To quote #seasicksteve “If you're going to sing a song about drinking wine then you should, drink some wine”. In my case, it’s writing, rather than singing. Working on the next article which will be on Molise’s native grape #Tintilia . A quick intro this week with a deeper dive at a later date.
For an unforgettable holiday golf, book a round at the splendid Royal Palm in Marrakech. There is terrific variety and it's enjoyably testing without being too penal, albeit with a handful of very challenging holes. The par 3s at six and seventeen come highly rated.
There’s still 12 days left to organise your ‘Sexy Pirates’ social and send us the proof! 🏴☠️ Your crew could be manning one of these boats this Summer!!! We are still waiting for your crazy entries 🥳

Viney Holiday Properties have two large family holiday cottages both with heated swimming pools. Perfect for groups of 12-18 people - birthdays, reunions or just because......
Out 6 night retreats include a day on the seas with a passionate hero of sustainable fishing, Paolo il Pescatore! Help him pull in the nets, swim in the crystal clear Mediterranean waters to a private beach, and enjoy a Prosecco lunch on board.
Although we did spot a bit of blue sky yesterday, thought I'd post this photo of Mevagissey, taken earlier in the month. Mevagissey is on the south coast, originally a pilchard fishing village, its still has a working harbour, with a passenger ferry service to Fowey. With busy narrow streets, making it easier to park outside and wander through. #an_bowji#mevagissey
I N C I D E N T A L E X E R C I S E !! Lets be honest, it can sometimes be hard to get enough structured exercise into your day-to-day routine. Life gets busy, I get it. But did you know there are other ways to boost your activity levels that don’t include going to the gym or out for a run?
One strategy that often comes up to help offset the impact of missed sessions during a busy period is making a conscious effort to ⬆️ INCREASE ⬆️incidental exercise. ⚠️Incidental exercise⚠️ is defined as any activity built up in small amounts over the course of day (Queensland Health, 2018). It tends to be less structured than a planned singular bout of activity, and can occur in many forms.
Here are some examples:
🚸Taking the stairs instead of the lift/escalator.
❗Walking to the shops/bus stop/train station.
🚸Choosing to park the car further away.
🚸Playing with mates/your kids at a park.
❗Short bursts of gardening.
🚸Cleaning around the house.
❗Standing up and moving around the office whilst at work.
🚸If on holiday = go for a surf, walk/ cycle everywhere as you explore, do walking tours. ✅ YES !! You STILL NEED TO GET YOUR WORKOUTS IN ✅ but Incidental exercise can help to keep you mobile, burn energy and remain fit. Incidentals also keep different muscles and tendons in check, offer some variety to your existing routine and can be great ways to get outside in nature!
. 🏃🏾♀️My choice is counting Steps (average 10 -14k steps each day) especially when on holiday as a gym might not always be an accessible option. 🏃🏾♀️ Not only did i hit my daily steps but I also managed to get a good gym session in EVERYDAY and hit the waves as well.
Here’s ESCAPE B-Easy Dance Steps and B-Cool Expression class teacher Bradley @bcharles47 in action on home turf.
Dancer, actor and DJ Bradley’s 15+ years’ dancing experience has allowed him to perform internationally. Still, he remains humbled by his successes and names staring as a lead character (Frankie) in STREETDANCE3D, as well as, performing and choreographing for the Opening Ceremony 2012 Olympic games as his career highlights to date.
This weekends repeat guests always start their stay with a smoked salmon platter in their room. Luckily storm Dennis didn’t ruin their stay too much apart from a 4 hour journey home instead of the usual 1.25 hours! I didn’t strip the rooms just in case either set of guests had to come back and stay an extra night.
Another highlight not to be missed in the capital city is Louvre Abu Dhabi. It's a great museum that has succeeded in bringing civilisations closer. All artefacts and statues are displayed in a chronological order, showing the similarities among them rather than differences.
The architecture is a masterpiece on its own, designed by the renowned architect and pritzker prize winner, Jean Nouvel. It's a brilliant work making the museum building it's own highlight.
#Persian food ranks high on lists of the world's best cuisines and is well worth exploring. You won't be disappointed with the incredible variety, exotic seasoning and innovative ingredient combinations that await you. Iran consists of Arab, Lor, Kurd and Persian ethnics that each of these groups of the country has played a part in shaping Persian’s cuisine via traditional recipes, methods of cooking, and ingredients. This photo features the most famous Persian foods to seek out in restaurants and in Iranian homes. Do you know what these foods are? .

This exotic beachside escape is just a short tuk-tuk ride from a beautiful Unesco World Heritage Site – we review the 5* @amarigalle Resort. Head online to read our latest article.
These two are just the best big sisters!
Ok so they do lock her out of the playroom at times so she doesn’t spoil their games, and pin her down when she’s stollen something of theirs, but most of the time they help her and play together.
Yes they do squabble from time time time, don’t they all?! But we are so lucky that they really are best friends... Do your children get on? .
Today Ewa & I went exploring (obviously joined by Shelly) to find some new nature walks. For those who like to stretch their legs before settling into an afternoon of wine tasting, we found the perfect place.
The wood above the town of Castelmauro provides fantastic tracks under shaded trees with an open air-chapel (a surprise to find) and some incredible views of the surrounding countryside.
Also conveniently we had to drive past two great vineyards on the way home….next time I think we’ll be stopping.

#Responsible tourism should be accessible to all #travellers . According to #ResponsibleTravel , what all of the trips have in common is that they take into account the need to adapt activities, but also assume that with the right assistance in place a person with limited mobility can do practically anything that an able-bodied traveller can.
On UpPersia the itineraries are carefully crafted around the individual needs of a group with mixed #disabilities , with detailed assessments performed before departure, and one-on-one assistance can be provided wherever you need it.
I am currently dreaming of wearing this dress again 🎀
This is one of my favourite dresses from last summer .
You all know I love neutrals but I did start wearing pink last year. Im so happy this shade has been hitting stores recently! Going to introduce a little more of it into my wardrobe.
If there is one trip I would do again, it is this 4 day canoe and camping trip along the Orange River in Namibia
I love a luxury 5* star hotel, don't get me wrong (I've gotten a bit spoilt haha) but there is nothing like being in nature, fresh air, no signal, no music, no obligations!
You start with an overnight at the campsite just over the Namibian border and then the next day you set out in your own canoe. The best part about this trip is crew row with you and make all your meals, so your only responsibility is keeping your beers in your cooler box safe and setting up your tent at each spot and then just relaxing.
It was a trip of a lifetime and I can highly recommend it. Let me know if you want to know the company we went with. Their crew was so friendly and accommodating, the food was amazing and their campsite was basically 5* luxury (in a camp sense 😉) #gsquadtravel
Do you find this time of the year really stressful or do you love December as the year draws to a close? ⠀
Personally I enjoy reflecting back on the year during this time of the year. I'm not one to set new year's goals as I believe in setting small goals throughout the year, weekly or monthly but it's so important to decide what you want to accomplish for the following year and do so now already, why wait for January the 1st? ⠀
While sitting here I am not reflecting on 2020 goals, I'm thinking that my instagram restaurant dreams have all come true haha. I couldn't stop looking around the entire time we dined here as this restaurant was AMAZING! It's a instagrammers dream 😍 ⠀
Save this post to go check this place out if you are lucky enough to visit Dubai. It's located in the City Walk by Meraas mall which is a really nice mall and has great views of the Burj Khalifa too #gsquadtravel
Always have fun when traveling! Yes, you may experience times that you are completely out of your comfort zone or maybe you get lost or things didn’t go exactly as planned. But stop, breathe and just go with it! Travel is about making memories, being silly and taking all those corny tourist photos! 😉

I have some rather big news.
We will be shutting Hopton House B&B for good at the end of September this year. I’ve been running it for over 15 years now and it’s time for me to have a change.
I’ve never enjoyed cleaning and I’m not particularly good at early mornings..... 😂but I have loved meeting so many lovely people.
I want to say a huge thank you to those of you that have visited and supported me over the years. I really couldn’t have done it without you all.
I’m too young to retire 😂 but will be focusing more on my training and online stuff.
I’ll be recommending a few of my favourite local B&Bs for those of you that love Shropshire as much as we do.
I’ve already told a few of my most regular guests. Over 40 couples visited us more than once last year alone, and many of them have been visiting us since we opened. I’ve never become complacent about this. I know there are so many other options available to people. And the saddest part about this move is that I will truly miss my regulars.
The bookings are coming in fast, so if you fancy a last visit now is your last chance.
P.S. if you want to book a last visit, I’d be really grateful if you could do so online. It’s up to date and secure. Link in my profile
