I blog, but I'm not a blogger.

I hope I don't come across as a miserable biatch on here because I'm not, but some posts are less joyful than others and you've got to be honest. Though I promise to make this as cheerful as I can, hence this completely irrelevant photo. Yay summer!

I blog, but I'm not a "blogger."

I'm a very career-minded person. I always have been and I'm very happy to be working in a profession that I enjoy and see myself progressing in.

Blogging will - most likely - never be my job or a primary source of income, so it will never be a priority. I've read several posts on having a full-time job whilst having a consistent blog and if it's a breeze for you, then kudos. I guess I don't try hard enough.
I won't be setting my alarm 3 hours earlier to edit a post nor will I spend half of my lunch break trying to get the perfect shot of my prawn fried rice and lemon water.

It's not that I don't enjoy it because I do. I love writing and taking pictures and I have ideas for posts, but if I'm honest, I find reading and engaging with other blogs quite time-consuming and it feels like a chore at times.

It can be disheartening putting time and effort into a post only for it to have little to no engagement, but I know if I was more consistent, then that would increase. As I mentioned in my one year blogiversary post, I'm happy with the content I've put out and will hopefully have a new camera soon, so I will continue. Such is life.

Are you a "blogger" or someone who has a blog?

Barcelona Day 3: Bus Tours & Flamenco 💃🏾💃🏾

My third day consisted of...you guessed it...bus tours and flamenco!

Side note: It was also National Tea Day in the UK and being a Brit, I OBVIOUSLY started the day with a cuppa. Not that I don’t almost everyday anyway.

Going on a bus tour is one of the top recommended activities to do there and I can understand why. They’re a great way to see all the sights and travel around the city. 

We passed some of the major sights such as Park Güell, FC Barcelona, all the designer shops, the harbour, back to Montjüic and loads more that I didn't photograph!
The tour that we went on - Barcelona Bus Touristic - has three routes and can be used for a full day (or two) and you can hop-on and off whenever you like. 

During the planning stages of my itinerary, I booked most activities beforehand apart from flamenco as the prices were quite high and for only a short time. No trip to Spain is complete without it, so it was definitely something I wanted to see.

Luckily, there was a flamenco bar close by and the hostess approached and informed us of an upcoming show at a great deal, which we booked! 
Excuse the camera quality, I only had my phone...

It was amazing and it is an absolute must do in Barcelona (I’m sure I’ve said this on all my related posts but they’ve all been must-do’s!)
The day ended with paella and cocktails and whilst the piña colada was muy bien, the paella wasn't, which is disappointing as I love paella. Never mind.
