Where I've Been


Favourite Holidays



I have been lucky enough to travel to travel to Ireland this year - on a wonderful guided holiday with Trafalgar Tours  -  See the world from the inside  - which they  truly do show you Ireland from a  locals perspective  with lots of hidden treasures .
Some of the highlights were the Ring of Kerry and the Cliffs of Mohair . 
And if you are travelling to Belfast - you must do a Black Cab tour of the city and you will get a true local's version of the troubles  - but if you go with Trafalgar it will be included anyway  -  an highlight was kissing the Blarney Stone and a magical night staying at the incredible Ashford Castle  - truly felt like a princess !                    


One of my most favourite places to visit would have to be Thailand  - I've been lucky enough to visit 6 times  - and I'm always dreaming of going back . 
 I love the people , the beaches and the food  - my favourite  spot there would have to be Lamai beach - Koh Samui  - yes it is a bit crazy there and full of tourists - but that is all part of the fun - I can't wait to get back there! 

Quantum of the Seas

I have just been lucky enough to do a cruise on this amazing cruise ship  - it is easy to see way cruising is one of the fastest growing travel trends . The ship was incredible  - a choice of 18 restaurant's , numerous bars and plenty to do on board . There is even a shopping arcade , a flow rider ( surf pool ) and a Ifly  ( sky diving )
