I’ve not long returned from my very first trip to Dubai and I absolutely loved it! Of course, I was expecting to enjoy it and have a great holiday with Thomas, but I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did.

During our trip to Italy we knew definitely wanted to visit Portofino, the next town along the coastline from where we were staying in Santa Margherita. We’d also heard that the small town just beyond Portofino was also beautiful, so we decided to visit both in one day.

‘Enchanting‘, ‘wonderful‘, ‘unique‘ – these are just some of the many words I’d heard used to describe the Cinque Terre before my visit there.
