Palma | Travel, sights and stunning vistas

I love midday flights. There, I said it! I know we should want the amazing 5am flights so we can jump straight into our first day, but I’m way less stressed being able to get up at a reasonable time and be well slept. So after waking up and finishing…

Palma is go!

After a few really tough months, I’ve finally got a break booked! My boyfriend and I are heading off to the (hopefully) sunny island of Majorca for a city break mashed with a pool holiday. Based on our usual time of booking, we’re way in advance this time as we’ve…
