Road trip itinerary for southern Spain

In my opinion there’s nothing better than a road trip. I love waking up without a plan other than which direction you’re going to drive in, pulling off the main road when you see something interesting, or spending a day driving the backroads where you might come across a cute cafe, a gorgeous view or, if you’re in Canada, some of the best beef jerky you’ve ever tasted being sold on the side of the ...

How to take a day trip to Gibraltar from Spain & what to do there

Whilst on holiday in Almuñécar, southern Spain, we decided to take a break from the beach for a day and make a day trip to Gibraltar.

Cycling in Mallorca

As much as I love exploring a city on foot, sometimes it's nice to pick the pace up a little bit and see more of your destination. I'm not talking about running - don't be crazy- but, rather, cycling! A cycle ride (especially when there's not too many hills) can actually beuite relaxing.

Driving the Camino de Santiago. A Northern Spain Road Trip Itinerary

Northern Spain seems to be having a bit of a moment currently. I can't count on both my hands how many people I know of who have been in the past few months. I wasn't aware of this when we booked flights to Santander earlier this year to celebrate the boyfriends birthday; we just booked the flights as they were cheap and the beaches looked nice. It was only when I started doing research into ...
