Pre-Holiday Checklist: Have You Done It All?

Guest Post by Catherine M.

Lists…don’t you just love them? Well, some people don’t, but they can be a great way to ensure that you don’t miss anything, which can be particularly handy when it comes to last minute holidays (http://www.directholidays.co.uk/holidays/last-minute/) and family breaks, when there’s much more to get your head around. Organising a pre-holiday checklist can ensure that you don’t forget anything prior to your flight, meaning that you can spend your time beginning the relaxation process, rather than panicking about things you could have missed.

Itinerary & Expenses for Cebu Trip

Swimming with the whale sharks and seeing the majestic waterfalls of south Cebu was an enjoyable experience. My solo trip for 3 days and 2 nights was too short a stay to fully enjoy south Cebu. I'm aching to go back to explore not just the south but also the entire province of Cebu.

Encounter with Oslob Whale Sharks

After reading about swimming with whale sharks from various blogs online, I decided to jump in and try it myself. I left the guest house as early as I could to be one of the first to swim with the Oslob whale sharks. I got up at 6AM to catch the first boat that sails out to the whale shark watching area. There was a short discussion of what you can do and not do during the whale shark interaction.




Places to Visit from Playa de las Americas

Guest Post by Catherine M.

If you're heading for a holiday in Playa de las Americas this year, why stay rooted to the resort when you could get out and about to discover the rest of this fantastic island? There's so much to see and do in Tenerife, it's well worth taking the time to explore this much-loved Canary Island. Here are a few ideas on where to go and what to see when you're staying in Playa de las Americas...

Siam Park
One of the most popular attractions in this part of the island is the splash-tastic Siam Park. Based just a few kilometres away, Siam Park is one of the biggest water parks in Europe that's packed with thrilling rides and death-defying flumes. It's home to everything from a floating market and its very own beach to a bunch of mischievous sea lions, so there's entertainment to be had for the whole family.
