Apologies for the recent down time on the blog. Our domain expired as the reminder emails were going to the wrong email address which meant it went down for a small period of time. Unfortunately we lost a lot of our content but nevertheless we shall begin from scratch if need be as it is a hobby of love! It is the time of year to be booking your holidays as it gets closer to summer and many people will have already made bookings or put down deposits for their big holiday of year.
The most popular destinations will remain the same with Spain and France leading the way due to being close to home. Other destinations will include the USA which can turn out quite expensive or even further afield like Dubai. Although not being a fan of long flights we feel Australia is often over looked for obvious reasons. Australia is about a 28 hour journey from Ireland which can sound quite long but at the end of the way it is only 2 flights away and you are on the other side of the planet. It has great weather, amazing beaches but can be quite pricey especially in cities like Sydney and Melbourne.
We have decided to go out to Sydney again this year and this will be our third time out there as we have family in Sydney. We have done a lot of the tourist activities there already so this time we just plan to soak up the Australian lifestyle and relax on the beach, go for a surf and go out to the many great cafes in Sydney. We will be going for 1 month so we plan on bringing our android TV box so we can watch TV from home and not miss any of the rugby on show. For those of you interested in an android box you can check out the android tv boxes website in Australia.
