Review: Fiesta Cala Nova, Ibiza

Nestled next to a small beach at the northern end of Es Cana, Ibiza, the Fiesta Cala Nova is a traditional three star Spanish hotel which probably hasn’t change much in terms of style since it was built, and yet shows little sign of wear and manages to keep up very high standards.

Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal, Mexico

The world is a big place and there are dozens if not hundreds of places we would like to visit (some close to home, some thousands of miles away) and so it makes sense not to waste time going back to the same place twice. Continue reading “Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal, Mexico”

Review: Red Wings Lodge, Dunstable

Tucked on the A5 near Hockcliffe, the Red Wings Lodge Dunstable is a basic but friendly motel style hotel, reminiscent of travelodge, but with a few personal, friendly touches that probably elevate it slightly above the normal travelodge standard.

Video review: British Airways i360

Back in March (I know!  Halfway through July already – I will be starting to plan the Christmas party video soon)  we visited Brighton and the British Airways i360 experience.   You can read the whole review here and now you can experience a little of it for yourself by watching our video review on our youtube channel:

Lanzarote Live!

It’s never ceases to amaze me how many little video clips I manage to accumulate in even the shortest holiday, and it takes forever to edit them all up into a short video.   I wish I could get the hang of filming in a continuous, sequential fashion so there is no editing to be done.   Any tips?  It’s not really the way I work but I’ll have to give it a try, or keep suffering the days worth of editing.    Hope it’s worth it! Right – time to move on to the 300+ clips available for part 2!   Hope you enjoy the video.
