The coolest hostels for under £50 in Stockholm, Sweden

My next trip is coming up in 15 days and I'm so excited! You might have read about it previously on my blog, but it's going to be my first solo trip abroad.

Barcelona: The best tourist hotspots

The Spanish southern city of Barcelona is definitely one to visit if you’re interested in culture, history, or food. Its many architectural sites are amazing to visit if you’ve got anything from a few hours to a few days to spare.
