Travel Photo Friday: Perfection in March

Today's photo just makes me feel like I'm about to head to the beach for the day....I wish! You might think it was taken in the summer months, but it was actually a March day. You can almost hear the gentle breeze blowing the plants on the beach, and hear the waves rolling in. Many photos these days are altered with the use of mobile phone camera apps, but these colours are genuine, and that shows just how nice a day it was!

I'd love to see photos that you've taken that have turned out perfectly without the use of an app. If you have one photo you'd like to share with me, then please get in touch - details of how to do that can be found here on my contact page.

Flashback Friday: Barbados

Regular readers of my blog will know that the Caribbean island of Barbados is one of my favourite places to visit in the whole world. Today's photo was taken on Crane Beach - one of the most beautiful beaches with sand so white and powdery it's like talcum powder....no really......I'm not joking!

If you'd like to read about one of the beautiful boutique hotels on the island that I'd highly recommend, then click here.

Epic views at Ladera Resort, St. Lucia

Have you ever come across a photo that makes you go "WOW"? I did just that when I saw the incredible views from the Ladera Resort, St Lucia. 

If you're looking for a place to relax, then you want extraordinary views - and the views of the Piton Mountains (two volcanic plugs, and the most photographed landmark on the island) are quite simply extraordinary! 

The view of Ladera resort itself is also amazing. As it's the only one to be located on the UNESCO World Heritage Site, it has been built very sympathetically, to blend in with the lush forest that surrounds it.

Each bedroom is built with only three walls, which mean you can enjoy the view at any time of day; whether it be waking up at sunrise, or enjoying the spectacular sunsets.

There is always a lovely cool breeze blowing into the room, and while the hotel offers guests ear plugs, who wouldn't want to fall asleep to the sound of tree frogs and crickets? Book me a room now!
If you want more information on the resort, you can visit the official website here.

Travel Photo Friday: Tremendous Tulips

Today's photo really needs no explanation - I'm sure you'll agree the striking colours of the tulip bulbs speak for themselves! While many think that bicycles are a trademark of Holland, I think the beautiful tulips are the most vivid trademark. One thing is for sure - they're overwhelmingly beautiful and something that has to be seen to be believed. 

The best time to see them is from the end of March until the second week in May, when the flowers in the bulb fields bloom. Stunning!
