Top winter destinations in Europe

Christmas markets, Germany & Austria

December sees these romantic historic markets pop up all over Germany and other Central European nations. Expect cute stalls selling everything from gingerbread to sleigh bells and plenty of good cheer, toasted with a glass of warming glühwein.

Athens, Greece

It’s a real downer trying to Photoshop 500 people out of your would-be-prizewinning Parthenon photo, but in winter it’s not an issue. All summer stresses – crowding, tourist pricing, intense heat, queues, air pollution – more or less disappear. It’s the best time to explore the country’s ancient heritage and get to experience local culture.

Copenhagen, Denmark

For fairytale European winter, it’s hard to beat the home of Hans Christian Andersen. Forget the over-hyped Little Mermaid and head to the city’s cosy bars and cafes to watch snow flurrying outside. In the heart of town, the 19th-century Tivoli amusement park is a romantic, kitsch delight around Christmastime, with heartwarming illuminations and body-warming mugs of glögg.

Budapest, Hungary

Couples skating hand-in-hand, breath cloudy in the frosty air – there’s nowhere better for it than the Hungarian capital’s picturesque central park Városligeti Műjégpálya, with its enormous outdoor rink. Feeling chilly afterwards? Budapest is famous for its ornate thermal baths.

Venice, Italy

Hauntingly beautiful and rather weird, Venice’s Carnevale in February is a European highlight. Elaborate costumes and spooky masks bring the canal city’s colourful history to life. Costumed dances are pricey affairs, but you can have a ball enjoying the free events with a mask bought on the street, but be prepared for epic crowding.

•             Loss of interest in sex

•             Difficulty in experiencing an orgasm

Many men, women and couples who attend a Tantric Journey treatment session or course realise after their training that they had been leading their life switched off and that they had been unable to feel fully, instead they had just been going through the motions of daily life. After Tantric Journey training that incorporates Tantra and Tao practices many students report an incredible increase in their creativity, energy levels, drive for life and passion.

St David’s Day Marked at Lodge Brothers & Wickendens Ealing

Ealing branch of Lodge Brothers & Wickendens marked St David’s Day this weekend with a colourful display of daffodils alongside the traditional Welsh flag, in memory of past clients of Welsh origin.

District Manager Paul Bye explains “It’s important that all our branches respect the multi cultural communities they serve and hang flags on as many public holidays as possible. This has become a recognised event in the local community and locals now look out for the change of the window displays.”

Funds Raised for Home Start by Lodge Brothers Walton

The staff at Lodge Brothers Walton were delighted to welcome Carol Hodges (Manager) and Gill Robinson (Family Support Coordinator) from the charity ‘Home Start’ to the branch, to present them with a cheque for £150 for monies raised with donations from the local community.

Both Ann McMurray (Branch Arranger) and Sharon Brunn (Relief Branch Arranger), made holly wreaths at Christmas time, which were available from the Walton branch for anybody who wanted to remember their loved one. Whilst it was not a requirement, people still generously made donations in return for taking a wreath home with them.

Ann said “It is a difficult time of year for many families who have lost a loved one, and therefore we wanted to help them by providing something special which could either be taken home as a table decoration, or even placed in memory of someone in a special place.”

Sharon chose the charity Home Start as the worthy cause to receive the monies raised.

Have you ever wondered if you need sex therapy?

Perhaps you and your partner need some help in your sexual relationship or perhaps you have a problem that you would like to discuss and get some help overcoming any potential problems with sexual intimacy.

First I am sure you would like to know what is sex therapy?

Sex therapy London can provide psychosexual therapy to help individuals and couples with sexual related problems through counselling, nursing or medicine. Often the sex therapist in London prescribes medicine to help with these issues as talking therapy is not fully capable of resolving the sexual related issues. Often the sex therapist prescribes medicine even for the mildest of sexual related problems such as erectile or climaxing issues. Chemicals tend to alter the human hormonal functionality and therefore hinder natural functionality. Therefore Tantric Journey’s sex therapist provides a natural treatment on the basis of Cellular Memory where the human body learns to build its own defence mechanism against the sexual related problems. A Tantric Journey’s sex therapist in London can offer talking therapy to enter a comfort zone and diagnosis and perform clothes on bodywork or a full body oil massage employing techniques that support Cellular Memory.

Sex therapist London is quite vital to pacify the amount of sex related crimes in the country.  Often the ‘abused’ becomes the ‘abuser’. Sex therapy in London is offered in two way through counselling also known as talking therapy or medicinal ways to combat the sexual issue.  Tantric Journey offers sex therapy via clothes on bodywork or a full body oil massage. Sex therapy in London offered by Tantric Journey can be viewed as an alternative medicine that employs the fundamental basis of Cellular Memory and Molecules of Emotions that is a current age well researched and studied subject. Tantric Journey’s sex therapy has helped many sexual troubled individuals resolve their problems and many couples sustain happy fulfilling intimate relationships.  Tantric Journey’s sex therapy eliminates the problem by eliminating the biological makeup of the issue which proves to be the most effective method.
