A Celebration in Canillas de Albaida


For 3 months now Lars and I have been trying to visit Competa, a picturesque wine town about 10 kilometres to the north of Torrox (where we live, in case you forgot…).

Tapas in Colmenar


Lars and I were driving around in the mountains to the north of Malaga when we suddenly became hungry and thirsty… So we stopped in Colmenar, a pretty white village with Moorish origins.

Staying in Hotel Am Wannsee


During our stay in Berlin, we called Hotel Am Wannsee our temporary home. The hotel is conveniently located next to the Wannsee station, which is both a train and an S-Bahn station. In less than 20 minutes you can find yourself in the heart of Berlin. However, this advantage can also be a disadvantage: if you happen to have a…

Throwback Thursday – When Things Go Wrong in Greece


We have done the Transfagarasan. We have done the Stelvio Pass. Thus, in the Summer of 2015, Lars thought we were ready for the next challenge: driving to the top of Mount Olympos. It was going to be the adventure of our lives. A challenge to our fear of heights. Thrilling. Dangerous! On that beautiful morning, I looked longingly at…
