Costa Dorada, unwrapped.

When I think about Catalonia, I instinctively land in Barcelona; the land of Gaudí, street festivals and, of course, football.  But just 100km southwest of Barcelona, the Costa Dorada is a strip of Mediterranean coastline best known for its calm, shallow waters, and golden sandy beaches. It’s not a destination I’d had on my radar before Jet2 invited me to visit but, having spent five wonderful days exploring so much of what the region has to offer, I can now

Beyond the Old Town.

Prague. A romantic, fairytale city of higgledy-piggledy streets, spires and bridges. And a perfect destination for a mid-Winter city break!  After a wonderful press trip to Dubrovnik with Jet2 in 2022, I was eager to check out which European City Breaks were on offer with Jet2Holidays, since my first experience travelling with them had been so hassle-free and enjoyable. They have plenty of fantastic destinations you can fly to direct from Manchester (our local airport), including Barcelona, Berlin and Cologne, but

A modern guide to Old Guatemala.

I can’t believe it’s taken me over a year since returning from our epic trip around Guatemala to begin compiling content from it!  Truth be told, the start to 2022 wasn’t quite what I’d envisioned; being quarantined for 10 days in an ensuite bedroom with my boyfriend, having tested positive for Covid (while not experiencing many symptoms) and having to rearrange our flights home to a fortnight later. When we eventually touched down on UK soil it was all stations

Discover the Dubrovnik Riviera.

I’ve long had the Dalmation Coast of Croatia on my bucket list for a summer holiday spent island-hopping across the Adriatic on a catamaran. Less on my radar – until now – was a trip to explore the Croatian mainland; namely, the Dubrovnik Riviera.At the southern tip of Croatia’s long coastline, Dubrovnik has long been known as the Pearl of the Adriatic, and offers a wonderful combination of culture, heritage and natural beauty – which makes it a fantastic destination

Memories of Marrakech.

Marrakech has been on my list of places to visit for what feels like a lifetime. Long before my first trip to Morocco, where I visited Rabat and Casablanca in the North, and my second visiting Tangiers and Asilah, I knew one day I was destined to wander the winding dusty red-tinted alleys of the jewel of Morocco – and in early February, I finally did! It’s taken me much longer than I thought it would to compile this post.
