The True Blue Bay – Grenada

If ever a hotel was conceived for a truly 21st century lifestyle this is the one!

It is the antidote for all the big corporate hotels.

The True Blue Bay in Grenada leads the new wave of hotels that concentrate on their visitors and their requirements.

Over 40% of its energy supplies are renewable and no plastic drinking glasses or plastic straws are allowed.

Their green credentials are impressive!

The list of activities available is wonderful:

2 free yoga sessions

Return transfers from the airport

Transfers into town

Spa treatments

Diving and sailing lessons

Guided tours around the Island by a local guide, and too many more to mention!

For me there is a chocolate making and rum tasting!

For him (and me) there is a microbrewery on site!

We are The True Blue Bays choice for their UK representation.

A winning combination: Plane Travel (ATOL 5279) and The True Blue Bay.

For True Adventurers:

The Golden Journey to Samarkand

There are precious few places at these times that are truly unexplored.

From Alaska in the North to Patagonia in the south, the Americas hold few undiscovered destinations.

From Northern Norway to the Cape of Good Hope, only the lawless African countries are excluded from our quest to discover all that is wonderful and diverse about our amazing world.

Japan to Australasia is covered; The Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Tuamotu Archipelago – all open to explorers.

But how about the new countries? The “stans”: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan – all undiscovered.

The one and only Joanna Lumley has so thrilled and stunned us with her programme – Silk Road Travels – and captivated us with her eloquent descriptions, that we all must feel an overwhelming desire to follow in her footsteps.

Who among us has not felt the need to throw off the shackles of daily life, pack a bag, and jump over “The Back Fence”?

 

“THE GOLDEN JOURNEY TO SAMARKAND” – BY JAMES ELROY FLETCHER

“We travel not for trafficking alone,
By hotter winds our fiery hearts are fanned.
For lust of knowing what should not be known,
We take the Golden Road to Samarkand.”

Margaret River Trip

Trips to Western Australia | Monkey Mia | Ningaloo Reef | Exceptional add-ons

Flights with Emirates, Hotels as stated, and car hire

Day 1

Flight to Perth with Emirates.

Why not stop over in Dubai for a couple of nights and avail yourselves of all the fun of Dubai?

Snow dome skiing in that heat?  Well why not??

Day 2 – 5

Arrive in Perth for a 4 night stay in the Mercure.

After a refreshing night’s sleep it is time to get out and about.

Essential trips include the Swan River dinner cruise; Pinnacles Desert Tour; a swim with wild dolphins.

Treat yourself to a ferry to Rottnest Island to visit the mini kangaroo known as the Quokka. They are cuteness personified!

Day 6

Pick up a car (preferably an open topped one).

Call in at Freemantle (or Freeo as the locals call it) to visit the Old Customs House.

Try to imagine what those first settlers must have felt with the blazing heat, arid desert, and strange creatures. Some bounced, some looked like a cross between duck and otter! Some either bit or stung you!

There were many deaths in the first few settlers. A sobering thought for those who rather view Australia as Surrey with the heat turned up!

Drive slowly down the Busselton Highway which threads its way along the coast. Stop in Bunbury for lunch over-looking the most perfect blue sea. Take a moment to dabble your toes in the warmest sea that you have ever felt.

Meander further to stop in Busselton for a leisurely supper and fall asleep listening to the sound of the sea gently lapping the shore.

Hotel Abbey Beach Resort

Day 7 – 10

Spend the next 4 nights in the food and wine centre of Western Australia; Margaret River.

Perth and it’s southern towns are the most remote cities on the planet. All the food is grown locally – flying it in is prohibitively expensive – therefore it has a rich and diverse wine and food culture. The wineries are beyond compare.

The restaurants are world class. Most of the chefs and sommeliers are locally trained. There are regular gourmet events in 5* hotels like The Basildene Manor.

There is much else to do: world class caves, kite surfing, and plenty of nautical pleasures.

2 nights The Noble Grape Inn & 1 night Basildene Manor

Day 11 – 12

Drive down the coast passing Cape Leewin.

This is where the warm Pacific Ocean meets the cooler Great Australian Bite. This can be a stormy wild place where many old ships came to grief on the rocks. There is now a lighthouse there. Definitely worth a detour for the dramatic coastline!

On then the Albany for our last 3 days.

This city is now known for it’s beauty and its preservation of its heritage.

In the early 20th century it was an important place for its supposed health giving air. If you were diagnosed with any chest problems then a dose of health giving properties was the order of the day.

Day 13 – 14

Surprisingly, for a time, it was the first port of call for ships transferring prisoners from England. So the Old Court House is a prominent tourist attraction.  Although from my eyes it looks a pretty nice place for a penal colony!

Time now to wend our way back to Perth for our flight home, taking the Albany Highway inland.

Hotel Beach House Bayside

This trip includes: 2 Free Bottles of Western Australia Wine + Free Guide Book to Western Australia

Experience French Polynesia

Tahiti is the largest island in French Polynesia, a group of four archipelagos made up of roughly 117 islands. 

In all, the area is roughly the size of Western Europe. They are the sparkling jewels in the exotic cruising grounds of your Tahitian sailing vacation.

Because these islands are downwind from Tahiti, they’re known as the Leewards. Their mountains rise from the sea atop the remnants of ancient volcanoes. Barrier reefs provide a habitat for sea turtles, sharks, dolphins, porpoises, colourful unspoiled coral, and countless species of fish, all of which make the Tahitian Leeward Islands arguably one of the world’s best areas for snorkelling and scuba diving.

Throughout the islands, you’ll find top resorts and every imaginable water sport from wind surfing to diving. In addition, there are island tours, archaeological and historical, and fine dining consisting of vegetables, fresh fish, and exotic fruits which are prepared with a Polynesian influence and a touch of French cuisine.

“All in all it was a very good experience for us and we enjoyed our vacation very much. So we would like to say thank you for this fantastic Holiday!”
-Ulli and Uschi (Tahiti)
