My Weekend Away at Gunwarf Quays

My Weekend Away at Gunwarf Quays

  Last weekend myself and my husband packed our bags and set off for a very much needed weekend away, just the two of us. We started our journey on Friday morning leaving our home and heading for the local main line station (we decided not to drive), we then travelled to Portsmouth Harbour, travelling first class.  I will say at this point that my idea of first class is totally different to the train company’s version of first class.

Paris

Paris

Last Tuesday my husband turned to me and asked if I fancied going to Paris the next day for a couple of nights.  Well, I was not going to say no and ran off to tell our daughter we were off to Paris the next morning, before hurrying around sorting everything out to take.

Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic
