Who We Are and

What We Do

 
"Whatever You Want To Do, Do It Now - There Are Only So Many Tomorrows." (Michael Landon)

Who Are We?

Our trio of nomads is Sharon, Steve and travelholic golden retriever Bracken, who has his own blog. 

In the ‘one life, live it’ ethos, our website reflects our passion to share our-wide ranging experiences and adventures - whether by land, sea or air.

It also aims to inspire our friends, friends, readers and followers to make time to pursue their dreams.    

Setting out on our latest adventures in November 2019, our rollercoaster journey has taken us through an unprecedented period.

We hope you’ll sign up and follow our vibrant adventures.

Isolation and Relaxation in Challenging Climes: Stonefield Castle

Our travel reviews often transport us to hospitality havens of tranquillity where guests can recharge and relax in safe surroundings. They include a visit to Stonefield Castle where it’s not unusual to see otters meandering up the driveway, dolphins and seals splashing by the loch and deers roaming the woodland.

Stonefield Castle is a stunning Scottish baronial manor house set in 60 acres of woodland gardens which overlooks Loch Fyne. Switching off is guaranteed as the castle’s top team do everything possible to ensure guests relax and recharge their batteries.

We’re often invited to review hotels and resorts during the course of our colourful and adventure-packed travels and are invariably bowled over by the venues’ passion and commitment to customer service.

On Halloween, we wanted to share an insight into our unforgettable experience at the haunted Tulloch Castle which Bespoke Hotels Group commissioned us to review for the Yorkshire Times and the Lancashire Times.

Ibiza is the last place I’d expect to reconnect and recharge in an oasis of tranquillity where even the birds are attuned to discerning visitors seeking to escape the crowds.

How wrong could I be?
