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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Postcards from…Gran Canaria

I’ve recently returned from a relaxing and chilled week in the Canary Island of Gran Canaria. My usual island of choice in this area is Tenerife, an island that holds a special place in my heart. However, upon insistence from…

Tenerife | Sun, Sea And Total Relaxation

The last time I ventured overseas for a week of relaxation was September 2014. While I’ve worked hard and been lucky to have a couple of breaks overseas since, it’s been far too long since I spent the day doing…

TRYP Palma Bellver, Palma

On our recent trip to Palma, we wanted the best of both worlds – interesting city break and lazy days lounging by the pool. I thought it was a bit ambitious, and didn’t hold much hope of finding an affordable…

Taste of Palma: Street Art

When I was planning a trip Palma, images of sunshine, cocktails, tapas and amazing churches sprang to mind. Not once did it occur to me that there would be amazing sculptures dotted around the city. But the city is in…

Postcard from…Palma Cathedral

One of the big sights to see in Palma is the impressive Palma Cathedral. I love Palma, I love churches and I love everything Gaudi has turned his hand to, so I knew I was going to love Palma Cathedral!…

Postcard from…Gaudi

My favourite church of all time is La Sagrada Familia, designed by the architect Antoni Gaudi. When you wander through Barcelona, you can see his influence all over the city. So I was majorly excited when I found out that…

Palma | Bus tour fun and perfect endings!

Our last full day in Palma, yesterday was our last chance to get everything done that we’d missed so far. And the best way to fit everything in and see the top tourist sites? Bus Tour! That’s right, we went…

Postcard from…a Mallorcan farm? 

While I’m in Palma and checking out the sights, I’ve kept an eye out for some great postcards to add to my collection, and to also remind me of the great things I’ve seen.  This postcard does neither – I…
