Mexican Mishaps!

Mexican Mishaps… Much as travel bloggers would like you to believe that travelling is the best thing since sliced bread and that being at large about the world is perfection personified… well sometimes, it isn’t!

Our Las Vegas Timeshare Experience

Our Las Vegas Timeshare Experience

The trials and tribulations of a Las Vegas timeshare presentation… Should I attend a timeshare presentation, purely for the “gifts?” This is a question you might ask yourself, whilst in Las Vegas. The stakes are tempting. Free dinner and tickets for a show, gambling credits and even future accommodation. But is it worth it? We decided […]
