Favourite Memory From Travelling

What's your favourite memory from travelling? Maybe it was when you visited somewhere that you'd always wanted to go to, or perhaps it was a special occasion with a loved one? Or maybe it was the time that you laughed so much with your friends that you still talk about it years later?

There are so many memories to choose from, but I thought I'd share with you the special and unique experience of our visit to the beautiful village of Santillana del Mar in Northern Spain.
Northern Spain is so beautiful, and Santillana del Mar is a little gem in the Spanish countryside, which certainly surpassed our expectations.
We wandered through the cobbled streets, enjoying the traditional Spanish architecture nestled in the gorgeous green hills. It was so pretty! It's a lovely place to potter along and enjoy a slower pace of life.
After all that walking we treated ourselves to lunch at La Huerta del Indiano, which had a beautiful courtyard setting, complete with a chandelier hanging from one of the trees in the gardens.
The setting was really special, and the food was delicious; especially the creme caramel!
After lunch, we continued to meander along the cobbled alleyways, admiring the pretty stone cottages with their well-tended hanging baskets and terracotta flower pots. It was very hot, so it was a welcome relief to get some shade and cool down.

The dreamy village of Santillana del Mar made us feel like like we'd stepped back in time,which is probably why it's my favourite memory from travelling :)

  1. I absolutely love this post! I would have to say that one of my favorite travel memories was visiting Ireland with my grandparents and spending the day in the village where my grandmother' smother grew up!


    1. Ahh, thank you, Courtney! Your trip to Ireland sounds like it was very special :) Have a great week! x

  2. Great post! Your pics from Spain are lovely and make me want to go back again. One of my favorite travel memories is taking a helicopter to the top of a glacier in Alaska. It was like be transported to another world.


    1. Hi Kendra! Thank you :) Wow, your trip sounds amazing! x
