The waterways offer everything […]

How was your Valentines Day?

I spent mine up in the air for a 9 hour flight to Miami with Mr C.  So I decided that as it was 14th February, indulgence was the order of the day, so it was chocolates, Champagne and an on-board film fest of rom-com romantic fluffiness till I tired myself of that and decided […]

Moscow – what have we been doing?

On Thursday, Olga and I braved the appalling cold, rainy weather to have a private viewing of a Fokker 100 aircraft based at Vnukovo 3, Moscows Private Jet Airport. With a VIP interior configuration it’s great for taking 16 in VIP seating, with an additional 12 passengers seated in club class seating at the rear […]

Whilst we were in Fort Lauderdale it was Halloween, and I don’t know about you, but I didn’t realise what a big deal Halloween is in America, it’s just as big a celebration as Thanksgiving!  But the funny thing is, that where we Brits dress up in outfits of all things scary, in the US […]

Thats the question you have to ask yourself?  It’s no wonder this young man is enjoying himself so much and has embraced the lifestyle in Fort Lauderdale whole heartedly. I have just been invited to see his apartment which is in a fairly futuristic block just a minute or two’s leisurely stroll from our offices […]

Of all the bars in all the Towns….

Found a great piano bar called Casablanca Cafe, just a short walk from the W Hotel on the corner of Beach Boulevard and Alhambra Street.  I loved the ambience of this buzzy little place, soft lighting, great menu and the food was beautifully presented and delicious, but the best thing was the music, they were […]
