Glamping in Wales: Accommodation and facilities at Hidden Valley Yurts Wye Valley

LAST week I did a bit of a round up of our weekend glamping in Wales, and I’ve since been asked for more details, so I thought I’d write a review of the yurts themselves and the facilities at Hidden Valley Yurts Wye Valley. We decided to head to the glamping site near Chepstow after Read More

Eurocamp adventures: Family photos in a vineyard

FROM the minute the plane touched down at Nice Airport I became obsessed with the light in the Provence Alps Cote D’Azur region.

Our European capital city challenge is one way of doing this, and we’ve already been to a fair few that might not have been on my list. A few years ago, Amsterdam Read More

P&O Baltic Cruise: Tallinn, Estonia

TALLINN was the stop I was most looking forward to on our cruise. I was expecting it to be a fairytale-pretty little city with quirky streets and squares to wander around. It turned out to be exactly that … But so much colder than I anticipated! The old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Read More
