Having spent four days embracing all that the enchanting city of Havana has to offer, by the fifth day we are made up of 30% culture and 70% rum. It’s time to redress the balance a little: we clearly need more rum. The journey time […]

Havana Good Time

  Our trip to Cuba kicks off with a two-hour delay at Gatwick; as soon as I clock the uber-glam trolley dollies on our Virgin Atlantic flight I’ve sussed out why: it must’ve taken them at least that long to get their make-up on. And that’s […]

Vacation Anticipation

A ‘Dam Fine Weekend

The alarm rudely shakes me from my slumber: 2.30am. I groan and roll over, noticing the bed is empty. Andy’s not only up, he’s showered, dressed and sitting by the front door next to his suitcase. Someone’s excited for our Amsterdam city break….An hour later […]
