Bristol Airport

The Aspire Lounge and Silver Parking at Bristol Airport

We recently flew from Bristol Airport to The Canaries, so naturally, we checked out the services available for our readers. Silver Parking Bristol Airport As we pulled up to the barrier to the entrance of the Silver parking numerous cameras took photographs of our pre booked vehicle and the barrier swiftly opened to allow us into the car park.  We quickly found a space, made a mental note of the number of it and walked the short distance to the…

A week in Berlin

Our idea of a Christmas in Berlin was in jeopardy on Friday 15th December when we realised that the airline Nikki had ceased trading. We scoured all the various options of how we could connect with Berlin from Lanzarote for our original dates, including connections in UK and the Spanish mainland. Eventually it came down to either bringing our departure forward or cancelling our entire holiday. We rebooked departing from Fuerteventura with Ryanair, taking a gamble that their pilot strikes…

Amrit Berlin Curry

Amrit Restaurant Berlin

We were surprised to find that there aren’t many curry restaurants in Berlin, despite the fact that “curry wurst” can be found absolutely everywhere! But having spent a day in Potsdamer Platz, we pretty much stumbled across Amrit, so we decided to pop in and try it out. It’s located just across the road from the Sony Centre, a 1 minute stroll from The Mall of Berlin and just 600 metres from The Brandenburg Gate, so a visit to that…

Berlin for Christmas

Our next adventure is fast approaching. We decided recently to look at getting away to somewhere cold and festive for Christmas this year, ahead of “peaks”. This is the busy holiday booking period in January & February, when we will be working hard on behalf of our lovely clients, to book their holidays. We wanted an inexpensive week’s holiday including direct flights from Lanzarote for this trip, so after researching the options, we booked to fly to Berlin on Christmas Eve.…

Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife Pool

Hard Rock Hotel, Tenerife

Let’s cut to the chase here. The service at the Hard Rock Hotel in Tenerife is the best I have ever experienced in Europe. We’ll come back to that later, but if great service floats your boat, then you should book a stay. We went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and because we’d previously enjoyed a stay at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas, although the Tenerife version is a 5 star versus 4 stars for it’s Vegas cousin.…

British Airways Club Europe Review

Is it worth paying the extra for Club Europe? A lot depends on the aircraft – we flew from London to Barcelona a few months ago, and the aircraft was a Boeing 777, so we enjoyed the full business class experience, even down to fold flat beds. But on most European routes BA flies Airbus A320’s and it isn’t that exciting. Read on for more…. We flew business return from Lanzarote to London Gatwick recently. We elected for the offered…

Invergordon, Scottish Highlands

Invergordon was our final port of call on our Scottish Highlights & Faroes Cruise with Cruise Maritime Voyages. We arrived in Invergordon, in the Cromarty Firth in the early morning. The firth, which is Scottish for Fjord, is a long way in the from the coast, and has created one of the UK’s largest natural deep water harbours. Invergordon is close to inverness and is on the eastern side of the Scottish Highlands. It was a Royal Navy harbour for…

Mike’s Thoughts – First Cruise, CMV’s Columbus

You can read the detail of our trip around the British islands and Highlands elsewhere on the website, but these are my personal thoughts on my first cruise experience. I should say that I approached this with some trepidation – I’ve never seen myself as a “cruising type” because we prefer holidays where we are in control of where we go, what we eat and we love exploring new places, so being aboard the same ship for 7 days was…
