Learning to Sail with Trafalgar Sailing, Gibraltar

I’d been thinking about learning to sail for awhile now. My husband, Matt, is super keen on sailing and has much more experience than me. I wanted an opportunity to learn on my own, being able to ask whatever I wanted. After a failed attempt at Dubai Offshore Sailing Club, I decided to do some […]

Climb the Rock of Gibraltar

Okay, so the title of this post is a bit misleading. I didn’t actually climb the Rock of Gibraltar. Instead, I took the cable car up, and walked down. But ‘Cable Car the Rock of Gibraltar’ doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it? I was in Gibraltar in late May for a quick […]

Hotel Midmost, Barcelona

I wasn’t sold on travelling to Spain. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the idea, instead, it was difficult to pick with so many places to travel to. I’d read the news about tourists being unwelcome in Barcelona, and didn’t know what to expect. Luckily, our stay at Hotel Midmost turned out to be a […]
