Villas vs Hotels – Which Is Better For Your Next Holiday?

Villas vs Hotels – Which Is Better For Your Next Holiday?

So you’re planning a holiday and you just can’t decide which one to choose, do I stay in a villa? Or do I go for a hotel? A post on a facebook group called ‘We All Love Orlando Holidays’ sparked this idea off in my mind and I thought I’d write about it. After all, last year in one-week Emma and I did both. So, I felt I would share my experiences of three pros and cons for each in…

Mexico, a country known for drugs, violence and immigration issues, has stolen our hearts. The fact is, Mexico City and the North West may be pretty dodgy for your average tourist, but the Caribbean Coast is simply incredible. All one has to do is to fly into Cancun airport,…

Photos: The Great Snow of 2018 (Storm Emma)

At the beginning of March 2018 we, living in the humble countryside of the South West of England, were hit with a four day long snow storm. Nicknamed #StormEmma by the media, it forced schools to close and roads to shut. The Met Office issued something I’d never seen before, a Red Alert for ‘danger to life’, and we were all advised to stay at home. Reports came in of motorists stranded in their cars for fifteen hours straight. Intrigued…

London.

London.

London has endured a bit of bad rep lately with the likes of shocking terrorist incidents in the news, violent assaults and thefts by moped gangs in broad daylight and reports of sexual assaults on the underground. Even though I’ve ventured out to the big city many times before, this well travelled Devon born lad felt a little bit anxious when Emma and I visited recently for a day out.

We Drove A Brand New Peugeot Across The Devon Countryside

We took the 3008 SUV for a drive across Dartmoor before heading down into Cornwall and we filmed the entire day for your viewing pleasure. Now I’ll start by saying I am by no means a professional in the…
