Happy Thursday Everyone,
I hope you are all having a fabulous week after the Bank Holiday weekend! I’m finally getting around to posting my complete travel guide to Nerja. I have already posted about my favourite restaurant in Nerja and a day trip that I insist on you taking if you are in the vicinity. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been going to Nerja for over twelve years now so I like to think I’ll be able to give a helping hand to anyone who is thinking of visiting my favourite Spanish town.
Nerja is situated at the most southern point of Spain and is famous for it’s Balcon d’Europa. While the Balcon is truly stunning, there are so many other reasons to love this quaint town. One of my favourite things to do when I’m there is to go for a walk up the backstreets with my grandad and admire the elderly ladies selling fresh fruit and vegetables from their patio doorsteps. It’s just an authentic Spanish town and even though over the last few years it has become increasingly popular, it still hasn’t lost it’s charm or become commercialised the way so many other Spanish towns sadly have.
This time around I went with 9 other brilliant ladies, so, in short, the craic was had. I won’t delve too deep into said antics (what happens “on tour” and all that)..but I will give you all the best tips on where to stay, where to eat and where to wander!
Here we go.. View Post
I’ll start this post by making a very bold statement – If you’re in Nerja, you simply cannot not go here. In other words, you would be crazy to miss out on the experience of dining at Restaurant 34. And that’s exactly what it is – an experience. From the second you step into Restaurant 34, you know that you are in a place of sheer luxury. No matter how many times I have been here, each time I am still taken back by it’s decadence and opulence. Nerja has no shortage of beautiful restaurants from quaint, authentic tapas bars to more modernised ones but this place tops them all, every single time. Having been here before and coming on holidays with another nine ladies, I just knew I had to bring them here. I was so sure that they would love it as much as me that I went ahead and booked the restaurant three months in advance. View Post
I’m finally back to a normal(ish) routine after a few days away in Nerja in the south of Spain. If you’ve been following my blog from the start then you’ll know that my grandparents live in Nerja for around half of the year and I’ve been going there since I was 12. I absolutely love it there. I’m going to be doing a separate post on everything you need to know when going to Nerja but for now, I’m going to be talking about the idyllic village situated in the mountains not far from Nerja – Frigiliana… View Post
A day filled with craic, culture, good food & wine..sounds perfect right? That’s why I was absolutely delighted to have been invited back to attend this years Campo Viejo Tapa’s Trail. Last year myself & my best friend Vicky attended and when I told her this year I had been invited back, she told me quite frankly under no circumstances was I allowed invite anyone else, so I think that will tell you how much you she enjoyed last year’s event too!
This year’s trail included four amazing well known Galway eateries; The House Hotel, Biteclub, 56 Central and Cava Bodega.
I’ll warn you from the get go, this post is gonna be a picture heavy one but once you look at the photos you will understand why. While I was in America last month, we were lucky enough to be there for the 4th of July weekend. On that weekend we decided we would take the plunge and drive up to Lake Tahoe. Now when I say we, what I really mean is leave all of the driving to our brilliant and considerably less of a wuss, best friend Sara Kate and leave the annoying singing and car-games to us in the back. We rose early on the Saturday morning (hungover, again- shock, I know!) to come to the conclusion that it was probably best to get out of the city for the weekend so Tahoe View Post
