Dubrovnik is an amazing and very busy tourist hub but well worth the effort.
Not for the ‘faint of foot’ with all it’s steps but enough to interest even the ‘light footed’ on a reasonable level. Great views, every turn has something to offer and so many food outlets to suit all tastes. It does get quite busy and there are rumours that numbers may be controlled to the old city to prevent overcrowding!  Magical place . . . .view our images

Isabella Plantation, Richmond Park

A late May visit to a lovely woodland area called Isabella plantation in the central area of Richmond Park.  Ideally, the beginning of May would have been better as the colours of the various fauna and flora are at their best!  There was enough to delight on this visit and despite a forecast for a cloudy day, the weather was perfect for the visit.  Highly recommended for those of you who enjoy woodland walks, the beauty of nature and the tranquil environment that these spaces offer.

Sardinia 2015

Hotel Flamingo in the south of Sardinia – May, early season!

Sardinia trip just a few days away, hopefully some new images of Cagliari, the capital!

For 2016, we had planned to celebrate our 40th at Villa Sant Andrea in Taormina, Sicily! We received news from our travel agent and even though the hotel offered us a stay at 2015 prices, far too expensive at just over £14,000!  Now looking at alternatives within budget!

European Health Insurance Cards

A recent foray into the world of renewal opened my eyes to the online process!  Apparently, you need to be very careful on which link you chose when using a search engine for the EHIC card application!  With the NHS renewal is FREE but if you are not vigilant, you can be linked to a site that ‘appears’ to be the legitimate NHS EHIC renewal site only to find out the site is a ‘third party’ and will process but charge you a fee!

The ASA took one such site to task in September last year due to a complaint of being misleading and the complaint was upheld but the sites are still misleading in my eyes regardless of what they print on their pages!  They should be part of ‘’ as it is easy to get mislead!


Be warned, check that you are on the FREE NHS renewal site before applying an application!
