If you follow me on social media, you’ll know that I recently took a trip to Barcelona. This was my first proper visit to mainland Spain (I’m not counting the 4 days I spent at Portaventura World in April as we didn’t leave the theme park!) and my first Spanish holiday since 2001, so I was really excited to experience the culture and more importantly – the food.

Rachel had done a lot of research before we went and had picked out a number of places that she wanted to visit. Although I am a fussy eater, I can usually find something that I will enjoy on any menu, so I was happy to go anywhere and I know that I can trust her to make good decisions. View Post

We all know that I’m a fan of a UK city break – there’s nothing better than getting on a train and exploring a new city in your own country. You get to have time away from home and enjoy new surroundings but you don’t need to worry about exchanging currency, getting travel insurance or booking flights. Over the last few years I’ve had the chance to visit a number of different cities in the UK and I’ve put together my favourites. View Post

When I visited Portaventura World in Spain in April, I had the best time. I love theme parks and I’m not scared to go on any rides, so as you can imagine, I went on quite a few in the two days that we had exploring the park. We stayed onsite and had as well as our park passes, we also had fast passes thanks to 365 Tickets. We went on everything from the smallest kiddy rides, to Europe’s tallest and fastest ride and I’ve put together my five favourites.  View Post
