I've recently returned from a relaxing and chilled week in the Canary Island of Gran Canaria. My usual island of choice in this area is Tenerife, an island that holds a special place in my heart. However, upon insistence from family that we should go somewhere else for a holiday, we went for something completely… Continue reading Postcards from…Gran Canaria
Tucked away in the quiet and luxurious resort of Melonaras in the south of Gran Canaria, after 25 minutes in the taxi I had arrived. If first impressions are anything to go by, this enormous hotel was definitely going to be different than anywhere else I'd stayed before.I'd read a lot of reviews when researching… Continue reading Lopesan Baobab, Gran Canaria
The last time I ventured overseas for a week of relaxation was September 2014. While I've worked hard and been lucky to have a couple of breaks overseas since, it's been far too long since I spent the day doing nothing by the pool. And I really enjoy lazying by the pool doing nothing. And… Continue reading Tenerife | Sun, Sea And Total Relaxation
On our recent trip to Palma, we wanted the best of both worlds - interesting city break and lazy days lounging by the pool. I thought it was a bit ambitious, and didn’t hold much hope of finding an affordable hotel in a great location with a pool. But then I stumbled upon TRYP Palma… Continue reading TRYP Palma Bellver, Palma
When I was planning a trip Palma, images of sunshine, cocktails, tapas and amazing churches sprang to mind. Not once did it occur to me that there would be amazing sculptures dotted around the city. But the city is in fact brimming with loads of great sculptures around every corner, as well as other types… Continue reading Taste of Palma: Street Art
I have the worst memory, and one of the bonuses of taking a billion pictures when I go away is that I get to look through them later and remember the little things that happen. My trip to Barcelona was 3 years ago (where has the time gone?!), and as I was going through the… Continue reading Photo Friday: Birds in a Line
One of the big sights to see in Palma is the impressive Palma Cathedral. I love Palma, I love churches and I love everything Gaudi has turned his hand to, so I knew I was going to love Palma Cathedral! There was no way I could leave the city without a postcard of the stunning… Continue reading Postcard from…Palma Cathedral
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. The cathedral itself has a… Continue reading Postcard from…Gaudi
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 full on tourist and grabbed ourselves a couple of tickets for the hop on hop… Continue reading Palma | Bus tour fun and perfect endings!
Yesterday was expected to be a washout - heavy showers, thunderstorms, the lot! But while the thunder rumbled in the hills, there was only the odd shower throughout the day, meaning we had a bonus day to explore that the weather forecast had originally written off. Not wanting to push our luck, my boyfriend and… Continue reading Palma | Public baths, palaces and even more churches!
