When we went rowing around Menorca, I remember one of the guys saying something about a hidden club in the caves and the idea of that just seemed so ridiculous (and so “Alibaba and the 40 thieves”-esque) that I thought it was just some kind of urban legend/fable and dismissed it entirely. Turns out it wasn’t… … Continue Reading

I’ve never sailed a boat before. I’ve been on a boat sailed by someone else, I’ve even gotten very very tipsy on many a boat but never gotten round to sailing it. When we got up on this very morning in Menorca, rain clouds standing guard and ready to pour open at any minute, it … Continue Reading

Mahon is the capital city of Menorca and it’s one of its prettiest! (Albeit, perhaps even more so in the sunshine). We visited late in the evening  when the skies had turned a bit grey (thankfully, we had sunshine in the afternoon for our boat ride) but the greys didn’t take away from the city’s charm … Continue Reading

After our big lunch down by the seaside, I was in no shape for any exercise whatsoever and so off we went on a more of a laidback jaunt around Menorca – this time on a boat, leaving from the port of Mahon (the capital city of Menorca). Now I realise, reading this title back … Continue Reading

After a busy lazy day in the Ciutadella (and have worked up quite the appetite), we headed over to Café Balear by the harbour, where we would be having dinner. Now Café Balear is one of the most popular restaurants in Menorca. Apparently, in the height of summer, it’s near impossible to get a table … Continue Reading

We arrived into Menorca from London late at night… due to which, I never actually got to see any of the island on the drive to our hotel and so, with very little expectations (or ideas of what to expected) we just went straight for dinner at our hotel (the brilliant Hotel Artiem Audax) and pretty … Continue Reading

We arrived into Generalife absolutely panting after running all the way from the Alhambra! With our flights to catch in a few hours and palace entry closing in less than an hour, speed was of the essence! Thankfully, Generalife is so much smaller than the Alhambra and so after a short walk through the elaborate … Continue Reading

Leaving the beautiful city of Ronda, there was one place on our visit to Southern Spain that I knew we had to find a way to fit into our travel plans and that place was The Alhambra. For ages I’d been obsessed with The Alhambra and when I knew we’d be near enough to drive … Continue Reading

Before all the jam-packed action in Tokyo and Seoul (…I’ve still got so much to tell you about that trip), we actually started off with a few days in Bilbao. Now Bilbao is a place we’ve only ever visited for the airport alone (it’s the gateway to the Spanish Basque Country) and so we decided … Continue Reading
