NEW POST: Unique Vacation Rentals from @bookarentals #glamping #houseboat #treehouse #accommodation #travel

I’m sure we all have our favourite booking platform when it comes to booking hotels? But what if you want something different? Something out of the ordinary? something that maybe you have always dreamed about but never thought was possible? Something…

Mr ESLT and I always try and celebrate birthdays/anniversaries etc exploring somewhere in the world and for my recent 32nd birthday we decided on Milan in Northern Italy. Now I love Italy and have never made a secret of that. It is possibly my favourite country in the world however Milan had never really been on my 'bucket list'. So why choose Milan? Simply answer the flights were cheap!

I would never call myself an art buff, far from it in fact. I do however like art especially from the High Renaissance period. Michelangelo and Da Vinci especially strike a cord with me. I have been lucky enough to previously admire Michelangelo’s David in the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence and the breathtaking Sistine Chapel ceiling within the Vatican, Vatican City. So when Mr ESLT booked us tickets to see The Last Supper in the Santa Maria delle Grazie church on a recent trip to Milan I was very excited.

'll be honest with you, I am not a big fan of football (soccer) but the list of football grounds I have visited around Europe is continually growing. Mr ESLT is quite the football fan therefore we try to visit local stadiums wherever and whenever possible. So, on our recent visit to Milan a visit to the San Siro Stadium was definitely on the cards.

Accommodation in Italy can be very expensive and I'm sure anyone who has ever visited will agree with that. Mr ESLT and I always try to find value for money accommodation wherever we visit. We are definitely not hostel type people and try, where possible to stay in the centre of the town or city we are visiting. Mr ESLT and I normally spend hours researching hotels/apartments/B&Bs when we have plans to visit somewhere.

I’d never been to an Expo (Universal Exposition) before and if I am honest I had never really heard of them before (you may possibly find that shocking coming from someone who is 32). Sorry! We booked flights to Milan before we actually started research into what there actually is to do in the city. A quick google search of ‘things to do in Milan in May 2015’ brought the Expo 2015 Milano to my attention

When I recently visited Sorrento in Southern Italy I was really excited to take a trip down the Amalfi Coast. I had seen so many breathtaking pictures of the buildings built into the side of the cliffs on the Amalfi Coast and desperately wanted to see them with my own eyes, it was certainly on the top of my ‘to do’ list

Not so long ago I read a post about why you shouldn't visit Capri. I have searched and searched and searched the net for it since to no avail. When I read it, it made me think 'is my trip to Capri going to be rubbish?' But me being me I have to experience something for myself and not, not do something because someone else didn't enjoy it or didn't get anything from it. Also, I think the guys who had written it had visited in the off season and struggled to find anything open

Have you ever heard of Herculaneum? I'll be honest I hadn't until I had the opportunity to visit this overlooked town whilst visiting Southern Italy last month. I'm sure we all know the story of Mt Vesuvius erupting in 79AD and wiping out Pompeii by covering it with ash and pumice. Well guess what? This affected Herculaneum too

So have you ever climbed to the top of a volcano? An odd question and one I would have had to say no to up until a couple of weeks ago. That was until I climbed to the top of Mt Vesuvius. Mr ESLT and I were staying in Sorrento (check out our hotel here) and decided that climbing to the top of an active volcano would be a great experience. The trip we booked was via Acampora Travel and cost £39.50 per person including a morning in Pompeii with a guide
