Hop On Hop Off, Edinburgh

As we were in Edinburgh for 3 full days, we’d planned the trip quite carefully to try to maximise our visit. As mentioned in previous posts, we’d done Inchcolm Island and South Queensferry and a drinks night out on the Saturday. For Sunday and Monday however, we’d decided we wanted to properly see the sights of Edinburgh. On my brother-in-law’s suggestion (he’d been to Edinburgh the weekend before with his girlfriend), we decided to get a Hop On Hop Off ticket.

Real St Lucia Tours, St Lucia

When we were looking for things to see and do in St Lucia, I came across a Real St Lucia Tours on the internet. A quick enquiry was answered very quickly and efficiently with a lot of information like the pricing, what it entailed and what we could choose to see. We really liked the fact that you could have a private tour! I quickly booked us in for the tour 8 months before we were due to go!

Please bear in mind that some of their packages/tours may have changed since we went in May 2015.

St Lucia Sea Trek Adventure @ Pigeon Island, St Lucia

If you wanted a taster of what diving could be like I’m willing to bet that Sea Trek is the answer to that. We tried it as we’d both snorkelled before but have never dived before. Again we did this as part of our honeymoon in May 2015.

Holme Pierrepont Hall, Nottingham

We first discovered this hidden gem of Nottingham by attending a wedding fair there in Nov 2013! It was the very first venue we’d visited but we fell in love with it immediately.

It is an early Tudor manor house and a Grade 1 listed building in Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham and is the family home of the Brackenbury family.
