Sometimes, when travelling, I miss the home comforts like spending a morning lounging on the sofa in front of the TV or cooking myself a tasty meal. Renting an apartment or home rather than staying in a hotel allows me to have a home away from home.
Portugal is one of my favourite countries in Europe. The Algarve area on the south coast is nothing short of stunning; with it’s deep blue water, gorgeous sandy beaches and incredible rock formations, this is one place that needs to be added to your bucket list.
Last week we were lucky enough to be invited to try something new by Eatwith (eatwith.com). I’m always up for a great experience and The Best of Catalan Gastronomy on a Sailing Boat with Patricia was definitely that. We enjoyed dinner on a boat in Barcelona hosted by a lovely local couple and were joined by another couple from Atlanta. Fast forward to amazing food, a fantastic evening and new friends – Eatwith is something that anyone and everyone should try!
If you haven’t considered Cappadocia as your next holiday destination then my aim with this blog post is to change your mind. Words can’t even describe the beauty of the place and the feelings I have been left with after visiting but I’ll try my best to put as much down as possible.
What do you think of when someone mentions Prague? I’d imagine a fair few people would instantly be reminded of groups of drunk 20-something year old men celebrating their last days of freedom before they get hitched, right? Bachelor parties and stag dos filling the streets? I’m here to change your mind and hopefully persuade you that there’s so much more to this city than beer bikes and blokes.
It’s funny how something can happen in your life that completely changes your direction. I’m a firm believer in the idea that everything happens for a reason. My journey has led me down a new, more challenging and less certain route but it’s made me more determined to achieve things that I’ve always dreamed of.
