My name is Barbara, I am Spanish , and I am a receptionist working in London. I have a Tourism Management degree and I'm passionate about everything related to travel. Whenever I have the opportunity, I pack my stuff and I go to see the world!

I am a lover of food and beer. When I am on holidays I like to discover the city that I am visiting but I also like to have time to enjoy a good meal or drinks with my travel companions. This way there is a balance because holidays are not just about discovering new places but also to relax and have fun!

The idea of this blog came to me very naturally, partly from my fascination with travel and simply because I enjoy helping my family and friends to plan their holidays.

I hope that you not only find enjoyment from my site but also valuable information concerning different destinations, places to visit, where to stay during your trips along with transport advice, etc.

If you have any questions regarding the info that I have provided, please feel free to contact me, I look forward to hearing from you!

My favourite places in Tooting Broadway

This area in South West London is a great place to live. Tooting Broadway has been named one of the 10 coolest neighbourhoods on earth by Lonely Planet and I can see why! If you visit this part of London you will find a mixed community that cohabits peacefully, endless shopping options and many nice restaurants and pubs.

I specially like Tooting and Broadway markets with all their little eateries and shops from different parts of the globe. Here you can find info about my favourite places in this trendy neighbourhood.
