I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and Mike for all of your help planning our perfect honeymoon!! The Airport lounge was such a great way to start the honeymoon. Dan has decided that’s how we are now going to start every holiday from now on. Thanks to Mike for checking every possible date again, he was so patient with me. Its was amazing to fly the day after the wedding as we were on such a high.

South Africa was unreal….and they upgraded us to the best room in the hotel. Stunning. We saw so many animals including a few rare sights such as 4 males lions walking next to our truck.

Honeymoon

We’ve had a lovely time. The villa was ideal for us a couple.

I’m glad you’ve said you can do travel worldwide because that was a question I was going to ask you. As much as we love Lanzarote we feel like a change.

Thanks again julie to both you and Mike I feel like I now you know and trust you to get Graham and myself the best holiday.

Mike Cliffe-Jones

Director

I love travelling, especially when I get do so with a touch of luxury. For me travel is about buying “moments’ rather than “Things.” I’m an Ironman triathlete, scuba diver and I love techy stuff and cars. Sadly for my waistline, I love cooking and enjoying great food! My favourite places so far are Cape Town and Las Vegas, but I plan to explore the far east much more.

Julie Cliffe-Jones

Director

I’m in my forties, the kids have grown up and it’s time to have some fun with my hubby interspersing work with travel. I love discovering new places, I like to stay in luxury hotels, understand the local culture, experience the gastronomy and take photographs as I travel. I’m also a triathlete and Ironman, so when I do have some spare time I’ll probably be swimming, cycling or running.

Broads

The Norfolk Broads – Mike’s Thoughts

I remember my parents talking fondly about their boating trips to the Norfolk Broads in the 50’s and 60’s, so trying it for myself has been on my agenda for many years. Interestingly, once we’d booked it, everyone I spoke to who has been described it as one of their best ever holidays, and those who hadn’t almost universally said it is something they want to do one day.  Little wonder then that over 3 million people holiday in the…

Norfolk Broads Boating Holiday

We’ve not had a boating holiday before, so when good friends of ours were thinking of booking their next trip on the Norfolk Broads, we decided to join them. The lovely thing about the Norfolk Broads is that it’s an easy introduction to boating, there’s 120 miles of waterways and no locks to deal with. We had booked a 35ft Brinks Concerto for our week, with two double cabins and two bathrooms. As we had choice of cabins, we went…

Norfolk Broads Pubs

We were looking forward to eating out at a few pubs during our tour of the Southern Broads. We managed 6 during our week, and had some fabulous meals as well as tasting local ales. The pubs are listed in the order that we visited them. The Maltsers, Ranworth Ranworth is a picture postcard setting, there’s a village green with a local shop, and the tower of St. Helen’s church peaks out from the trees. The Maltsers is visible from…

Joanna Lumley’s India

We are really looking forward to watching Joanna Lumley’s India which starts tonight at 21:00 on ITV. Mike’s mum was born in India and as yet neither of us have been to this country, which is why it’s top of our destination list for 2018. Actually Mike has just clarified that he has been to India, but only for refuelling at Bombay and New Delhi airports during long haul flights from Hong Kong to the UK. In this three part…

Family Trip To Barcelona

Our first night in Barcelona was spent in the Best Western Hotel Alfa Aeropuerto which is the closest hotel to the airport, they offer a free shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel door but for ease we jumped in to one of the many taxis that queue at the front of the airport doors for a flat 20 EUR fee. We took a quick dip in the indoor pool and whilst we had it to ourselves it was…

Pirate Pool H10 Mediterranean Village

H10 Mediterranean Village

We chose to stay at the 4* H10 Mediterranean Village hotel in Cap Salou for 2 nights as part of our short break in Barcelona. There are a few H10 hotels in the area, but this one had good family reviews and an interesting pirate boat themed pool for our granddaughter to play in. We only needed bed & breakfast accommodation, but we upgraded to half board, as the extra cost was just £30 for the 5 of us. We…
