Four Days in Fes- ‘Just Like That’ - By Samantha Owen-Stoddart
After visiting the Costa del Sol over Christmas time, I wanted to write a short blog about what there is to see and where you can venture too whilst enjoying southern Spain! I rented a car (the least said about that the better…) as I wanted to get out and about and see this lovely part of Spain. I remember fondly family holidays in this region, I am not sure if you’ll agree, but it seems the older I become the more appreciative I am for seeing places or discovering parts I have never seen. This is how I feel about the Costa del Sol and why I was so determined to travel along this stretch of coastline.
Spanish City ‘Making the most out of Malaga’
Fes has always been a place of fascination for us, due to our joint love of ‘magical’ Morocco. Having secured some cheap return flights and our accommodation through the lovely Riad Tizwa, who owns a sister riad near the old medina, we were set…
Now & Again- Returning to Now Sapphire, Mexico - By Samantha Owen-Stoddart
Back in May whilst I was travelling around Gdansk in Poland, Adam booked us two return flights with Easyjet to Malaga for November. Firstly as they were a fantastic deal and secondly because that’s the kind of lovely person he is! Always super supportive of my travel blog, to which I am thankful. When we discussed accommodation, he happily booked a place we had been to see a year earlier on a Boxing Day trip to the city, called Dulces Dreams. It was a small hotel, very central to everything and cheap. Our booking was confirmed and we began planning our trip…
R & R @ The Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort - by Samantha Owen-Stoddart
In May I travelled to Mexico and made a return trip to the Now Sapphire resort for the third time. I first visited in 2013 to celebrate my 30th birthday, as a surprise gift from my husband after he had heard such great comments about the hotel and again in 2015 to holiday with family. Each time I feel lucky enough to say I have met great people from others parts of the world, who I now count as good friends. That is one the joy’s of travel, you meet new people and friendships grow all in the shared passion of seeing the world.
I have wanted to visit Zanzibar for some time now, more out of Intrigue through seeing photos or videos of the Island. After booking the trip nearly a year ago, I spent some time looking and researching where I wanted to stay and see. After speaking to many people, some who had previously visited, I was set on staying on the North Coast. Nungwi was the area I picked, mainly due to it’s beautiful coastline and white sandy beaches, a perfect base…
