Venice Vacation, Travel with Children.

Why a Venice vacation? Celebrating New Years Eve as your children grow older becomes less about finding tickets for outrageous parties, clubs, gigs and ore about finding something beautiful, fun and inclusive you can do as a family.  You want the big bangs, the fireworks, the camaraderie of other people without overwhelming crowds and the ability to get back to the warm as soon as the children have had enough, or the ability to experience it all from the comfort of a vey large hotel window!

Michelle Obama, reaching parts other First Ladies could not reach.

You know that game where you liken yourself to a drink or a brand of beer. I think of the advert for Heineken and it’s that slogan that I associate with Michelle Obama, because she really truly has and does reach the parts that other First Ladies can’t reach. Connector, campaigner, trailblazer, influencer.  Tough act to follow.

As we go forward into 2017 and say goodbye to what can only be described as one of the most unsettling crazy years in recent history, well, let’s take Michelle’s advice, in all we do, aim high, go high. Keep it moving. Make your mantra’s, choose your resolutions, find your resolve and go for it…all of it.

Magical Mauritius. – Long Beach Golf & Spa Resort.

The hotel, the facilities, the location, all absolutely fantastic.  But what makes Long BeachGolf And Spa Hotel special, above others, is it’s people. They are the greatest asset of this resort and it is them that will have many holiday makers, including ourselves returning time and time again.
I urge you, if your looking for a honeymoon vacation,  or travelling with children, try it.

Something for the Weekend? – Sisu Boutique Hotel, Marbella.

Marbella. It all started when a VERY  handsome young waiter dressed in white polo shirt and white shorts,  upon arrival and said to us, “Welcome Ladies..would you care for a pill?” With that he extended a silver platter with a range of small circular very pretty to be honest objects.  Rather taken aback, I looked…
