After conquering, “Europe’s tallest and fastest“,  I went on just one ride before getting distracted by the wine bar aptly located right next to the ride. This was not something I expected to see here at all. Seeing as we’d already had a couple of beers so far, we grabbed a couple of glasses of … Continue Reading

Up until a few weeks ago, I had never heard of PortAventura. Lloyd, on the other hand had (apparently a friend had visited recently and told him all about it) so when we decided to go to PortAventura for a party, I had no idea what to expect. 😀 . Now, the reason why you … Continue Reading

Last year, we went to Spain at least once every month. The same thing carried on this year and even when I think about it it, I think for the latter half of two years ago, we did exactly the same thing. Not even sure how it happened, there just always seems to be a … Continue Reading

The Canary Islands have always been a firm favourite to visit. Perched off the coast of north-west Africa, these Spanish islands are just too beautiful to miss. Full disclosure, I really have to be honest, It never felt like ‘my cup of tea’ and for so many years I kind of resigned the Canary Islands to the back of my … Continue Reading

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

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
