    9FB0182F-E06C-43E6-93ED-1EC26FA77808.jpeg Hi

    In the same vein as the ‘Post pictures of your recent purchases’ I thought it would be nice to create a similar thread for random pictures of recent holidays or travels.

    I’ll start with my walk this morning along the 8.6km beach in Porto Santo, Madeira at approximately 28-30’c. Easily one of my favourite beaches I’ve ever been too, including those in the Indian Ocean

    (No blocks of Lurpak are needed for comparison though as in the other thread)

    Ensure you add a location please, to inspire others.

    Thanks

    privatepool.jpg

    Patio with "private pool" and views to the med from hotel room in Crete.

    Normally just book the basic room type as the room is used for little more than the bed, shower and wardrobe but with your own pool, fantastic views and a near by supermarket selling beer/prosecco and large empty fridge in the room to keep it cold we actually spent most of our R&R time in the room/its patio.

    Its the Blue Palace Resort & Spa, Elounda, Crete

    The restaurants weren't great (for their price) but there are a couple of great little sea front places a few minutes walk along the coast.

    Get some stunning sunsets from way up high on Tenerife (Teide in the background). Away from all the hustle and bustle down below on the beach..

    yep, living in bins too...never really seen identical cats before...! there's a black cat further down (7568) which is one of the most sweetest cats I have ever met...I gave it half of my decent chicken kebab and it lay down for a nap...it's belly was really full and i stroked it - and it never finched a tiny bit..!

    Boston. Great city blending old and new. Take a trip to Harvard University or to Maine for lobster.

    Yeah was part of a twin centre trip with NYC. We had a great time in NYC but Boston just has something about it which is making us want to go back.

    Never been. Suspect we won't be visiting for safety fears but I do like a good snorkel!

    This photo doesn't quite show it at its finest but had a day in Lisbon recently on a cruise and will definitely be back for a longer stay. Beautiful city.

    2017-11-25_03-53-30.jpg Milford Sound. Breathtakingly beautiful. For a sense of scale Mitre Peak is 1100 ft higher than Ben Nevis. we did a road trip before getting married near Mt Taranaki. It was one of those holidays where everything worked out just fine, even leaving Kiakoura a few days before the massive quake in 2016.
