I love cruising and all it has to offer. Great accommodation – unpack once and enjoy the rest of your stay. Visit fabulous locations, take your pick of entertainment options, and exceptional food.

I love to enjoy a cocktail or two after a hard day in the conference room and cruise ships have great cocktail bars and talented bar staff.

One of my favourite cocktails is a Mojito – see the recipe below.

How To:

  • juice of 1 lime1 tsp granulated sugar
  • small handful mint leaves, plus an extra sprig to serve
  • 60ml white rum
  • soda water, to taste

Muddle the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves in a small jug, crushing the mint as you go – you can use the end of a rolling pin for this. Pour into a tall glass and add a handful of ice.

Pour over the rum, stirring with a long-handled spoon. Top up with soda water, garnish with mint and serve.


You can also add ginger syrup and a garnish of naked ginger and create a Ginger Mojito or try pomegranate syrup and seeds and create a Pomegranate Mojito.

Relaxing and participating in self care strategies is an important part of taking care of yourself.

Please don’t think I’m fostering alcohol abuse as a means of stress management!

But getting together with a group of friends and colleagues at the end of the day with a drink (alcoholic or not) is a lovely way to engage and debrief.

CPD Travel is a fantastic way to combine an exceptional education program with a fabulous destination.

This is an awesome alternative to the more traditional approach to CPD education.

CPD is the means by which members of the Nursing profession maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge, expertise and competence, and develop the personal and professional qualities needed throughout their professional lives.
