It’s the day before our flight comes, and it’s time to head to the hotel. This is going to be the big give away – we only ever stay in the Gatwick Holiday Inn for one reason.
So, continuing the story of the best kept secret in the history of the Minchin household.
You may recall in the first instalment that I had reluctantly decided to treat my beloved to her dream destination. And having secured the flights and hotel, it was time to book the all important Donny & Marie concert that was the whole point of the trip.

Well, it really wasn’t a surprise for me. But let me tell you how it came to pass that I found myself willingly conspiring with myself to take Sue to see the sights and lights of Las Vegas (you did know that its called ‘Sin City’ right? I didn’t – I had to google it).
We don’t have a bucket list, but if we did, Sue would have Las Vegas up there in the top three, but the place wouldn’t be on mine at all.

Day two of our Irish visit started with a heavy frost, and a hearty breakfast from our host. I must admit, we haven’t stayed in bed and breakfasts since our courting days, and was a little sceptical about going B&B rather than hotels, but Joe convinced me and he was proven right.
If you are looking for a good hotel in Las Vegas, then I’m afraid to say you are spoiled for choice. And we are no experts, as we’ve only been the once, and we’ve only had one experience of a hotel over there. But it was a good experience, so we will tell you more…
For a long time one of Great Britain’s best kept secrets, when the activities of Bletchley Park were final revealed to all after it was declassified under the Official Secrets Act, a race was underway to restore the rapidly decaying huts where hundreds of men and women (mostly women) served relentlessly to decipher enemy messages which were to shorten the war significantly.
Many years later, and after many years of tireless restoration, the Park now stands to inform and commemorate many unsung heroes of the second world war.
Did the earth move for you? I can’t believe we were in the middle of an earthquake and didn’t realise it! See this and more in the last part of Sue’s surprise trip to vegas.

I don’t want to make a habit of reviewing the same places over and over again, but I’m making an exception in the case of Paradise Lake Lodges…
