For quite some time, Spain has been firmly planted in my mind as a typical tourist destination centred around beaches and warm weather, with package holiday deals, probably due to the fact that these were the type of holidays I experienced when I was much younger. But my trip to Spain last year really opened my eyes […]

Curado Bar

If you love Spanish tapas, Curado Bar has been hailed as one of the restaurants to visit in Cardiff to satisfy your craving or get your fix. Just opposite the famous Principality Stadium on Guildhall Place, Curado Bar is in a prime spot to draw in both Cardiff visitors and the locals. I’ve tried to […]

As a busy metropolitan city which has attracted over 9million tourists since 2016, Barcelona is just bursting with different bars, restaurants and other eateries competing for your attention at every turn, all which have something very different to offer. Not only does this provide you with an incredible amount of food options but it also […]

Sagrada Familia

We landed in Barcelona midweek, flying directly from Seville after spending a few days in the city but despite the off-peak season and time of day, the airport was still packed full of arrivals, ready to explore the city. As a leading tourist, cultural and economic city centre and the capital of the Catalonia region, there is […]

Nest 23

If you haven’t heard yet, Cardiff’s High Street has recently welcomed a new bar addition as Nest 23 has opened its doors to the people of Cardiff to serve up your tipple of choice. With some wonderful neighbours including PennyRoyal and Gin and Juice, I was very excited to be invited to the launch of […]

Penarth Pier RM

January can be quite a challenging month. You’re probably a little bit on the skint side after Christmas and the January sales, the weather is pretty awful and the dark mornings are still very much a thing, meaning hibernation mode is incredibly tempting albeit, not always healthy. I’ve mentioned having issues with January Blues on […]

Milk & Sugar Windsor Place

If you haven’t yet heard of it, Milk & Sugar is an independent chain of cafes and coffee shops dotted around the heart of Cardiff’s city centre. With venues at Windsor Place, Capital Tower, Cardiff’s Old Library, One Central Square and most recently, Brunel House, Milk & Sugar is well and truly taking Cardiff by […]

I absolutely adore reading and it’s a hobby that I’ve enjoyed since I was very young, always searching for a new story or for new information. But I find that whenever I read, it will usually go between two extremes – either I can’t stop reading and will churn through a few books over a […]

You only have to walk down a side street in Seville to realise how many restaurants, tapas bars and bodegas that there are in this city. With this plethora of options, it can seem quite daunting and the possibility of stumbling into a less than average eatery is not desirable for anyone, especially when you’re […]

I can’t believe that we’re in 2018 already. Last year seemed to absolutely fly by but during that time, I was very lucky to have undertaken some incredible trips abroad including Paris, Rome, Seville and Barcelona. Yes, 2017 was pretty special for me but once again, I’m starting another year with some travel plans already […]
