(NEW POST) ROADTRIP ENGLAND. PART 1. “Birmingham. A famous Bull and an epic Curry!”

Monday October 1stย  was the day I was BACK IN LONDON! ๐Ÿ™‚ This time me and the Mister headed over via Ryan Air so we arrived very late at night. (From Bremen it is either very early in the morning or late in the night!)

After a good night rest at Travellodge Stanstead we were ready to start our first Roadtrip England!ย  Not only did we visit different Towns and Cities in the United Kingdom during the 5 days but we had the pleasure of meeting up with some lovely people from Twitter as well. Some we have already met back in May and some we met for the very first time.

First stop on our route was after 2,5h car ride the City ofย  Birmingham. aka Brum

We met up with the lovely Helen for the first time at her place. After we had some Tea and a bit of chit-chat we took our rented car and drove to the city center for some proper sightseeing ! Oh but before that we had the pleasure of driving through the famous “Spaghetti Junction”, which was really impressive. Take a look!

The weather was semi okay. Lots of rain but we had a lot of fun with our local Brum- Girl Helen aka @pinkgoddess strolling around Birmingham. We were really lucky as it was Helen’s day off so plenty of time to get to know each other beside typing all day long on Twitter! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Birmingham was after London and Manchester the third City I have visited in England. Really liked the mixture between the old and new buildings but more than that I love the accent!!!! Really like the sound and melody! ๐Ÿ™‚

Quite some time and a hearty lunch later we were back in the north of Brum.ย  Helen’s Mister Rhys aka @mauvedeity was about to come home from work so we dropped Helen of at home before we met up again. Me and the Mister checked into Travellodge, which was literally 3 minutes from their home! ๐Ÿ˜€

Half an hour later we four had the arms full of drinkies and walked up to the Curry Place “Balti Garden”. where we wanted to have Dinner. It was such a joyful time. Lots of yummy good food. Great laughter and stories to tell.ย  We continued the drinkies and the fun stories at the Wilkin’s Mannor! Nom nom. Always a pleasure to have PIMM’S with you Helen!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you so much Helen& Rhys for the brilliant time! We had so much fun with you and we cannot wait to see you again. Either in Hamburg or in Brum! ๐Ÿ™‚

Lots of Love*Linn

Stay tuned for ROADTRIP PART 2! ๐Ÿ™‚

(NEW POST) VIVA ESPANIA

This year is all about Twitter. I mean more than usual. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This summer it happens that me and the lovely Mister booked our first vacation on Twitter!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

One of my friends from UK, Alan, who I really enjoy tweeting with has a daughterย Lynzey who moved to Spain with her family several years ago to live there. She rents out a stunning self-catering villa calledย La Rosilla and that’s exactly were we spent 8 lovely days!

We flew from Hamburg to Madrid, rented a car and headed down south to theย  Montes de Malaga Natural Park . Roadtripping at its best, I can tell you. ๐Ÿ˜€

Thankfully we’ve had aircon in the car as it was boiling outside with 40ยฐC. Nothing like the rain and cold temperatures in Hamburg! It was such a relief for me to finally be in some summery enviroment I instantly feel relaxed. ๐Ÿ™‚

After around 5 hours we reached the Villa. Such a beautiful place up in the Mountains! Me and the Mister decided to have a really relaxed stay at La Rosilla, which means every second day a sightseeing trip and the rest of the days we wanted to spend chillaxing and reading at the Casa.

We made our first day trip to the famous city ofย  Granada. Survived the queuing in front of the Alhambra and lost ourselves in all the history and old architecture that the Muslims build around 1492.

Beside this we have visited the city of Malaga and the stunning Cliffside City of Ronda and enjoyed the seaside at Playa de torre del mar! ๐Ÿ™‚ Here are some pics for you to enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoying a yummy Cafe con leche inย  a Cafe in Malaga!

Almost at the end of our stay at La Rosilla we had a proper Tweet up with Lynzey and her husband on a really warm Spanish Night on the porch! It was really nice to chat about everything whilst enjoying a Cerveza! ๐Ÿ™‚

The 8 days really went so fast but we really enjoyed ourselves. It wasn’t stressful at all and we did pretty well not doing too much. It was my first time on the Spanish Mainland and I must say I was really surprised about all the color shades of green and brown and yellow that the landscape has in store.ย  Andalusia has a wonderful vibe. Brilliant weather, great food and amazing cultural heritage! A place to visit for sure! ๐Ÿ˜€
