Grisnoir Guest House, Guernsey – Review

Grisnoir Guest House

On our way back from France we decided to make a stop to explore the island of Guernsey and booked to stay overnight in the Grisnoir Guest House. We arrived very late as our Ferry had been cancelled due to bad weather and we had to take the Condor Clipper and although it was relatively easy to find, the doors were locked when we got there. I attempted to phone them with no answer and was starting to get worried when I spotted a sign saying check-in was at the Abbey Court Hotel 60 yards down the road. I feel… Continue Reading “Grisnoir Guest House, Guernsey – Review”

Things you should know when Driving in France

The thought of driving in France filled me with dread before we started our holiday and when our ferry was delayed and we ended up arriving in France in the dark I was even less confident.

How to Survive a Ferry journey with Kids

Condor Ferry

I hadn’t been on a ferry since I was at school until last weekend and I was quite blase about it, after all I had never been unwell aboard a boat. When we arrived in Poole harbour to board, what is affectionately known locally as the vomit comet, I started to worry. The winds were howling and the rain was so strong it managed to blow up the poor check-in assistants computer so she had to hand write our tickets manually. Once we finally boarded the ferry we locked up the car and headed upstairs to get seated. Travelling with Condor… Continue Reading “How to Survive a Ferry journey with Kids”

Staying at Eco-Gites of Lenault

Eco Gites Lenault

My husband is fascinated by World War II and can often be found watching documentaries or reading books on the subject and he has passed his fascination on to the teen, who is also studying it for his history GCSE. Hubby has been dropping hints abut visiting Normandy to see some of the famous sites from Operation Overlord for years and last year I surprised him with a holiday booked for February half term to make his wish come true. I have been speaking to Rosie from Eco-Gites of Lenault for over a year and when I realised her property was… Continue Reading “Staying at Eco-Gites of Lenault”

A visit to Lindos, Rhodes

Lindos

Back in September 2014 I was lucky enough to visit Rhodes and enjoy a day trip to the picturesque, ancient village of Lindos which has a spectacular Acropolis towering above the town. The Acropolis sits atop a natural citadel and offers spectacular views of the surrounding harbours and coastline, although the climb to the top is not for the faint hearted, or young children. Once one of Rhodes’ ancient and important cities, Lindos grew to prosperity under the Knights of St. John and much of medieval Lindos has survived for all to see which narrow paved streets and beautiful buildings around… Continue Reading “A visit to Lindos, Rhodes”

Capturing Holiday Memories

I have loved taking photo’s for as long as I can remember with my parents giving me my own camera at a very young age, although I think it is something they may have regretted as it used to cost them a fortune in developing them to find a few dozen pictures of my finger that was across the lens. Thankfully my photography skills have improved over the years and with the introduction of digital photography I can click away until my heart is content, or the memory card is full. I love taking my camera out and my best… Continue Reading “Capturing Holiday Memories”

Planning a visit to Normandy

La Mont St Michel

My husband and son are both fascinated by the World Wars and can often be found watching documentaries on the subject and with Kian studying the facts behind WW2 for his history GCSE I decided to surprise them with a visit to Normandy in France. We are sailing via Condor Ferries from Poole, making a stop in Guernsey before heading to St Malo and then have a two-hour drive to Eco Gites of Lenault which will be our base for exploring for a week. I last visited Normandy many years ago whilst still at school, so it is a long time… Continue Reading “Planning a visit to Normandy”
