    Mostar And Kravice Waterfall | A Day in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Where do I even start with visiting Mostar and Kravice Waterfall in Bosnia and Herzegovina? It’s a beautiful, quite sobering and worthy day trip from Dubrovnik. Even on a cold, wet, grey day, they were special – I can only imagine how glorious they will be when the sun is shining.

    I honestly never thought that it would be possible to safely visit the Balkan Peninsula. In 1991, Bosnia and Herzegovina joined several republics of the former Yugoslavia and declared independence, which triggered a civil war that lasted four years. The Bosnian War – a long, complex, and ugly conflict that followed the fall of communism in Europe – began & finished in living memory and it never crossed my mind that it would be possible to visit the previously war-torn countryside.

    Bicester Hotel Golf and Spa | A Shopping Staycation

    One of my best recommendations for beating the winter blues is having something lovely to look forward to. For me this January, it was a cheeky overnight girls trip to the Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa. Disclosure: We were guests of Bicester Hotel Golf and Spa, all in much need of some January cheer.

    The skies were altogether grey and damp, Christmas seemed to leave with all of the good cheer and I was already sick and tired of wearing a coat even festooned with a pretty scarf. (People that know me, will know of my extensive scarf collection which usually cheers me up no end, but it just wasn’t working its usual magic.)

    What to do in Grenada | Adventures on the Caribbean Spice Isle

    Wondering what to do in Grenada? Well, that is between lazing on one of the 45+ beaches and slipping to the nearest bar to try their unique rum punch… Follow me to a magical island, one full of exotic aroma, filled with laughter and the perfect place to adventure. Disclaimer: We were guests of Pure Grenada, the national tourism board, but all enthusing and rum cocktail enjoyment is very much my own.

    What to do in Grenada

    Before you start reading this list of what to do in Grenada, pop on a Soca playlist and grab a bristlin’ coconut to sip on. That’ll start the (e-)liming session off nicely. Then, conjure a little sunshine, a touch of tropical rain, book your comfortable flight and we’re in a very good place indeed.

    Grenada, the Caribbean Island of Spice [Pronounced Grin-AY-da]

    Words can’t really describe how much I was looking forward to escaping the dreary English winter for the tropical Caribbean island shores of Grenada. I was already fed up of getting caught in the icy rain and shrugging on layers of heavy clothing – and it was only the very start of the coldest season of the year. Disclaimer: We were guests of Pure Grenada, the national tourism board, but all enthusing and rum cocktail enjoyment is very much my own.

    I’d always dreamt of exploring the Caribbean – rowing to a teeny island with sparkling sands and palm trees waving over turquoise seas, but before I’d started blogging all those years ago I’d honestly never heard of Grenada.
