Brussels Belgium

Short Video clip of The Grand Place Brussels Belgium Brussels Belgium seems to be becoming a trendy spot for weekend getaways and holidays. Apart from its famous chocolates and great beers there are many attractions that most visitors cannot begin to imagine. It is a significant centre of European culture with almost 90 museums, beautiful […]

Cologne (Köln) Germany

Another nice German City to visit. We have been to Cologne a couple of times. Hotels were up to a good standard as usual. Flights from London Stansted Airport to Köln Bonn are approx 1 hour, the good news is that you can fly with German Wings and with RyanAir. The journey from the Cologne […]

Hamburg Germany

We were Hamburg Germany for 4 nights and stayed at the Hamburg Holiday Inn. The minute we walked through the door we knew we had made the right choice. On check in we were greeted by very friendly staff and as soon as they realised we were English they spoke to us in English. We […]

Milan Italy

After our last unsuccessful Italian trip to Turin we were in two minds whether to visit Italy again. We gave it another chance with a few days in Milan Italy, an easy place to visit from stansted airport. The worst part of the trip was flying with RyanAir. They seem to make the shortest of […]

Lake Como

Lake Como is a short train ride away from Milan, approx 1 hour. It’s well worth it. It is said that George Clooney has a house there. My wife was hoping to bump into him.     The Lake Como Mountain Railway (Funicolare Como-Brunate and Lighthouse Voltiano) takes passengers from Pazza de Gasperi, near the […]

Atlantic City USA

Atlantic City is very lively day and night. Casinos, boardwalk, nightlife, restaurants, a beach and shopping. Travel from Manhattan to Atlantic City can be done in several different ways. We chose the Atlantic City Express Train Service (ACES). We traveled from New York, midtown Manhattan, Penn Station. The journey took about 2 hours 40 minutes. […]

My Historic Walk around my hometown Cambridge England

We’ve been living in Cambridge England for over 20 years. It is our adopted home. I was just passing through and instantly fell in love with the place. It is steeped in history. Since before the University Cambridge came into being. Cambridge’s history first thought to be built by the Romans. The town was a […]

Rhodes Greece

During our trip to Rhodes Greece we stayed at the Capsis Hotel. We chose the Capsis due to the price deal of it’s all inclusive. There were a few negative comments on Trip Advisor but many positive ones. Some negative about the ability of the Hotel to control the wind and other forces of nature. […]

Lille France

It has been said that the French are not accommodating to foreigners. Many of these rumours are Paris related. Not so with Lille France. For first visitors to France Lille is probably the ideal place to visit. Although, not very good with languages apart from French they are polite and accommodating. We stayed at the […]

Neuschwanstein Castle

Several tours can be taken. We took the Neuschwanstein Castle (where Disney got his inspiration from for his fairytale castle) tour leaving from the Radius Tours office in Munich Central Station. We met our guide there with the rest of the group in the morning and caught a train to Fussen station. From there it […]

Amazing Filtered Water Bottle

Thanks to this Amazing filtered water bottle my daughter survived backpacking around India. As soon as she read about this product, she knew she wanted/needed one. She used it everywhere she went (although she didn’t make it to the Ganges to do the ultimate drinking test!) She stayed healthy through the whole trip, filling up […]

Salzburg Austria

During July we went to Salzburg Austria by train from Munich Central Station. We booked the Salzburg trip from Radius Tours in Munich Central Station. We’d booked several tours from them in the past and they proved to be efficient and fun. We met on the morning of travel and split into manageable groups with […]

New York USA

I could live in New York I love it so much. My wife and I have been there about 5 times in the past few years. The photos and are not only from one trip. If you are new to New York there is an organisation called Big Apple Greeters http://www.bigapplegreeter.org. This what we did […]

Berlin Germany

During our Berlin Germany visit we stayed at the Tryp Berlin Mitte Hotel at Chausseestrasse 33, 10115 Berlin for 5 nights and was not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and spoke english very well which helped a lot. The hotel was nice and new and room very clean. The bathroom had a lovely large […]

Limassol Cyprus

We have visited Limassol Cyprus on many occasions over the years and have only just decided to write about it. It’s about time that Limassol Cyprus got the credit it deserves. Cyprus is beautiful island of Aphrodite who was said to have been born out of the sea foam. Cyprus is set in the Eastern […]
