Andalusia

Nerja – The jewel of Costa del Sol – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part XII.

Anna: We were already on the road for many days, and unfortunately, the time came to turn into home-direction, and from Sevilla to decide which road we are taking to head back to Catalunya, and in the end to Barcelona city. Since the majority of the trip we spent in-land, I really wanted to choose …

Sevilla

Sevilla 2. – A bike tour plan, under the Andalusian sun – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part XI.

Dani: Something I really like from Sevilla is to have breakfast outside under the sun. Coffee with milk and toasted bread with high-quality oil and ham. That is possible to get all-around Spain if you ask for, but in Sevilla, it is a very well-developed concept. Nice products and amazing shinny sun almost 300 hundred …

Sevilla 1. – “¡Hombre, dame vino de naranja o por la sombra!” – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part X.

Anna: We were driving from Jerez to Sevilla direction, it’s not more than 100 km distance, you can easily take it in 1 and half hour maximum. But it was crazy warm. Yes, yes everyone has an idea of summertime. And personally me, I love summer, I love hot weather, the neverending days, spending almost …

Jerez

Jerez de la Frontera – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part IX.

Dani: When I thought about Jerez, motorbike races, horsemanship and Fino wines came to my mind. But it is much more than that. We arrived to Jerez in the afternoon. We had booked a room in front of the Cathedral de San Salvador de Jerez, so we did not expect to reach the hotel door …

Ronda Besides the Obvious

Ronda – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part VI.

Dani: We arrived at siesta time. It is not a stereotype, it seemed to be true judging by how empty the streets of the historic centre of the city were, in full sun, around four in the afternoon. We did not think of spending a lot of time in the city and of course that …

setenil

Setenil de las Bodegas. Life under the rocks – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part V.

Anna: Our next stop happened to be in Setenil de las Bodegas. If you have never heard of this place, first just take a look to its photos, incredible! Most likely you wouldn’t doubt either, especially since it was on our way, that of course we couldn’t have missed this place out. We arrived in …

Casares Besides the Obvious

Espejo & Casares – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part IV.

Anna: During those days I was in a big preparation and in a secret planning mood. We were already on the go for several days, and we still had many kilometres ahead of us. The lovely reason of my excitement was that we had Dani’s birthday ahead of us, and I couldn’t wait to celebrate …

Nerja Besides the Obvious

Mi Nerja: returning after 23 years

June 1996, Becehegy, Hungary I remember the day, like it was yesterday, we needed to wake up early and leave to Budapest to the airport on time in order to reach our flight. I had already packed my luggage the day before, carefully chosen my cool teenager outfit, in which afterwards I was of course …

Potage de Garbanzos Besides the Obvious

Potaje de garbanzos – Andalusian Chickpea and Spinach Soup 😋

I’m a big fan of cooking and trying new recipes when traveling, and then preparing, recreating them at home. Besides that, I’m even bigger fan of soups, that are based on beans, lentils or like in case of this recipe, chickpeas. Since I’m living in Barcelona, I already tried and tasted many amazing Catalan dishes, …
