The Ultimate Packing List For A Beach Holiday

We’ve all been there. You’ve packed and re-packed the same bag multiple times to make sure everything is there. And yet somehow, as soon as you step on that plane you realise you’ve forgotten something. Whether you’re the type to leave packing until the last minute or you like to be prepared weeks before you set off, it’s easy for certain items to slip your mind. Packing efficiently and thoroughly isn’t always as simple as it may seem, particularly [...]

Summer 2018 Holiday Playlist

Rachael said Yes to New adventures, Corsica with Mark Warners Holidays

I have just returned from a fantastic trip to Corsica with Mark Warner holidays, staying in the North of Corsica in the beautiful resort of San Lacianu. Travelling on Mark Warner's very own British Airways charter from London Heathrow and then a very short transfer to the San Lucianu resort in Corsica.  The resort itself is one of the smaller Mark Warner resorts and the Superior Rooms have recently been refurbished. I would highly recommend upgrading to one of these; [...]

Il Borro, Tuscany

By Gin Ford I travelled by train to Gatwick and stayed overnight at the Premier Inn North Terminal.  Very good with excellent facilities, having never stayed at this hotel before I would recommend it. Il Borro is a medieval village, made up of beautiful individual houses, some small shops, 2 restaurants,  a spa,  riding stables and church.  It is very quiet and set in  vineyards and acres of lush green hills and pastures.  The first recorded production of Chianti wine [...]

We checked in for our British Airways flight and were fortunate to be travelling on the A380 on the top floor in business class, obviously thrilled. The experience was very good I would recommend this aircraft [...]
