A Bicycle Winery Tour in Mendoza, Argentina

After a week in Buenos Aires we were craving countryside and the great outdoors! So off we set on an overnight bus to the wine region of Mendoza, nestled at the foot of the Andes.

Mendoza is known globally for its wine and without doubt one of our favourite days in Argentina was our self guided bike riding winery tour in nearby Maipu, and yes it's as fun as it sounds!

Paraty Photo Diary

Located only a few hours South from Rio is beautiful Paraty, a perfectly preserved Portugese colonial town set amid stunning emerald beaches, jungles and secluded islands. You will fall in love with Paraty as you wander the cobble stoned streets and marvel at the elegant white buildings with their bright coloured borders, windows and doors. The time we spent in Paraty was a perfect, relaxing retreat where we filled our days with beaches, island hopping, sliding down waterfalls, swimming, jungle adventures, strolling the elegant cobblestoned, colourful streets and drinking traditional Brazilian Caipirinha's at beach bars.

Five Star Island Paradise at Mezzatorre Resort & Spa, Ischia

It was at the end of our two week holiday in Italy that we spent several nights on Ischia Island. Lesser known then the famous Capri, we didn't really know what to expect, but from the second we caught a glimpse of the charming, stunning island of Ischia - we knew we'd chosen the perfect destination to spend our last few days relaxing in the late summer sunshine. Mezzatorre Resort & Spa was our hotel of choice on the island and I can say that without a doubt - it is by far one of my favourite hotels in the world. They truly deserve their membership as one of The Leading Hotels of the World, an association that brings together the most exclusive luxury hotels of the world.



North Wales Photo Diary

We visited beautiful Wales for my birthday earlier this year and absolutely fell in love with the country. We explored Snowdonia National Park, hiked Mt Snowdon, visited waterfalls & drove through the most breathtakingly stunning scenery. Wales blew us away with her beauty and we can't wait to return and explore more. Wales was without doubt one of the most beautiful countries we've ever visited and so we'll let the photos speak for themselves...
