Dubrovnik

With my A,B,C Holidays once again rearing its head with my two best girlfriends and being two years behind schedule we decided that for “D” we would head to Dubrovnik, not because we are massive game of thrones fans either (although I am). My first ever visit to the lovely country of Croatia and WOW it was not a disappointment. Just a 2.35 hour plane journey and a 30 mins transfer from the airport to my hotel - https://www.adriaticluxuryhote...I was lucky enough to have the pleasure to ...

Anguilla

Oh my! What can I say about this recent trip?  Firstly some of the pictures are not great, my camera broke, so half are with camera and half with iphone, no offence to the iphone.These are all from the lovely Island of Anguilla. I took a trip there last month, for five beautiful days, with beautiful people and amazing food. The island is flat, like a pancake, unlike its neighbours St Maarten and Antigua. It’s British of course, and its famous for the shortest battle ever fought, according...

Oh Là Là France

On our recent trip to France we took these beautiful photos in Bordeaux, Lyon, Avignon, Arles, Nice, Marseille, Carcassonne and Toulouse.  The pictures are a mix of the sights, from the people, the art, the rivers and the transport rather than just the castles and cathedrals. We hope you like them!For more information about our this trip or any other destination, please contact John on 0207 485 4471...

Anguilla and Antigua

When I told people I was going to Anguillla, everyone said, ooohhh where’s that? Except my Mum who said that sounds dangerous. Anguilla, is in the Caribbean , very close to the Dutch/French island of St Maarten . when you come close to it, from the air, you can see how flat it is. Most Caribbean islands have mountains and rain forests, but Anguillla does not. The capitol is called The Valley, and is a small busy little town, the thing about Anguilla is…..it’s the people, the people ar...

Eagle’s Palace Villa Halkidiki 2019

I was lucky enough to be invited on this small luxury agent’s trip to see and stay in the Eagles Palace Villas in Halkidiki. 3 hours from London – nice and early start with Easyjet from London Gatwick but sadly a 1.40 minute transfer but once you arrive at the hotel ,WOW –a backdrop of azure sea and beautiful green trees with an abundance of flora and fauna everywhere and to top it all the famous Mount Athos.The Villas are relatively new and each have their own pool (all be it a bit bigger...

The wonders of Andalucia...

Our windows last month celebrated the wonders of Andalucia. With pictures from Seville Cordoba and Granada, I hope you can see the magnificence of the architecture, its past and present sights and the beauty of this region. Well worth avoiding in the summer months, where temperatures can reach 40c, they are perfect for Spring early summer, and autumn. January is lovely too with mild days and cold nights. Wonderful Spanish wine, tapas bars, and flamenco. With several local airports, and fantastic...

A Tale of Two Mountains and Two Cities....

Mountains are pretty stunning, that cannot be denied. The pictures here, are of different mountains both linked to major Cities.  Salt Lake City , in Utah, famous for its Lake, and The Mormons who founded it, and the amazing Tabernacle Choir, is surrounded by , these lovely mountains.  Park City, has a short autumn, and heavy winter snow fall, making it a major, and pretty expensive ski resort. In the summer, the hotels are filled with families and hikers. The resort is also the host o...

Brugge

On a recent trip to Brugge, these are some of the pictures. It was a beautiful autumn day, as you can see from the trees and the sky. It was a trip, from one train to another, very comfortable, and very easy. Brugge is a lovely town, walk everywhere, great places to eat, and shop despite the exchange rate. A real must for a short break.We can arrange this for you…..and a super hotel.Contact John on 0207 485 4471...

Seattle

A recent trip took me to the city of Seattle in the US state of Washington.  Such a great place, it's a little bit San Francisco and a little bit Camden Town.  These photos don't do it justice.  I was lucky enough to do a trip around the city in a sea plane, and some of the photos are from there...surrounded by beautiful islands, all easily visited by ferry and the cruise ships to Alaska.  This is a very special city, you will notice the reference to GUM.  There is a wal...

Elounda Gulf Villas, Crete.

Elounda Gulf Villas is only a 1 hour transfer from Heraklion Airport – I was lucky enough to stay in a 3 bedroom villa with a private pool ( Plaka) in October. The Villas are spacious, some with their own sauna and small gym so great if you're into fitness. The grounds are easy to follow, a lovely restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner – many months of the year there is a free half board offer (not July and August). There is also a private dining restaurant offering some of the b...

Vive La France

Our September window featured pictures from two lovely towns in France.  Sete, an attractive maritime town referred to by the locals as the Venice of Languedoc and Avignon, a city in southeastern France’s Provence region, set on the Rhône River.  Sete, was a delightful place, quite unexpected, on a day trip from a short cruise it was market day and the town was a buzz of people. Avignon was as expected, stunning, the countryside was amazing, and the smell of lavender, pure Prov...

Beautiful Greece

Beautiful Greece . What’s not to like? The white-washed houses, turquoise waters as far as the eye can see, romantic sunsets, mediterranean flavours and mythological references. This is the idea most of us have of the Greek Islands - no wonder they are considered the most popular sea destination in Europe! On our recent trip to Greece we took some photos to reflect the different sides it has to offer, from the modern museum near the Acropolis in Athens, the delights of Corfu Har...

Puerto Vallarta – Mexico

So after many years I have gone on a proper package to this lovely place full of adventure, big hotels, long stretches of beach and a variety of excellent excursions. Now Puerto Vallarta is on the Pacific Ocean side of Mexico so compared to Cancun the sea is dark and extra wavy! It was a 12 hour journey from London but only 9.5 hours on the return and I travelled on my first dream liner. The flight was excellent 2 good meals, drinks, plenty to watch and the space on board was magnificent (I coul...

Stunning Seville

One of Europe’s most stunning cities….well worth a visit.Seville is located in the South of Spain. Famous for its architecture and tourist attractions, the climate differs depending on the time of year - our last visit to Seville was in October 2017 and the temperature was a staggering 35c! However, its Mediterranean climate produces high temperatures in summer with the cooler months occurring in winter.  The trouble with Seville, is that everywhere you look you see beauty.  F...

Beautiful Jamaica

Jamaica trip hosted by JTB (Jamaican Tourist Board) So after 28 years of travelling on business for the wonderful job that I do I have never been upgraded to business class and wow what an experience.  I was on a British Airways flight to Kingston a 9 hour journey but with the added comfort of business class the time whizzed by; champagne, food, TV and a flatbed - I was in in my glory! The first stop was the beautiful Goldeneye Hotel www.goldeneye.com – Hence the name – yes James Bonds ...

The Art of Cruising

Choosing a cruise, if its your first time, can be a daunting experience.  All those different ships, big and small, luxurious and more relaxed... what to choose? The best way to start, is by the itinerary, most cruise lines follow a pattern, and they sail away, intertwining with each other, with passengers watching one sail away as another arrives. Obviously cost, is an important factor when choosing a cruise line that suits your budget, but cruising is a product that still has flexible pri...

Seychelles

Last month I was lucky enough to do a trip to the Seychelles. Not a destination you hear about much these days, athough when I started in this industry the Seychelles were a well known haunt of the rich and famous - long before the Maldives and Mauritius were on the map. 155 islands make up this nation - the main ones being Male and Praslin. I was expecting an Indian Ocean Caribbean, but i was very surprised to find mountains and lush green hills, in abundance. There are no direct flights from U...

Vilamoura – The Algarve

Great for a quick weekend away for some sun, golf, tennis or food and drink! Just over 2 hours from the UK and a 20 minute transfer to Vilamoura , so within 3 hours with hand luggage you can be at your hotel with a Gin and Tonic (at 11 am) like me. Beautiful long beach for miles, a classic Marina with some lovely restaurants catering for all budgets and superb bars with music from karaoke, live bands or resident singers. I travelled with some girlfriends the beginning of our alphabet holida...

Stockholm - What a difference a degree can make?

I left London yesterday and the trees were all in full bloom, the spring flowers were dying off, and the grass was sprouting. Here in Stockholm the spring has just sprung, here they are still bare and the crocuses and daffodils are in full bloom. The air is full of cherry blossom and the Swedes, at every opportunity, are soaking up the bright sun rays that are warming their skin after a dark winter. They really do love the sun and who can blame them?  As the winter slowly disappears it must...

Janes Journey to St Lucia

WOW...................5 nights of paradise that felt like a week. The hotel I was fortunate to visit and stay for 5 nights was the Viceroy Sugar Beach formally known as the Jalousie Plantation. This hotel is set in its own rainforest to one side with the famous Pitons on the other. I stayed in one of the Sugar Mill rooms which were stunning with an outside garden with small plunge pool (more dipping) adjacent to the rainforest and a upstairs sunbathing / balcony area, you also get your own butle...

Verdura Resort Gold and Spa Hotel, Sicily

This hotel eludes so much space, offers golf, spa, good food and local hospitality. The Grand Suite is amazing but the lead in room is more than acceptable with nice furnishings and all the usual mod cons.  Three to four restaurants on offer in the height of season offering varied menus for all budgets and nice bar/relaxing areas for a tipple or too.To get around you would either jump on the mass supply of bicycles or call for the golf buggy that are quick and plentiful or hire your own for...
