Alhambra is a palace in Spain and it is truly magnificent. Being centuries-old, having its origins back in 889, it’s an amazing piece of architecture. As you can imagine, of course, it is now a UNESCO World Heritage site (and rightly so) and a source of inspiration and awe for visitors to Spain from all … Continue Reading

Following on from our (not so) Olympic standard pool diving, our fatigue eventually caught up with us and we all ended up having naps in the sun…until the sun went down and the first of us started to stir. We quickly popped some clothes on and headed out for dinner and drinks. For some reason, … Continue Reading

Thinking about it now, I have no idea how we managed to stay energetic after arriving in Ibiza. We’d all had about 2 hours sleep (I had just 1 hour due to my last minute packing) before hoping into the taxi to take us to the airport. Honestly, I don’t even know why we tried … Continue Reading

And boy was it something of a revelation! When we visited Gipuzkoa in the Basque Country (in Spain), I had lots of different expectations – that the people would be friendly (this is a popular and rather well known fact), that the language would be dramatically different from Spanish, that the weather would be great… … Continue Reading

On a fairly random evening, my friends and I decided (now that I think about it) rather spontaneously to book a trip to Ibiza. In fact, I think we booked the trip first and then started to rationalise why we wanted to go away after. “Oh it’s so and so’s birthday so we could use … Continue Reading

Yup! It’s that time of the week/month again! New Video Time! Our YouTube Channel has just been updated with THE FULL VIDEO of our time in the Basque Country. Complete with (awkward) voice-over by me! Check it out and let me know what you think.      

Following an amazing night’s sleep at Hotel Torre Zumeltzegi (the Count’s home now converted to a hotel), I woke up to this rather mystical looking sight below, which by the way, works better than any cup of caffeine when it comes to making you awake and ready to face the day but first things first – pigging … Continue Reading

I feel like it’s a safe assumption to make that you already know by now that we spent a rather long weekend in Gipuzkoa (which is in the Spanish Basque Country). There is a lot to tell you and so as you can imagine, this is a picture heavy post but I feel this is … Continue Reading

One of the biggest things I learnt this past weekend visiting Gipuzkoa is that the Basque language is very different from Spanish (or indeed French). I’d been to Spain quite a few times in the past and so I assumed that I would be able to throw around all the Spanish phrases I’d learned (which … Continue Reading

See what I did there? Hehehe! 😉 🙂 🙂 Right, so this has been kept under wraps for too long and I can’t hold out on you longer! We’ve got some exciting news!!! We’ve been invited to explore the Basque Country in Spain, more specifically, the province of Gipuzkoa over the next few days! And … Continue Reading

My friend had been saying for months (almost a whole year actually) that she wanted to celebrate her birthday somewhere outside of the UK and as amazing as the idea was, the process of organising flights and accommodation for even 4 people is daunting to me at the best of times let alone organising for a … Continue Reading

Spain is a totally stunning country to explore! It’s the kind of place that’s filled with incredible beaches, beautiful wine regions and the best cities in Spain that are dotted all over the country. In fact, I’d go as far as saying that Spain’s cities are some of my favourite in Europe! They all have … Continue Reading

Like I was gonna forget to do a post about the amazing food in Ibiza! 🙂 #FoodieDiaries First off we got the squid! #CookedToPerfection! Then some tasty lamb chops! Paella to share! Some aperitifs for after the meal.. But not before some grilled garlic king prawns Rounded up with a huge steak. We ate and … Continue Reading

There’s just so much more to Ibiza than partying. Alas, most people never seem to realise this until they visit the beautiful island of Ibiza for the first time on holiday themselves. When my friends and I booked a trip to Ibiza – which happened to coincide with my birthday and Ibiza’s reputation as a … Continue Reading
