Ola. I have been on a little trip this past week. Any guesses where?

We had a holiday in the Algarve, Portugal with a trip across the border to Seville in Spain.

People (especially us Brit’s) did you know, can you remember, that the sun actually shines in other places around the world?! Thick coats and boots are not always necessary. Snow is found on mountain peaks not driveways and pavements! It’s a revelation.

Apart from some welcome rays of sun to lighten the mood, it was refreshing to get away and see some new sights and colours and soak up some inspiration.

I love mooching around foreign shops, anything from hardware stores to fancy pants ones. However nothing came home from the Spanish dress shop you’ll be relieved to hear!

There was one very desirable shop full of gorgeous packages. But Ryan air baggage allowance meant I had to content myself with photographs.

I love wandering streets abroad because when places are unfamiliar, everything is usually a welcome surprise and Seville was full of lovely tiled street names or religious icons.

I love this quote because it reminds me to actually come home and work from the hundreds of photos that got taken and to feed off the inspiration that new sights have brought before it’s dissipated and forgotten. So that’s what I’m up to this week.
