Tarragona

Another weekend, another beach day! I swear I do my studying during the week, so I have the weekend to enjoy myself and the increasingly brilliant weather here in Catalonia. This past weekend we travelled 1 1/2 hours by train to Tarragona (about 16/17 euros return from Barcelona). Trains are not very frequent compared to Sitges so [...]

Sitges

Now the weather is much improving in already sunny Spain, friends and myself decided to take a day trip to the nearby town of Sitges, only a 30 minute train journey from Barcelona, less than 10 euros return. Sitges is incredibly popular for carnival, possibly due to the fact it is a great place for [...]

Geneva, Switzerland

When a friend asked me if I wanted to accompany her to a weekend in Geneva, how could I say no? I had never been before but I had been told Switzerland is insanely beautiful. So the day after we got back from Sevilla we met again in the airport, for a new adventure. Although cold enough [...]

Parc Guell Revisited

I did a post on Parc Guell a while back when I visited Barcelona for the first time. This time around a friend and I went to take pictures, because he had just bought himself a new camera, and I'm glad to have friends who are also into photography. We missed out the section you have to [...]

And one of the best parts [...]

To kick off this week that is celebrated by polaroid enthusiasts and companies all around the world, Impossible Project Barcelona hosted a workshop for people to listen to tips given by an expert, and to have fun taking photos and receiving feedback. All for 20 euros, which was the price of the pack [...]

Ribblehead Viaduct

Found in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales is this Victorian viaduct that is a popular local landmark for visitors to admire. It is close to the Three Yorkshire Peaks, which is a challenging hike of three mountains to complete in one day (or in your own time), so finding muddy and weary hikers is common, and [...]

Lincoln Cathedral

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 [...]
