Thermae Bath Spa Review

On the last weekend of November my friends and I spent the weekend in Bath. We booked earlier in the year with the intention of exploring the Bath Christmas Market. You can read all about the Bath Christmas Market on my blog here. A few days before we went, my friends sent me a message asking if I’d like to go to the Thermae Bath Spa during our weekend away.

Bath Christmas Market 2018

Last weekend, myself and a few friends spent the weekend in Bath. We booked to go early in the year so that we could explore the Christmas markets, and we weren’t disappointed. This was my first trip to Bath and I have to say that it’s such a beautiful place. I really can’t wait to go back there again. The Bath Christmas Market started on the 22nd November and the last day is the 9th December. It’s a shame that it’s not on a little longer, but if you do get the chance to go before it finishes, I highly… [Read More]

Things to do and see in Paris

Paris is one of my most favourite cities in the world. I visited when I was a teenager, and loved exploring the city. Paris has so much to offer to any type of traveller. As a teenager I loved nothing more than walking around, getting lost and just exploring all the different sites on offer. Last year my family and I also visited Disneyland Paris for the first time. We loved it so much that we returned again earlier this year for Superhero season. Paris really does offer so much. Whether it’s a romantic city break for two, a solo… [Read More]

Review: Hotel Victoria Playa, Menorca (2018)

Three years ago my husband, and our twin girls went on holiday with my step son and mother in law to Santo Tomas, Menorca. We booked an all inclusive holiday with Thomson, and stayed in the Victoria Playa Hotel. You can read my review from 2015 here. This year we decided to return as a family of four as we had fond memories of our last trip. Our flight was early which was great as it meant we arrived at our hotel around 11am and checked into our room straight away. Our room had two double beds in. We moved… [Read More]

A Scottish Adventure

Like many people I have a bucket list. Although, I have to be honest and say that I’m not keen on calling it a bucket list, but rather just a list of things I’d like to do in life. That way if I don’t manage to do them all, that’s ok! I don’t have a time limit on when I plan to do these things, and not even 100% sure that I’ll ever get around to doing them all, but it’s nice to have goals! I have quite a varied range of things on my list. From writing a book… [Read More]

Seeking some winter sun

For the majority of us Brits summer means holidays, but have you ever thought about going on holiday in the winter? This year, my husband and I have been very lucky to have enjoyed two holidays. They were both very different holidays! The first was a trip to Disneyland Paris, which was very magical indeed, and the second was an all inclusive week in Minorca. Both were very enjoyable holidays. However, now that summer is almost over and winter is fast approaching, I’m feeling the need for another holiday! Going on holiday in winter may seem strange to some, but… [Read More]

Getting the best deal on your next holiday

As a family, we’ve been very lucky to have two holidays abroad this year. The first was back in June when we went to Disneyland Paris, and the second was earlier month when we went to Menorca. Now, I’d like to point out that this isn’t a regular occurrence for us. We usually have just the one holiday, so I think it’s fair to say it’s been a truly good year in terms of holidays for us. Sadly the beginning of the year wasn’t great. My husband had a number of health scares, and ended up in and out of… [Read More]
