Time for another epic travel guide to something. This time, keeping this super close to our experience by talking about our beloved city of Barcelona with some cool, unusual and quirky hotels and places to stay in Barcelona, a popular destination for weekends away from Europe and for backpackers and travellers from around the world.

Whether you’re jumping on a plane for your next adventure or just need a way to organise all the crap in your bag, a good cosmetics bag is a useful accessory. When going through airport security, I always find it super useful to keep all the liquid and bits that need checking separate to the […]
This is an ongoing project for Team CMK, we want to host more travel advise and create a database of information for travellers seeking colour and creativity. To get started, we’ve pulled together a place to store ideas of colourful places to visit in Europe. Our first edit features a handful of obvious suggestions along […]
There are some things that are purchased for fun or pleasure. There are many things are purchased because they are necessary. An essential tool for freelancers, digital creatives or anyone who needs daily access to a laptop are decent practical and sturdy laptop bags and sleeves. However, it’s a bit like shopping for swimwear off […]
It’s cold, it won’t stop raining and you book a spa day to cheer yourself. Then you realise that you don’t own appropriate swimwear to enjoy the pool, so you head to the High Street to find something that is inexpensive, not dull and fits. It’s a totally nightmare. Don’t do what I did, shop […]
If you’re a cartoon or kawaii nerd like me, you’re already fully aware that you can get a Hello Kitty or Pokemon branded flight or hotel in certain parts of Asia with more ease that should be possible.

I’m writing this post because I have had SO many people ask for Barcelona recommendations since we moved. I’ve not had time (or motivation) to write lots of blogs since we made the move as there’s been so much more going on with our business, future plans and just generally settling into a new culture and way […]
How many languages do you speak? And I don’t mean, which languages did the UK school system make you learn for a couple of hours here and there when you were in High School. I’m talking fluent or enough to get by living in another country. As a Brit, it’s pretty much always just English and if you were keen you might have enough French, German or Spanish to get by on holiday but not much else. For me I know a bit of French, but really only my English is something to shout about.
So it’s been a week of living in Barcelona now, it’s gone so fast and we’ve achieved so much already. It’s been a minimum of 20 degrees everyday, only rained for about 10 minutes and we’ve eaten a lot of amazing and cheap food. We’ve also been to IKEA about 5 times, assembled ALOT of flat pack furniture, eaten a lot of IKEA meatballs and tried Spanish Domino’s. We’ve yet to go to the beach, even though my Dad asks me everyday if we have or not. It’s on the to do list. Anyway, thought it would be fun/interesting to have a little ramble about some of the (possibly) useful things that I’ve learnt about Spain so far.
