• Protaras Inspiration

    As I mentioned in my previous post, we recently attended my cousin's wedding in Protaras, Cyprus. We were there for a week and the wedding was the day after we arrived, so we did have a lot of time to enjoy the area we were staying in. I visited Cyprus as a toddler but can remember ...

  • 6 Destination Wedding Tips for Guests

    At the start of this month, Chris and I were fortunate enough to attend the wedding of my gorgeous big cousin and her partner (now husband).

  • Our Honeymoon

  • Amsterdam Inspiration

    Last February (2013) Chris and I took a trip to Amsterdam. I've been to Amsterdam a couple of times, but never as an adult, and so we decided to book a wee three night stay in the Dam! Might provide some inspiration if you are looking for a trip with your other half or a ...

  • Budget Accommodation Rome – Blue Hostel

    Image Credit: http://www.bluehostel.it/ A few years ago I was looking for nice, budget friendly accommodation in Rome for a few nights, and stumbled across the Blue Hostel online.
