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…

Monkey Island Afternoon Tea

As a treat for my boyfriend, I thought it’d be nice to take him for afternoon tea. We’d already decided we were going to spend the day at Windsor Castle, so decided it’d be good to look for somewhere in…

8 days and counting!

This week has been such a muddle and such a drag that I cannot wait to be flying off to Palma next week. In fact, in 8 days I will hopefully be there (Spanish air controllers permitting…) with a cocktail…

Taste of Bruges: Sights

If anyone asks me the prettiest place I’ve ever been, Bruges is always the winner. It’s not the biggest city, but there is definitely plenty to see there. Grote Markt Not just your standard square, Grote Markt is the main…

Photo Friday: Chapel

I’m still reeling from my visit to the stunning St Albans Cathedral! When I first entered the cathedral, I walked into the main area of worship (pews, altar, that kind of thing). As I made my way through, soaking up…

Postcard from…Mona Lisa

A world famous painting, in a world famous museum…how could I not get a postcard to remember it? I was lucky enough to find my way to the Mona Lisa when I visited the Louvre in Paris. For anyone who…

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…

Postcard from…Estepona

The sunny Costa del Sol is a holiday hotspot on the south east coast of Spain. During the summer, you can expect long days of glorious sunshine and dips in the warm sea. Unfortunately for me, I visited in March. While…

Postcard from…Rose Window

The rose window of any cathedral is always a big highlight – the size alone is impressive, but when you look at it in more detail the stories told in each window are incredible. The best rose window I’ve seen…

Taste of Berlin: Travel

In a city as efficient and modern as Berlin, you just know that getting around is going to be super easy, regardless of whether you speak the language or not. First things first – getting to Berlin. There are a…

Postcard from…Coral Bay

Cyprus is a beautiful island, and as such just screams out holiday destination. I’ve been to Cyprus a couple of times on holiday, and picked this postcard up on one of those holidays. Just looking at it reminds me of…

Photo Friday: Notre Dame Ceiling

Notre Dame is a stunning cathedral in the centre of Paris. One of my favourite things to do in churches is look up, and I was definitely not disappointed in Notre Dame! If you look to the right of the…

Taste of Brussels: Street Art

Street art is often subjective, and what one person may like, appreciate and see as art, another might just think is graffiti. I’ve seen my fair share of graffiti on my travels, and let’s be honest, it’s hard to stop…

Postcard from…Checkpoint Charlie Museum

I hadn’t expected to get a postcard from the Checkpoint Charlie Museum that wasn’t of Checkpoint Charlie or the sign close by notifying people that they’re in the American sector. Instead, I found this one. After we’d worked our way…

Crowne Plaza Heythorp Park, Oxford

A weekend away with the family is always lovely, and when you’re actually spending the weekend at a spa hotel in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside it’s twice as nice. And I’m talking no signal on your phone kind…
