Three books I’ve read recently that I couldn’t put down

I go through phases with reading, but recently I have been in a definite reading phase and always had a book on the go. I am a very fussy reader and if I find that I am not completely into a book it becomes a chore for me to read and I just won’t finish it. I have to be engrossed in the story to the point that I feel like I can’t carry on with my life until I have found out what happens, which means that the books I like to read tend to be gritty crime books with lots of twists. I have been pretty lucky recently and read quite a few page turners, so I thought it was only fair that I share three of them with you. View Post

Sidi Bou Said, Tunisia

About twenty miles outside of Tunisia’s capital Tunis is the pretty town of Sidi Bou Said famous for its white washed walls and signature blue doors. The town is built on a cliff which means there are plenty of cafés where you can sip on Tunisian sweet tea whilst watching the sun go down. View Post

A costal drive in Mallorca

This month my partner and I were in Mallorca for five days. Now I have been to Mallorca before… but that was ten years ago and I didn’t venture out of the sleepy (haha!) town of Magaluf so the less said about that the better. This time I was here for a wedding and to chill out, but me being me I couldn’t spend all my free time by the pool so on one of the days we headed out in our hire car for a day trip up the coast.

A whistle-stop tour of Jordan: Petra and The Dead Sea

I recently managed to do a big tick off my bucket list in Jordan by visiting the world wonder that is Petra, along with the lowest point of earth, The Dead Sea. We only had two days for this trip and so once again I am here to show you how to see big sights in a short time and also on a limited budget. View Post
