Madrid: solo trip número tres!


I think November solo trips might become a regular thing for me. 
Last year, it was Lisbon and this year it was Madrid and Seville.

This summer was quite hectic with my job and even though I didn't plan to go on another solo trip this year following Paris, I felt I needed to rectify it.

Is Lanzarote worth a visit?

Not a bad view to wake up to...

Here in the UK, Lanzarote is sometimes known as 'Lanza-grotty' and having just returned from a family holiday there, I think it's quite harsh.

From London to Leeds.


Travel doesn’t always have to mean leaving your home country, right?

I’ve lived in London, England my whole life and realised that I’ve seen very little of the rest of the country. I’ve been to a few places, but not enough to take me out of the bubble that is my city.

My second solo trip: Disappointed in Paris

Maya and Eiffel Tower

Paris, France. Hailed as one of the most amazing cities in the world and somewhere you absolutely have to visit during your lifetime.

Having gone to Disneyland over a decade ago without venturing into the city, I felt I should check it out, so I chose it as the destination for my second solo trip. A decision which I kinda regret.

The Three La's of Barcelona

La Sagrada Familia
La Sagrada Familia in all its beauty...

These three La's frequently popped up when I was planning the itinerary for my trip to the Catalan city last April. Yes, it's great to go off the beaten track but there's some things that can't be missed...

Cabo da Roca: the edge of Europe

Cascais beach

November isn't one of my favourite months, mainly because it's always super cold in my city, so being on the beach in 19 degree weather was a welcome change.
