White Island a movie set in Ibiza

Last night we were lucky enough to attend a special nationwide screening of the White Island film based on the book A Bus Could Run You Over by Colin Butts at Vue cinemas.

We had been waiting with anticipation to see the film as we love the book and so many people we know had helped with the making of this adaptation onto the big screen.

First off it did not disappoint, a fantastic story which transferred to the big screen perfectly and our hats go off to Colin Butts and director Benjamin Turner for turning the book into a big screen epic. Read more

The Red House

Continuing my love of books which are set in and around Ibiza, I discovered The Red House through Twitter.  It is a true mystery with a complex but endearing story set in the present and past times of Ibiza.

Maddie is the central character who lives with her husband and children in Ibiza living the idyllic lifestyle we all dream of. After several odd events and occurrences at their villa “The Red House” Maddie suffers a freak accident.

From the dealer desperate for the loo on the inbound flight into the island, to the club rep organising a true off-the-grid party it is a true page turner. Read more
