Welcome to our new site ‘The Posh Travel Blog’. We are a couple of dedicated travelholics who like nothing more than jumping on a plane or a ship to anywhere…as long as it’s posh, or nearly posh! We are both really thrilled and buzzing to have launched our travel blog recently, and share with our readers experiences over many years of travelling to some of the most beautiful, luxurious, and far flung destinations in the World.

Of course we still have the travel bug, (and as far as we know there’s no innoculation for it!) so we will be reviewing all the places we are visiting in the future, and we know there will be quite a few! We will also carry on writing on our Cruise blog, Port blog, Marbella blog and North Norfolk blog, and anything else we think may be of interest to you.

We have some exciting news..We have just launched our youtube channel Theposhtravelblog and are busy uploading video blogs on our travels, with reviews on cruising and hotels. Please subscribe to our channel to get alerts on the latest videos, we really appreciate your support!

We hope you enjoy our blog. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for the latest additions, updates and recommendations. We want to give honest and informative reviews and suggestions. Thanks for visiting, we really appreciate it
