Andalucia

Thanks for coming back once again to my travel and tourism blog folks. It is really humbling to have such a loyal and friendly readership and it really inspires me to keep coming up with fresh ideas to share with you guys. This post is going to be about an area of Spain where I spent a few months hanging out this time last year. I absolutely fell in love with the place. The area is known as Andalusia and sits on Spain’s southern Mediterranean coast. The capital city of Andalusia is Seville, but is also home to other great historic cities such as Malaga and Greneda.  I personally flew into Malaga and then caught a bus to the small seaside town of Almunecar, where I based myself for the duration of my trip. Almunecar, and Andalusia as a whole, is steeped in history and draws huge cultural and architectural influence from Moorish rule from the 8th to 15th centuries. The cuisine is largely based around a fresh fish diet due to proximity to the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean and local tradition of free tapas with every drink is still practised by the majority of eateries! The thought process behind this is that it allows customers to sample a restaurant's cooking free of charge with the aim of enticing them back for a larger meal at a later time or date. The whole town and its people had a charm about it that I can’t quite put my finger upon. All I know is that I felt very at home there and I can’t wait to go back. I would love to possibly make the town my home, but who knows how Brexit will affect those aspirations? Anyway folks, if you are ever in Spain, be sure to visit Andalucia. And if you are ever in Andalucia, be sure to visit Almunecar. Tell the guys at La Tralla restaurant I said hola! Bye for now! Read more

Travelling with a baby
 

Hi everyone, hopefully you’ve all been enjoying the recent posts on my travel and tourism blog.   I’ve just returned from my first trip abroad travelling with the little one and my partner and I’m so excited with how well it went that I am currently planning the next one!  There are plenty of new things to buy and one of the few new items I have purchased for my trip is a travel wallet.  Prior to this last week I hadn’t really thought of how useful a travel wallet could be, however travelling as part of a duo, or even harder, as part of a family it can be tough to keep track of all your travel documents and spending.   I purchased an Aspinal of London travel wallet online from aused classified ads website and so far it’s amazing!  Anyway, because I’ve been looking into travelling with a baby I thought today I would share with you a few of the tips and tricks I discovered this trip.  If you have any I’ve missed out that you’d like to share with us all please email them across to me as I’m sure there’s plenty of things I have missed out on!

Howdy folks! How are we all this fine Monday morning? (At least it is Monday morning for me, who know when you might be reading this?) Welcome back to my travel and tourism blog. It is really great to have you back and I just can’t wait to get started and share my latest post with you. It is on a subject that is extremely close to my heart. But firstly i just wanted to thank all those emailed in with their thoughts on my last post. Constructive feedback is the lifeblood of this blog and I really encourage you to share your points of view with me so I can continue to evolve and develop my writing style in accordance with your needs and wants. So anyway, onto today's topic - renting a moto or moped when on holiday. So why are we talking about this? Surely this should be a straightforward process? Well you would be right i saying so. Probably a little too straightforward in all honesty. In most cases you simply handover your passport and get handed the keys. Nobody asks to check your license (assuming you have one), ability level or travel insurance. And you have just handed over your precious travel document in way of a deposit. Often no contracts are signed and you have no way of knowing how much you might be expected to pay for repairs should you suffer an accident (never mind your hospital bills which is a whole other consideration). My advice would be to think carefully before hiring a moto or scooter and be sure to ask exactly what the deal is and get it in writing. You’d be crazy to even consider getting on one without insurance, but be sure to double check that your insurance actually covers you for such activities first. Stay safe out there folks!  Read more

Hi folks, well I am still enjoying the travelling life, and have ended up spending the last few months travelling in Australia where I have discovered the incredible joy of a motorhome. Wow, a life that is only really possible in somewhere as big as Australia. You must do yourself a favour and put a motorhome trip on your bucket list. The best way is to purchase a second hand motor home online. Read more

Travel Pillow

Travel Pillows

Hi folks. Today I want to talk about travelling practicalities. There are three very practical essentials that I take with me on every trip I go on. A plastic bin bag, (to line my rucksack and store dirty clothes), a basic first aid kit (for those little mishaps after one too many glasses of the local tipple of wherever I may be) and my travel pillow. I can absolutely not be without my travel pillow. It is an essential piece of kit for any trip of any length. Weather it be on a bus, train, plane, car, boat or sitting on a bench in departures of whatever airport, it just makes the discomfort of travel so much more bearable. In this blog post I’ll give you a rundown of the best travel pillows for sale on the market today and the best place to find one that will suit you down to the ground and save you a whole lot of unnecessary neck pain.

Why I love to travel.

04/04/2016 Main

Hi folks its Nelly here with my latest ramblings. I hope you are all doing well! I thought for this blog entry I would talk a little more about why exactly I love to travel. I mentioned in my introduction to the blog that when I was younger I was actually scared of the thought of traveling. I guess none of my family had really travelled much so I had nothing to aspire to in that respect. As a lover of art, culture and history though I soon realised how important travel could be in moulding  me as a person. I realised that there was so much more to my life than just the everyday mundane existence of working  a 9-5 job or having a family at a young age. For me these were not aspirational things and I longed for something more. Read more

Budapest

10/03/2016 Main

Hey Guys its Nelly here! So I am currently trying to tick off as many European cities as I can and most recently I got the chance to travel to Budapest! Wow, what a beautiful city. So for those of you who have never been, Budapest is a city of two halves – on the one side of the river you have Buda and on the other you have Pest. The city itself really does have something for everyone from the beautiful historic architecture, the outdoor café culture, cheap beer to hidden cocktail bars and underground raves. It really is a city that you can while away the hours wondering around and absorbing the culture and charm. Read more

Hello again, my name’s Nelly, sorry it’s took me a while to update the blog, been a busy bee. I hope you enjoyed my first few articles and I really hope you’re considering visiting Killarney at some point. Well it’s that time of year now where the weather isn’t great so most people just end up stuck in the house not really doing anything other than watching TV or playing games. I don’t let a little thing like the weather stop me and if it just means wearing a few more layers of clothing, then sticking on a pair of gloves, a scarf and a woolly hat, then so be it. Read more

Hope you enjoyed reading my post on Killarney, it really is my favourite place to visit when I’m in Ireland. This post is about something completely different, It had been sitting in the box waiting for a test drive on my next break away after a friend had recommend I buy one as they’d heard good things. Well last weekend I got my chance to try it out on a weekend away to, yes, you guessed it Killarney. After writing about Killarney in my last post, it really got me reminiscing so I thought why not, let’s go for a long weekend. I had to wrap up but it’s still beautiful no matter what time of the year. Read more

Visit Killarney

08/12/2015 Main

Hello and welcome back to Nelly’s Travel Blog. Before we move onto the rest of the world, I wanted to talk about a place which I hold dear to my heart. I’m an Irish bird so I spent many of my childhood days visiting the beautiful spots in Ireland with me Ma and Da. The place we used to visit the most and which is absolutely stunning, is Killarney. You’d definitely class Killarney as what you’d call a walking town. It is full of history everywhere you turn. It was Ireland’s first National Park and spans over 26,000 acres. The beautiful woodland is teaming with wildlife and natural beauty. The sandstone mountains look truly picturesque with the low-lying lakes scattered all around. Read more
