Leather jackets & Pennyboarding

October 17, 2014

So i’m taking up a new sport! Well, hobby.. or perhaps its just a mode of transport.. the point is, i’m giving penny-boarding a go. For London Fashion Week I packed a few suitcases as I was going to be staying at the St Martins Lane, within my luggage of mostly ASOS items, was my brand new pastel coloured Pennyboard. I tried riding around my hotel room and random streets in Covent Garden; mostly failing and falling but my balance was and is actually getting better. Shini who randomly is pretty amazing at riding, took me for my first “lesson” a few weeks back. We headed to a park where I spent most of my time there holding onto a pole whilst balancing on the board, and of course enjoying the perplexed looks of the many kids who went by on their boards and bikes. It’s been 6 weeks since I started practising and I am getting better! I’m looking forward to being able to roam the streets and airports once the skill has been fully mastered!

So stay tuned, I could actually become pretty good at this!

At Port Adriano

October 12, 2014

PORT ADRIANO 10 PORT ADRIANO 7

One of the more well known spanish Islands would definitely be Mallorca, I recently visited but instead of going to the main land or the areas that I’ve heard of or seen friends visit, I was invited to go to Port Adriano, a newly developed marina that was designed by Philippe Starck. We arrived at Palma de Mallorca airport, jumped in a car, drove to the Port (the journey was around 20/30 mins) then checked into the Port Adriano Hotel and began to wander around for a bit.
I guess the whole idea of it being a Port didn’t quite kick in until we got to the marina, where all of the boats were docked, it was a pretty cool sight. On the first night Shini and I decided to pick our favourite boats which then lead to us devising plans on how they would become ours ..we of course failed to come up with anything tangible but it was good to dream. Each boat had such strong personalities. Whether it was a simple, white and sophisticated one or a completely customised, big speakers everywhere, disco balls featuring one, nonetheless it was quite nice to see them all lined up next to each other.

Whilst walking along the Marina, there were quite a few restaurants and cafes, in turn making slightly harder but equally exciting for us when it came to meal times. Being by the sea meant that a lot of them had great seafood offerings, so I would definitely head here, for your next holiday, just for that if you love all things Seafood. This being said I personally stuck to all things meat and had no issues finding something that tasted great.

I never thought to come to a Port for a holiday, especially since I don’t exactly own a boat, however there are quite a few options for renting, plus if you love chilling by the sea with great weather and awesome food, then this is the place for you. As it’s been newly developed it hasn’t got to that overly crowded state yet, as most areas within the spanish islands can be, so visit now whilst it’s still a semi-hidden gem!

Stay tuned for Part 2, where I’ll be showing you all that we got up to whilst out at sea!
