love to hear all about your trip!
I mentioned before we went away that I quite liked the idea of delving into some real Corfiot culture by taking a trip out of Acharavi and into Corfu Town. At a meeting with our Thomas Cook rep the day after we arrived we discovered that […]
As some of you will probably know, I recently went on Holiday to Corfu with my Mum & Sister. We booked last minute (well, three weeks in advance) through Thomas Cook and weren’t really sure what to expect from this little island, aside from more […]
The last eight weeks have been really quite shitty what with being in hospital, recovery taking longer than I expected and an unexpected change in my circumstance so it’s fair to say I’ve been in need of a bit of a pick me up. Mum & Libby have been talking about booking a last minute holiday for a while now, and they planned to head off into sunshiney paradise the same week that Mr is set to take on the Three Peaks Challenge which would have left me at home looking after Pup and becoming super acquainted with the local Chinese Takeaway lady. However, now that I’m back to working from home for a while, my schedule has become so much more flexible and I don’t have to worry about booking time off and fitting into everyone else’s calendar which meant that when Mum asked me if I wanted to head off to Corfu with them a little earlier than they’d planned for I couldn’t damn well turn them down could I?
In under three weeks time we’ll be heading to Acharavi, a picturesque town on the North coast of Corfu and staying in a little family run hotel called Kamari. The last time just us three girls went on holiday was in 2011 when we flew to Rhodes for a week so I am so so excited to be able to explore somewhere new and sip cocktails by the pool with them on our little girly break away.
I’ve had a few recommendations of must see places so I’ve added them to our itinerary with highlights including a trip into Corfu town, a boat trip around the island and a wander around Kassiopi.
Have you ever been to Corfu? If you have any recommendations for things to do or things we must see please pop a them in the comments below.
You might have seen on twitter over Easter that Mr ventured off for a weekend of Mountain Climbing in an attempt to complete the three peaks challenge. Faced with the prospect of spending Easter on my Lonesome, I had planned things to keep me busy over […]
Back in September we spent a long weekend in an old childhood haunt of mine with Sean’s family. Hayling island is a small island off of the south coast of England, in Hampshire. I used to go there with my parents when I was younger […]
