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!

 

 

Milan

We’re back home:( Uff. I wanted to stay another day to be able to enjoy the yammi hotel breakfast and the beautiful people you see all over the city 😉 and the shops – I was like a lost puppy roaming around the streets and piazzas. Also, we ate quite a lot. And drank wine. The Shiseido Spa was a massive highlight though. I love their products and use them a lot, so it was quite an amazing experience to enjoy a facial in their newly opened spa. Everything was done to perfection, the salon, the therapists, the ‘relaxing room’ where we were treated to biscuits and tea after the treatment. It was especially nice to hydrate the face after a flight. Highly recommended.

Another place I can recommend is the restaurant and bar by Replay (jeans), called ‘The Stage’. If you want to feel like you’re in a movie scene, this is the place. Or, if you simply want to indulge in amazing food and drinks.

Milan feels like a very young, stylish and energetic city. We’ve been to Rome several times and I love it for its beauty and atmosphere, but Milan is the obvious choice if you want to shop, party or simply feel inspired and energized.

So, as much as I enjoyed it and wanted to stay, it’s always a nice feeling to come home to my little Bobo

Right now I’m just chillin’ at home because we came home late last night and this morning I had a yoga class. Also went for a long power-walk. We also walked a lot in Milan, so my legs are super tired, but in a nice way 😉

 

weekend break

What to pack? Light? Check-in luggage? I think no matter the amount of times you find yourself packing for a trip, long or short, there’s always that head-scratching moment a day before take-off. As if it’s a first. I don’t know…and I always open my bag when arriving at the hotel thinking what the hell did I pack this for? Where’s this or why did I leave that at home.

Let me update you once I get to the destination. Friday. Can’t wait.

Good morning little birds. I’m clearly desperate to travel right now…thoughts of cities and beaches, churches and piazzas, different types of food and landscapes are swirling around in my head like leaves on a windy day. Whenever I do something creative it always reflects my current mood, so today this is what came to mind…NYC and flowers! I couldn’t choose between city or nature so let’s mix them up!

Little dreams

Isn’t it weird how often we all feel like our place is the only place on earth. Our office, our home, our grocery, our beach, our cinema, our bank  even our problems and thoughts etc and very often do we get stuck in the same pace of life wanting it or not.  I think if you don’t have the time, money or possibility to travel you should dream. Just dream. So that you realize there are other people around us and other places. Other peoples problems and other peoples happiness. Try not to get stuck. Unless you are happy exactly where you are.
