    Comment

  7. Life over 50: Are we the Jet Set Generation?

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Once the children have left home or become more independent, or the mortgage is paid off we have more time and money to spend on ourselves than at previous times of our lives. Are we more interested in travel than other ‘luxuries’ at this time ? What luxuries in life are we willing to forgo in order to travel? Do we value new experiences over ‘things’ once we reach our 50s? A new study conducted on behalf of RIAS suggests that the over 50s are spending more than £2 billion a year on travel…far more per head than the younger generations. But while we might be willing to make sacrifices in other areas of spending to fund our travel, are we in fact wasting our hard earned money once we...
  8. Review of Celtic Manor Hotel and Spa – fab for a girlie break.

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   Better known as a golf resort, I hopped down the M4 with a friend to have a girlie break at Celtic Manor hotel and spa.

As we approached  we were initially struck by how large and imposing the building was. From the moment we pulled up outside the entrance the staff could not have been friendlier or more welcoming. ...
