I've arrived! I'm on the other side of the world; far from home, family and friends. The adventure started Sunday morning (October 5th) we woke early to make our way to the bus station; my parents, sister, her partner and baby all came down to wave myself and my boyfriend off.

After cruising through the mountains and sunning it up on the Costa del Sol our next big city trip was Barcelona, of which I'd heard only great things.

At 422m it's France's highest waterfall, a sight to behold. When arriving at the small town of Gavarnie, we parked up and made our way towards the fall.… Continue reading Sandals & Falls
