Porto, Portugal

To celebrate the end of exams and undergrad (what…im not a student anymore!!?!), I travelled with my friend to Portugal where we visited Porto and Lisbon. With its low prices, amazing food, and beautiful architecture, Portugal was definitely one of my favourite places to visit from Spain.   Our first two nights in Portugal were…

Rome, Italy

We took a bus from Florence and arrived in Rome in the evening. The bus was almost two hours late so the only thing we really had time for was dinner. My first meal in Rome was probably my favourite meal in Italy. It was this lightly sauced, perfectly salty pasta with pork and cheese….

I was so excited to be finally be going to Chefchaouen because I had heard a lot about the city, as well as seen many beautiful pictures. Entering into the Medina of Chefchaouen was an unreal experience. I couldn’t believe how…
