Weekend Shortcuts are complete guides to weekends away, written specifically to help you enjoy a perfect mini break without needing to do any additional research. 

This weekend shortcut tells you EVERYTHING you need to know to plan a perfect weekend in the town they call the Queen of the Dolomites; Cortina d’Ampezzo, in Northern Italy.

Despite being best known as a world class ski destination, I’ll show you a fun filled weekend of culture, art, shopping, history and good food.

And while snow bunnies visiting in Winter can add in skiing, snowshoeing or other mountain pursuits, non skiers (like me) or summer visitors will have plenty to keep them entertained.

The guide is particularly perfect if you’re part of a couple where one skis or snowboards and the other does not

This was all part of a baking competition for bloggers that I took part in –  and probably the closest I’ll ever get to the Great British Bake Off

While my first foreign holiday was to Greece (in typically British style) my first ever experience of a long haul destination was landing in Denpasar airport, Bali, more years ago than I care to admit – and I was overwhelmed, intoxicated and amazed in equal measure.

Now all those memories have come flooding back as my youngest brother has been bitten by the travel bug and found himself travelling to my favourite paradise island: Bali

Hong Kong

Traditional New Year may be well and truly over, but somehow it’s STILL January, leaving most of us with a serious case of the blues.
