Perfect….the perfect base for our time in Phuket, Thailand. Movenpick Resort Bangtao Beach Phuket was exactly what we wanted and so much more. We knew our time in Thailand was going to be pretty hectic, there was so much we wanted to do and see that we were going to be busy busy busy….and returning here […]
Some places really have an impact on you, really effect you, for me this was one of those places, somewhere very special, an experience which will stay with me forever. My fiancee and I went through just about the whole range of emotions at Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, an incredible place with amazing people doing great […]
I have a real problem with travel pillows, they always seem like such a good idea to me, I hate that neck pain after falling asleep in a train, plane or automobile! I’ve impulse bought so many at airports all over the world. I’ve bought “Premium” inflatable travel pillows “Premium” memory foam pillows, “Premium” bean […]
When we visited Munich, we fell in love, this is an awesome city! History, culture, beautiful parks, incredible views, great food, the famous beer, and a friendly atmosphere filled with people looking to enjoy themselves. “Shall we move here?” We’ve said this in so many places around the world, most of the time with tongue […]

So many stories surround […]
During our recent trip to Germany where we were camping in Schwangau, Bavaria, about 10 minutes away from Neuschwanstein Castle, we had made plans to take the train and cable car to the top of the Zugspitze Mountain, the highest point in Germany at 2962 metres. We had hired a car and when we started […]
“This is a magical place” I’ve never heard this phrase so many times! My fiancee repeatedly said this as we explored this fairy tale UNESCO listed location. When I was researching for our time in Portugal I kept seeing photographs of this incredible shining, multi coloured palace perched on top of a hill with incredible […]
Whilst in Portugal we took a drive to explore the coast further west including the most south-westerly point of mainland Europe. We had loved the idyllic hidden coves, beaches and caves of the Algarve further east (check out that story here) but had heard that the coast further west was as beautiful but in a […]
