WARM GREETINGS!

Wednesday, September 24, 2014
























































Hey!

I haven't had a chance to do an outfit post on my blog for ages. Alas, I borrowed my sisters clothes and viola! haha I don't know about you guys but, when traveling you get really sick of your clothes and the baggage limits on flights, limit what you can buy. So, I've been repeating my outfits a lot.

Anyway, this was taken on a really pretty day in Gdansk. This place is a really special area to me and my family (read about it here). I can't tell you guys what I'm wearing because, I don't know the brands but, I found some similar items and provided them below. :-)

At the moment, I'm in Budapest and it's really nice here. I can't wait to shoot something in this beautiful city.

Hope you're all doing well!

SNAPS FROM PALMA DE MALLORCA

Friday, September 12, 2014

















Where do I start when explaining Palma de Mallorca? It’s such a beautiful island and a perfect place for Adrian to enjoy his birthday. 


We arrived at our beautiful hotel, the Hm Balanguera. It’s a bit outside the city centre but a perfect hotel that allowed us to relax after huge days of sightseeing and non-stop travel.

Again, we hired bikes to get around Mallorca, because we loved riding so much in Valencia. On our first day, we relaxed by the hotel’s rooftop pool, sipping cool drinks and jumping into the crystal clear water. It felt like paradise, because it was! That night, we hired our bikes and rode to the Cathedral at night and walked around the old part of Palma. Entering old book shops and eating ice-cream in quiet streets.

On Adrian’s birthday, we decided to ride about 5km outside of Palma de Mallorca to Cala Major beach (see picture 3). After about an hour riding/walking and complaining up the steepest hill ever and taking a wrong turn, we were both greeted with the best view! (see picture 2) We even decided to go back to the beach in the evening to take more photos (after realising there was a bike path along the port which cut about 30 minutes off the first ride we took).






























The whole trip to Palma de Mallorca was so relaxing, even though we were riding again. We got to see parts of Palma that we couldn’t have if we didn’t hire out the bikes.

Hope you're all well and enjoying these quick posts!

SNAPS FROM VALENCIA

Wednesday, September 10, 2014


































In Valencia, we stayed at this great place we found on AirBnB, it was a perfect location and the people were super friendly!
After the organised the bikes we went to ride down towards the beach. We rode into the park and followed that the whole way. We then went riding along the port and eventually onto the promenade. After seeing the beach we headed back home and went to get ready for dinner. We had dinner at this cute burger place called Onion Burger Studio. The food was delicious although, the only thing we found was that the fries were really salty!



On the first day Adrian and I went on the hunt to find some cheap bike hire. We came across this great bike shop called Valencia Luxury Bikes and my bike was only 11EURO for 24 hours! 
We rode around everywhere and it was perfect; Valencia is such a bike friendly place. 


































We only really had two days in Valencia and we spent them riding our bikes through the parks and small, narrow streets. Gazing up every now and then to capture the beautiful buildings that surrounded us. 

The next day, we jumped on the bikes again and went around the town to see some sights. We tried our first Horchata at Daniels inside the Market.  We rode down toward the Torres de Serranos and heaps of other places.  Adrian and I decided to have a casual day riding through the town centre which was great, because when we got lost in the small streets we found a great bar to park our bikes at and enjoy a cool beverage.

SNAPS FROM BARCELONA

HOLA FROM SPAIN!

Our first stop on this European holiday is Spain and if you've been following my instagram you would have noticed that we're no longer in Barcelona, but traveling around. We decided to make a holiday out of a very special occasion for my family; my twin sister is getting married over the weekend! I will do a very special post about that in due time. ;-)

I thought I'd share some happy snaps from our first day in Barcelona. We managed to do and see more than I thought we would. 
We stayed at this amazing place from Air BnB (the first couple photos), which was about a 15 minute walk to La Ramblas and then a bit further away from the park/zoo. Although, it gave us the chance to see more of Barcelona. 

After wandering around the market of La Ramblas and getting lost in the small side streets, we found this great cocktail and tapas bar called Ocana. I ordered a passionfruit mojito and I don't think anything else will beat this drink... ever. 

Anyway! Thought I'd share these with you and I'll post something a bit more substantial soon!
