Beachey head is our last trip of our short Easter holiday. It’s a bright and breezy day to enjoy the stunning views.
We’re heading to the achingly hip town of Brighton today. Everywhere is a riot of colour and bustle, especially in The Lanes. I’ve wanted to see the Royal Pavilion for years!! Then there’s the iconic pier too. Plus more colourful street art than you can shake a stick at. Plus a swift visit to thisContinue reading “Brighton rocks”
A family break during Easter 2022. We’re staying in the tiny hamlet of Amberley. Enroute we stop off at the pretty cathedral town of Chichester. The traditional seaside resort of Bognor Regis is much nicer than I had imagined !
We try to visit the capital at least once a year but the pandemic put pay to that. But we’re making up for lost time and here’s a trip from March 2022. This time it’s Little Venice on our hitlist. Then Paddington Basin. There’s always something new to see in the capital. Nottinghill and marketsContinue reading “London bound”
A quick photo dump of our annual girls trip. This time we’ve headed to the industrial city of Birmingham, almost my second home city. Our whirlwind tour featured singing moose heads, cat cafes, terrible weather and lots of gin!
As we cruise back into the port the sun puts on a truly stunning display for our last night in Alicante. It’s been a short, but very sweet, visit and Alicante is well worth more than a fleeting glance. Until next time travel voyeurs! Te veo pronto!
There’s not much in the way of boat trips from Alicante but you can visit the tiny fishing village of Tabarca. So off we float – ready to conquer the waves yet again (PSA there are no waves – it is flat calm) Tabarca is the largest island in the Valencian Community, and the smallestContinue reading “Tiny Tabarca”
Here’s a few more snaps as we carry on exploring Alicante’s charming old town. I almost explode from delight when we find this colourful little dwelling (FOR SALE!!!) And there’s always colourful washing lines, tiles and swoon worthy doors to snap too.
It wouldn’t be a visit to the Costa Blanca without at least one trip to the capital of mass tourism that is Benidorm! In 1993 Benidorm town hall officially commemorated the first hundred years of tourism in the town. So although the town is synonymous these days with cheap (some might say tacky) package holidaysContinue reading “Benidorm”
We make a brief stop in the pretty town of Elche. Famous for its huge palm grove and extensive gardens. The municipal park was the first public garden created in the city in 1946. One of the most interesting buildings in the municipal park is the old visitors centre – in a pseudo-oriental style andContinue reading “Elegant Elche”
