Ben Lawers with Rabbie’s Tours

January 2018 One of my happiest and coldest memories in Scotland <3 As part of the Green Team at Rabbie’s Tours, we took a day to visit the trees that were planted by the Rabbie’s’ crew a few years back. Shame I don’t have the picture of the lovely pies we had at Mhor Bread […]

A quick escape to Naples and Sorrento

Two weeks in Garda

Two weeks in Garda I have been pretty quiet in the last few weeks as I was busy spending time with family and friends back home in Garda, Lake Garda. What a place to call home, I will never get tired to say it! 🙂 Where is Garda? Garda is a town of 4000 inhabitants […]

Venezuelan food in Barcelona

Venezuelan food in Barcelona is abundant and something we did not have while living in Edinburgh. Today Ba and I were supposed to get married in Edinburgh, the city we met and lived together for a decade before moving to Barcelona last year. In order to celebrate our non-wedding day (a bit like your non-birthday […]

Travelling and packing light Travel gear doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive, however there are a few tricks that are good to consider. If there’s one piece of advice I would give to any traveller is to pack light, most specifically pack one small backpack. You don’t need more! Thanks to laundries. Honestly, the […]

Best things to do in Barcelona
