Venice – Beyond Every Expectation

So everyone talks about Venice. Everyone tells you how wonderful it is and how magical this city of water can be.

Over the course of…

The David

Yesterday we spent the day in Florence and the only thing on our agenda was to go to the Accademia Gallery and see Michaelangelo’s David statue.

A Quick Visit to the Land of the Royal

So I am off again on another adventure. Not quite as long or with as many people but the feeling of travelling and visiting new places is just as exciting. Yesterday Chris and I left Barbados on a 8-hour flight across the Atlantic. It was not as gruelling as I expected as the plane was quite empty…
