Barbados musings

This is my view for the next couple of weeks....a stunning balcony on the West coast of Barbados. For those of you who have visited the island before, I bet you can almost hear the tree frogs singing as the sun goes down on another blissful day!


I'm a sucker for a good sunset, but it also makes me sad that another day of my travels is over. A great way to get over that is to enjoy a sundowner though, and that's what I'll be doing as soon as it starts to drop in the sky! Cheers everyone, and wherever you are reading this - happy holidays for you too when they come!

Flashback Friday: Family friendly bliss in Portugal

Today I'm flashing back to a place that would suit families looking for a place where adults can relax, and the younger generation are also well catered for. 


Martinhal Beach Resort and Hotel is near Sagres in the Western Algarve and is a beautiful spot for a chilled out holiday, but also a lovely place to enjoy a spot of lunch or a cocktail as the sun goes down.

Time for travelling

Last year I took the whole summer off for the first time since I was a little girl. I have wonderful childhood memories of enjoying the freedom that school holidays allowed with not a care in the world.


My work allows me to take some much needed down time in the summer months, and this is the last post that I'll be writing before my adventures begin.


I have eleven weeks in which to recharge my batteries, and plan to head "where the weather suits my clothes" as Harry Nilsson sang in the brilliant song Everybody's Talkin'.


If life isn't for living to the full, then what's the point of working hard all year? Make the most of your own time off work this year, whether you're going away or spending it at home. There's a big wide world out there, and it's ready to be explored!

Travel Photo Friday: The little boy's room

Regular readers of my blog will know that I love photographing signs when I'm on my travels. Over the years I've taken pictures of beautiful old signs in Italy; amusing ones in the Caribbean, and today's shot was taken in Lisbon.


I think this one manages to be beautiful yet amusing at the same time! 
Have you taken any photos of signs on your travels? If so why not share them with me - details of how to get in touch are on my contact page.
