Welcome back to Part 2 of my Cuba travel posts! Picking up from where I left off, the tour continues, moving from the North Western tip of Cuba towards the East, with the final stop on this leg of the journey being Trinidad. But first, we stopped for a quick walking tour around the French… Continue reading Cuba Adventures – Trinidad, Cienfuegos and Santa Clara
Cuba is unique, like no other country i’ve been to before. That’s no surprise given it’s dramatic history and an economic embargo that has kept the country in a time warp for over 50 years. And with signs of relations with the US thawing, this could change. So, there’s really never been a better time… Continue reading Cuba Adventures – Vinales, Las Terrazas, Cayo Jutias
It’s always nice to get away in winter and catch some sun. The problem is that most of Europe is probably cold and wet! So, if you want some actual heat, you need to venture further afield, not ideal if you’re looking for a short break.

Having said that, it’s not as… Continue reading Pizza in Napoli!
The Amalfi coast has so many beautiful towns and villages. You could easily spend weeks here, moving from one place to another. Sadly, I only had one week so I visited the standard ‘must-see’ places, including Ravello, which can be reached by bus from Amalfi. Amalfi has a very different vibe to Positano and is a lot… Continue reading Reaching heights in Ravello
Ah Capri, you are one heck of an island! I think Capri is definitely one of my favourite places in all of Italy (and that’s saying something)! Capri is a dream, literally like being on the set of a glamorous movie. The minute you approach the island on the ferry, the colour of the water hits… Continue reading Movie magic in Capri
