Total Seclusion in the Tranquility of Zanzibar

Imagine dining under the Africa night sky with stars twinkling above, and with lanterns glowing all around you. The ocean breeze gently wafts and blows away every stress and worry in your life.

Perfect Swimming Choices – All Day And Night In Zanzibar

Imagine cooling off in your own private pool before bedtime. Swimming under the stars in cool water was a just luxury for Explorason.   The warm Zanzibar night breeze wafted gently up from the Indian Ocean.

Family Fun on Spice Island Zanzibar Tanzania

Zanzibar was once known as Spice Island, where it was considered a major trading post for Spices from Africa going by sea to the Middle East and Asia. Not only were the spices traded here, but many were also grown here on the island too. Thus, Zanzibar became a famous port in the Indian Ocean. […]

Relaxing in Zanzibar Tanzania at Bahari View Lodge

As our plane descends over Zanzibar Island, my son is just SO excited! He loves the East Coast of Africa, and it has been 18 months since we first discovered it for ourselves. Now, after just finishing our time in Jordan, we will have time to slow down a little. It had taken nearly 24 […]

The Most Affordable Luxury Ski Resort in Europe ???

In 2014 we discovered the Bulgarian ski slopes, and we fell in love. Nestled in the outer area of Bansko, this resort faced the Pirin Mountain range, and it wasn’t just the area we fell in love with, but more so where we stayed. Premier Luxury Mountain Resort is probably one of the loveliest places we […]

My Magnificent Mountain Massage

I’m in my fluffy towelling robe and I’m ready to go.   After a hectic day of ski lessons, my body needs some pampering. I need the soothing effect of a massage, so I was thankful I’d made an appointment that morning with Aegeo SPAS. Their Wellness and Beauty Centre at this Small Luxury Hotel takes […]

The Invisible Dangers Of Travel In Macedonia

Two years ago Explorason and I went to enter the country of Macedonia in our UK registered vehicle, but when we passed the second border check they tried to charge us an incredible amount for the vehicle to enter, so we had to turn around and leave, and we went to Kosovo instead. Having now […]

Sleep On Nature At Coco-Mat In Athens Greece

We’ve been traveling the world now for over four years, and since 2014 there have been a couple of items that have travelled the world with us. These are our Coco-Mat Aromatherapy Pillow-sachets. Lavender-filled little flat cotton bags go under our pillows and give us each a relaxing night’s sleep, and because their origin is […]

A New Hotel Made From Old Pieces Athens Greece

We all know recycling is important, but when we entered the NEW Hotel in Athens Greece, we were shocked as they have taken recycling to a whole new level. Why? Because the walls, as well as a lot of the furniture and fixtures, are made from the antique and ancient wood that they were scrapping […]

Meteora With Snow In Winter – The 8th Wonder Of The World?

As the snow forms a white blanket and lays softly on the grassy roadside edges, I gaze out of the window and realise that I am experiencing a dream come true. Just over two years ago we visited Meteora in October of 2014, and I have always wanted to return to see it when it […]

Malta – A Photographers Dream Location

Malta is probably the most colourful island I have visited on my world travels. I was mesmerised by the bold and bright colours against the white limestone. If you are a budding photographer or if photography is your passion, then I’d love to suggest you book a trip to Malta. We’ve just spent one whole […]

You Have To Add Malta To Your Bucket List

It’s my birthday – I can’t believe I am turning 55.  How did that happen?  I really don’t know, but I want to celebrate it in a new country, with new memories to start a new year, so we chose the tiny islands of Malta as country 69 on our world trip. And OH MY […]
