Top 10 things to do in Barcelona

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I just love Barcelona along side New York! I've been a number of times to Barcelona for different reasons, but each time I've found something new to see and to do. It's got a fantastic arts scene, stunning architecture, beaches, great food, one of the globes biggest football teams, some great hotels and restaurants. With it being one of the most visited cities for couples in Europe you really have to make use of the time in the city. What do I think are the Top 10 things to do in Barcelona is? Well read on!!

Hotel Indigo Stratford Upon Avon Review

Anyone who's read my blog elsewhere know's that I love a good Hotel Indigo. So when a work trip to Stratford Upon Avon came up this week and I saw an Indigo on offer. Why not?! What I didn't know was quite how good the Hotel Indigo Stratford Upon Avon was going to be. Now when I say the statement that it was the best hotel that I've stayed in ever that might sound dramatic. But here's the thing. Yes of course if you stay in a £1k a night hotel I'm sure that it would be better. However for £160 a night? Genuinely this is the best hotel I've ever stayed in! Let's start with the simple things -…

Hidden London – Down Street Tube Station

Millions of travellers daily use the London tube network. What millions of travellers perhaps don't realise is the many different tunnels, dissused stations, branch lines and other bit's and pieces of the network still exist.

Africa is the birthplace of humankind. But how many of us have already been to Africa? It's always been on my bucket list to go on a Safari! It's about as far away from other places on my bucket list that are ticked off like New York. The truth is that it is a HUGE continent with a variety of countries and cultures that are worth exploring and discovering. Where did our ancestors come from? It’s an impossible question to answer. While the latest scientific research indicates that modern human life started in South Africa, there is so much more to see in this rich and varied continent.  If you are ready to take a trip through the history of…

Hotel Indigo London Kensington

I hit the big 40 and my other half planned me a great 72 hours away to enjoy it. The first stop on this stay was at the Hotel Indigo London - Kensington. I'm a big fan of the IHG Chains of hotels. Holiday Inn and the Holiday Inn express are my favourites when out on the road. "Most" of the time you know what you are going to get and frankly that's all you need and want when travelling with business. However slightly less known in the IHG brand is the Hotel Indigo chain. These are fewer in their number in the UK but I love them for their styling and that they don't conform the usual standard hotel…
