THERE’S NO question that a cruise holiday is one of the most relaxing breaks you can have although, like most foreign trips, it often takes several days to recover from the trauma of the journey required to reach your ship.

Luxury Resort Hotel Has The Total Package

ROBIN NOWACKI finds Southern Spain’s La Cala Resort Hotel ticks all the right boxes…

FOR ME to rate a resort hotel highly it must offer certain things – spacious tastefully decorated rooms with generous balconies offering fine peaceful views – a creative cuisine which stimulates, intrigues, excites, delights, and surprises – good friendly attentive service - and quality spa and sporting opportunities to help achieve total relaxation and to take care of one’s health.

A Brief Encounter with Morecambe...

On a recent trip to Morecambe, GUY WARNER and his wife (an avid Agatha Christie fan) enjoyed a stay at The Midland and a Brief Encounter in Carnforth…

WHEN we mentioned to friends that we were taking a short break in Morecambe, I must admit that there were a few raised eyebrows and quizzical looks begging the question – why?

There were two simple answers, my wife is a fan of Agatha Christie and had seen the Art Deco ‘The Midland’ in an episode of Poirot and had expressed a desire to visit it. Secondly, we have friends in Shropshire and Morecambe is roughly half way between there and Carrickfergus. Moreover, Derek’s wife, Marion, had been brought up in that part of Lancashire and therefore had an insider’s knowledge of the region. We flew to Manchester from Belfast International with easyJet on the first flight of the day and by 10 am were at Preston Railway Station, where we had arranged to be picked up by our friends.

You haven’t been to India until you’ve been to the deep South

You haven’t been to India until you’ve seen south India, argues contributor NATASHA WARCHOLAK. You’re more likely to meet locals rather than back-packers, the people are friendlier, the food is fantastic and the area has a magnetic charm….

IF YOU think you have been to India because you’ve partied in Goa or ‘done’ Rajasthan, chance is you are wrong. The country is so big and so diverse that no two trips to the Indian subcontinent are the same. If you can afford to take some time off, it would be worth considering adding South India - the very bottom tip of the country - to your ‘been there, done that’ list.
