My mam says I have more holidays than Judith Chalmers, so I thought it was a great name for a travel blog.
Hi, I'm Martin and I'm based in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear.
I live with my partner of 9 years. We like to travel as often as possible, however, our day jobs and of course our finances dictate where we can go.
My first "real" holiday was when I was 18. I went to Palma Nova, Majorca with my best friend at the time. It was an All-inclusive hotel, and I thought it was amazing! As much food and drink as you wanted and you didn't have to worry about how much spending money you needed!
Over the last 22 years, I've stayed in a variety of hotels, from a hostel in San Francisco to a luxury villa in Koh Samuii and everything in between. I've visited various cities including Boston, Miami, New York, Doha, Bangkok, Cairo, Madrid and most recently Santiago in Chile.
I believe in providing an honest review about the hotel I'm staying in or the restaurant I've had a meal from. Each of these reviews are based on my own personal experience.
I've paid for them myself (or the other half has) and I haven't received any payment for doing so.
I'll also share some tips I've picked up over the years on how to make travel easier and sometimes a little bit cheaper!
