The weather finally brightened a little and we raced out to the neighbouring city of Murcia to admire its historic sights and gothic architecture.
Apologies for the photo quality of that one ^, again was busy taking photos on my iPhone before realising this place really deserved some proper beauty snaps.

So, first day out in Spain… We had no idea where to go, what to do, what to eat (we were seriously disorganised. My parents decided to go on the holiday then demanded I do all the research, despite me having a full time job and erm, no time to research). We decided to wing it.
We drove to Cartegena, found somewhere to eat (ish) that was open, had relatively decent ratings on Google and was close (ish) to where we were trying to head (ish). They didn’t speak English and we didn’t speak Spanish. This was obviously going to turn out well.
After battling with the menu we managed to order…
Clockwise from top left: tiny, slimy eel – whole, eyes and all with pickled onions and prawns | green goop (supposedly avocado mush), crumbled hard-boiled egg droppings with prawns | potato salad, anchovies and olives. View Full Post
Exactly 2 weeks ago today, I turned 21 for the nth time. I kid you not, I seem to have flown to neverland at one point and got myself stuck there. I am literally twenteen. Some day I hope to grow up a little (mentally and physically please!) but that day is obviously yet to come.
But I digress. My birthday is one of those amazing-yet-annoying ones as it lands during the Easter hols.
On the bright side, this means I am usually free and so is everyone else. On the not-so-bright side, everyone else seem to have lives and friends and family to visit/return to, so nobody is around to celebrate with me. Ergo, my options are to either sit around on my lonesome watching property or comedy shows on TV, or go home and visit my family.
I sound like such a miserable old sod but to be honest, I really like chillaxing alone, ordering some take out and watching Location, Location, Location or How I Met Your Mother/The Big Bang Theory (apparently this is not normal?). I literally source L,L,L on 4OD and watch re-runs of every episode. You can tell I’m a hoot at parties.
I also love option #2, visiting the fam, which is exactly what I did.
