Time for another solo getaway! After such a successful trip to Barcelona and Madrid last May, I was itching to get back to Spain and discover more. My favourite hostel chain, Hostel One, has hostels in Seville so I chose to start there. I was craving some beach vibes too, so the next stop planned… Continue reading Solo In Spain: Visiting Seville & Valencia
In an effort to use up my remaining holiday allowance of 2016 and to finally tick off a city I’ve been itching to visit, I booked a last minute trip to Edinburgh, Scotland. It would be my first solo trip since my month long adventure back in May!
2016 has surprised me, as I never imagined it could top 2015. This has been a year of adventure, growth, and turning lifelong dreams into a reality.

I have to admit, I didn’t see a great deal of touristy things in Madrid. Since I extended my stay in Barcelona, I lost two nights in the city. I have no regrets with that decision, but having been so in love with Barcelona, it also left me a bit underwhelmed with Madrid. That being said, I… Continue reading 3 Days in Madrid
