When you enter someone’s home and the first thing you see is a stuffed white bear wearing necklaces, you know it’s a strange place. That was indeed my first thought when I entered Salvador Dali house museum in Cadaqués. Taxidermy is a very important concept in Dali’s idea of home decor. There are several stuffed birds [...]

That Time I Had a 10 Course Dinner

Posted on 24. Feb, 2012 by .

One of the many reasons to visit Spain, outside the dramatic scenery and friendly locals, is the concept of tapas. Tapas are all about sharing - plates of finger-food are usually served in the middle of the table, and enjoyed with drinks and friends. The concept has spread all around Spain and beyond, but every [...]

Beautiful, Colorful, Romantic Girona

Very little people actually know much about Catalonia, except for Barcelona. Independence? Costa Brava? Wineries? What? I was one of these people. And after spending 5 days in the region, I am somewhat ashamed of the very little knowledge I had before, and kind of sad that I didn’t visit before… because in case you didn’t [...]

I consider myself a very lucky travel blogger - I do work very hard to achieve these things, but going on a press trip in Spain, courtesy of Charming Villas Catalonia, is simply amazing.

Back in 2009, I spent a fair amount of time touring through the highlights of Andalusia, one of the most stunning European regions I have had the chance to visit. The landscapes, the beaches, the tapas, the people… it was nothing short of amazing! What were my favorite places, you wonder? Read on. Torremolinos beach. Very [...]

Exploring the Moorish Architecture at the Alhambra

My last trip to Spain was absolutely not planned in advance. It was a total spur of the moment kind of vacation, due to a simple Facebook status change from two of my long lost friends. They had just moved to Granada! And since the February thick clouds over London had me longing for some [...]

I’ve been going through my travel photos pretty often lately. Winter blues? Wanderlust? Nostalgia? All of the above are accurate. Instead of writing another long post on why I hate travel bloggers, I decided to share my favourite photos from my own collection and spread the love. While most of these pictures aren’t perfect on [...]

An Unexpected Wonder in Cuenca

While most people think Cuenca is in Ecuador (well, they’re right, but that’s not the one I want to talk about here), there’s actually another, lesser known homonym. The Cuenca that had me at loss of words is located two hours east of Madrid. A bit in the middle of nowhere, really. But it just [...]

24 Hours in Cordoba

Cordoba is a very special place in the world; not many cities can claim to have been the capital of a Roman province and the capital of an Arab state and a Caliphate. If you plan on visiting in May, do note that accommodation will be hard to find and very expensive. Consider taking a [...]
