 In Dec 2012 we took a little break over to Mauritius.

We had five nights at the Sofitel L'Imperial Resort & Spa. 

It was a beautiful resort in Flic En Flac.

Breakfast was included and was stunning, we'd sit there for ages overlooking the pool and the gardens, sampling all the delicious breakfast items on offer!

The hotel was a little far from the small town, but there was a bus that you could catch into the town. It was nothing special, quite a rickety old thing, but it cost pennies and got you there safely! 

In the town there were a few restaurants, gift shops, where I bought a beautiful sarong and a Spa supermarket. I must admit we were pleased that there was a supermarket near by, so we could stock up on a few room treats!

One of the restaurants we went to was Hippocampe, just around the corner from the Spa. The restaurant had a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The food was very tasty and a good selection. I've also seen they have great reviews on TripAdvisor, so definitely one to visit!

Back at the hotel, the pool, beach and gardens are stunning. The rooms comfortable and clean, but unfortunately the T.V didn't have the best selection.

If we didn't go out for dinner we ate at the beach bar. Even though the restaurants in the hotel looked beautiful and the menus looked very tasty, they had the rule where, men had to wear long trousers of an evening. Some of the restaurants didn't have air conditioning, so in that heat and humidity it would of been so uncomfortable for my husband and lets face it, when you're on holiday you want to be relaxed and comfy.

All in all, we really liked the hotel and had a very enjoyable holiday in Mauritius.

Choosing a name for your blog

Read more on my  Disclaimer/Contact  page ~ Since writing the post ' Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginners'   I keep thinking about the part about choosing a name for your blog. If you've been here a while you'd know that this blog was originally called Suncream and Sparkles ~ which I have written about why I changed my blog name  here . Even though I do love my new blog name and I don't regret changing it I do wish I had taken more time and consideration in the very beginning when first starting my blog, or at least before buying the domain. You see blogging, even now for me who's been doing it for a fair few years, it really is a constant learning curve where you're always discovering new ways and new ideas to tweak and improve your blog. If you're debating on what name to choose for your

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

This isn't just a one off trip either. It is for, well, the foreseeable future, for as long as they'll have us anyway.  If you follow my social media,  Instagram  and  Twitter  you've probably picked up on the fact that we have relocated to Riyadh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The gist of the reason is that my husband was offered a fantastic position out there and to be honest after trying out semi-retirement and with the whole pandemic thing where we've (all) been extremely restricted we were itching for another adventure. We also never realised how much we missed the Middle East.  Previously we had five years out in the UAE, living in Abu D
