So the travel blog comes to an end.
Madrid Airport 1/4/19.
Time to go home.
Thought my flight was 1335. Was 1305. Had to run to the furthest gate ever.
I had heard that Spain take walking sticks off disabled people, let alone hikers, & I'd got it through at Barcelona but Madrid wouldn't allow it.
I explained it had been to Iceland, Barcelona, Belfast, Birmingham Marrakesh, Shannon, East Midlands, Bristol, Tangier (airports) & no problem & he still said no.
As I was late for flight I just said 'fuck ya then' & I ran to my flight.
Doesn't matter, they're only £7. Just wish I hadn't of had to lug it around when it gets took off you anyway.
So, as far as this adventure goes I got to knocked 3 things off bucket list.
La familia sagrada (day and night), Chefchaouen, & paragliding.
Shame about toubkal but sometimes weather isn't your friend. Still got to stroll on it tho.
Just had a very quick look, and I can get flights straight to marrakesh for £25 from brum so very doable. I'll find cheaper 😉
Other experiences were; got to sleep on a sleeper train, drove on another continent, saw the south madrid derby, walked to the rivals ground to soak in their victory, went to see real madrid, had a flat tyre in another country, got lost up the tizi n'tacheddirt in the cloud, got to see marrakesh at night & day & had my life threatened, twice, but learnt the con and next time I'll tell 'nice' guy to fuck off, saw camels, ostriches, ate spanish and moroccan food, so many olives 🤤, got diarrhoea from drinking African water, got trapped in thunderstorm up toubkal, saw many sunsets, and sunrises, rode the madrid and Barcelona underground's and trains, saw Barcelona at day & night. Experienced Madrid, Barcelona, Tangier, Marrakesh, Imlil, got to road trip Africa, found filthy cheap flights for the lot, made new friends & took mad photos with the mad currency.
Its been eventful, fun, had ups, downs, but tiring as it always is.
For me, & people don't get this, from where I've been, the world's a cheap place, it's only the UK, Ireland & Iceland where you pay to live. £73 to fill my car up in England compared to £15 in morocco.
Next up, rysy be calling 🇵🇱 🇸🇰 🇭🇺 🇨🇿

Some places just steal your heart more than others 💚
So we have visited Koh Tao for a first time around 24 months ago after our spiritual but exhausting 4000 km trip in India. Koh Tao was our first tropical island we went to together , our passion for photography has born in this place and we understood that one day we will start travelling full time. We were so in love with this little beauty 💙 that 2 years later we came back with family to celebrate my birthday and do scuba diving course. Now we made decision to follow our dreams and passion 🥰
With no doubt Koh Tao is a life changer for us. Tell us what place have such an impact on you or simply what else Thai islands we should visit ?? ( so far we have been to: Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Koh Lanta, Phi Phi )
I came to the orchids gardens here in Singapore as a child and I completely fell in love.
In my 10 year old mind, It felt like the biggest, most beautiful place in the world. 💐🌍 I used to joke around and say my second marriage would be here. 😂 (first Versailles, duh! I was a big dreamer then)
It’s funny to come back years later, much older and still have the same amount of admiration for this place💕
“After the hurricane last year, black and white Puerto Rican flags began to pop up around the island. They were displayed as a sign of protest for some while for others, they were a sign that the storm stripped away the beauty of the island.
On Fortaleza Street, in Old San Juan, the colorful umbrellas have been installed during the summer season, giving this street a festive air and over a year later, those who remain on the island say the storm may have knocked them down, but it will never strip away their true colors.”
