Why we’ve moved to Spain…

Why not? Where we are born is not something we can choose, it just happens. So, why not think about living in another country? It’s an adventure, it’s an opportunity to learn a new language, it’s a chance to meet new people and live amongst a different culture and chances are you’ll get better weather than the UK too! Whilst the UK is still part of the EU, it’s the time to give it a go too whilst the process is fairly straight forward, who knows what the future holds there! It’s not straight forward at all, but more on that in another post. We signed the paperwork and got our keys last night, so now we’ve just got to figure out how to get our stuff there, so, time to explain it all!

What I learnt from being on tour with punks…

As most of you will know my boyfriend, Miz is in a band and has been in various bands for a very long time. He goes on mini tours about once a month and gigs around the UK frequently. His latest incarnation of his band is a three piece meaning that whenever they go on tour there’s no space in the car for me so I’ve never been on tour with them. This year, Miz started pursuing some acoustic stuff under the Larkhill name and this weekend I had my first experience of being on tour and thought it’d be interesting to blog about as it’s not something everyone will have experienced and was certainly very illuminating and fun! Now, just bear with me whilst I write this currently being the most tired I’ve ever been.

My Tips for Moving to London

I was chatting to the lovely Kayleigh on Twitter last night as she’s thinking of moving to London and shared some of my wisdom with her. Made me think that now might be a nice time to write up this little article with some tips on moving to London based on my experience of moving to the London suburbs from Leeds and then spending 5 years in various places. Feel free to let me know if you have any additional questions or feedback via Twitter (@JayneKitsch) or in the comments of this post.

Stuff That Happened in 2015…

As is my annual tradition around this time of year I’m taking a moment to review the year that’s come to a close and look back at what made it awesome, what I achieved and other glorious things, I’ve pulled together some highlights in photos to share with you too. Overall, it’s nice to say that this year has been fairly chilled for the first time in a long while, after everything went tits up about 3 years ago, I finally feel like I’ve got some kind of normality and stability back, although certainly not in the conventional sense.

Best Burger in Barcelona: Bacoa

When we lived in London one of our favourite things to do was to go for a burger. We went to pretty much all of the places that made it onto any best burger in London list and generally our top 3 include MEATMission, Burger Bear and Dirty Burger. A few weeks ago we were in Barcelona and we found a burger that may just rival our London top three, The Bacoa Burger at Bacoa.

Win a Trip to Paris with #PerfectParis2015

This year has been about getting excited about travelling, finding my sense of adventure and making plans for future escapades. So far this year, we’ve been to Barcelona and to Amsterdam. We’ve also visited my Mum in Wales (exotic!) and been to my third ever music festival, which was awesome and I really ought to blog about separately at some point.

Highlights from our Barcelona Trip…

This is a long overdue blog post, as we went to Barcelona almost a month ago now! Which has totally flown by with us being so busy. Anyway, wanted to do a little blog post about our trip as it was a first for me. First time in Spain, first time not working towards a strict tourist must see list, first time cycling in another country (and second time since being a kid), first time drinking cocktails on a beach and many more.

To get things started, that’s me sat on the beach drinking the best cocktail I’ve ever had, a Pina Colada the size of my head. Perfect. Read more
