Riad Dar M'chicha, Marrakesh

Our children's school recently opted to extend the school day, giving them two weeks off at Halloween instead of the usual one week. This second week proved extremely good value to go away on, for both flights and hotels and so we chose to head for a few sun drenched Winter days in Marrakesh.

48 hours in Iceland - Where to visit

Iceland is without a doubt my favourite country. It has a raw beauty to it, and such welcoming people. If I were ever to leave the UK and move to a different country, it would be Iceland. I honeymooned there one Summer and re-visited one Winter and it really is a country where any time of the year is going to offer you breath-taking views.

Takeoffs and Landings

Working remotely as I do, is something that I love. I really dig the flexibility and how well we work as a team even though the team is spilt between different countries. It's awesome to get the chance to actually physically be with the folk you work with though, especially when you are all part of a team that are passionate about the product you are all working on.

Singapore Botanic Gardens

Not only is Singapore Botanic Garden the oldest garden in Singapore but it's also the first and only tropical botanic garden on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List. It's a place of true beauty. Open from 5am to midnight daily it's free to visit, so good to have this vast green space open to everyone to enjoy.

Skógafoss waterfall, Iceland

The colours were just so vibrant, the sun streamed out from behind grey clouds (if you want to see a comparision we drive 5 minutes to the Sólheimasandur Plane Crash site  afterwards and the light completely changed back to grey). The steps you can climb to the top of the waterfall give you outstanding views, both looking down on the waterfall and also across to the two glaciers in the surrounding area.

Reynisdrangar and the Black Sand Beach at Vik, Iceland

The stacks you can see rising out of the sea are basalt stacks called Reynisdrangar. The beach itself is beautiful but take caution, it can get very stormy and you can find the beach can disappear with just one big wave (as we did when a group of us had to run into a tiny cave to escape one wave ourselves).
