I'm a self-confessed technophobe. I try, but I don't really understand technology and am impatient if it doesn't work. I never have the most up to date kit...in fact, I probably don't even have the kit in the first place! The old days! When I first went travelling, digital cameras were in their infancy, the… Continue reading Travel and Technology
How to spend a day in Menorca, hopping back from Son Bou to Mahon airport, taking in some cultural and natural sights along the way.
A visit to Blackpool wouldn't be complete without seeing the Illuminations!! We had been up the Blackpool Tower earlier that day, (enjoying the views!) so, we were up for hitting another of the town's tourist attractions! The tradition of the annual illuminations which light up the promenade dates back to 1879, when they first experimented… Continue reading The Blackpool Illuminations!
It was Bonfire Night in the UK on Monday, a day when everyone goes firework crazy! Our local fireworks display was held on the Saturday evening, and as usual it was pretty spectacular. I took the opportunity to test out the camera on my new mobile phone. I've opted for a Google Pixel 2 as… Continue reading Fabulous Fireworks!
The Little Mermaid is hosting another tea party… and this month’s theme is travel! Hop over there to join in the fun!
What better way to suggest friendliness – and to create it – than with a cup of tea?” -J. Grayson Luttrell

Classically, a ‘tea party’ makes one think of superiorly elegant and elaborate affairs of the Victorian times. It also conjures up images of fluffy scones, flavoursome muffins, Devonshire Cream and dainty sandwiches served on fine silver or deluxe bone china. Still, the elemental part of a tea party remains the affable exchange of dialogue among the invitees.

...CHEESY SEASIDE FUN! I have just returned from a fabulously fun weekend in Blackpool, catching up with family and seeing a few of the sights. Technically we were staying in Lytham St Anne's which is just outside Blackpool, but we had to venture into the famous town whilst we were there. I used to spend… Continue reading Because I Love…
I was already in two minds whether to attend the alms ceremony in Luang Prabang. Tak Bat is definitely seen as one of the 'must do' activities whilst you are there. There is no doubt that it is one of the most iconic images of this city. Every morning the monks from the many temples… Continue reading To Alms Or Not To Alms?

This small but perfectly formed island holds a very special place in my heart. I have a family connection to the island and I also have precious memories from a particular holiday taken there long ago. The few trips I had there initially when I was younger were very much about sun, sea and sand… Continue reading Aaah Menorca!
