What To Eat, Shop & See In Barcelona

Last in my Barcelona series is this little lot! Some tips and tricks for a few things that we got up to and I really enjoyed so I wanted to share just in case anyone else is travelling to Barcelona and needs some advice on what to get up to over there.

1. Eat

Eating is always first on my list when it comes to travelling anywhere. I love to do loads of research before I go and then always end up finding new gems that I didn’t discover before. I’ve already done a round-up of my Top 4 Barcelona Brunch Destinations so, if brunch is your thing, definitely give that a read. Brunch is probably one of my favourite occasion because it is that, it’s an occasion, it’s not just a meal! So, brunch aside I’ve got a couple of places that I’d definitely recommend heading for some delicious meals.

Barcelona La Boqueria Photo Diary

Today I’ve got a little photo diary of on of my favourite places in Barcelona, the main market La Boqueria. This is a market packed full of the most amazing food. The fruit, juices and smoothies were my absolute fave, from €1 you can get ice-cold fresh mango juice – it’s amazing. There were also butchers, fish, cheese, chocolate and sweet stalls as well as little coffee bars and places for breakfast in the middle of the market.

Coco Vail Beer Hall Barcelona

Coco Vail is Barcelona’s first beer hall and is a seriously great place to spend a few afternoon hours during a Barcelona city break. We loved it so much here that we actually went back twice during a 4 day break, the first time for lunch and then the second time just for a drink but both times we were so glad we went.

Where To Stay In Cheltenham: Cheltenham Park Hotel

We like to get out and about in the UK, try new towns and cities and always find a new coffee shop to delve into. This weekend we stayed at the Cheltenham Park Hotel which is a huge hotel in the beautiful Cotswolds and I thought I’d tell you all about it.

The Location & Facilities

Cheltenham Park is actually located in Charlton Kings, about 2 miles drive from the centre of Cheltenham in a quiet area and only about 10 minutes from Cheltenham Racecourse. It’s a really big hotel, one of the biggest I’ve stayed in but the rooms are all great sizes. There is a gym, spa, beauty and health club facilities with a pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room. We spent some time in the well-equipped gym and the pool on Saturday afternoon which was lovely. I decided to run a 5km in addition to my Marathon In A Month that I’m doing for the British Heart Foundation and I loved running on an actual treadmill instead of the road for once!

Check out my Instagram with some snaps from the weekend if you fancy! I explored some new places and absolutely loved Hoxton & Hackney but definitely found that I was missing some essentials that would have made my trip a lot easier.

The 3 Best Ways To Sight-See In Ontario

I’ve always wanted to visit Canada, but it’s such a huge place and whenever I sit down to (virtually) explore another area looking for the perfect destination, I change my mind once more. Where I want to go, the things I want to see, the tours I want to experience.

I think I’ll have to take a few trips over there before I’ve satisfied my Canadian wanderlust, but for me, I’ve decided on Ontario as the first destination for my Canadian adventure. It has so much to offer though, that I thought I’d give you guys a few tips on how to plan your sight-seeing. It’s certainly helped me to decide where to start!

Speed Date With The Swedes!

If you’ve heard of Midsummer in Sweden then you’ll know that they seriously know how to party and celebrate this occasion. We’re talking food, drink and lots and lots of flowers, it looks simply beautiful in the summer sun! Rekorderlig Cider have put on a free Swedish pop-up festival on their very own vessel, the Midsommarstång! It will be popping up on weekend’s throughout July on London’s waterways, namely Paddington Basin, Granary Square Kings Cross and Olympic Park where guests can immerse themselves in Scandinavian culture, food and drink. Sounds like a pretty fab weekend activit to me, I can’t get enough of Scandi design so I’m sure I’d love the culture as a whole. The festival includes a pop-up party, bar serving Rekorderlig cocktails, a grill and chef’s table four course meal as well as the awesome Seven Flowers Swede Dating event. Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 17.26.55 Super MTV babe Maya Jama (also Hello! Magazine’s Rising Star of 2016 FYI) headed down to the last dating event and got into the Swedish spirit and mingled with some singles. Rekorderlig Cider is definitely on course to bring true love to the streets (or waterways!) of London this summer. The next dating event, if you fancy heading down, is on 21st July at Paddington Basin.

“The Seven Flowers Swede Dating event follows on from a time-honoured Swedish folklore on Midsummer’s Eve in Sweden where it’s tradition for single women to pick seven flowers and place them in under their pillow at night, and they’ll dream of their future husband. With this in mind, Rekorderlig Cider is hoping the single men and women of London will find the partner of their dreams during the swede dating events!”
