My 3 Flying Must Haves

Hi Everyone!

So as it is summer people are traveling alot more, meaning people are flying more. So because of this I thought I would share with you all my 3 must haves when flying, regardless whether it is a 2 hour flight or a 10 hour flight. So I hope you enjoy this post and lets get into it.

Headphones and Phone 

So these go together side by side, I always have my phone and headphones for a flight. this is because quite often on flights I listen to music or podcasts so having my phone and headphones with me allows me to do that. Also if you are on a long flight that has inflight entertainment it is always handy to have your own headphones incase the airline doesnt provide them or you just want to use your own.

A Book 

Another thing I always bring with me on a plane is a book, whether its one ive been reading or a brand new one i have just bought. I find reading is a great way to kill time on a plane or while waiting for a plane, so I always have one with me.

A bottle of water 

Now I know you cant take a full bottle through security but you can bring an empty one or just buy one in duty free. Having a bottle of water means I can keep hydrated at anytime I want and it also means I dont have to buy drinks on the plane.

Sorry this post was pretty short but I hope you still enjoyed it. Stay tuned for more posts coming soon.

A Day Swimming In Waterfalls at Krka National Park, Croatia

Hey guys, so I recently came back from my holiday in Croatia. While we were there we went on a day tour around Krka National Park, and it was honestly incredible. So I thought I would share it with you all. We had 4 stops on the tour so I will split up the day into those stops. Anyway I hope you enjoy this post and let’s get to it.

Stop 1 – Skradinski Buk

So after about an half an hour drive from Trogir, we arrived at Krka National Park. Our first stop is the big waterfall of Skradinski Buk. This is the one which you tend to see most pictures of. Once we got there our tour guide explained a few things before letting us go off for 2 hours on our own to walk around the area and go and swim in the waterfall. Although it was really busy getting the change to swim in the waterfall was incredible.

Stop 2 – Canyon View and Island Monastery

Our second stop was only a brief one on the way to stop 3. After driving for a while through amazing scenery we stopped at the top on a canyon for a few minutes to take some pictures of the Island Monasteries. The view was incredible!

Stop 3 – Roški Slap

For our third stop we went to a smaller less busy waterfall for an hour. I didn’t take many photos here mainly because I decided to swim here for a while as it was my quieter!

Stop 4 – Šibernik Old Town

Our final stop on the tour was the Historic Centre of Šibernik. The town is a UNESCO heritage site and it’s absolutely incredible. When we arrived our tour guide gave us a brief history of the area before giving us an hour to walk around. When we were walking around we found a fountain that had little tortoises in it which was super cool. Once we had left Šibernik the bus dropped us of where we were staying after a super long but amazing day.

I hope you enjoyed this post about my day in Krka National Park and Šibernik Old Town. Stay tuned for more blog posts coming soon!

5 Things to see and do in Barcelona

Hey guys so as I said in my last blog post I’m still on holiday in Croatia! Keep a look out for Croatia blog posts coming your way very soon. So continuing my series of 5 Things to see and do, I have chosen Barcelona. So without further ado let’s get to it!

La Sagrada Familia

The huge Cathedral designed by Antoni Gaudi, is absolutely incredible. Despite construction beginning in 1882 it isn’t due to be completed until 2028. For a price you can go inside the building and have a tour which takes you to the top of one of the spires, giving you an amazing view of the city. Whether you decide to go inside the Cathedral or not, it is most definitely a must see in Barcelona.

Parc Guell

Parc Guell is another must see attraction in Barcelona. The park dedicated to Antoni Gaudi’s work. From the highest point you get an amazing view of the city leading all the way to the beach. You do have to pay a small fee to go into the park and I would definitely recommend booking in advance as only 300 people are allowed in the park at a time . I would most definitely recommend a visit to this gorgeous place

Barcelonetta Beach

There isn’t a lot to say really about Barcelonetta beach other than it is absolutely gorgeous. Even if you don’t spend long here I would recommend a visit to see the gorgeous sandy beach and the sea. It is the perfect chill spot for a few hours after walking round the city.

La Ramblas 

La Ramblas is an amazing 1km long street in the centre of Barcelona with tonnes of little stalls selling everything. The atmosphere is incredible walking down this street, there are tonnes of street performers and musicians all the way down the stretch. I haven’t really got much more to say other than it is 100% worth the visit.

Camp Nou

Camp Nou football stadium is the home to FC Barcelona and is a phenomenal place to visit. The atmosphere is amazing both inside and outside the stadium. Not being the biggest football fan myself I was slightly sceptical of going but I honestly would go back time and time again. You do have to pay to enter the stadium but even if you don’t go into the stadium I would recommend going and having something to eat and drink on the onsite bar as it was honestly some of the best food I ate the whole trip. I would 100% recommend a visit to Camp Nou.

I hope you enjoyed this post and stay tuned for more posts coming soon!
