Holiday Inn, Kiev

~ this post contains affiliate links ~

So, Marks just had a little business trip over to Kiev. I must admit when he first told me he had to go to the Ukraine I was a little worried, naturally. But all was fine. Kiev doesn't seem to have any problems at the moment, but I really don't want to get into that side of things, because I really do not have the knowledge about it all! I do though, want to share with you a little about Marks stay.

Mark was only there for the night and stay at the Holiday Inn in the city. Kiev has two airports. He flew into Boryspil International airport and out of Zhuliany International Airport. They say they're only 30 mins away, but allow for traffic as it's closer to an hours drive. 

Hubby definitely recommends the Holiday Inn, it was clean and comfortable, friendly staff and in a good location, right in the centre of the city. 

As Mark was there for work he didn't really venture out of the hotel. After breakfast (which was very tasty apparently!) the following day, he did nip outside for a quick look and said there's the most beautiful Catholic Church right around the corner. 

I must admit it looks stunning and I really want to visit Kiev now. Us Brits don't need a visa for the Ukraine, so it could be a good little trip to accompany hubby on the next time he goes! It's about a five hour flight from the UAE.

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

Looking for compounds in Riyadh

When Mark was first offered the job in Saudi, actually even before that when we were waiting in anticipation for the job to be offered we knew our first choice of accommodation in Riyadh would be on a western compound. We wanted our new place to be a home from home. Even though we have no problem whatsoever with following dress codes or anything and it actually doesn’t bother us in the slightest covering up. We sometimes, because of the world we’re from, being a westerner we wanted that little bit of ‘normality’ from our home life that we’re used too. We like to go on walks in the evening so it’s nice to be able to just pop on your shorts and vest and go for a walk without thinking and also being able to pop to the mini market for a pint of milk and a loaf of bread. Probably one of the biggest reasons for us to live on a compound is that we like to swim, sunbathe and be at the pool together. Which for us is a big part of our life. Another thing we like about compound living is the esca
