Rumour Has It….Cape Verde

As usual, I spent a lot of time scouring reviews and reading up on this destination well before my holiday. Funny how two people can go to the exact same place, experience the same things and come away with opposing points of view on how good or bad it was. This time I thought I’d […]

Barbados: Yellow Bird Hotel

I’m a stickler for reviews, Trip Adviser etc…and was really impressed with the overwhelming positive feedback on this hotel. Furthermore, it’s very reasonably priced in comparison to the big east/west coast, all-inclusive resorts. If you’re on a tight budget, or want to claw back more money for spending, you could easily spend your entire holiday using […]

Please watch your step, and don’t tread on any passing turtles like I almost did, they are everywhere, and will […]

Another Not So Warm Welcome in Grenada, St George.

So we decided to eat like the locals and pop into a restaurant/cafe in the hustle and bustle of St George. Sample some local cuisine I thought, give some custom to local businesses (who you’d think would appreciate it more than your bigger more flourishing hotel empires), surely this couldn’t go horribly wrong. Surely not. Well sadly it […]

Quick Pizza? Not So Fast.

It may be known as fast food but pizza actually takes up a heck of a lot of your time to make from scratch. By the time you make the dough, knead it, leave it to sit and double in size (approx 45 mins), come back and roll it out, chop/prepare all your toppings, dress the […]

Nutribullet: What’s all the fuss about?

I bought my Nutribullet during the time of the mad rush when all the main retailers were sold out, it was a crazy fiasco, but I’m sure that’s all calmed down now. Like most people, I was drawn in by the strong advertising campaign, promoting a healthier/more nutritious lifestyle. I have no regrets. It’s a […]
