travel trumps guide to majorca

Majorca Delights

Perched on the cold floor of Luton Airport, having fought for a small space among the hordes of summer revellers. I was contemplating what to expect from Majorca. We'd been to Menorca and loved it, the island was family friendly, easy to negotiate, with beautiful beaches and scenery, but Majorca, one of the most popular summer sun destinations in Europe? I was unsure. Thankfully, we were to be pleasantly surprised.

Flower Shows: A Great British Tradition


A Great British Tradition 

It's tougher than the NFL, more brutal than Ultimate Fighting, it's as raucous as Prime Ministers question time in the Houses of Parliment! Wait until the prizes have been handed out! Carnage. 

Every year it ends in a mass brawl, the losers pummeling the winner with left and right hooks Anthony Joshua would be proud of, in the vain hope of reclaiming the trophy they lost from the year before. Alright, I'm exaggerating a lot! 

I'm talking about a very British tradition. An event that is so British in its organisation, running and competitiveness, you wish there was a brawl at the end, just to mix it up a bit!

dining with disraeli


Days out: Hughenden Manor

"Get in the car!" I cried in despair. M & K were reluctant but we persisted with our mild threat. "You may have been there before, but I can't remember if I have or not. So hush, we're going." 

When you've got a free day and the kids are on holiday, choosing a place to visit which will tick the following list is never easy. 

* Close to home - (High Wycombe) ✓
* Cheap or free entrance - (Free as we are National Trust members) ✓
* Entertaining for both adults and kids - (Kids trails, beautiful scenery, cafe, garden) ✓

On this occasion, we managed it. Just!
