Gran Canaria look book

Carrying on with my October holiday posts, our Gran Canaria look book. After a long day sunbathing both me and Ellie love getting ready for the night.

Puerto Rico Gran Canaria holiday diary

October half term saw me and Ellie jetting off on another adventure. (I know, I know terrible blogger only just writing about it now!) Ellie is in year 10 now at school and working hard so needs time out to relax now and again. I had been quite poorly over the summer with thyroid disease, the symptoms of that and the other health problems it brings. So I was in desperate need of getting away from everything and doing nothing in the sunshine. This adventure took us to the Canary Islands again for some winter sunshine.

This month I was invited to my first ever travel event, the Blog at the Beach January 2018. are the UK’s leading holiday comparison site with 20 million visitors a year. Their website is a mine of information and inspiration. From the website you can compare prices and hotels in specific areas or even choose the date you want to go on holiday and compare holidays around the world. You can find city breaks, beach holidays, skiing trips or even UK mini breaks.

The Blog at the Beach January 2018 is a chance to meet other travel bloggers, talk to themselves and listen to some fabulous guest speakers.



Going on holiday blog plans

Today I am jetting off on holiday to Gran Canaria with Ellie for a week of sunshine and relaxation. We are staying quite off grid in a small hotel with no wifi *gasps*. I’m planning lots of exploring, lots of laying on a sun lounger and making a huge dint in my Kindle to-read list.
