This will make you dream of sunny holidays and relaxing times by the pool…

How silly of me ! I just realised today that after I said I would slow down on the blog for a few weeks, the last post I published was one on ski locations. A bit of an aberration given that the name of this blog is “From the Poolside” and that new visitors might be surprised to find the home page showing snow !

So in order to remedy that, here are a few photos of the pools of the places we’ve been too and that I have reviewed on the blog.

Hello everyone. As I said, less activity on the blog in the next few weeks but a holiday challenge submitted by Karine picked my curiosity. Ski places have not been featured so far as we rarely go skiing but I’m aware that you, my dear readers, may also want to find some stylish places there.

One year of blogging : lovely readers, sparkly ears, jolies choses and Australia…

Et voilà ! 365 days plus of blogging. Well not exactly 365 days as I didn’t post every day but the blog has certainly been in my thoughts every day of this past year.
It’s a bit a rite of passage to write your “one year anniversary” blog post. With this one, I hope to give you insights about what I set up to achieve and also the plans for the near and longer future.

5 stylish B&B in Bath that will make you want to go there right now ! – holiday challenge #11

My sister sent me an email this morning saying that the choices I had given her for her road trip were great. However she also wanted to do a bit of a city stay in Bath and possibly find a place that would be at a decent budget.
So I quickly used my research skills and whipped out those 5 stylish bed and breakfast in Bath. They are all between £89 and £160 so offer a good combination of affordability without compromising on style and distance to the main attractions in Bath.

Spotted – Hotel Torralbenc, Minorca

Spotted – Hotel Torralbenc, Minorca

Maybe my usual holiday crush for Greece is starting to get competition from the Balearic islands as I am talking to you about Minorca today, after the lovely hotel featured last week in Mallorca!
I am actually looking at both as we start thinking of our next summer holiday. As usual, I will be, surfing the web for ages in my quest to find that perfect place where we can relax but being me, won’t actually book anything until April ! Hopefully my finds will be helpful for those of you being more organised.
