As you may have seen on social media, and from my previous post (here), last month I headed to another new country and visited the Norwegian capital, Oslo.
Dublin is definitely worth a visit and, with connections to most of the UK courtesy of Ryanair, a day trip can easily be made worthwhile. I’ll definitely be heading back in the near future and can’t wait to learn more about the fabulous city.
Back in August we decided to take a trip to York to celebrate my birthday and agreed we’d spend some time looking around the city itself before heading to the National Railway Museum (NRM) for the afternoon. This post is going to look at the NRM itself, however you'll soon be able to read about York itself on Beth’s blog and my review of our journey to York here. The review of our eventful journey home will be coming soon on the blog!
After brilliant but long day on my first full day in Madrid, I woke slightly later than planned on my second and so moved fairly quickly to ensure I could fit as many adventures as possible into the day. My first stop was the Neptune Fountain that the walking tour had finished near which is also the starting point for the City Tour Madrid sightseeing buses. I had been in two minds as to whether to bother with the bus tours, however after all the walking the previous day I decided to see the city from a seated position!
Having arrived at Madrid following a great flight with British Airways, I headed through the terminal to make my way into the city itself.
A couple of years ago, we went on a winter break to Barcelona and fell in love with the beautiful Spanish city. We were there for 5 days and managed to cram in SO much, there is truly a wealth of things to do for all different tastes but these were the 5 things I most enjoyed, although it has been really hard to choose and I will list some of the other places we visited at the end of the post.
