Gdansk was fun!
South Shields in summer
I spent my birthday in Dublin yesterday and had the best time. We bought hop on hop off bus tour tickets and was a great was to see the city’s main attractions and sights. This is the Samuel Beckett bridge in the shape of a harp, a symbol of Ireland!
I had wanted to go to Gibraltar for years and finally got to have a day trip whilst holidaying on Spain’s Costa Del Sol. The journey took about 2.5 hours from fuengirola by coach and we booked the excursions through the same tour operator. This included our own free time to explore along with guides up Gibraltar rock. We were taken to the lighthouse with views of Morocco 9 miles away and saw the monkeys at the top of the rock. Was a tiring day including all the travelling but definitely worth it.

I’d love to live in Spain. All the lovely white apartments and buildings look so lovely in the hills, especially when they’ve got the beautiful coastline nearby.
A warm February afternoon in the Barcelona hills
The beautifully landscaped gardens in Mexico, every day I’d see the gardeners looking after the gardens in the hotel. Was lovely to float around them on the lazy river
Parc Güell is a lovely place to take a rest from the sun, if you look closely you can see the W hotel on Barceloneta beach!
My first trip to London. You can see from my face how excited I was. This is the outside of Kings Cross Tube Station. For tourists I’d highly recommend going to the help desk for guidance on what tickets to buy, we had a nightmare at the self service kiosks.
It took a very long wait and patience to be able to get a photo on the IAmsterdam sign without other tourists!
Whenever I go to Barcelona I always visit Diagonal Mar Centre Comercial. It’s packed with high street fashion stores including Primark, Zara, C&A and pull and bear. It’s also got a food court on the top floor, especially useful when you fancy a subway meatball marinara sub after a busy day shopping. It’s easily accessible by metro, the closest stop being on the yellow line at station “El Maresme”. And of course if you prefer more high end stores you can find the likes of Hugo Boss, Prada and Gucci on Passeig de Gràcia.
How huge is this river! The Danube cuts through Buda and Pest. When we arrived in November we enjoyed walking along the river side and across both sides via the numerous bridges. We loved seeing the huge parliament building lit up at night and reaching the heights on each side and enjoying the fantastic view. (Ps. It was very cold in November)
Is anyone else in Europe right now during the scorching heat wave? What an amazing summer we’ve had!!!
