Adventurous Single Parent Alert

Single parents have always longed for products and services that are tailor-made for their specific needs. It is regrettable that their trips around the world have not been as fulfilling as they would have wanted to, just because their desires are often overlooked. For instance, services in the hotel industry are often designed specifically for […]

My Magnificent Mountain Massage

I’m in my fluffy toweling robe and I’m ready to go.   After a hectic day of ski lessons, my body needs some pampering. I was thankful I’d made an appointment that morning with Aegeo SPAS since I really needed some relaxing massage. Their Wellness and Beauty Centre at this Small Luxury Hotel takes up a major […]

Thai Massages are famous, and they are famous all over the world. But there are massages and spas that vary in expertise and experience. So how do you select a good massage and spa from the thousands out there? Really – there is the good, the bad, and the downright ugly in the massage-world. But then […]

DaLa Spa Ubud. Float Away In A Flower Bath

Pinch me. Am I awake? Walking into 5-star DaLa Spa is like walking in your own living dream. You are awake. You have to pinch yourself that it is real. Or is it? I wander through the tropical lush gardens of Alaya Ubud Resort, and from the first step inside, DaLa Spa exudes opulence. Where in the world am I? […]

Relax Overlooking the Rice Fields At Alaya Ubud

Think of Ubud in Bali, and you can think of either of two things. The hustle and bustle of a once hippy town; now turned into a central bustling hub of modern earthy stores; fabulous restaurants; authentic Balinese culture; with hip and trendy hangouts. Or … You can think of the Ubud surrounding area. Where yoga […]

Get Your Rocks Off In Bali

Recently we visited Bali.  Although maybe a lot of our readers don’t realize, being on the go is exhausting.  We don’t have our own home.  We don’t have our own car.  We live out of suitcases.  We move from place to place. Country to Country. And that is tiring. Especially as an older single Mum […]

Culinary Journey of Royal Thai Cuisine

Amidst the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, we found some amazing places to visit; great places to shop; awesome tours; a wonderful spa; fabulous hotels; and brilliant shopping. But even with all that, everyone needs time to stop and eat. And not just a quick bite, we decided we wanted to experience some of the […]

The Ultimate In Pampering For Young And Old

Pampering ?????  Everyone you speaks to who has ever been to Bangkok will tell you “you must get a ‘proper’ Thai massage, and a bit of ‘personal pampering’ “.  But on our last night in Thailand, we decided to go one step further. We wanted to both experience being pampered, and we both wanted to […]

Relaxing in the Pyrenees of Spain

We have decided to end our time in Catalunya, by hopefully relaxing in the Pyrenees of Spain at Hotel Muntanya and Spa – Cerdanya Resort. It took most of the day to get here because we left Lloret de Mar in the morning and took the back and mountainous roads that zigzagged around the hills. […]

Living the Luxury Lifestyle in Lloret de Mar

We have just finished the most amazing month in Costa Brava, a region near the top right section of Spain in an area called Catalunya. We have been here for a travel writers conference called TBEX and decided to come and stay for a little time earlier than the Congress, and stay a little longer […]
