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…

Ferrari Land Barcelona

Ferrari Land Spain

The boys were excited about visiting the brand new Ferrari Land during our trip to Barcelona, which opened on the 7th April 2017. Ferrari Land is the newest of the three theme parks at PortAventura in Salou and a €100 million euro investment, the water park Caribe Aquatic was the second development which opened in 2000. At the moment you can’t pay a single entry to visit Ferrari Land, it is combined with PortAventura on 1-3 day tickets, plus the…

Rethymno, Crete

We visited the town of Rethymno during our Crete trip, and if, like me, you enjoy pretty places with plenty of history, then you should add it to your “places I want to go” list. We had an unnerving experience when we arrived in the town. There are several car parks on the edge of the old town, but we struggled to find a space. Don’t do what we did, which was to try to get into the town with…

O Mylos tou Kerata, Platanias

We were drawn to the O Mylos tou Kerata by the garden terrace overlooking the road passing through Plantanias. It is said to be one of the oldest restaurants in Crete and it’s in a spectacular setting. The terrace is shaded by fruit trees laden heavy with oranges and lemons, as well as vines. I liked the hanging picture frames in the trees, drawing attention to the natural art growing there. At the back there is a Venetian watermill dating…

A Symphony of Light Hong Kong

A Week In Hong Kong

Hong Kong was amazing, everything we’d hoped for and some. We were constantly on the go, out exploring everyday, we slept like the dead every night and didn’t suffer with jet lag on arrival or after our trip. I put the lack of jet lag down to flying to our long haul destinations overnight where we try to sleep as much as possible. On arrival we force ourselves into the local timezone for eating and sleeping, for us it’s imperative…

Premier Inn Gatwick Review

We route into and out of Gatwick several times a year, and the flights often involve an overnight stay. We started using the Premier Inn there a few years ago, and the hotel has delivered a consistent service for us during at least 25 visits over the last few years. One of my pre-requisites for an airport hotel is that it must be directly accessible from the airport, rather than requiring a bus trip – I don’t like being at…

Korea Restaurant

Korea Restaurant, Hong Kong

We were walking back to our hotel at North Point, through Wanchai and Causeway Bay and we were looking for somewhere to enjoy our evening meal. We paused to check the menu out at Korea Restaurant and Jackie leaped up from the chair he was sitting on outside, and proceeded to persuade us to go in and try a traditional Korean barbecue. Never having eaten Korean style food before, we didn’t know what to expect, but it turned out to…
