Prague: Day 4

Well, it can hardly be called a journal entry for a day in another city (or another country). The sum part of my entry for Prague: Day 4 is that we woke up early, had breakfast and then took public transport to the airport. A somewhat tiresome journey, a small mither at the airport, and a quiet, bor...

Prague: Day 3

Thankfully, we weren’t woken up by the maid today. We naturally awoke and at a decent time too; the way it should always be. (Brandon would be so proud) There was quite a bit on today. I wouldn’t say we overpacked it or that we were rushing around as typical tourists. We took it slow. We filled up f...

Prague: Day 2

We set an alarm for 9AM. Not too early. Not too late. When we went to bed, I told Nay we probably wouldn’t need it, but just in case: 9 hours, 30 minutes sleep. Apparently, we did need it. The alarm went off. Shortly after the maids came into our room - we’d forgotten to put up the Do Not Disturb. E...

Prague: Day 1

After the great surprise of a trip to Prague for my birthday. I thought it only appropriate to carry on the holiday diary, as I did with Majorca and Krakow. Our flight was at a gruesome 6AM. We always work back from there to figure out leaving times. We’re roughly 45 minutes from Manchester airport,...

Another Lazy Day

Days like today are often needed. More so than we think. Maybe more so than we like to admit. I spent the day in pyjamas - okay, boxers and a tshirt, it's a guys equivalent okay? We could be out and about enjoying the local scenery, but why? We've seen it before. It's pouring down with rain. It was ...

12th October 2019

It’s just gone midday. We had a lie in - the night before we stayed up extremely late to finish binge watching a series (@brandonwilson will be extremely disappointed!) I am writing this now to plan my day and make sure I continue my writing. Maybe these types entries are lower value, but they are g...

Surprise

Surprise! I'm at a caravan park with Nay right now. I had planned to go on three vacations to other countries this year. I don't think that is going to happen now - as many of you know, we bought a house this year! This put a bit of a restriction on the purse strings. I was told (months ago) to book...

Krakow: Day 3

I’m writing this after being home for several hours, quite refreshed (alcohol) and relaxed on my chair. We didn’t really have any time to enjoy the city today. Our flight back was quite early. We just woke up, backed, had breakfast and headed to the nearby park. Our bus into the airport wasa 45 minu...

Krakow: Day 2

We had a nice lie in, we set an alarm in case we overslept but we didn’t need it. We had breakfast provided by the hotel we’re staying at - and we will have the same tomorrow before we leave too. Today was Wawel Castle day! Or morning, at least... After another trip to the main square, we headed to ...

Krakow: Day 1

We set an alarm for 6am. Urgh, I hate doing that, but sometimes it has to be done. It wasn’t too painful, we have almost the usual amount of sleep. We awoke, dressed and packed out car - not with much, we had one carry bag and a standard size backpack. After arriving at the airport, parking and gett...

Krakow

Tomorrow morning, we leave for a small, chill out break to Krakow, Poland. Due to the nature of being away, I'll likely do posts about my day for the duration like I did with Majorca back when I started 200 words a day! I'm back on Friday, so there will likely be three posts. At work, I have a lovel...

Majorca, Day 3 (Finale)

It's our last day. Technically, we'll be in Majorca until 10.30 tomorrow, but our transfer to the airport leaves at 6.55 tomorrow. Nay planned a couple of massages for late morning. So I took the opportunity to lounge in the sun and attempt to read. The weather was supposed to be sunny until 10.30 a...

Majorca 2019, Day 2

Seriously though... is it Majorca (with a J) or Mallorca (with an L, or even 2 LL)? I've seen both... and it's pronounced Mah-yor-ka, with a Y. Sigh, anyway... Our first day here was great. Lovely time in the sun, great food and alcohol. I slept for 11 hours last night. Today, we stayed extremely la...

Majorca 2019

I'm a bit sipsy right now. Sipsy is what the missus and I call tipsy when we're too drunk to say it. We're on holiday. We arrived in Majorca at midday today after leaving the house at 2AM and travelling for 10 hours door to door. We've eaten a lot. I say we because I don't want myself to sound too b...
