Christ Church, Dublin.

Just a short walk off this Irish highstreet and you’ll find this cathedral on the corner. Not inconspicuous in the slightest as the steeples can be seen from far. Somewhat grey and gloomy on the outside but the inside is far from it. With a beautiful pathway down the centre, be sure to take a…

Vaticano

A grey, rainy day in December, we found ourselves roaming Rome. Multiple umbrellas later (p.s do not buy the umbrellas from the guys on the streets; they break within minutes!!!) Jason and I arrived at the Vatican museum. There infront of you stands the Vatican and St.Peters Basilica. An amazing sight to be seen whether…

European Food Picks

1. When in Rome, eat at Etabli.  Found inside a 15th century building, this antique looking place seats more than you envision.  A few steps from Piazza Navona, you have the choice of hot beverages, food, wine or even cocktails; just depending on what time you’re there.  The bar lounge is open from 6pm-2am but the…

Doors of Dublin

Now a well established visual attraction that draws tourists to the Merrion Square area of Dublin to see the vibrant doors that are portals to the old Georgian buildings.  They create a sense of curiosity to find more of them throughout this colourful city.  Although this collection of photographs that I took are just a…

Sagrada Familia

Not your typical church. The architecture is insanely stunning and the stain glass is just mesmerising when the light hits it. Be amazed at the architect; Antoni Gaudi’s work. He literally transformed his ideas in an extremely tall building in the heart of Barcelona, Spain. Gaudi was to have said that colour was the expression…

Palau de la Musica Catalana

Funny story upon entering Palau de la Musica Catalana.   My husband and I arrived into Barcelona El-Prat airport mid morning (December 2017) and from there we took the train towards Sants station where our hotel for the night was about a ten minute walk.  Thinking we had time, we decided to take a nice stroll…

One day in Amsterdam

My husband Jason turned 40 this year (2017).  I don’t know what it was but I had the idea to visit four major cities in four different countries. 4 for 40, get it?  I went back and forth and finally came to a decision of four European places to visit.  I am British (and Italian)…

Temple Bar

Arriving late into Dublin, despite it raining, Jason and I decided to talk a walk into the city.  Our hotel was only 5 minutes walk over the Ha Penny Bridge and with it being a Friday night, why not delve into the bar life to see what Dublin is all about.  Our first point of…

Rojales Cuevas

Rojales Cuevas are situated near a small town called Rojales.  Rojales is a small Spanish town close to Benijofar, Ciudad Quesada, Almoradi and Torrevieja which is situated in Alicante if you haven’t been able to visit Spain before.  The caves are high up on the hillside above everything.  You have an amazing view over the top…
