Barcelona is undisputedly one of the most visited cities in Europe and one with fascination of its own. And how could it be otherwise – with a combination of sunny weather, unique architecture, green hills and beaches, it’s the ideal touristic destination.
Although Spain has always been a very tempting destination for me because of the weather, culture and mentality, the urge for this holiday was actually from my family. My sister and my mum hopped on the plane from Sofia airport and I did the same from London Gatwick and the three of us met at Barcelona airport, thrilled to explore this wonderful city together.
Different people have different understanding and preferences on how they spend their holidays but in general we can be summarized in two types – people lounging by the pool, who enjoy relaxing on the beach, by the pool or at the spa with a cool drink and tasty snacks, actively relaxing both their body and mind, and explorers, who prosper in activities such as trekking mountains or taking cultural tours, who enrich their lives by experiencing more of the history, culture and natural surroundings. Regardless which one of the two categories you fit in, I invite you to embark on two interesting and fun journeys with me 🙂
I’ve been reading travel guides and admiring picturesque photos of distant places for years. Somehow in my mind I’ve always associated pure exoticness with islands.
I’ve been blessed to visit a magnificent island recently – Tenerife, one of the seven larger Canary Islands
and taking pride of being the largest, most populated and most visited of the Canaries. Part of an autonomous community of Spain located in the Atlantic Ocean, Tenerife is actually located closer to Africa ( 300km ) than to Spain ( 1,000km ).
It lies at the same latitude as the Sahara Desert, which explains its warm tropical climate with exotic vegetation including palms, cacti, aloe
In the season of holidays, I would like to share with you my experiences on a recent holiday to Scotland. In my mind I have always associated Scotland with lush green meadows, proud heroic people and enchanting castles. What I discovered proved those assumptions and much more.
The flight to Edinburgh from London Heathrow was about an hour and a half long.
After the pleasant evening flight, we landed to a very cold, windy weather.
It was late September but I would happily change my autumn trench coat to a winter jacket if I could. During the short drive to the hotel, I was staring out of the taxi window in the dark night to get my first impression of this prominent city.
In the end of October I was on autumn vacation in Bulgaria. As summer is usually the preferred time for travelling because of the tempting beaches and scorching sun, I have forgotten what autumn was like in Bulgaria.
We went for a short trip in North-Central Bulgaria with my sister, my mum and her colleagues.
I love those trips with family as they make me feel child again and that’s such a precious feeling.
