Why Do We Love Living in Mallorca? 

No Charge, No Cameras, No Jobsworths, No Hassle!!    People often ask us why we moved to Spain. It is a long story. There are lots of things that we love about Spain but as frequent travellers one of the things we love best is the fact that we can drive right up to departures at Palma Airport, without having to pay. Every airport we have been to in the UK, charges you money simply to drop someone off. Crazy. However, the biggest advantage is being able to wait outside the arrivals area without being moved…Read more

Musical Instrument Insurance 

From time to time, we are asked if we can recommend a reliable insurance company for musical instruments. For several years, we have been using Lark Insurance, as they are geared to the needs of musicians. They were a great help when Noel's Avalon Americana was damaged back in 2014.

Seafood, meats and vegetables combined in a variety of different ways. One of Noel's favourite Tapas is oxtail, mashed potato and onion relish on a small slice of bread. Usually…

How to get a good seat on British Airways long-haul flights 

Travel is a major part of all our lives and in lots of ways can be stressful and uncomfortable. Because we travel a lot with our work, we have learned some useful tips to make things easier and thought this one would be good to share with you all. We try and fly British Airways when we do long-haul, because they are one of the best airlines and we appreciate the service they offer. However, if like us, you are flying on a budget (i.e. in Coach/Economy Class), how can you be certain of getting the seats with…Read more

Everything is bigger in America 

People often speak about the huge portions of food that are served in restaurants throughout the USA. Yesterday, we found further proof that everything is bigger in America, when we purchased this extra sized bottle of wine. Tonight is Friday and with all the family together, I guess we will make short work of this. Enjoy your weekend!
