10 Reasons to Visit Cornwall

Hey all,

Before moving to St. Ives over 8 years ago, I had been going to Cornwall for holidays for over 10 years with my family.

Including Bude, Polzeath and Padstow, we have been all over Cornwall as a family. By far, our Cornish holidays will always be my favourite type. We made tons of memories including treasure hunts, boat trips and attempting to surf.

St. Ives has been named as the top resort in the UK and its not hard to see why.

So here are 10 reasons why you need to visit Cornwall, not that you need any!

MY PLACEMENT ABROAD STORY: Highlights, Regrets and Moving Home.

Hi guys,

I am late posting because it has taken me and still taking me a while to settle back into UK life. This post is a sentimental one and hopefully useful for anyone going on a placement abroad.

My placement abroad journey started 4 years ago, it was when I was going to university open days and asking my one and only question, anything related about the placement abroad we get in 3rd year.

Now I have completed my placement abroad, I wanted to write about the highlights, regrets and any advice for students who are thinking about doing a year abroad or those who are about to go on their placement year.

So far, I haven't cried... yet. So I hope you enjoy, find it fun, interesting and hopefully useful.

Best views of Barcelona: Bunkers del Carmel

Hello,

The way I said that "hello" in my head as I typed it, was the least enthusiastic "hello" EVER.

I love blogging and writing posts, because I love to document and keep memories of my travels and day to day life. However, today is a sad day.

This is my last blog post as a resident of Barcelona. I have had the privilege to call this fantastic city my home and do things I never thought I would. I am not going to ramble on, because this will be another post.

So I thought it was very fitting to dedicate this post to the beauty of the city, especially the Bunkers del Carmel.

If you want to see Barcelona, in all it's glory. The Bunkers will give you the best views ever.

So, I hope you all enjoy my final post as a Barcelona resident, I sure am very emotional writing this. God help me when I get on the plane home! Going to be a mess...

Someone, hand me a Sangria!

Nightlife in Barcelona: The Ice Bar

Hey all,

This past week has been so hot in Barcelona, so as the heatwave takes over, what a better way to cool down than to write about something freezing cold!

Back in my previous post - Nightlife in Barcelona, I mentioned The Ice Bar. I hadn't been there before, but I really wanted to go before I moved back to England.

It is a different experience to all the clubs in this beautiful city, it certainly gives the nightlife in Barcelona some good competition.

I was very grateful and lucky to be sent 2 entry and drink tickets from the company and couldn't wait to use it.

I must pre-warn you, they aren't the best quality photos I have taken. HOWEVER, you try taking a picture in -13 degree Celsius with no gloves because you can't press the button! It is very hard!

Eat in Rome Cheap: La Romana

Here she goes again...

She is talking about food again. Yes, I am not afraid to share that I am a massive foodie. Since being off of work, all I do is find these incredible restaurants in Barcelona.. I actually found one yesterday!

However, I promise you guys that this post is different, because I will be telling you where to eat in Rome! It has been 2 months since my trip and after numerous contact with the hostel and reminiscing on my trip, it was time to write another post.

Obviously, people go to Rome to do many things, and that includes eating. Pasta, pizza and gelato... the 3 main foods that represent Italy. I must admit, I thought the pizza would be the best food in Rome... I was very wrong.

I am a girl on a budget but like food that is good quality. Which is why this place is so special.

It is all about gelato, especially from La Romana. There are always places where people queue for food and I find it very over-rated. La Romana is different, I never wait for food, and I waited 20 minutes outside for their ice-cream.

So if you want to know more, you know what to do...

Where to eat in Barcelona: The Coconut Club

Oh my god...

I feel like I haven't stopped even though I left my job nearly two months ago. I went to Rome, had my sister round then my friend from Australia and another from England.

My diet has gone out the window and so has my blogging. I also feel that I should have been a food/travel blogger the amount I eat and ideas I have for the blog.

As the title suggests, this post is about one of my new favourite restaurants in Barcelona that I haven't mentioned before. The Coconut Club is located right on the beach front by all the clubs and is so different from any restaurant in Barcelona.

It is a Caribbean style restaurant, with the most diverse menu choice I have ever seen. In Barcelona, you will find a lot of Tapas Buffet, Seafood and Tourist Trap Restaurants. There is honestly nothing like The Coconut Club.

Want to know more? Keep reading...
