My Top Recommendations for a Great Weekend Break in Andalusia

The last stop on this years trip to Spain was to spend a few days at the family home, near Marbella in Andalusia. Most people who visit Andalusia head for the sun-soaked beaches of the Costa del Sol, but I wanted to spend my time here exploring some of the less touristy places. ...

My Cultural Granada City Break

I have visited Granada briefly on a couple of occasions in the past, but these visits were flying visits, maybe for a meal, or just a passing visit on the way to or from the ski resort in the Sierra Nevada.

Eindhoven City Break

While I was deciding on destinations for my Autumn 2016 city breaks I came across flights to Eindhoven with prices starting at £24 per person return.

So I thought I would book an Eindhoven city break so that I could discover what Eindhoven has to offer as a city break destination. ...

Marrakech City Break

For too long now I have wanted to lose myself in the sights, sounds and smells of Marrakech. From meandering the labyrinth of narrow streets and souks while dodging speeding mopeds and donkey drawn carts, to relaxing with a refreshing glass of mint tea while sampling some delicious local delicacies, and taking in the aromatic aromas from the souks. Marrakech, the 'Red City’ is a melting pot of cultures, cuisines and traditions, and for too long it has languished on my to-do list. The time had come to put a change to that and book a Marrakech city break. ...
