• Enjoy Your Vacation And Save Money With Last Minute Holidays

    Taking a last minute holiday can be a great way to swap that umbrella for the parasol without sustaining a huge dent in your wallet. Last minute holidays are perfect for individuals who want to enjoy their vacation to the fullest and save money along the way, and when you consider that a last minute package deal includes flights, accommodation, and transfers, you really can’t go wrong. Very often a last minute bargain holiday on the cheap can be more enjoyable than a holiday you’ve been anticipating for months on end. The build-up and expectation rarely lives up to the reality, but a last minute break usually excels. Why Last Minute Holidays Are Cheaper…

  • Hot in the City — Taking a Tour Around Praia, Cape Verde

      A destination for the discerning traveller, Cape Verde is an archipelago of volcanic islands located more than 500 kilometres off the coast of Senegal.

  • Sun, sand and family fun…

    I am sure you all read my post about our holiday at the romanian seaside a couple of weeks ago. We took lots and lots of pictures but we only managed to show you a couple. Today I want to share with you some more of the pictures – especially the ones that show how much fun we had with the sand. The girls love it although they enjoy playing with it in different ways. However, there was one activity they both loved – burying their father in sand and throwing water on top of his head:   And bless daddy he endured this as it was giving the girls…

  • Vintage Holiday at the Black Sea

    The beach I first met (if I could say so) is on the black sea of course in my home country Romania. My home town is only at a 30 miles distance from the nearest beach. I know..not exactly there…but close enough for the people that live hundreds of miles away to be envious. In our days the beach is very modern and full of sun beds and umbrellas all lined up and waiting for people to be seated(for a daily fee) plus lots of bars and restaurants with dishes for all tastes. You already saw some of my pictures from our holiday in Eforie Nord so although I do…

    Our holiday in Eforie Nord, Romania

    Romania as a country is beautiful. We have everything here – mountains, lakes and seaside – so if as a Romanian you can’t afford to fly anywhere then it doesn’t mean you can’t go on holiday. I was telling you a couple of months ago that we will be going for 3-4 days to Brasov. Oh well we cancel it because we realise that without a car will be really difficult as Anastasia is still quite young. I felt really down about it as its been almost 10 years since I last visited any part of the mountains. Plus Brasov is one of my favourite towns. But we decided that…

    Romantic destinations with Mini Cruises

    This year I started my first bucket list of places to visit until I will be 50. My first entry on the bucket list (which I promise I will soon publish on my blog too) is to go on a long cruise with my other half – English Dad. Our kids are young though and our resources quite little as you can imagine so next on my list is a mini cruise. I only found out a couple of weeks ago that such a short sea trip exist and it seems ideal for our financial resources at the moment. I am thinking that it could actually be achieved by the…
