The Mini-Guide to Cozumel Day Trips (Cozumel Pearl Farm and Temazcal Cozumel) from Pearl Escapes 2015 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $0.00
Hi there, I'm Pearl Howie (aka Pearl Escapes) and this is my guide to two incredible day trip escapes in Cozumel. If you have just one day to spend in Cozumel (for example, you're on a cruise) you... More > have a really, really tough decision ahead of you. Normally I only recommend one sight or escape in each location, but I cannot pick between these two. I also normally recommend somewhere to stay, how to travel and a nice restaurant – but you won't need any of this if you're on a cruise that stops for one day in Cozumel. I started writing these guides because I used to get extremely burned out in my old job and couldn't even handle finding and booking a hotel and flight or figuring out what to do when I did take time off, so, I thought, "wouldn't it be awesome if someone would write a guide that just gave you one perfect escape; the perfect hotel, spa, flight and restaurant." So that's what I did.< Less
The Guide to Tuscany With Teenagers (Livorno, Florence, Viareggio and Pisa - the Hotels, the Duomo, the Pool, the Pizza, the Passiagata, the Beaches, the Beach Club, the Plane, the Trains and the Taxis) from Pearl Escapes 2015 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $3.93
Hi there, I'm Pearl Howie (aka Pearl Escapes) and this is my guide to travelling around Tuscany with teenagers. People often think of teenagers as difficult or complaining, well I have to say that... More > we had more travel snarl ups on this trip than I've had on the rest put together and the girls were uncomplaining, patient and more grown up than most grown ups (although those eyes looking up at me on the delayed British Airways flight begging "will we actually get there" will haunt me for a bit). I started writing these guides because I used to get extremely burned out in my old job and couldn't even handle finding and booking a hotel and flight or finding what to do when I did take time off (I could never have planned this trip!) So, I thought "wouldn't it be awesome if someone would write a guide that just gave you one perfect escape; the perfect hotel, spa, flight and restaurant." So that's what I did.< Less
The Guide to Massage, Spa Treatments and Healing from Pearl Escapes 2017 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $33.72
Seven years ago I had a traditional massage in Morocco and felt the deep physical, mental and spiritual healing that can come from a great treatment. I started researching massages and spas,... More > particularly traditional treatments from around the world; I travelled to China, Japan, Mexico, Iceland, Tuscany and tried ancient treatments in central London, then I started writing about them so that others could benefit from this research. In 2016 I experienced the most powerful healing yet, in a Native American spa in Arizona. It's all in this book. Was the healing all down to this one incredible treatment, or was it the cumulative effect of years of exploration? I don't know, but wherever you want to start, this guide to over 300 different massages and spa terms will help you plan your healing journey.< Less
The Guide to Las Vegas (the Sight, the Hotel, the Buffet, the Massage, the Spa, the Flight and the Rest) from Pearl Escapes 2016 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $1.29
Hi there, I'm Pearl Howie (aka Pearl Escapes) and this is my slightly sleepy guide to Las Vegas. I used to get extremely burned out in my old job and couldn't even handle finding and booking a... More > hotel and flight or finding what to do when I did take time off. So, I thought "wouldn't it be awesome if someone would write a guide that just gave you one perfect escape; the perfect hotel, spa, flight and restaurant." So that's what I did. I believe I've found the perfect Vegas hotel (it was a challenge, there are hundreds, if not thousands of excellent contenders in Vegas), two excellent spas, a restaurant, and a review of my flight that includes a fantastic way to stretch out without paying for first class, (I know, I need to write more easy to follow stuff about airmiles because you can really work them) and The Strip sights, but I can only apologise that I didn't make it to what looked like the hottest club in Vegas – so I can only give you a tip and not a personal review of that one.< Less
The Guide to Orlando Convention Center or Orange County Convention Center (the Convention, the Hotel, the Zero Entry Pool, the Massage, the Flight and the Food) from Pearl Escapes 2013, 2014 and 2015 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $1.31
Hi there, I'm Pearl Howie (aka Pearl Escapes) and this is my guide to the Orlando Convention Center aka the OCCC, that's the Orange County Convention Center. Why not the whole of Orlando? Well I... More > arrived, went straight to my hotel and the Convention Center, spent the next six nights bouncing like a pin ball around the complex and then picked up a car and high tailed it out of there, so have absolutely no knowledge of the surrounding area. If you are planning to do anything other than Zumba Convention (or any other convention at the Orlando Convention Center) I seriously recommend you buy another guide. I used to get extremely burned out in my old job and couldn't even handle finding and booking a hotel and flight or finding what to do when I did take time off. So, I thought "wouldn't it be awesome if someone would write a guide that just gave you one perfect escape; the perfect hotel, spa, flight and restaurant." So that's what I did.< Less
The Guide to Vero Beach (the Best Food and Spa In Florida, the Massages, the Hotel, the Turtles, the Paddle Boarding, and the Sharks) from Pearl Escapes 2013, 2014 and 2015 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $1.31
Vero Beach in Florida is a real discovery. Just staying in the hotel you can enjoy the best massage and food in Florida, then add in an unspoilt beach full of turtle nests, a shipwreck, (sharks!),... More > an old fashioned but cosmopolitan main street and even a labyrinth nearby and it is an exceptional escape. They really look after me here, especially the main chef, who, although he is from Peru, brings Cuba to Vero Beach. It makes my mouth water just to think of it. Bring your appetite. I used to get extremely burned out in my old job and couldn't even handle finding and booking a hotel and flight or finding what to do when I did take time off. So, I thought "wouldn't it be awesome if someone would write a guide that just gave you one perfect escape; the perfect hotel, spa, flight and restaurant." So that's what I did.< Less
The Guide to Clearwater Beach, Florida (the Hotel, the Dolphin Boat Trip, the Desert Island, the Dolphin Rescue Centre and the Travel) from Pearl Escapes 2013, 2014 and 2015 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $1.29
Hi there, I'm Pearl Howie (aka Pearl Escapes) and this is my guide to Clearwater in Florida. It's a wonderful place, with dolphins galore and also my base for my first time seeing a manatee (for a... More > bigger guide that also includes the Safety Harbor and Crystal River escapes, check out my guide to swimming with wild manatees). I used to get extremely burned out in my old job and couldn't even handle finding and booking a hotel and flight or finding what to do when I did take time off. So, I thought "wouldn't it be awesome if someone would write a guide that just gave you one perfect escape; the perfect hotel, spa, flight and restaurant." So that's what I did.< Less
The Guide to Swimming With Wild Manatees In Crystal River, Florida (the Snorkelling, the Rescue Park, the Hotels, the Fountain of Youth, Safety Harbor, the Spa, the Food, Tampa Airport and the Travel) from Pearl Escapes 2013, 2014 and 2015 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $5.31
Swimming with wild manatees, which has only recently been permitted in certain areas of Florida (and which may be banned again at any time) was one of the best experiences of my entire life. There... More > are very few special encounters like this with wild animals in the world, where you are not pursuing or enticing animals, they just want to play with you and that makes this experience miraculous. Even the world's experts in wildlife tours put this at the top of their wish list. I used to get extremely burned out in my old job and couldn't even handle finding and booking a hotel and flight or finding what to do when I did take time off. So, I thought "wouldn't it be awesome if someone would write a guide that just gave you one perfect escape; the perfect hotel, spa, flight and restaurant." So that's what I did. (Although this guide has several hotel options… it's just that kind of area.)< Less
Love and the Perfect Wave By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $7.98
Rachel doesn't really care about perfect waves, she cares about the perfect man. Her only reason for learning to surf is to impress Steve, the guy she has had a crush on for years and has finally... More > managed to get into bed. Now she's trying to cover up the fact that she's been a desperate workaholic for the last ten years, before he notices. Gym work outs, lingerie shopping trips and a serious spring clean are on the cards, but will it all be enough to keep him interested?< Less
The Guide to Florida – the Sights, the Beaches, the Wildlife, the Hotels, the Spas, the Massage, the Food and the Travel (Orlando Convention Center aka OCCC, Clearwater Beach, Naples, Key Largo and Vero Beach) from Pearl Escapes 2013 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $6.53
Before I got the chance to go to a convention I had no intention of ever setting foot in Florida. Why? Sharks, crocs AND gators, swamps… it seemed everyone in Florida was either an old age... More > pensioner in a sun hat or a family of four on their way to Disneyland. I was wrong. So wrong, super wrong and all I could think of when I got to Clearwater Beach was… this is a beach. (And it just kept getting better.) Yes, there are crocs, and gators and sharks and I've seen a fair few, but there are also turtles and dolphins and manatees (and flying fish and bioluminescence and horseshoe crabs) who have given me some of the best days of my life. I used to get extremely burned out in my old job and couldn't handle researching and booking a hotel and flight or finding what to do when I did take time off. So, I thought "wouldn't it be awesome if someone would write a guide that just gave you one perfect escape; the perfect hotel, spa, flight and restaurant." So that's what I did.< Less
