A Tapa Weekend in Malaga:

February 24th, 2018

The city of Malaga has really started to shine in recent years. A few decades ago, almost all tourists would fly into Malaga Airport and whizz along to the famous beach resorts along the coast without thinking one bit about visiting the provincial capital. But tides are changing, and over the last 20 years, more […]


Views of Porto from Ponte de Dom Luis I:

February 22nd, 2018

In my opinion, some of the best views of the Portugese city of Porto are from the top deck of the Ponte de Dom Luis I. This double decker metal arch bridge opened in 1886. I’m not sure that the current set-up of a pedestrian walkway alongside the Metro tracks, with no barriers would be […]


Visiting the Dovecoat Studios in Edinburgh:

February 15th, 2018

If you are interested in art, especially textiles, I recommend a visit to the Dovecoat Studios in Edinburgh. They are located in Infirmary Street, around a ten minute walk from Waverley Railway Station. The building was formerly a public baths. I loved the installation in the stairwell. There’s a viewing gallery where you can look […]


Review of Hotels.com Rewards Loyalty Programme:

February 10th, 2018

Hotel.com is one of the best known hotel booking websites. Their Rewards loyalty scheme offers one free night’s stay if you book ten nights through their website. Initially, it seems appealing to get something for nothing. However, it’s not that straightforward once you scratch below the surface. Not all hotel stays count towards the free […]


House for an Art Lover in Glasgow:

February 8th, 2018

I finally got around to visiting the House for an Art Lover during the Glasgow Doors Open event in 2017. The house was designed in 1901 by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife Margaret Macdonald as an entry for a German design magazine competition. However construction of the House for an Art Lover wasn’t started […]


Easyjet Runway Closure Flight Delay: Treatment and Compensation:

February 5th, 2018

Approximately 48h before my flight from Thessaloniki, Greece to London Gatwick on Dec 1, 2017, I received two text messages from Easyjet. My flight was going to be leaving from Athens instead, due to runway closure issues. Instead, I had to turn up at the airport and take a bus, which would leave 40min before […]


A Winter’s Morning Walk in Broughty Ferry, Dundee:

February 1st, 2018

Wneh I stayed at the Fisherman’s Tavern in Broughty Ferry, a coastal suburb north of Dundee city centre, in late November, I decided to go for a walk along the Tay Estuary immediately after breakfast. It was a really sunny, but cold and breezy, morning. Broughty Ferry RNLI station is located close to the Fisherman’s […]


Carmen Thyssen Museum Malaga Spain:

January 25th, 2018

In the Spanish city of Malaga, most museums are free to enter on Sunday in the late afternoon/evening. I was torn between the Picasso Museum and the Carmen Thyssen. Both museums were free from 5pm, the Picasso closed at 7pm and the Carmen Thyssen at 8pm. I’d been warned that I might have to queue […]


Review of Peebles Hydro Hotel:

January 18th, 2018

i stayed at the Peebles Hydro Hotel in the Scottish Borders on a Wednesday night in November 2017. I paid £36 for a single room, including breakfast, on the Amoma hotel booking website. I arrived at the hotel around 3pm, just as it was starting to rain. I couldn’t find a space to park the […]


Do You Read Your Hotel Reviews Before Stepping Onto the Plane?:

January 12th, 2018

We’ve all heard the scams about cockroach infested hotels, legionnaire’s disease, unclean nylon sheets, paint peeling off the walls, dirty windows….if you’ve watched ‘The Hotel’ in the UK you’ve probably seen some of them. Fawlty Towers is not the done thing these days. There are many ways to book your holiday and choose your hotel […]
