  • Travel trend: cruising gets stylish

    Take your mind out of the gutter, I’m talking about holidays. Hey, I saw you roll your eyes and do that whole ‘Pah! I don’t do cruises thing’. But have you heard about the new kind of cruise – boutique river cruises, like this one (pictured) from L.A-based travel agents Uniworld? This is their Bordeaux, Vineyards and […]

  • Get holiday inspired!

    I don’t know about you, but as I’ve got older I’ve realised that time, rather than money, is a more precious, sought after commodity (deep, yes, I know).

  • Fancy a Spring fling with Tom Hiddleston in Mallorca?!

    It was bound to happen. We could never keep Tom or his filming locations to ourselves I suppose. Humph. At a cost of £3 million per episode BBC1’s espionage thriller The Night Manager (final episode on Easter Sunday!) certainly flits around some stunning locations: Mallorca, Marrakech, Madrid, Monaco, Zermatt, and uh, Devon… oh don’t you start, […]
