An Icelandic Adventure

blue_lagoon_1
I know it must seem like I’ve been away a lot recently but I promise you, that’s not the norm! We’ve had some special occasions to celebrate such as my birthday trip to New York, Matt’s birthday to Barcelona and most recently, our Anniversary trip to Iceland.
I’ve wanted to go to Iceland for a very long time and Matt had originally planned to take me in January for my Birthday but the Blue Lagoon was closed at that time so we went to New York instead (no complaints here!). So when it came to deciding what to do for our fifth anniversary, we decided to finally give Iceland a whirl. Five years felt special and like it should be celebrated. And so on the 11th of November, we boarded the plane to Iceland.

A Magical Woodland Hideaway at North Star Club

I love writing blog posts but you know when you get really excited to write a post? Yeah, that. That is just how I felt about pulling together the very contents of what you are reading now. I knew our stay at the North Star Club was going to be unique (my very favourite kind of UK getaway), but I had no idea just how much I was going to fall in love.

WHEN IN ROME – PART TWO

If you haven’t seen the first part of our trip to Rome, you can take a look here!

The streets of Rome are certainly something to behold. While it’s wonderful being able to visit the tourist attractions you hear about all the time, it’s even better to discover the parts you don’t get told about. It was important to Matt and I that we left time to just wander around and follow the streets wherever they might take us. Because that’s the beauty of Rome, I don’t think we came to a dead end once! We walked and walked, our chins often tilted up as we gazed at the beautiful buildings that were so common in Rome. There were restaurants aplenty, crammed down narrow cobbled streets while you were serenaded with music. It’s no wonder Rome is known as such a romantic city, it positively hung in the air. Couples with entwined fingers drank wine while it was common to see a proposal or two each day.

WHEN IN ROME – PART ONE

I appreciate it must not seem that long since I was telling you all about our trip to Barcelona but I am back with another travel post, but this time all about Rome! Again, it’s been split into two parts due to me not wanting a post you’ll have to scroll for days through.

Matt has wanted to go to Italy for quite a while, even going so far as attempting to teach himself some of the language. I’ve always heard great things and knew it was always going to be somewhere I would like to visit. So when we found we had the time and funds to go to Italy, the one struggle we had was exactly whereabouts. We darted between Florence, Venice, and Rome, each holding beautiful and distinguishing features that tempted us. We settled on Rome, simply because we knew exactly what it had to offer and everything slotted into place smoothly, the flights were perfect and the hotel looked divine.

A LONG WEEKEND IN BARCELONA PART 2

M1

So here we are for part two of my trip to Barcelona! If you missed the first part where I spoke about where we stayed and Sagrada Familia, you can check it out here. As I explained, there felt too much to put into one post so I’ve split into two for you. I’m going to continue this post with what else we got to on our little getaway.
