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!
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 ‘Confused.com’ as it is easy to get mislead!
Be warned, check that you are on the FREE NHS renewal site before applying an application!

This year we visited Sardinia for the second time, this time, the destination was Isolo Rossa in the North West of the island staying at the Hotel Relax Torreruja Thalasso & Spa. Pictures at: http://www.theimagealbum.co.uk/blog/index.php/blog/nggallery/page/2?page_id=1396/
This was one of the most relaxing and quiet holiday destinations we have been too for a long time! Food was excellent, at least for us, and the kindness of the staff was well received!

The following restaurants have been tried and tested and are worthy of a visit:
Cafe Nem, a local Vietnamese Restaurant with excellent variety of mouth-watering dishes!
Saher Restaurant, a local Mediterranean Restaurant serving a selection of Italian, Turkish and Lebanese food, highly recommended!
