My trav-hell to the Maldives

Sometimes travel tests your patience. The ones that keep up with the More Passport Stamps Twitter account will know that I am currently in the Maldives (alright for some). However, often you have to go through hell to get to heaven. My original plan was to get a lift to Birmingham Airport, fly with Emirates to Maldives (via Dubai) then get a seaplane to Meedhupparu, my first Maldivian destination.

On my recent trip to Budapest with some friends, I had the opportunity to work with BeersOnWheels Budapest, a beer bike company in Budapest. I had never even been on a beer bike, so I was definitely excited to review Beers On Wheels Budapest!

What is in Benidorm besides excessive drinking?

My friend turned 40 recently and as such decided to have a lads holiday in Benidorm, Spain. It has a reputation for being a mini-Britain and some see it as the homeland of smut and cheap alcohol. It had never been on my list, but it’s my friends’ birthday and we go where he says. My job is to find out if there is more to Benidorm than being a warm version of Skegness.

Lady Hamilton Hotel Review, Stockholm

In January I had the opportunity to review the quirky Lady Hamilton Hotel in Stockholm.

Nestled in Gamla Stan, the location on paper looks unbeatable, within walking distance of everything Stockholm has to offer. The reality when you arrive is no different, and after a swift 15 minute walk from the Arlanda Express terminal (if you are flying in) you are in the beating heart of Stockholm on the doorstep of a very funky, folk style hotel.
