What do YOU think of when you think of Belfast? For me all I could think is a troubled past, Titanic and the well known natural phenomenon Giants Causeway. Other than that I had no idea what I was going to discover on my visit and my expectations were low, which is a good thing, but what’s better is that they were exceeded. Like through the roof!
As you may know, Belfast is in Northern Ireland which is part of the United Kingdom, my current home. What I loved about visiting Belfast was that I needed to hop on a plane so it gave me the feeling I was travelling abroad when I actually wasn’t. That might be you too! Let me walk you through my own personal recommendations on how to spend your time in Belfast.
WONDERFUL THINGS TO DO IN BELFAST
Hop-on; hop-off Belfast’s main sites
A great way to start your trip is to take a hop-on; hop-off bus across all Belfast city top attractions. It’s the perfect way to get started and get an overview of the city if you are short on time and an efficient way to get around the furthest away sites. I took this one with Belfast City Tours and loved it. It stops on 19 sites (many which I feature below) and pricing wise it’s great. Book it here, or below:
As I stepped foot in Istanbul, I instantly fell under the enchanting spell of this vibrant city that bridges Europe and Asia. Istanbul, with its rich history, diverse culture, and breathtaking architecture, offers an immersive travel experience like no other. From the bustling markets to the majestic mosques, every corner reveals a story waiting to be discovered.
Although it may not seem like it when you arrive, Istanbul has so much to see and enjoy. It’s a lot bigger than meets the eye, anddefinitely bigger than Sultanahmet (Old Town) where most tourists limit themselves to.
WONDERFUL THINGS TO DO IN ISTANBUL
Get acquainted to the city with a walking tour
I usually start all my big city trips with a walking tour so I can plan my remaining time more efficiently, and have an local in hand to ask all the really important questions, like how to get around or better where do I buy the best Turkish Delight?!
Buenos Aires is my city! I was born and lived 23 years in Buenos Aires. Without much further ado, these are the 20 best things to do and see in Buenos Aires. I also include detail on some of the things you must eat when in Buenos Aires and where. Welcome to my Buenos Aires bucket list!
Buenos Aires Bucket List
Have “asado” in a “parilla”
You might find it weird that I’m including this first, specially given that I am now a vegan. But our asado (barbecue) is just such a big part of our culture and it would be stupid to not suggest this to meat eaters. Asado brings Argentina’s friends and families together, and it is done so much differently from anywhere in the world. Argentineans eat most of the cow in asados, not only the meat, but what we call “achuras”. Chinchulines (intestines), chorizo (thick sausage), molleja (gizzard), morcilla (blood sausage) are some of them. If you are visiting Buenos Aires for one day only, make a point of having asado. It’s definitely one of the main attractions in Buenos Aires. The best places for asado are La Cabrera followed by Don Julio both in the neighborhood of Palermo and then La Brigada in San Telmo.
Hi, I’m Paula! I’m a travel blogger, and also a gym aficionado. I mostly lift heavy weights, but love all forms of exercise. Fanka is related to Vivaia which I did a review for after receiving their items and they are my favourite shoes. So I decided to give Fanka a try. Photos below are from the exact leggings I bought.
WHAT IS FANKA?
Fanka, a brand deeply committed to fabricnology, takes activewear to a whole new level. As I explore the essence of Fanka, it becomes evident that this is a brand with a vision, a mission, and a passion for empowering women through fabricnology – a term coined by Fanka to describe their unique approach.
A Fusion of Fabric and Technology
Fanka is more than just an activewear brand; it’s a fusion of fabric and technology, a marriage between comfort and style, and a commitment to quality that shines through its products. The team at Fanka is described as “maniacs” for quality fabric and design, which immediately sets the tone for the level of dedication they bring to their craft. They dive headfirst into extensive research and development, ensuring that each product, including the “Body Sculpt Leggings – Reversible Wear,” is carefully and patiently produced with their own stories woven into them. This level of attention to detail is promising, suggesting that every piece of activewear carries a piece of the brand’s soul.
Performance as a Guiding Principle
Performance is the cornerstone of Fanka’s philosophy. They believe that performance makes everything better, and this belief is embedded in their innovation processes. Each step in the development of their activewear is dedicated to finding the best fabric performance, with a clear aim to make women feel comfortable, convenient, versatile, and radiant in every aspect of their lives. This approach is refreshing; it’s not just about looking good but also about feeling confident and empowered.

One of the standout features of Fanka activewear, including the “Body Sculpt Leggings – Reversible Wear,” is the emphasis on comfort. These leggings offer a skin-like texture and high elasticity, ensuring that you can move freely and confidently.

With Fanka’s high-quality fabric, you not only look good but also feel good while wearing these leggings. The reversible design adds versatility to your activewear collection, allowing you to switch up your style effortlessly.
Booty Lift and Tummy Control
The “Body Sculpt Leggings – Reversible Wear” are not just leggings; they’re a confidence booster. Fanka‘s SensELAST 3D technology gives your booty an instant 15° lift and ensures they stay in the right position all the time. Additionally, these leggings offer 360° tummy control, thanks to the high elastic and durable fabric with compression. You can look and feel fantastic while wearing them, whether you’re hitting the gym or going about your daily activities.
Revolutionary Training Support
Fanka‘s commitment to supporting your fitness journey goes beyond aesthetics. The 3D Tech used in these leggings provides muscle support by facilitating specific muscle circulation, minimising muscle soreness. They also offer knee support, reducing joint impact and knee pain while enhancing balance and stability. So not only do you look great, but you also get the support you need during your workouts.
Fast Recovery and Advanced Fabric Technology
The 4-way stretch fabric used in the “Body Sculpt Leggings” provides an impressive 85-95% recovery rate compared to the standard 65-75% recovery rate of typical leggings fabrics. This means that your leggings maintain their shape and performance even after intense use. Fanka’s SensELAST 3D Sculpting Tech combines polymers and elastomers to offer precise control of elasticity and adhesion while maintaining excellent resilience and resistance.
Reversible Wear for Versatility
The “Body Sculpt Leggings – Reversible Wear” feature a 2-in-1 design with a print side and a solid side, making them reversible and perfect for comfortable wear. Both sides are designed to fit snugly on your legs, allowing you to focus on your activities without any distractions.
WHAT ELSE DID YOU GET IN FANKA?
I got the matching top to the leggings and a lose t-shirt. Both are excellent! I don’t like to work out in a sports bra so the t-shirt was a great acquisition.
