Scintillating Sicily – the rewarding incentive travel island!

Syracuse Sicily

Sicily – a colourful cultured land with culture borne of diversity, sea and sunshine.

Sicily where soulful dark eyed women, redheads and blond blue eyed men are the inheritance of races from across Africa, Eastern Mediterranean and the Vikings.

Modern Sicily inherits so much more than looks – cuisine, monuments, architecture and more.

We sizzled in scintillating Sicily while testing the beaches, hotels and food.

Our conclusion – Sicily is superb for chilling out and getting laid back or active on travel incentives. And Sicilian wine tastes so much better in Sicily.

“Sicily is still a place where doing nothing is still not seen as a waste of time” (Selleria)

But of course there is so much to

We support Contact The Elderly Charity – A lifeline of friendship!

Contact The Elderly Charity  - Stuck at Home Alone!

Choosing a charity for our business to support took time – there are so many.

Whatever we chose our priorities were personal involvement and making a difference in our “home” community. In Contact The Elderly we found the perfect fit.

So what do we do – in short we put smiles on the faces of lonely, isolated, elderly while reconnecting them with the local community.

And we do it by organising monthly Sunday tea parties for elderly guests using a network of volunteer drivers and volunteer tea party hosts.

As the group coordinator for Redditch & Bromsgrove we find lonely elderly guests, volunteer hosts, volunteer drivers and manage the monthly tea

India- Immense Inspiring Incredible: Tales From My Fam Day 1

Tappas Voyages DMC-Destination Management Company-Fine Dining-Incentive Travel-Team Building-India-Agra-Jaipur-Delhi


India: dazzles & delights; spoils & overwhelms all in a cacophony of sound & movement, colour and culture like no other.

This was my first Indian Fam and to fit in with a MICE Forum in Delhi- so it was The Golden Triangle in four days, sadly I could not make the first two days.

I found the expected and the unexpected.

The Taj Mahal was even more magnificent than any image can portray and the effect of walking through the approach entrance arch, with the sun rising, lifted the hair on the back of my head. Totally unexpected was walking into a hotel restaurant in Delhi and experiencing the same scalp tingle. You can find out which in a

Why not step Innside……..

Dusseldorf Germany K2

I did, courtesy of Melia UK on a recent Fam trip.

I already knew Dusseldorf was the Mustard City, a Fashion & Media hot spot and that Mediahafen is “home” to some amazingly quirky architecture and that Dusseldorf boasts the “World’s Longest Bar”.

But….. there is more!

My first impression was Dusseldorf was too peaceful to be a thriving city with 650,000 residents. It felt more like I was in the countryside. The bird song in the park next to Melia Dusseldorf certainly enhanced that impression.

There was scarcely any traffic!! Where were the traffic jams, exhaust fumes and constantly moving air? The answer – Underground. The ultimate city by pass. Making Dusseldorf the 10-minute city.

This is great for event

Shed a new creative light on your next Italian Incentive!

Tuscany Italy

Tuscany - A charmed land, equally blessed by the genius of man and nature, and often by the combined efforts of both.

Think about the landscape of the gentle and coloured hills, seen in so many movies or pictures.

Think about the fantastic Cultural towns such as Florence, Pisa, Siena, Lucca…

Think about the small villages such as San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Montepulciano…

Think about the geniuses who were born and lived here, such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Think of the vineyards, The Chianti and the Brunello di Montalcino.

Here every inch of land has been sculpted, first by the elements and then by generations of inhabitants whose goals were always twofold: make the land produce as much as possible, make
