Marbella

We had a great time in Spain, Marbella is gorgeous and can’t wait til we go back :)

What impressed me most was the nature and the beautiful mountains. The sea is something I cannot live without, but since we live next to it here in Malta, I paid more attention to other surroundings. Hearing Spanish all the time didn’t exactly hurt either 😉

Next stop Marbella

This time next week, we’ll be on our way to Marbella Spain! I’m very excited because I’ve never been there and we are staying for 5 days so that should leave us some time to get to know the city a bit. Aiden is set on spending most of the time car-spotting but I think I’m leaning more towards enjoying the Spanish nature and maybe do a bit of shopping. This trip is part work part holiday so we’ll mix it up as much as we can 😉

Check back to see our thoughts of the place!

 

 

Valencia Spring – 13

More pics inside! ;)

The city treated us well, it was a great weekend break (in the middle of the week though hehe) and we found a romantic place to celebrate our 5 years together. We did what we always do on trips abroad; eat amazing food, drink lots of wine and walk around til our feet are hurting :) and yeah some shopping too. Valencia is such a charming city, you can't not like it.

Anyway, as great as it was to be away, coming home is also nice, especially when you have a little boo called Aiden waiting for you like we had been away for a year.

Unfortunately he had managed to get himself into trouble at school and we had to have a long talk before going to sleep. It's hard to teach kids about life when no one can claim to be an expert themselves, but as long as we communicate and try to set a good example I'm sure all kids go through problems, fights ets at some point, but come out of things fine. I wasn't really angry about the actual trouble he had caused, that was a typical thing to do for an 8-9 year old boy, but he kept denying it for a while and that's what I don't like. So the talk was 99% about telling the truth and taking responsibility for what you do!

Enough about that, hope you all have a happy weekend, we'll continue with more nice food and some wine BUT lots of gym and walks in the sun too. Balance is key ;) xxxxx

John Masters Organics Travel Kit

BHpLNzyCcAEx8Ii

I finally got my little travel kit, just in time for next weeks trip to Valencia, Spain.

It contains:

Citrus & Neroli Conditioner 30 ml

Lavender Rosemary Shampoo for normal hair 30 ml

Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Lotion 30 ml

Blood Orange & Vanilla Shower Gel 30 ml

It's almost a must to use these kind of sets when you go for 2-3 days and travel with little luggage and need space for shopping.. ;)

I got this set from Feelunique.com

Post-travel review: The products are fine, not great, but just what you need when you travel and they all smell nice, however the bottles are too hard which made them inconvenient to use. I'd give it 3/5.
