DK spent the best part of the week attending the ITB travel show in Berlin. This is the largest travel show in the world, held every March. It is spread over 26 halls so it is huge and if you cover more than one geographical area, you really have to plan your days.
MH & DK from Chiclocations travelled from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv to take in the sites, contrasts and history of Israel. They were only there for three days, but managed to see and experience so much in that short time. By all accounts, they had an amazing time.
MH and DK from Chic are in Israel for a few days. It is MH’s first visit to Israel, and DK’s first return since 1968. MH has been totally taken it by the sites and diversity of Jerusalem.

Songkran is the 13th April but the celebrations start at least a day in advance, and go on for several days after. Easter Good Friday is the 14th April and Sunday the 16th.
A cold spell, known as the Artic Blast, is travelling across Europe and it brought an unexpected day of snow to the people of Athens.
With immediate effect, Thailand has banned any vaporisers, E-cigarettes or refills. These will be confiscated upon arrival, and if you abuse the law by using within Thailand, you will be at least fined, or at worse imprisoned.
A great day in Barbados and an interesting one in St Vincent and Mustique. After visiting MH’s family in Dominica for Christmas, it was my turn to visit my family in Barbados. I just love the island – it has so much to offer. The beaches on the west coast are super, but I would […]
