Pro’s and Con’s about being in the wedding industry. Con: You don’t really get much of a December holiday. Pro: Winter is usually dead so you get to go escape the cold and go on a European vacation! Yeah : )
Dylan and I are taking the whole of July off and visiting a few places we’ve never been to before and also going to our first international music festival together!
(We’re awaiting the line up announcement!).
All our flights, and internal travel has been booked but now we’re just trying to find accommodation. We’ve decided to do a mix of really cheap accommodation and some nice (fairly priced) accommodation. If you have any tips for us we’re looking to book accommodation in Nice here Amsterdam, Croatia, Italy (we’re driving down the boot, but looking for nice places on the coast too), Suffolk (UK) and Barcelona.
Also if you know of any must see sneaky non-touristy spots in these areas we’d appreciate all the recommendations we can get!
On my search for cool places I found this awesome hotel in Barcelona via Design Milk which I think will suit us just fine ; ) It’s called The Chic & Basic Ramblas Hotel. It looks pretty basic but has been beautifully designed.
“The designers of the hotel created an experience around the ’60s in Spain, matching the building’s 60’s vibe. With 97 rooms on six floors, the design is crisp and fresh, no-nonsense and comfortable. Using the doors of the rooms and exhibition panels, the hallway of each floor projects a specific aspect of those years: Culture and Society, Design Icons, Tourism, Advertising, Folklore, “Gauche Divine.”
How sweet is that little car in the middle of the common room?
I also found this article on the top 10 boutique hotels in Barcelona *sigh* for one day when we’re rich and famous photographers.
