It’s been nearly two years but I’ve been hoping to return to Paradise Lake Lodges and have another go at the huge carp in the lake, so here we are again, this time in a bigger lodge with hot tub and with my brother, sister in law and mother in tow. And obviously Sue of course! The site is under new management so stay tuned to see how they compare with our last stay which you can read about here.
So, if you’ve been following my TUI blog and tweets you will know that we had some appalling service from TUI during our Ibiza holiday and I felt compelled to complain to them about it. Yes, me, complain! It’s unheard of! Continue reading “TUI – Result!!! (No, sorry, just kidding)”
Had a pleasant surprise today when I checked my YouTube site. Firstly the hotel chain where we stayed in Mexico had posted a comment saying they liked my video of our stay and asked if they could use it in their marketing, social media sites and websites… Continue reading “YouTube is getting interesting!”
Dotting the ‘i’s and crossing the ‘t’s is inference to someone paying very close attention to the smallest of details. The irony cannot be overstated in our latest sojourn to Ibiza in the less than capable hands of TUI, who we affectionately remember as Thomsons from years gone past… Continue reading “TUI or not TUI, that is the question…”
It’s fair to say I started my passion for writing travel reviews from reading, and later writing pieces for tripadvisor. Unfortunately, I’ve brought that to an end…

I am currently sat around the pool in a little three star in Ibiza, contemplating my next post while reading some tweets about abhorrent travel bloggers and feel compelled to put in my ten-penneth as my mum used to say.

So, Ibiza is apparently well known for its beautiful sunsets. Now I don’t want to burst this particular marketing bubble but I’m fairly sure it will be a similar sunset to the ones in Majorca and Menorca and other nearby locations. Putting that aside, it helps if you are sat on the west coast when it happens (on on the Port side of a cruise ship sailing north). Unfortunately for us, our hotel in Es Cana faces due east so sunsets aren’t its biggest asset. Sunrises on the other hand should be equally awesome… Continue reading “Best laid plans…”
I mean, is it just me or is this year going INCREDIBLY quickly? Due to changes in our holiday allocation at work, our holiday schedule has been slightly curtailed this year – and we have already completed the majority of our visits for this year.
But don’t panic, because we’ve still got a few surprises to come before its time to start planning next year.
We just arrived back from Mexico for the second time in two years so I’ve got to finish off our review and finishing compiling the video which will complement the blog post on our youtube channel, which of course you are subscribing to – aren’t you??? If not, you can find it here.
Coming soon, our grandchildren take Sue for her first visit to Harry Potter World (Hmmm, I’m sure it should be the other way around).
And last but not least, we are off to visit the beautiful and hopefully warm island of Ibiza – it’s our first time here except for a day in Ibiza Old Town while on one of our many cruises. As all of our impressions of Ibiza revolve around the much publicised bar scene, it will be interesting to see if there is a different side of the island suitable to those whose raving days are well behind them.
So, I hope you have enjoyed our updates so far, I hope you enjoying the gorgeous UK summer we have at the moment, and we both hope you’ll come back soon and keep visiting our blog and youtbe channel. And don’t forget, you can find us on twitter and facebook too.
See you soon!
