 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.

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

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
