Nearly a year ago I wrote this post about travel destinations I am super keen to visit. I have visited zero of them (whoops), but they are still my top destinations I am determined to visit in my life. However some of these are still quite fanciful, due to money/time/difficulty to make the trip. So I also have [...]
The Alhambra in Granada is one of the must see places if you ever visit the beautiful city. The Moorish influence of Spain is more prominent in the southern regions of the country than the north, and the Alhambra is an amazing example of this rich heritage. Except tickets are in high demand, and [...]
Seville is a beautiful city in the Andalusian region of Spain, and the cathedral is a magnificent building! The day I took this was glorious and blue, but the use of expired film created a vintage effect that is no less beautiful.
I didn't take many photos of the weekend I spent in Madrid, but this was my favourite. I also liked how the black and white edit came out when I was messing around with the photo on Instagram. Couldn't decide which I preferred so here, have both 😉
Last Friday I was packing last minute to spend the long weekend away, Santander being the first of two cities I would visit. I was full of the flu, and raging because I couldn't find my jeggings. However I had wanted to visit Santander since I first arrived in Spain, so I was looking forward [...]
On an unusually sunny and warm (!!!) January day in Burgos, I went with friends to a local Monastario. A translation would be a convent, as it is where nuns live (around 150 in its prime, nowadays around 30 nuns live here). A Monastario can either be for monks or nuns, but obviously not both [...]
Hola! This Saturday just gone consisted of a last minute booking to spend the day in Bilbao with fellow English teachers in Burgos. Bilbao is the capital of the Basque country in the north of Spain - an area filled with it's own unique cultural heritage. One prominent example is the Basque language - very [...]
Travelling...tourism... each suggest two very different aspects of going on holiday, but can also be incredibly similar. What actually is the difference? Travellers make me think of backpackers with a checklist of countries in their mind, whereas tourists make me think of families on holiday. But the lines cross when you go on holiday with [...]
Whilst La Sagrada Familia is such an internationally recognisable landmark - it might be easy to overlook the Neo Gothic Cathedral residing in the old town in Barcelona. It is also a must see attraction, with free entry! I adored the architectural design of the outside and of the interior. Here lies the tomb of Saint [...]
On Fridays and Saturday evenings, outside the National Art Gallery the fountain provides a show of colour and song every half an hour. Many people gather to watch the spectacle, and I had good fun trying to get some magical shots on my camera! I think the first and last are my favourite!
