When we arrived in Tangalla after a pretty long bus ride from Ella in the hill country we were ready to RELAX. Beer, beach, sunset… that sort of thing.

ubud market

Ubud Market

On a Saturday and Sunday evening there are plenty of street musicians, drama groups and dancers putting on shows.

La Boqueria Market, Barcelona

La Boqueria Market in Barcelona is, without a doubt, one of the best food markets in Spain.

Santa Maria Market

Santa Maria Market

One of my favourite markets in Mallorca is Santa Maria Market. For a start, Santa Maria itself is a really beautiful inland town in Mallorca from where the views of the countryside and the Serra de Tramuntana Mountains are gorgeous.
