Last day I was up early this morning! 8:30! I woke up naturally too; that’s a shocker! But I am ready for home. I’ve enjoyed my ‘relax’ time. It’s really not my regular choice of holidays, but on this occasion, it was fit for purpose! Not good at doing nothing on holiday, but it’s for exactly what I asked for. As I’d half packed last night, I had very little to do this morning. My case is only a small 10k case, so not much to go in it! Also, I haven’t bought anything, so no extra luggage to carry. I generally do like to treat myself when I’m away, but there was nothing that I wanted! Mallorca is known for its pearls, when I was here about 15 years ago I bought myself a nice ... read more

Day 5, do nothing day! I can’t lie, this blogging in a relaxation, do nothing beach week is hard going! I don’t think I’ll be agreeing to do it again Kate. I just feel like I don’t do, or see anything to write home about!!! But I promised, so I’ll do it to the end. I’ll not be making it into a book though… ha ha! But you would have loved this morning Kate…. With your nosey inclinations! I had such a rude awakening at 5am! There are a couple of lads next door to me. I’m guessing it was a drunken night out, that led to an early morning walk home! There was a lot of banging and clashing. I had a vision of him/them being synonymous to a pinball machine! Noise done, I’m guessing ... read more

Day 4 Ooohhh… a late start to the blog today. …. And it’s not because I’m busy!!! The morning started at 10:30. That’s about average for me these days! I’m thinking it will be a sunbathing day, although I’m not particularly good at it! I might try the pool out, I’ll see what the set up is when I get down there. It’s all definitely going at a slower pace today! I caught the cleaning lady for fresh towels. I don’t think there is any need for a clean up, or a bed change. As I’ve got two beds, I can do a couple of nights in one, then just swap to the other one! Also two sets of towels, so that’s all I need right now. After my shower, and getting ready it was about ... read more

Day 3 Wow, I slept like a baby last night! I woke up at 9:25!! I was n the balcony, checking Facebook etc, the cleaner came in, and frightened the absolute life out of me! When you’re travelling solo, the last thing you expect is someone saying, ‘hi’ in the morning! I nearly fell off my chair. We both fell about laughing, then agreed I didn’t need cleaning services today. I got showered and sorted,and ready to go for breakfast. I’ve got a little kick in my step today. It could be because I’m getting out, and about. I enjoyed a light breakfast today. I had muesli, followed by a bit of scrambled egg and a piece of toast. Enough is enough! Sadly, the coffee was rubbish, but not to worry, I will make that my ... read more

Day 2 I was tossing and turning a lot last night. It wasn’t a great night’s sleep, but I feel fine this morning! I woke up at 6:30 because I forgot to turn my work alarm off! I got back into bed and had a couple more hours good sleep. By the time I actually got up, showered and sorted, it was 9:30. I went down for breakfast in the hotel. I considered going out for breakfast, but decided to ‘eat in’ until I get oriented. It’s all very closed in around the hotel. It is hotel, after hotel, brick on brick. It’s very different to what I’m used to, but it seems fit for purpose. I’m on the seventh floor. Looking out this morning, I see that I am a stones throw from the marina. ... read more

Mallorca beach week! Well, this is going to be a very different blog! I do not usually blog in these little trips: but as I’ve had a special request from Kate, I am giving it a go! Kate asked me to do it due to her extreme quality; which is that she is a self-confessed, very nosey person! I honestly can’t imagine how this is going to go! To be fair, I don’t even know what I will blog about, especially as I am travelling solo! But here goes Kate! To anyone who is not interested, I’ll apologise now for the emails, just delete them! But if you’re enjoying it…. Comment, and let me know! My morning started very well. I slept in until about 10:30, the perfect beginning to a day! I would have done ... read more

Europe » United Kingdom » England » Greater London June 23rd 2023

It was a tough, ‘get up’ this morning. The lack of solid sleep is kicking in a bit more with each day! I had a bit of a sleep in today, 8am for breakfast. Jamie joined me for breakfast, so that allowed for a nice reflection/catch up chat. Although I did feel like I was sat with a celebrity as everyone was coming up to thank, and hug him as they all prepared to leave. As I was day with him, I received many goodbye hugs at the time! I have to say Jamie…. It’s been an honour, and a pleasure to travel with you, you smashed it! My bag is just about done and ready to go. I’m so pleased that I took time last night to get it done! I’m having my final coffee ... read more

Europe » Belgium » West Flanders » Bruges June 22nd 2023

This morning had a spritely start! I was back in my room for about 10:30pm last night…I think! I had the time to totally reorganise my bag, ready for the homeward journey. Also prepared my clothes and handbag too! I definitely sleep better when organised. If I’m not, it puts me on a mental back foot! Consequently, I slept like a baby!Hence being spritely today!! This morning we are heading for Belgium, so far so good. I’ve been watching a series of Cake Squad on my iPad to amuse myself! It’s a great tip for anyone travelling. Download programmes, series and films to your tablet or iPad before travelling. You can then view at your pleasure with no need for internet. Also, add a hdmi to iPad adapter to enable you to watch it on the ... read more

Catch up from karaoke night! About 16 of us got Ubers, and went into town. We headed straight for the karaoke bar…. By massive demand. Jamie booked us in at 24 karat Karaoke, and I have to say, everyone delivered, some more than others, but I’d say that’s normal! I certainly did my share of entertaining! It was an all round great night. Jamie blasted it out of the water! We got back to the hotel at around 1:30am. That’s my latest night in a long time! …. And I had 3 halves of lager!!! I certainly haven’t done that for a long time too!! I have no picture evidence, but some might leak out later! Breakfast went well today, a huge improvement on yesterday! Everyone seemed to make it to breakfast this morning, which I ... read more

The German adventure continues this morning! We leave the historic sights of Nuremberg behind and head towards the enchanting Rhine Valley. We are up for breakfast at 7-7:30 for breakfast. Then its on the bus for 8am departure. It was tough for me today! I got up ok at 6:30, but then snoozed on for 10 minutes. Not the best idea! I finally got up, feeling ok, I always seem to feel a bit ‘heady’, that’s been pretty normal first think in the morning! So no change there, I don’t notice it yet, but I’m so damn slow this morning!! I can’t decide what wear, just slowly plodding around, then I look at my watch….?it’s five to bloody eight!!! OMG…the coach leaves at 8!!!! There goes everything!!!! Cereal, breakfast, toast, coffee, water… everything!!! I’m running ... read more
