Gods beauty in the form of Shannon & Limerick, Ireland

Four leaf clovers, Irish men and Gods beauty! I didn’t need to wait until St. Patricks day to get “lucky”, I hopped on a flight with my dear friend Sylvia and 7 hours later Gods beauty was within my reach… This was one of the most amazing places I’ve traveled, pure natural beauty.

      Hello Ireland!!!

I had the pleasure at lodging at the beautiful Absolute Hotel. The canal and neighboring views of rustic buildings were a bonus in this modern gem.

The staff were very friendly and professional, they arranged a driver for us who by the way was amazing and knew the history and facts in which he shared plenty.

The most break taking part of the tour was the Cliffs of Moher. Pulling up this to historic masterpiece without knowing  the outcome one would think they were driving up to a former medieval site prepared to tour castles or something of that nature.

In route to the cliff we ran into some ladies from Georgia.

It’s a little walk from the parking lot, but oh the blessing you get after walking a mile up stairs and hills.

The Cliffs of Moher!!!!!! Such a beauty!!! I did not want to leave.

After our breathtaking tour we headed to the Locke Bar and Oyster to have a traditional Irish dinner.

I enjoyed the Fillet of Hake with lemon butter sauce and chive mash.

I tried other local favorites sent to the table from locals, I was busy entertaining and be thankful I didn’t get any pictures but everything was delicious.

I left full and satisfied.

I enjoyed my time in Ireland and as I type this post I’m planning a retreat in my head to get back. It’s a perfect location to go and gather your thoughts, regroup and just bask in Gods beauty.

Luxury Mediterranean Escape

Breathtaking view of Gods beauty… This location will please everyone of your guest for sure.  I was in awe from the time we pulled up to the Hotel Arts Barcelona to the moment we were boarding the plane.

Barcelona Beach

The architectural design of this building is beyond amazing… I’m having withdrawals as I type this post.

Hotel Barcelona is by far in my top ten hotels.  💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋

They did not cut any corners, everything you think you might possibly need during your Barcelona stay is within your reach including but not limited to a full service spa, boutiques, car rentals, amazing views from every angle and the best tasting mouth watering tantalizing blue cheese burger I’ve ever had in my life!!

The best of Girona, Catalonia, Spain

When planning a destination wedding , special occasion , a retreat or just a get a way to meditate, relax and bask in the Glory of Gods beauty there’s so many known choices out there.. When you think of Spain immediately Barcelona or Madrid comes to mind…. Well nestled away right outside of Barcelona you will find Catolonia.. There you will find Gods beauty at it’s best.. Sara & Richard the owners of Charming Villas are fortunate to be the ambassadors of the charms I had the pleasure of visiting, embracing and allowing into my heart.

Richard and Sara didn’t cut any corners in hosting us during our trip. From private tours of the Dalí museum, Jewish Quarters, Roman age Cathedrals, Medieval Villages, Castles and Gothic Churches –we were able to experience Catalonia in such a remarkable way. Fine dining was one of the many perks to say the least I had to go on a diet upon return… Endless Potatoes, Bread, Olive oil and Wine were at a constant reach! I did not have one bad meal. Tours aside the highlights of the trip were the times we were at the various luxurious estates ran by Charming Villas. Each villa has it’s own style and the scheduled activities were well suited in their own right. From wine tasting, to slumber parties by the fire to locals hosting Catalan dinners and Calcotadas.<which I am still drooling over….those charcoaly (nope it’s not a word) morsals were so delicious! The experience was so dirty and delicious!! < I am still in awe from the total experience and if you are looking to host a destination……(make-up something it’s totally worth it) you can have the same experience and more…
