Summer Is Coming


The sun is shining, which must mean one thing, summer is coming, and this also means holidays.  So I have been enjoying a nice morning coffee sat outside looking at holidays online.

We have been talking for a while about holidays and where we would like to go and two places keep coming up in conversation Cape Verde, for those of you that remember it was this time last year we travelled there to celebrate my birthday, you can read more here, somewhere else that keeps being mentioned is Turkey, we have been on a day trip and always talked about going back.

So why are these two places at the top of our holiday list for this year?

Cape Verde

As you will have seen we visited here last year and had one of the most amazing holiday. We would love to travel back.  Before we visited last year, I will admit I had not heard of it before.  Cape Verde is a 5 hour flight, and they are on the same time zone, so no jet lag.  We stayed on Sal, which from the research we did, is the better Island.

The resort we stayed in was lovely, very clean, food was amazing, and everyone very friendly. It is safe to venture out on your own as well. We personally think that  Cape Verde is going to become the next Tenerife and before it starts to become too commercialised we want to go back.


We have been wanting to go on holiday in Turkey for years. We went on a day trip when C was not even 2, when were on holiday in Kos.  We only had a short time there but from what we had seen, plus some of the most amazing kebabs we have ever tried, to the friendliness of the locals, the shopping and from hearing such amazing tales from friends and family who have been to Turkey on holiday, it has always been high up on our list of holidays, as there is so much to see and do and obviously there is the turkish delight to sample.

We have not been on a proper holiday for a long time now and we could all do with getting away and having some fun and relaxation, but we can not book in advance, so if like me you want to book holidays last minute, you can find some great deals online.

Where would you like to travel to next?
