Cumbria Lakes, Barcelona and Eden Hall Health Spa

I've also had some other holidays this year. We went to Lake Windermere in Cumbria for a romantic valentine few days complete with snow and beautiful views over the lake.

The apartment we rented was really nice with flat screen tv and a beautiful modern kitchen and bathroom. I can give you all the details of this if you want them.

We also went on a Royal Caribbean Taster Cruise in May with some friends and stayed in Barcelona for two nights before joining the "Voyager of the Seas" cruise. We stayed on the cruise ship for four nights and called at Nice and Palma, Mallorca. We had a great trip and really enjoy the taster cruises as they are such good value for money and not too long. Unfortunately we booked to stay in Barcelona the weekend of the Grand Prix and so I really struggled to get us a Hotel which in the end wasn't much cop at all so not worth mentioning but we did find one we want to stay at next year which had been recommended to us so we booked a meal there and its was wicked. Hotel 1898 on La Rambla which is where everyone wants to stay . We also had a terrific meal at one of the many fish restaurants in the port of Barcelona called Restaurant Emperador. You have to book to get a table at this one but it's worth it as the food is delicious and the atmosphere electric especially the weekend we went as I was full of personnel and celebrities who were to do with the Grand Prix. Its our second visit to Barcelona and we loved it just as much as the first with so many places you need to see that it's too many to mention but just ask if you want any info.

Finally Eden Hall is a Health Spa in Newark, Nottinghamshire and I usually go for my birthday with my daughter for a day at Ragdale Hall Health Hydro but decided on a change this year. The weather was glorious so we were able to lie outside in the pretty garden but I must admit had the weather been bad I would not have enjoyed it as much as I do at Ragdale which has more relaxation rooms and a much nicer swimming pool but all in all we had a lovely day. The websites for both those are and oh! and don't expect to lose any weight as the food at them both is out of this world. !!
