Marbella is a lovely coastal resort town in southern Spain, around 45 minutes drive from Malaga airport. It is known as a rather glamorous holiday destination and has dozens of upmarket hotels, as well as some stylish and still budget […]

Gorgeous Marbella in Photos

I’m a pretty lucky girl as Thomas whisked me off to Marbella in southern Spain last week to celebrate my 26th birthday! Celebrating my birthday away from home has become something of a little tradition and this was the third birthday I’ve enjoyed in a different place. So much more fun than staying home!

We were in Marbella for four nights […]

I’m off to Marbs!

(You’ll get that reference if you’re from the UK and have ever heard of The Only Way is Essex aka TOWIE. I’ve never even seen the programme, but have heard the ‘no carbs before Marbs’ mantra of some of the cast members. If you haven’t seen TOWIE then don’t worry, you’re not missing anything!)

So, yeah, I’m off […]

By |December 22nd, 2015|Travel Tales, Spain, Destinations|1 Comment

You might think you’ve heard of all the Canary Islands – you know there’s Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, Fuertaventura, but did you know there’s actually several more islands that make up this area?

I had the pleasure of visiting La Palma, the most north-westerly of the Canary Islands and was blown away by this little-known gem.
Where is it?
La Palma is the […]

Alternative Cities to Visit in Europe

By |January 12th, 2015|Travel Tales, France, Spain, Scotland, Croatia|2 Comments

You know that feeling when you want to take a trip but aren’t sure where to go?

Sure, you could hit up some of Europe’s big-name cities like Paris, Rome, Barcelona or Madrid but, maybe you’ve already been there, or you just don’t feel like going somewhere that feels as though everyone visits. Or perhaps it’s that the inflated prices of the popular […]

My Top Things to do in Barcelona

By |June 12th, 2014|Travel Tales, Spain, Destinations|2 Comments

Barcelona is a city that I absolutely adore. The architecture is some of my favourite in the world, the food is to die for and I love the constant buzz and excitement of the city. It offers the glorious mix of having a beautiful beach where you can relax with the sand between your toes and the sun on your skin and it also offers all of the things you’d expect from a cosmopolitan major city.

I’ve been to Barcelona probably around ten different times so I like to think I know the city pretty well (although I am by no means an expert) so here’s some of my favourite top things to do in Barcelona… […]

Touring the Camp Nou – Home of Barcelona FC

By |May 30th, 2014|Spain, Destinations|2 Comments

If you follow me on Twitter then you’ll probably have noticed that I tweet quite frequently about football (that’s soccer for my lovely American readers!). I love football and have done ever since I was little and I wanted to hang with my dad and brother while they watched it. I support two football teams, one from Scotland and one from Spain – Barcelona FC.

I watch pretty much every single one of Barcelona’s games during the season and for any boys out there who think girls are clueless about football, I’d be happy to prove you wrong and have a discussion about the offside rule, this summers transfer rumours or anything else football related! […]

Barcelona City Guide for Cruise Passengers

By |May 27th, 2014|Spain, Destinations, Ports & Destinations|0 Comments

The Catalan capital, Barcelona, is becoming an increasingly popular port of call for cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean and I can definitely see why. I adore the city with its striking architecture, sporting attractions, delicious tapas and the tantalising option of exploring the city or simply relaxing at the beach.

If you’re visiting Barcelona as a cruise passenger then here’s my […]
