Silver Travel Advisor Article:

Are you, like me, done with airport hassle? I simply cannot stand in another queue at some ungodly hour, shoes off, clutching my trousers as now beltless, whilst trying to grapple my laptop out of my rucksack and pop my lipstick in a plastic bag that’s always too small or won’t close properly! No more can I do it. It is Great Britain for me this year. And upon investigation, there are some seriously good holiday options available.

Millionaire's Shortbread with Cadbury's Créme EggsNow we’re all raspberry jam fans, but imagine adding prosecco into the mix. This seeded raspberry jam is made using Silver Spoon Jam Sugar. This sugar contains the right amount of natural pectin that certain fruits lack, it helps ensure the jam sets quickly and retains its fresh fruity flavour and natural colour. The added prosecco gives this jam a wonderful flavour and is great spread on a slice of toast. This would be the perfect recipe to make ahead and give out as presents to loved ones and just to have in your own cupboard for a breakfast treat!

Dear Silver Travellers

Well, here’s an inspirational photo – the astonishing Dame Joan dedicating the bell as godmother of Uniworld Boutique River Cruises SS Joie de Vivre in Paris (of course!) at the christening ceremony. As she so rightly said, “I won’t be defined by my age. I think people should be defined by the age they act, look and feel”. Joan Collins is 83 – we know we should never mention a woman’s age but whatever her secret is, we’re queuing up at Silver Towers to try it out! Two of our Silver Travel writers were there too. Sue Bryant had the luck to attend this sparkling event, read her article here. Jeannine Williamson took the cruise along the Seine on SS Joie de Vivre and had the most marvellous time.

We have a packed newsletter again for you this month including holiay prizes, our new Silver Travel Book Club and much more - and we'd like to welcome many new Silver Travellers to our friendly community.

And for those of you who are new to Silver Travel, you can read more about what we do.
