Postcards from Puglia….

 This post was originally written at the start of March, just a few days before Italy went into lockdown and then we subsequently followed.  I decided not to post it at the time  as I felt it was insensitive, not important and it it quite frankly it didn’t sit well to be indulging in my […]

The Ghost of the New Year Presence ….

A New year , a new decade, the 2020’s are upon us … the sparkles of Christmas and its indulgence are now of yesterday ( well asides the indulgence left on me but that is not what this post is about ). I find a New Year can be both exciting and daunting at the […]

Greek Island Hopping | Donoussa

We left Pino di Loto ridiculously early to catch our ferry to our final Greek Island. With heavy hearts, off we were Donoussa bound and within three hours hearts were lightened as we arrived at the beautiful Little Cyclade and at the tiniest port.  The bluest, clearest of water, it could have been the Caribbean but […]

Goodbye Summer….

Goodbye Summer, hello Autumn.  I think we are all thinking that the weekend’s weather was Summer’s kind way of saying her goodbyes.   The last of the Summer, the last BBQ’s, alfresco dinners, Summer dresses and sandal wearing,  snoozing in the rays days.   Of course Autumn has an abundance of beauty and new changes can always […]

Greek Island Hopping | Tinos Island

I am not sure you can beat the Greek Islands for that epitome of the idyllic Summer holiday.  The bluest of skies, the warmest of sun, water and people. Cuisine to make your mouth water on just the mention of the word, Moussaka.  Stunning bays and beaches,  the bluest, cleanest, clearest and sparkliest of water […]

Postcards from Camber Sands.

Last weekend we escaped down to the good ole seaside for a ‘chilled, full of sea air’  48 hours in Camber Sands.  We rented an airbnb with friends which was less than a five minute walk to the beautiful beach, covered in golden sand which is unlike all the other shingle /pebble beaches along Sussex […]
