I've wanted to visit Lincoln for years because I have heard it is super pretty. Well my expectations were matched! It is very ideal for tourists who love exploring pretty, winding streets full of tea rooms, cafes, shops and pubs. The eye catching landmark is the Gothic cathedral. Found after hiking up the only steep [...]
After Seville we travelled to Cordoba nearby. We only stayed one night, as Cordoba is smaller than other cities to explore. Covering the city centre doesn't take long, but there is still enough to see to make it a worthwhile destination! The top thing to see in Cordoba is the mosque - cathedral. It is unique as [...]

So first up in my mini Barcelona series is the world famous La Sagrada Familia, a magnificent basilica designed by the renowned Antoni Gaudi. Its status as one of the most famous landmarks in the world is partly due to its incomplete state - current estimated year of completion is between 2026-32, and construction began [...]
The other day I walked all over the city centre with my camera, having fun as a shameless tourist. I took loads of photos, and so I decided that rather than one long post and expecting you lovely readers to sit patiently for all the photos to load, I would instead divide them into two [...]
In the plaza are a few restaurants which offer a fantastic view of Burgos's most iconic landmark. The cathedral towers above everything in the city, and can be spotted from many viewpoints in the centre. Inside is spectacular too!
