Villa Vibes - Mallorca

I spent my last part of the summer in Spain in Mallorca where a group of 11 of us rented a huge Villa for the week. It started out with a random group of friends of friends all going but it ll worked out amazingly as we all got along great and had such a rad time. We spent our days lazing by the pool drinking, swimming and playing beer pong in our private pool. Then our nights drinking some more, eating family dinners and playing games. A few of the days we ventured in to different little towns around the area and also rented a yacht for the day to cruise around in. It was a great relaxing vacation and I'll leave you with a load of pictures from the week!

Here is a video I made from our week in paradise.

This summer was the first time I decided not to head back home to Canada for a visit and actually take advantage of the long break and beautiful weather in Europe. So I headed to Iceland first with my brother which you can read about here. Then I spent the rest of my summer in Spain!

I headed off for a girls week in Barcelona before one of my friends left for a year long travel around the world. My first experience with Barcelona was not the best and I actually didn't really enjoy the city but upon going back a second time I loved it! The food for one thing was amazing! We spent most of our days walking the city streets and the nights were spent going tapas loco! We got to hit up some amazing food spots that were recommended to Sara from other bloggers.

We took in the nightlife and went to see Steve Aoki at Pasha one night. Which could have been amazing but they literally packed the club so ridiculously full that you couldn't move anywhere. We lucked out and found a good little spot on the side of the DJ booth but it meant we couldn't see Steve Aoki very well the whole time. But we did have enough space to dance around which was better for us. 

Overall it was a very chilled out nice way to spend a week of my summer. I love any place that does good wine and good food :)

Boomtown Fair

This summer I attended my first ever festival which as it seems is a right of passage for most early 20-somethings over here. But in true late bloomer fashion I attended my first one in my thirties :)

I had no clue what to expect from a festival only from what people had told me which was
1. Wellies are a must since it's one big mud pit!
2. You're constantly dirty (as is everyone else)
3. The port-a-loos are the worst things ever
4. It's the 'best time they have ever had!'

Boomtown was such a good first festival to attend as it wasn't overwhelming and we somehow lucked out with amazing weather all weekend (I ended up leaving the wellies at home)! We opted for the comfort camping and stayed in bell tents for the weekend which only cost us a bit more and we got a big tent with lots of room plus access to private loos and showers. Which was fine for me as I'm not that fond of being unwashed for four days.

The best thing about Boomtown is that they really don't have any huge names in music performing so all the shows we went to weren't overcrowded and we could actually get close up to every band we went to. Plus they had so many stages all over that you could just walk around and every 10 minutes you would hit a new show. It also has different districts each with it's own unique theme and immersive theatre happening all around you all the time. Which you won't get at most festivals.

Here is the video they made form this summer so you can get an idea of how cool it was.

Had my GoPro with me in Iceland and sadly only used it on one of the days. But here is a little video from a day out in Iceland. This is my first time editing so it's a little shaky... but still cool.
