Chew valley lake is a beautiful spot in North Somerset. It’s only a half an hour drive from Bristol down country roads with spectacular views. Close to Chew Magna, this spot is becoming more and more popular with families and the recent addition of “Salt and Malt” fish and chips has definitely caused an influx
Rome is a beautiful city, brimming with history and the most amazing churches. We had enough time in 4 days to revisit a couple of our favourite spots but would still love to return. Had the weather been slightly towards the end of our trip, we would’ve also had time to visit Florence. But we
There are lots quirky things to see and do on Nusa Lembongan. The island is much bigger than the Gili’s but it is easy to travel around the whole island on a moped (with one main road covering the length of the island). We spent a day exploring which gave us another day to go

We experienced a few restaurants during our short stay on Koh Tao and I have to recommend a couple of places that we really enjoyed for both food and drinks: Su Chilli – great for a cheap Thai meal, incredibly quick service and so is good for if the meal needs to be quick to
As I have already mention in my “Arriving in Koh Samui post ” there are plenty of places eat and some cool spots to relax on the beach in Bophut. Although there are loads of restaurants to choose from without a reservation needed; Rob is great at researching the best spots to go before we go on
I was very excited for my first trip to Asia and my first holiday with Rob!
