The hotel has lots of facilities and is very much kids friendly. We will for sure go back for our family trip. The room was stunning with a beautiful view of the ocean what more you can ask for?, right. The location of the hotel is great everyone can find something to do, either you are adventure person or you just want to chill by the pool. We enjoyed the beautiful seaside walks, walking by harbor, and enjoying as well shopping. The hotel has great Spa facilities, which we have visited on daily basis. We loved the Jacuzzi, the sauna and not to mention our treatments in the beautiful salon.

We are very grateful to go for a little Escape. We have decided to go to "Malta" in the beautiful city Mallieha. This was a lovely surprise from my love.
Little about Mallieha, it's a small town in the Northern Region of Malta. It has beautiful sandy beaches, you can do lots of water sports and lovely churches.
We stayed in the 4 star hotel Maritim Antonine Hotel & Spa which is located 1 km from the beach. Walking distance for us with slow walking and taking pictures it took us 15 minutes. Hotel also provided complimentary shuffle bus, but we preferred to walk. The hotel was great, had great facilities, lovely staff and very good customer service.
We had enjoyed our short stay, there is lots to do while staying in Malta but we needed to rest as much as possible and our aim was to be on the beach and by the pool at the hotel most of the time. But we are for sure coming back again with the kids, as is so much to see and to do while staying in Malta.
To celebrate our coming up anniversary we set of to Spain - Madrid for a few days.
It was my first time in Spain and our first time in Madrid.
We have stayed in a Ayre Gran Hotel Colón a 4-minute walk from the Sainz de Baranda metro station. This hotel is an impressive complex consisting of two buildings, delightful gardens, an art gallery, restaurants, gym and private parking.
The weather was around 14C max. but enough to chill. We have seen a lot while in Madrid, more than we planned. We have used metro, bus as public transport but we did lots of walking too.
Madrid has lots to offer, from a great day time entertainment to a night out..
We have visited few tourists places. One of them where we spend lots of time was The Plaza Mayor, which is Madrid's the main square and is located right in the centre of the city just a few minutes walk from the Puerta del Sol “Gate of the Sun,” is a crossroads where thousands gather each New Year’s Eve to welcome in the new year. It's a spot where visitors can stroll and admire the architectural wonders..
We also visited the The Gran Vía known as "Broadway of Madrid", because it's the street that never sleeps.
We are a huge fun of exploring food and we had to visit Mercado de San Miguel is walking distance of the Plaza Mayor. Is a popular shopping destination for local foods and delicacies from salted fish and oysters to fresh pasta and cakes.
We walked a lot while in Madrid and one of our spot for taking lots of pictures was Plaza de Cibeles. One of the most beautiful plazas in Madrid the Plaza de Cibeles is surrounded by several buildings constructed in the Neo-Classical style.
Our hotel was very close to the Retiro Park, the park has lots of gardens, fountains.
My love loves soccer I do too, but not as much as my love. Therefore one of our visits had to be Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. We had a such a great time here.
We love to just wonder around the city and explore the streets, try lots of food.
We decided to visit as well and explore the night life in Madrid and went to Kapital, which is one of the most well known and popular clubs in Madrid. It's seven floor of a musical madness offer something for everyone. It has 3 bars, great lights, we did enjoy it but I must say that it is place mainly for teenagers rather than our age group, but we still had lots of fun.
As you probably all can guess that we had visited few shops as well. Madrid did not disappoint me at all and got some pieces for spring, which I can't wait to style them.
We have enjoyed Madrid and we will for sure visit again.
In September we had a little escape, and went to explore Greece. It was a lovely experience, we stayed in Asterion Hotel in Chania front of the beech and it was stunning. The people were very welcoming, the food was delicious we enjoyed fresh salad and seafood.
The weather was not too hot not cold it was perfect for September. It is important to find a time for your partner. The work, the kids takes most of our time but is important to chill and just appreciate what you have. We really enjoyed Greece and we will for sure plan to go there again.
My love took me to his country Portugal and I had the opportunity to explore a stunning Lisbon.
We were there for a short break, we visited few places which are the number one tourist attractions.
We stayed in the 5 star hotel Don Pedro and we had the most amazing view of the lovely Lisbon. This country is so beautiful and so many places which tourist can visit. This is place for everyone either you are traveling as Business person, traveling alone, romantic get away or family. We look forward to come back.
Love you Lisbon and thank you to my love who showed me Lisbon in such a short stay. I had the opportunity to meet his relatives and his coach and it means a lot to me. There is no better feeling when you are somewhere and they make you feel so welcome. I am blessed to have what I have and hopefully everyone can be happy. Life is too short and we should enjoy every minute.
