Spanish Destinations I Want to Visit

By |May 18th, 2017|Destinations, Spain|1 Comment

Spain’s relatively close proximity to Scotland and the number of cheap flights means that I’ve spent many holidays there. I’ve probably been in Spain about 25 – 30 times so far and feel very lucky for that. Spain is a country I adore. I love the people, the food (oh man, I LOVE the food), the sunshine, the relaxed pace […]

The Picture Perfect Old Town of Marbella

By |June 23rd, 2016|Destinations, Spain|3 Comments

One of the things I loved most about Marbella was the impossibly adorable Old Town or Old Quarter that lies at the heart of the city.

I knew there was an old part of the town, but I wasn’t quite prepared for it to be anything more than a couple of small streets. In reality it is an incredibly well preserved […]

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 […]

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.

La Palma is the […]

Alternative Cities to Visit in Europe

By |January 12th, 2015|Croatia, France, Scotland, Spain, Travel Tales|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 […]
