Cordoba | Lost and Loving It

After a quick look around Cordoba yesterday, we were ready for a full day exploring this Spanish gem. With just one day to see as much as possible, we were up and out early, grabbing a croissant and coffee en…

Cordoba | Thank Goodness For Umbrellas

We woke up on our last day in Barcelona to find a storm raging in full force. I took some time to sit and watch the lightning break over the city, lighting everything up, before chucking the last bits in…

Barcelona | Turning 30 In Style

Early mornings are reserved work days and morning flights. I’m a firm believer that early mornings and holidays don’t mix, but when it’s your boyfriend’s 30th birthday, you’re in Barcelona and his parents have come to the city for the…

Barcelona | Welcome Back!

After waiting six years to return to the first city ever to steal my heart, I was so excited to get out and explore Barcelona again! After leaving the beautiful sunshine and warmth in Rome, we decided to head straight…

Rome – Barcelona | Travel Day

As with all days, the plan was to get up, packed and out early so we could fit in some last sights before leaving for Barcelona. And not one to want to break the habit of a lifetime, it took…

Rome | A Vatican Kinda Day

After the chaos of the crowds yesterday, I was keen to give Rome the chance it deserved and really let myself fall in love with the city. Over a delicious breakfast, the plan was set that we’d head to Vatican…

Rome | Did Someone Say Crowded?

Early morning flights are a great idea until you’re waking up at 3am fumbling around in the dark trying to pack the last minute bits without waking up your boyfriend before you have to. Forget never wake a sleeping child…never…

Postcard from…Barcelona

Barcelona was the first city I ever visited on a city break. At the tender age of 21, I thought I’d smashed my experience of Barcelona, but in hindsight it wasn’t until I picked up this postcard that I realised…

Pisa | More Than Just A Wonky Tower?

Waking up on our last day in Pisa, our bags were quickly packed and left with the reception desk. Having booked our tickets to climb the tower the day before, I was concerned our climb slot of 9.30am was going…

Pisa | A Day Of Spas and Train Dramas

After a couple of days exploring Florence, it was time to jump back on the train and see what Pisa has to offer. I’d checked the train timetable and as the trains run frequently between the two cities we were…

11 Signs That Florence Has Flair

It’s not often I take note of road signs when I visit a new country, as I’m often walking around on foot and don’t need to know if that street is one way or if the speed limit is 40km…

Palma | Sightseeing In The Capital

The capital of Mallorca, Palma is a city I could wander around for days on end. I first visited for a city break in 2014, and made my way back in October for a last minute holiday in the sun…

Review | Photowall Canvas

It’s no secret that I love photos. They’re a great way to refresh your memory of amazing things that you’ve experienced, and also to show people what you’ve been up to when words just don’t do it justice. Something I…

Palma | Sun, Sand and Cycling

After a busy few months at work, I was in desperate need of a break away. The sun beating down on me, a spacious pool, good food and absolutely nothing on the itinerary but a few books and regular sun…

Relais Venezia, Venice

In a city as compact as Venice, there are hotels within a stone’s throw of most places. But, trying to find somewhere central, comfortable and at a reasonable price is tricky in a city where most places carry a Venetian…

Postcards from…Playa de Palma

After my first visit to Palma in 2014 for a city break, I absolutely fell in love with the city. The food, the weather, the language, the architecture, the winding side streets…there are many, many reasons I have been keen…
