What seems like an age ago, we were in Tenerife. It was beautiful, we had lots of fun escaping reality for two weeks and I’ve just about gotten over the holiday blues (where I was googling 2018 holidays for a week straight). I still want to talk about it though, so if you’re thinking of going to Tenerife, this is a post for you. Tenerife boasts a whole host of amazing attractions and according to TripAdvisor, it’s home to some of the best in the world. One of them, is Mount Tiede, an active volcano at the centre of the island. It’s marketed everywhere as a must-see attraction, and I have to say that I agree – if you are in Tenerife, you must see it.

However, as we found out during our research and subsequent visit to the volcano, there are some points that you should know before you head on out on your journey. Tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your journey and enjoy it to the very full. Hopefully, this little lot will save you some time and money along the way.

10 Reasons to Choose a Crete Villa Holiday

standard July 19, 2017 Leave a response

So we’ve just come back from our holidays – we decided eventually on an all-inclusive shindig in Tenerife, but for reasons I will get into in another post, we’ve decided that all-inclusive is not really for us. Before we decided on Tenerife, we were looking at Villas to house our huge family in a range of destinations across Europe. Needless to say, we came across some very fancy looking placed and some awesome destinations.

Crete has become a popular tourist spot for two reasons – as a luxurious holiday destination and for being a melting pot of Cretan traditions and culture. Luxury travellers prefer a Crete villa holiday as it is the epitome of class, elegance and style. Whether your chosen villa faces the beach or is located in the town, holidaying in Crete can be the experience of a lifetime.

We may not have gone with it this time, but it remains a definite contender for our next getaway: Here’s why….

How To Host The Ultimate Event

standard July 18, 2017 Leave a response

It’s summer – that means party season. With Short Rib’s Birthday shortly on the horizon, I have to get my planning hat on. Luckily, we’re not at the stage where nursery friends get invited to things (it’s coming soon, I know that) but this year, I can keep it small and that works well for me. It doesn’t mean it doesn’t take a lot of doing though…

It’s a great thing to be the life of the party, however, it’s even better to be the ‘hostess with the mostess,’ right? Somehow, the people born to host make these events seem like a breeze. There doesn’t seem to be any mishaps or rushed planning, and there’s absolutely no stress on their parts at all. The thing is, though, that the key secret to their success is built right into their personality. They are practically hard-wired for it. That doesn’t mean you could never hope to match them; it just means you need a bit more guidance.
