Barcelona via Zaragoza

Hola readers from iconic Barcelona. It is currently 10:43pm and we’re getting an early start on this blog because we have an early morning and a very busy day tomorrow so may not get much downtime to write. Today has been a big drive day, but lots has also happened. Today started with a poor […]

San Sebastián + Pamplona

Hola from rainy Pamplona. We are currently on the bus heading to Barcelona via Zaragoza. It’s a pretty long drive day but we’ve got a few things on tonight. Yesterday was a great but difficult day (for me, Aimee). Without fail I get sick when I go overseas on holiday. I even got sick on […]

Bilbao via Segovia

Hola! It is currently 9:20am and we are chilling in our beautiful hotel room in Bilbao. Yesterday was an eventful, but also kind of chilled day. We started the day off in Madrid with that excellent breakfast for a second time. Easily the best continental breakfast we have had here. After this it was a […]

Rest day in Rome

Ciao from Rome! It’s currently 8:45pm and we’ve been chilling at our hostel pretty much all day. We really needed to recharge after a whirlwind trip around Italy before we head to Spain. This morning we had a huge sleep in. I (Aimee) was feeling pretty rotten after last night’s festivities so we skipped breakfast […]

Last day of Contiki in Rome

Buongiorno readers! It is currently 10am and we are just waking up. It is nice to get a sleep in. We are not on Contiki any more, which is bittersweet. It is sad because we will miss everyone, but we are finally able to relax. We started the day with a relatively late wake up […]
