3 day mini cruise in Amsterdam – brothels, beer, bicycles and beyond

I recently returned from a 3day mini cruise in the buzzing city of Amsterdam. As an Amsterdam virgin, I had no idea what to expect – especially with its wild reputation. Brothels, beer, bicycles and beyond… Amsterdam is like a lighter, airier, waterier, smaller, friendlier version of New York. I am yet to visit New York – but I look forward to comparing the similarity in the near future. Amsterdam is full of canals and people riding bikes which mean much less traffic, less polution, less noise. As soon as you step into Amsterdam, you’re hit with the iconic views of […]

Seaton beach in the winter….

I like the sea and the beach at winter. In summer the beach is too over crowded don’t you think? Empty beaches during a cloudy and windy day have something magical, Don’t you think? I like to walk along an empty beach, listening to the waves, the seagulls and organise my thoughts. This weekend called for a road-trip to Seaton Beach near Hartlepool. We wrapped up warm with our scarfs, gloves and coats. I still manged to get a cold and currently dosed up on medicine covered in vapour rub Vic as I write this… We had some fish and chips, No […]

Time to join the gym & fat club!

I have tried many diets and failed. You name it, I will have have tried it. Juice diets, skipping meals, cabbage soups and shakes. None of these were ever suitable for me. I always lacked motivation to carry on with them.  I’d always end up gaining as it made me miserable aswell as eat everything in sight. I never really taught myself or educated myself around food and always went for a quick fix – Thats not the way it works. If it was easy to lose a stone over night everyone would be doing it. Quick fixes don’t last… […]

Body Worlds Animals Inside Out comes to the North East

We decided to spent out new years eve day taking a road-trip to Newcastle to visit the Life Science Center to experience the Body Worlds Animals Inside exhibition and were hoping it was just as good as the previous one. A lot of people believe that it would be distressing and a bit gruesome but you shouldn’t. I would be wary of letting smaller children in but the older children will love it. Only you would be able to decide around your children but always check prior regarding ages usually this can be found on the website.   What? Gunther […]

Choosing the right camera

I recently upgraded to a DSLR camera from bridge Coolpix which I had love, love, loved.  My pictures captured of the Supermoon were taken with my Coolpix and Its fitted me perfectly however it was time to move on.  I ummed and ahhed about which new camera to buy for a long time and nearly bought a Canon. In the end it came down to the fact that I am planning on buying a new Laptop etc and so I didn’t want to spend a fortune right now on a new camera and lenses.   I don’t think I could […]

Introducing Cala San Vicente

Mallorca is top of the summer holiday charts for many reasons, but one ranks above all others: the island’s stunning coast. We stayed at SENTIDO Don Pedro in Cala San Vicente. We decided to visit the ever popular star of the Mediterranean, Mallorca for a week thanks to its ravishing beaches, azure views, remote mountains and soulful hill towns. Only regret we have is we didn’t stay longer. This hotel is set on a little cove between two sandy beaches within walking distance of Puerto Pollensa. It is based in remote location with only a few bars and restaurants in […]
