The Pancake house & Water Garden

Earlier last month we managed to squeezed in the Dutch Pancake House at Conwy Water Garden North Wales in our quite busy schedule. Thought of trying out this place as it was suggested by a friend. Part of the plan was to get some stuff for our fish tank and of course you can't come to this place without dining in and trying out their famous sweet and savoury pancakes and so we did and we love it! The Italian pancakes was best of best and we highly recommend it. Not only this place offer food but also they have a lakeside walking paths and as well as various of water garden stuffs. It's really a perfect place to go for a family day out. Yes, I was fascinated with ponds designs and fountains. So when we move to our next place we are considering of installing a pond - now that we know where to get it and how much it cost - all we have to do is to save up and be ready for that time to come. Yeehaaaaaa...

The beauty of Dartmouth (Way back Wednesday - Summer 2013)

As I've always said, there are plenty of beautiful places to see around UK and we haven't even scratched the surface yet. Dartmouth is one of the beautiful town that lies within the South of Devon area. It has an amazing and most outstanding beauty of nature that I don't mind seeing again and again. I simply love cruising at the river dart. The first time I've been was on 2007 and was around during the Dartmouth Regatta. The same time last year, would you believe? We were never sure when is the exact date of the Dartmouth Regatta but we guess it is on at the end of the month of August. Well, it only means that it is more fun strolling around the town with more and  exciting things to see and more so, the abundant choices of food.  Here's a few of the chosen pictures that are worth sharing ;)...

Travelodge is a Clean, Fresh, Spacious & Excellent Hotel...

Couple weeks ago we traveled down South to attend an important event, a birthday party. We went there Thursday and stayed at my in-laws for couple of nights and then on Saturday night we decided to stay at the Travelodge Gatwick Central for the first time. We normally stay at the other hotel around the area but Travelodge was closer to where my friends lived and we are also keen to see how this newly renovated hotel looks like. It was a Renaissance Hotel before Travelodge bought it. As a family of 5, we were given 2 family rooms. As to my surprised it was bigger than the previous family rooms we stayed in before. Also, it is so clean, fresh and so neatly decorated. What I love the most is the room layout where the bathroom is placed more privately. I just loved it! I honestly think this hotel has shoot up its standard. The rooms space & the room view (where our rooms are anyway) were pleasant and we had a very well-rested night. It is an excellent hotel or transit hotel for the value of money. What more is, it is close to the biggest Tesco supermarket in the UK, 10 minutes to county oak where there are shopping stores you can wander around and most of all it is only 5 minutes to the Gatwick airport. I think Travelodge did an awesome job of offering this awesome, spacious & well laid out family rooms. I personally rate them '☆'...

my daughter really enjoy the night and gave it ☆.
