Brighton: Oh I Do Love To Be Beside The Seaside!

Getting up bright and early on a Bank Holiday Saturday is not my favourite thing, especially when I'm on the tail end of the busiest month of the year at work. But one thing I hate more than early mornings is traffic, and I will do nearly anything to avoid sitting in the car park [...]

Postcards, Ramsgate

Postcard from…Ramsgate

As a proper seaside town, Ramsgate has all the tourist-y souvenirs that you would expect - sticks of rock, magnets, t-shirts and the like. Of course, I picked a postcard up from my short stay in Ramsgate! While there, I didn't get to see much else than the harbour and the seafront, but it's so pretty [...]

Ramsgate harbour
England, Ramsgate

Speedy trip to the seaside!

Tucked away in the southeast of England, Ramsgate is a charming seaside town. So when my boyfriend and I were invited to a family friend's wedding there, we jumped at the chance for a mini break away! Although it's just a couple of hours drive from West London, passing Heathrow airport on a Friday afternoon as [...]

Postcard from…Cathedral Cove

I love getting postcards, and on my latest visit to my parents house I noticed this postcard lying on the side. My cousin recently moved to New Zealand to train as a pilot, and has sent us a postcard from one of his trips exploring the island. This officially takes the title of furthest postcard I've [...]

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 there may not have been long, warm days with the southern Spanish sun, anything was [...]

Cyprus, Postcards

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 the mornings I spent enjoying breakfast looking out at the perfectly blue sea. My boyfriend [...]

Hotel Review, Tenerife

Mediterranean Palace, Tenerife

So I’ve just returned from a lovely week long holiday to the sunny island of Tenerife. While I have been to the area of Playa de las Americas a few times, I’ve never  stayed at Mediterranean Palace. However, my boyfriend and I have often walked past it en route to other places, and while looking for [...]

Tenerife

Not just another sandcastle…

Half the fun of being on holiday near the beach is building a sandcastle. However, if you're like me and can barely make a decent footprint in the sand, then there are always the pros who whip up creations like the one below. We spotted this sandcastle/ sand mansion/ sand village while walking along Playa [...]

Barcelona, Postcards

Postcard from…Barcelona marina

 An evening scene from one of my favourite European cities.I picked up a few postcards from Barcelona, but this is the one I found of my favourite part of the city. The marina is a vibrant part of the city, with a small shopping centre, aquarium and plenty of restaurants on offer. There's also the [...]
