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 Gaudi had been involved in the design of Palma Cathedral.…

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 all the different aspects on offer, I found myself in…

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 so far was in Notre Dame in Paris, but on…

Postcard from…Brussels

We only had a short amount of time in Brussels, and unfortunately the weather was not on our side. Luckily, my boyfriend and I are British, so we’re more than used to a bit of rain, and it didn’t stop us exploring the city. I was very keen to explore…

Taste of Bruges: Churches

In a city as stunning as Bruges, we thought there are bound to be some pretty amazing churches, and we were not disappointed! Our first church of the stay was Heilig-Bloedbasiliek, also known as the Basilica of the Holy Blood. Tucked away in a quiet corner of Burg, the church…

Postcard from…La Sagrada Familia

Quite possibly my favourite building ever, Sagrada Familia is a stunningly epic cathedral in the centre of Barcelona, Spain. Built by the architect Gaudi, who has left his stamp all over the city, the church is still years away from being completed. But that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a visit now!…

Photo Friday: Local Church

For some reason I love churches – I think it’s the way that nearly all of them are unique and built for such a purpose. There’s so much history in the building and although I’m not religious, I love the way the church can mean so much for so many…

Photo Friday: Berliner Dom

I love a good church, and with mere hours left before we had to be at the airport, my boyfriend and I decided it’d be cool to have a quick visit to the cathedral in Berlin. I won’t go into too much detail, as I’ve got something separate cooking up…

Photo Friday: Tree of wishes

The year has flown by, and we are once again nearing upon the festive period. While I usually fit somewhere on the Christmas scale between excited and the grinch, I find myself feeling overly festive whenever I visit somewhere that has gone all out. This is one of the reasons…

Postcard from…Windsor Castle

During our recent staycation, we decided it was finally time to visit Windsor Castle. Although only 20 minutes from our home, we had never taken a tour and it seemed silly to us that tourists visit England, take the journey out from London and yet we haven’t bothered to drive…

Photo Friday: Sagrada Familia

The famous Sagrada Familia is a popular tourist hotspot in Barcelona, and well worth the visit. We got the audio guide while there, and it’s fascinating how much thought went into the building, with measurements being exact to get just the right kind of acoustics for the choir. Among the…

Photo Friday: Notre Dame

  One of the most famous churches in Europe, Notre Dame is still standing tall since its completion in 1345. For fantastic views of the city of love and romance, you can climb to near the top, but the views of the building itself are pretty amazing. There’s just so…
