How to travel to Cuba as a tourist

February 4, 2020

Do I need a visa? Yes. When you book your flights you should be directed to a website that can organise the visa for you. It costs around $100 each which you pay for online. I think you can also purchase the visa at the airport before you fly but I always prefer to get…

Inside Vizcaya, Miami – USA

November 4, 2018

I have been to Vizcaya several times for photoshoots but this is the first time I really explored the inside and it did not disappoint. It reminds me a lot of Versailles in Paris, but just a smaller more Italian version! At the entrance, there is a large open space with glass panels on the…

Rosie Andre. Travel Blog. Umbrella Sky, Coral Gables. USA. (Miami, Florida, wanderlust, travel, explore, globe, world, earth, Giralda Plaza)

Umbrella Sky, Coral Gables – USA

September 16, 2018

The Umbrella Sky Project is a travelling art installation which has previously been in Paris & Lisbon. It arrived in Miami on June 13th 2018 and will only be here for a couple more weeks (until September 16th 2018 I think) so if you’re in Miami or will be visiting soon, go go go! The…

Volunteering in Panama

April 28, 2018

*** Before I start talking about this, I just want to quickly say that I have not included any photographs of the children in the orphanage as I didn’t take any photographs while I was there. I didn’t take any photographs as Ana advised me not to as to protect the children’s identities, locations and…

Red Frog Beach – Panama

March 13, 2018

Red Frog Beach is one of those places that you read about and it sounds incredible, but when you are actually there, it kind of doesn’t live up to the expectations and isn’t as incredible as you had read. I mean, there is nothing wrong with it, don’t get me wrong, but I have been…

Under Cover, Panama City – Panama

March 1, 2018

Whilst walking around Casco Viejo’s old and crumbling streets, I came across the shop Under Cover. I was instantly drawn to the bright colours, wide range of products and then the owner Maria. We talked about my photography, my blog and why I am in Panama and she told me about herself, visiting England and…

Casco Viejo – Panama

February 23, 2018

Casco Viejo is the old town of Panama City and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. This might come as a surprise, especially since we went to actual paradise, the San Blas islands and spent time with the Kuna Indians.. but.. I think Casco Viejo is my favourite part of Panama so…

Kuna Indians – Panama

February 17, 2018

Since I knew we were going to visit Panama for 6 weeks, the first thing I wanted to do was visit the San Blas Islands. Firstly, because they look like actual paradise (read my blog post here) and secondly I wanted to see the culture for myself. I had seen the photographs and coming from…

San Blas Tours – Panama

February 15, 2018

If you are looking for Paradise – honestly, look no further. This place could not be any more perfect if it tried. Ok, maybe I would change a couple of things, but it comes pretty damn close to perfection! If you love white beaches, crystal clear waters, culture, relaxation and a ‘back to basics’ way…

9 things that surprised me about Miami – USA

January 26, 2018

We have been in Miami for a little over a month now and I wanted to talk about the top 9 things that surprised me about being here. It has been a culture shock and not what we expected at all, not that that’s a bad thing at all! We love how diverse and different…

1 hour in Borough Market, London – England

December 13, 2017

I recently spent a couple of days in London and wanted to visit places I had never been to before. Borough Market was one of them. I have only ever heard good things about the place and people so wanted to see and experience it all for myself. “I come here because of the people…

Richmond Park, London – England

December 7, 2017

I’ve been to London lots of times in my life either visiting friends, family or on holidays. I love London and all the touristy things to do. But this time, I wanted to visit places I have never been to before. So on the first day in London, myself and Karen spent the day in…

Pasta in Piacenza – Italy

November 30, 2017

My brother lives in Austria and flights from Marseille to anywhere close to him costs around €400. So, rather than paying all that money for my husband and I to fly there, we drove. We drove through Italy and arrived in Austria in the evening after spending the day in the car. To break up…

Pont du Gard – France

November 28, 2017

Pont du Gard! What a beauty! My husband and I have wanted to visit this bridge for several years now and finally got round to it when a friend was visiting us for the weekend. It’s a shame we didn’t come in Summer to enjoy it in the heat and splash around in the water.…

La Citadelle, Saint Tropez – France

November 25, 2017

La Citadelle of Saint Tropez is situated on a small hill behind the town and port. I came here when visiting Saint Tropez on a solo day trip. Read my other blog post here. La Citadelle is a little walk away from the centre of town but it is very easy to access. There is…

St Victoire – France

November 9, 2017

I have lived in Provence for around 5 years now and have always wanted to go up to the top of the famous St Victoire. I have had picnics around the bottom several times and once made it up to the refuge. But never to the top – until now! The St Victoire is a…

Tarragona – Spain

November 7, 2017

I went to Spain to spend a weekend at Port Aventura with some friends. We stayed in Salou, which I wouldn’t recommend as it was a horrible tourist spot with tacky souvenirs and gross English people! But anyway, we went to Cadaques on the Friday for a couple of hours. Spent Saturday at Port Aventura. And…

Cadaqués – Spain

October 31, 2017

Cadaqués is a beautiful town on the North East coast of Spain. It is further North than Barcelona and is actually really close to the French border. We stopped here for a couple of hours on our way to Salou for a weekend in Port Aventura. Cadaqués is famous for being where Salvador Dali was…

Coulée Verte René-Dumont, Paris – France

October 30, 2017

After visiting Rue Cremieux, I wandered around the neighbouring areas without a destination in mind. I stumbled across the Coulée Verte René-Dumont which is an elevated linear park situated on an old railway. It is sometimes known as the “Promenade Plantée” too. The park stretches 4.7km over Paris with views over the Parisian buildings and life…

Rue Cremieux, Paris

October 29, 2017

Rue Cremieux (Crémieux in French) is Paris’ version of London’s Notting Hill. The houses on Rue Cremieux are very cute, bright, colourful and full of fun! Each house has its own personality and charm. It’s a lovely little road to walk down, situated next to Gare de Lyon. It’s very tucked away and hard to…

Disneyland Paris – France

October 27, 2017

I’m not a huge Disney fan. I mean I watched the films when I was younger but I’m not obsessed like it seems everybody else is. But when we were in Paris for the weekend, we decided we should go. We have already seen a lot of Paris, but had never been to Disneyland, so…

An afternoon in Paris – France

October 24, 2017

I went to Paris for a long weekend with my husband to see one of our friends before the big move to the USA. I haven’t seen him in over a year so it was really nice to spend some time with him again after so long! We lived in Paris around 5 years ago…
