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 [...]

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!
This beautiful music hall is lesser known than the architectural works of Gaudi, but was one of my favourite things I saw on my trip! Designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner in the famous Catalan modernism style, it was commissioned by the Orfeo Catala choir, who hold importance in Catalan culture for their music. Nowadays [...]
A famous street in Barcelona is La Rambla- full of shops, tourists and pickpockets. However to the side of it is also La Boqueria market: a food market that sells delicious, quality goods (for a hefty price!). Despite the crowds it is definitely worth navigating your way around, even if it is just to look [...]
