We love beer. In fact, it features on our ’when to count a county’ criteria. We only tick a country off our list when we’ve drunk a pint of their locally produced beer. Along with one or two other things, of course. During our previous visits to Germany, we have naturally partaken in sampling the local sauce. Therefore Germany already had a big fat tick next to its name. That did not stop us indulging (read overindulging) in the good stuff when we visited the capital of Bavaria as part of Mr ESLT’s birthday celebrations last year. We took the opportunity to not only drink it but also learn about the history of Bavarian beer in Munich – the traditions, where and how it’s brewed and more importantly and of course where we could sample it. Oktoberfest OK, unless you live under a rock, you’ll have heard of the number one and most popular beer festival in the world – Oktoberfest. Many towns and cities around the world have mini mock Oktoberfests. Usually to coincide with the original and biggest which is held and originates in Munich. For between 16 and 18 days every year around the end of September […]

Quite often there is a misconception surrounding cruises. They are considered to be the holiday choice of the elite and/or older generations. However, that is simply not the case. In fact, taking a cruise is an option that everyone can and should consider. From singles cruises to Disney cruises and not forgetting adults only cruises. There is a cruise for everyone, even for people who don’t like cruises! Also, cruises are a year-round option from Mediterranean cruises during the summer to Caribbean cruises during the winter and plenty of other choices for other times of the year too. Another misconception is that there are a lot of extra and hidden costs when it comes to cruising. From food and drinks to tips and taxes. That’s why it’s a great idea to book an all-inclusive cruise holiday, regardless of destination or time of year and here are five key reasons why. You Pay One Price Basically, the price you pay includes everything. This means you do not have to pay another penny while actually on the all-inclusive cruise. Instead, you can enjoy everything the cruise has to offer – food, drinks, entertainment etc, without the worry of a massive bill at […]

Apologies in advance if you clicked on this post in the hope that we’re looking for new writers/guest submissions etc for the blog. We’re not, sorry! Yesterday something wonderful happened. Yesterday we were approved to become adoptive parents….YES!  If you have followed our adoption journey from the beginning and along the twisty turny road, you’ll know it has been an emotional 12 months. From the initial information evening, we attended last April until yesterday, the whirlwind that we’ve been caught up in has been intense, to say the least. Stage 2 – Completed It! We started Stage 2 back in mid-January. No amount of online research or book reading could’ve prepared us for what was to come. Our social worker – remember the one who I thought hated us because she never got in touch? Well, she became our best friend. We’ve seen her so often in the past 4 months. Even now, some mornings I expect to walk into the kitchen and see her sitting at the table, coffee in hand, ready for another in-depth session. The hours of talking and filling in paperwork were tiring and it constantly felt like we were riding on a rollercoaster of emotions. […]

In recent years, websites such as Airbnb have surged in popularity and are proving a true competitor to the hospitality industry as a whole. But while Airbnb is known for its cheap deals, what exactly are you paying for? Particularly when compared to a professional hotel room, Airbnb’s security for its guests and hosts relies heavily on trust. This is part of what creates a cheaper price. In this article, courtesy of Breamish Valley who provide cottages in Northumberland, we will explore exactly what you are paying for between an Airbnb booking and traditional hotel booking, highlighting security features and experiences. The Basics — Airbnb First, let’s look at Airbnb’s list of basic requirements for a host. Note that these requirements are ‘asked’ of a host. This will give you an idea of the basic level you can expect when booking a room through Airbnb. This absolute minimum a guest should expect from their host is: Essentials should be provided to the guest by the host. ‘Essentials’ are defined as: toilet paper, soap, linens, and at least one towel and pillow per booked guest. Booking enquiries and reservation requests should be responded to within 24 hours. Reservation requests should be […]

As proud Yorkshire folks, we are active advocates of the area. Whenever we get the chance we encourage people to visit and spend some time here. Brimming with beautiful beaches, cosmopolitan cities and not forgetting breathtaking countryside, there’s no wonder Yorkshire is often referred to as God’s Own Country. Living in East Yorkshire we love exploring our local area. We particularly enjoy finding new, exciting and unique things to do, attractions to visit and places to stay – especially glamping sites. Therefore, when we were invited to spend the evening at the Seaways Glamping and Camping site we couldn’t say no. We, therefore, chucked our overnight bag in the car. We were excited to make the short journey to see what the site and surrounding area has to offer. If you are familiar with the area, Seaways may ring a bell with you. The Seaways Café is an institution in Fridaythorpe, located in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds and has been since it first opened in 1974. It’s popular with not only locals and passing tourists but also with the biker community. The car park, especially on a sunny day (yes, we do get them sometimes around these parts) […]

Vicky visited The Hague (Den Haag) last summer and loved her time there. Therefore when we were both invited back recently, she couldn’t wait for Mr ESLT to fall in love with the Royal City by the Sea too. The Hague which is located on the Western Coast and is the third largest city in The Netherlands. However, it is often overshadowed by it’s larger neighbours – Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Now having been to all three, we can’t understand for the life of us why. We’re not throwing shade on the two ‘dams, as far as city breaks go, they are great and have a lot to offer. However, The Hague has that certain something (well a lot of somethings, actually) extra for us. Therefore, we have put together this post all about our blissful beach break and exploring the highs of The Hague. The vibrant and cosmopolitan city centre and the two wonderful laid back beaches of The Hague (Scheveningen and Kijkduin) are all bursting with history, culture, great views, quirkiness and amazing food. It’s a city that has something for everyone. The closest airport is Amsterdam Airport Schiphol which is approximately 30 minutes by train from The Hague. […]

Going away on holiday is mostly a relaxing experience, where you can unwind from the whole hustle and bustle of your daily work. With just a few months away from summer, all you can think about is that well-earned holiday to escape the cold winter months and to have some worry-free days. It’s almost impossible to avoid the stress of modern life: a recent survey conducted by the Mental Health Foundation found that 74% of UK adults have felt so stressed that they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope, at some point over the last year. The last thing you’ll want is to be stressed on your holiday thinking about all the small jobs you still have to do at home – that annoying tap that keeps dripping, the kitchen cupboard that doesn’t close properly anymore and the lightbulb in your bathroom that stopped working. Sometimes all you need is to clear your mind from everything that’s happening back at home and just enjoy a two-week holiday in the Bahamas, or anywhere else in the world. The Handy Squad, a handyman service in London always understood this and took care of my home like it was theirs. Using a handyman […]
