Menorca is a little piece of paradise in the Mediterranean. I’ve wanted to visit this Spanish island for years, and now that I’ve been invited to speak at an influencer conference called MustSeeMenorca, I’ve finally gotten my chance. I have 5 days in Menorca to take in the highlights, and each day I find something new to love.
Barcelona packs the whole Earth into one city. Mountains, beaches, and urban areas coexist in a grand mix natural beauty, rich history, and flamboyant architecture, making it one of the most unique travel destinations in the world.

There is a courtyard in Granada. It has a fountain in it. There are 12 lions surrounding the fountain, each one spouting water in the direction of a beautifully decorated Moorish wall. Yes, you know where I’m talking about. It’s the Alhambra; the lion courtyard in the Nasrid Palaces, to be exact.
I wasn’t sure I wanted to go to the Costa del Sol. Popular package holiday destinations always give me pause, and Malaga and the surrounding area are about as popular as package holiday destinations get. Add to that the fact that it was November and not quite bathing suit season anymore, and I was even more loath leave London for Spain. But my family had already booked a trip there, and who was I to say no to a little bonding time on the Sun Coast?
