Travel without expectations is pretty much a rule I live by. Not studying any guidebooks nor researching are my personal extension to this rule. When we traveled to Cantabria and stayed at Molino Tejada, we had no idea a place like Orbaneja del Castillo even existed!
I feel privileged to get to discover the hidden gems of the world – the truly hidden ones. The only thing that makes it better is sharing them with you. Of course, hidden gems don’t come around in every trip but then they do, I get the best feeling!
Spain is many things: beach, bullfighting, and flamenco. What many tourists are unaware of is the rich heritage of northern Spain. Asturias in particular. We were looking for a weekend getaway somewhere we hadn’t been before. Oviedo, we thought, had the raw nature and mystique we live for.
Our first trip of 2018 was to Oviedo, a small mining city in Asturias, our new favourite destination in Spain. Cities in Northern Spain have a different vibe. Elegant, ancient, Oviedo has the best tapas we have tried and its rocky streets lead to wild nature.
The aura of Valencia will make you forget all your worries while preparing you to relax. I loved Valencia for its architecture and Mediterranean vibe, but now I love it for its coastal mild winter weather too. Even in countries like Spain, winter brings snow and heavy coats. Valencia is an oasis of warmth and peace where flowers shine colourful all year-round.
The countdown for New Year’s Eve is coming to an end, and wearing the right outfit is part of making it a memorable night. How the night ends is only up to you, but I can help you look pretty from minute one!
Whereas I dedicated a blog post to Mallorca as an island, now I want to talk to you about Palma de Mallorca,an incredibly beautiful little town where you will most certainly land.
As it gets colder in Madrid, I took my boyfriend to Mallorca for his birthday! We had never been there before and we like to be surprised so we didn’t do much research and just flew there!
Needless to say, we were MIND. BLOWN.
Toledo is a small, UNESCO heritage site near Madrid. It can be seen in one day but I would strongly recommend spending at least 1 night there. Keep reading and you will understand why.
Check out the best Hotels in Madrid!! I’m sure by now you already know I love Spain. Yes, I can’t deny! The more I travel the more I like it — you could say I’m addicted to it! This is why I have moved to Madrid, one of the most open and welcoming cities I…
One of its most beautiful places is the monument to King Alfonso I “El Batallador”, who reconquered the City of Zaragoza from Arabic ruling in the year 1118. It is at the top of the hill, offering stunning views of Zaragoza. I recommend going there at sunset.
If you are in Spain, a visit to Seville is mandatory. Andalucia has a special flavour but Seville is, no doubt, the epitome of Spanish elegance, colourful sights and beauty. I’m not surprised it’s one of Tripadvisor’s Traveller’s Choice for 2017.
