There are a few words that come to mind when we try to describe Sardinia…  it’s a stunning italian island, your choice of rocky or sandy beaches with or without waves, guaranteed crystal clear water, delicious Italian food and… the list goes on and on… The Sardinia: 7 Day love affair post summarises our incredible week circling this stunning island, flying into Alghero and out of Olbia with one or two night stops along en-route to the next beach!… Read More

Io amo l’Italia, translated to english means I love Italy! Honestly, Italy, and you’re likely to read this more than once on our blog, has to be our favourite country.

The place that for me would have to be the most memorable would have to… Read More

Being spoilt for choice, we decided to google, ‘best beaches in Europe‘ and quickly stumbled across the TripAdvisor list generated by who knows who, teasing you with crystal clear water on some remote locations!

Playa de Ses Illetes on the small island of Formentera is a quick 30… Read More

When we started to plan our trip to Jordan, we knew there were a minimum of three sites we needed to see.  The Dead Sea, Wadi Rum and Petra.  Given we had pre-booked our Dead Sea tour, all that was left to book was Wadi Rum and Petra. We were struggling to find a company that would personalise a tour for us as we didn’t want to camp in the desert but… Read More

Our first full day in Jordan, we booked a private tour to Madaba, Mt Nebo and The Dead Sea.  We booked the tour through Viator, but the tour company was Zaid Tours & Travel. The tour as mentioned was private which meant we could stay for as long or as little at places as we liked!  The highlights of the tour were: Private day trip to the Amman citadel, Madaba, Mount Nebo and… Read More
