The Travel Bug

I'm crazy about travelling, both in the Uk & abroad, and love discovering new places off the beaten track. On this page I'll share a few of the places that I've been to & hope that you'll enjoy discovering these places too! 

Aberporth, Wales

Nestled in the curve of Cardigan Bay, Aberporth is a small fishing village with one of the most beautiful beaches in Wales. Bottlenose dolphins are often spotted close to the shore & further out to sea basking sharks swim the waters. 

The best places to stay in the area are the holiday cottages, which are well-equipped, stylish and cosy. Rural Retreats have some beautiful places in the area on lettings with very reasonable weekly rates. 

It's a fabulous place to relax and unwind, with coastal walks, a few great restaurants and if you speak to the local fishermen you can even arrange to have fresh lobster delivered to your door. 

For shopping and bars, Cardigan is a twenty minute drive away & has lots of supermarkets, delicatessen's and souvenir shops, as well as some excellent eateries. 

Tranquil seas & superb views.

Akbuk, Turkey

Hidden away on the coast of the Aegean Sea, Akbuk town is an absolute gem. Unlike it's neighbour, Altinkum, Akbuk is peaceful, non-commercial & slow-paced. 

The pretty harbour affords views over blue waters, warm enough to swim in most months & is home to an array of local restaurants serving delicious food. There are few hotels in the town, but plenty of rental options & car hire is relatively cheap. 

I've been coming here for ten years & never tire of the amazing views. Guaranteed to have you returning home relaxed & rejuvinated, Akbuk is the place for total relaxation.
