One of the reasons I love Barcelona is its impeccable location – nestled snugly between the sea and mountains, we’re quite spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing what we want to do on the weekends. Fancy a day with your book on the sand? Not a problem. Fancy a day hiking or biking in the mountains? We’ve got you covered.
A huge, huge hello from Barcelona. Yep, hello, I’m actually blogging. After a four month hiatus, it was time for me to spill my words onto a screen and stop hiding.
I haven’t been blogging much recently. Not just because I haven’t had the time to, but because there have been a lot of things going on behind the scenes of this little blog that I’ve been focusing my energy and efforts into.
Where to start?
I’ve got a confession to make. I’ve been a bad blogger.
As many of you know, until a few months ago I had lived in York for 6 years. I’m originally from the South Wales valleys, but after going to university in York, I decided to make it my permanent home. It is one incredible city that I am lucky to have lived in for so long, and I’ll always think of it as home.
I’m a big fan of packing, in all its forms. Whether it’s packing up a house to move (I’m so used to this, with 6 moves in 6 years), packing up the car for a long journey, or packing for a holiday, I’m all over it. Think of the lists that come with this process! You’ve got ‘to take’ lists, ‘to buy’ lists…it’s organisation central and I bladdy love it. There’s just something so cosy and comforting about gathering what you’ll need for some nights away from home and sticking them in a bag, off you go.
