The scenic coastal walk from Sitges to Vilanova i la Geltrú is a great day trip from Barcelona if you’re looking for a beach walk with stunning views.
There’s a train station at the beginning and end of the journey, with frequent connections to Barcelona.
One important thing to know is you cannot find the path on Google maps and there are hardly any signs. It’s still quite easy to find though if you know what to look for. In this article, I’ll tell you everything about it.Read more
Having a full vegan English breakfast is the perfect addition to a cosy Sunday morning. Especially now with the temperatures getting colder. I’m not the biggest fan of canned baked beans though, since they contain a lot of sugar and produce a lot of waste. So I was looking for the best homemade vegan baked beans recipe.
I tried three different recipes and found a clear winner for my tastebuds. Here you can read all about it. Prefer to watch a video? Hop over to YouTube where I made a video about it as well.Read more
The city landscape of Barcelona is without a doubt shaped by Antoni Gaudi’s work. It might even be the main reason to visit the city. I know it was for me, to see the famous Sagrada Familia in real life, to wander around Park Güell with its colourful tile works. And those are just two examples of the best Gaudi buildings in Barcelona.Read more
Have you decided to visit Casa Battló and are not sure which tickets to get? Let me help you out. I’ll describe the different options and tell you if it’s worth it to go for a more expensive one.
One piece of advice right up front, whatever ticket you end up buying, do it online. If you buy it at Casa Battló itself, it’s €4 more expensive per person. You can even stand in front of the building and buy the ticket online with your phone if they have an open time slot. At high season it’s recommended to buy the ticket days in advance though.Read more
Making the bathroom zero waste friendly is one of the easiest things to do. Want to find out how? Here’s a list of zero waste alternatives to the most common toiletries.
An important thing to consider is that it’s not zero waste friendly to get rid of products you already have so you can switch to an eco-friendly alternative. So, for example, if you have a plastic hairbrush and it still works fine, keep it and use it. But if you’re in need of a new one, you might want to consider a brush made of wood or bamboo.Read more
There are numerous beaches you can reach from Porto by public transportation within an hour. What the best one is, depends on what your priorities for a day at the beach are. Here’s my list of the top beaches for different moods.
One more thing before I start: Porto is next to the Atlantic, which means the water is freezing. It never gets warmer than 17°C and there might be some bigger waves, which is great for surfing but not so much for swimming.Read more
First things first, I’m not “zero waste”, far from it to be honest. I do, however, try to reduce the waste I produce as much as possible. I guess you could say I’m “low waste.” But let’s face it, “Zero Waste for Beginners” just sounds more catchy than “Low Waste for Beginners”. So because I’m not a hardcore zero waste person, I do understand the struggle and in this article, I’m gonna try to give practical first tips. This article is for all those who are new to the zero waste lifestyle and want some easy steps to reduce their waste.Read more
Review of two recipes
This summer you could not go on social media without seeing at least one Watermelon Tuna recipe. The comments on those posts, reels, or whatever were usually along the lines of “OMG this looks so amazing”. So, of course, I had to actually try it out. I took two different recipes and gave them a go. In this article, you can read how easy it was to make and how the end result tasted.Read more
Every list of recommended day trips from Porto I could find contained a day trip to Braga, the third most populated urban area in Portugal.
When I visited, the city itself was very quiet. There were almost no tourists compared to other day trips from Porto. Though that might have been because of the 37°C heat (in Porto it was only about 28°C on that day).Read more
