Barcelona was the greatest surprise I had during my holidays in Europe. I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t have huge expectations and Barcelona was never on my bucket list of cities to visit one day. However, Hubby is a crazy soccer fan and this was a must place to go for him. So, why not?

To my surprise, I simply loved the city. Barcelona is modern and charming, super busy and extremely cosmopolitan. For me, the high point was all the cuisine varieties you could find, from every single place in the world. They are also in the healthy food trend, so I mean can’t complain at all.

But this is not all, the city is beautiful, their architecture is unbelievable, I was always walking looking to the buildings and all that mix between old, fashion, and modern architecture.

I had 4 amazing days there, which I’ll be happily sharing with you now.
If you want to get straight to the point, here you can get my Google Maps with all the main attractions conveniently marked for you.

Day 1

Mercado de La Boqueria
In case you’re a foodie like me, this is THE place to be. Stroll along a good number of stalls featuring local products and produce.

Everything you can do on a day trip to Girone!

When I decided to go to Spain last year, I was sure I wanted to visit one of those Medieval Spanish cities. Then after some research, I found Girona, and for my surprise, this wasn’t any medieval city, THIS WAS THE CITY WHERE GAME OF THRONES WAS FILMED! Yep, all in caps so I make my message very clear. lol

If I’m not mistaken most of all season 6 was filmed there. You get scenes from Bravos, Oldtown and Kings Landing. It was fantastic to stroll through all the streets and lanes from this place and remember of scenes from the show. You can check here my Google Maps with the main spots, plus some extra historical sites that Girona has.

What we did then

Plaça de la Independència
Very pleasant space on your way to the Medieval city, with many restaurants and cafes around. Perfect for a quick coffee before you go and explore the city.

Cathay Pacific gluten free meal • Flight Sydney > HongKong > Rome

Posted on

In September last year, I had the opportunity to spend my holidays in Europe and it was fantastic! The only downside was the long flight from Sydney to Rome.

This time we decided to go via Cathay Pacific, and as I know some people are super curious (I’m one of them) to know what the airlines serve on their flights, I’ve decided to create this blog. This one is a very special one, as I got the Gluten Free special meal for all the way from Sydney to Rome!

Cathay Pacific flight from Sydney to Hong Kong – Gluten free meal

We departed from Sydney around lunchtime, so for this specific flight, we had two main meals: lunch and dinner.

Fish, with rice, salad and fruits.

Travel itinerary • Italy 🇮🇹

Posted on

This blog will be a summary of an unforgivable time I’ve spent in Italy in September last year. My idea is to list what I did on 6 full days passing by Rome, Naples, Florence, and Cinque Terre.

It was such a great time!!! I hope it will help you to sort out what to do in these cities in case you are short on time.

3 Days in Rome
Explore Rome in 2 full days and reserve an extra one to visit Naples and taste their delicious pizza!

1 Day in Naples

My favourite city in Italy so far. Explore Florence for 2 full days, and reserve the third day to visit Cinque Terre.

1 Day in Cinque Terre (link)
Either for sigh seen, or to go on an amazing hike, Cinque Terre is a must. In case you are in Florence, 1 full day is enough to get to know these five villages.

Everything you can do in 3 days in Florence!
A bird’s-eye view of everything you can do in 3 days in Florence!

Florence was the third city we stayed during our holidays in Europe, and I can honestly say it got a special place in my heart since the very first day.

Differently from Rome, I found the city much calmer, organised, easier to navigate around, and with a great modern vibe (even with all the historical buildings it has).

I had 3 amazing days there, which I’ll be happily sharing with you now.
