The Road to Otivar


Yesterday the weather was so fine that Lars and I decided to go for a long – and spectacular! – drive, but more about that next week. Anyway, that’s the reason there was no post yesterday. We found the mountain road to Otivar by coincidence… In a nutshell: we wanted to drive to a lake and ended up in the…

Cooling Down at the Los Bermejales Reservoir


Granted, the really hot days haven’t arrived yet, but when they do, this is one of the places I would like to go to. This is the Los Bermejales Reservoir, created in 1952. It’s located to the southwest of Granada; you can reach it by traversing Churriana de la Vega, Las Gabias, La Malaha, Fuentes de la Huelma and Agron.…

Located on a hill, overlooking a lagoon, I thought that Cacela Velha would be…

By the way, Lars and I took these pictures last week. As you can see, we are still having very nice weather here with temperatures easily reaching 22…

The Big Move – On The Beach


This is more of a short photo essay than a real post today… There are several beaches in Torrox Costa, all of them with fine grey sand and (quite some) pebbles near the shore break. I also took pictures near the lighthouse. The beach you see here in all the pictures is at the centre of Torrox Costa. In July…

A Sea of Bluebells


552 ha (or 1.360 acres) of forest and bluebells: that is the best way to describe the Hallerbos. As the name suggests, the forest is located in Halle, not far from Brussels. The famous bluebells are in season from mid-April until the beginning of May and attract tens of thousands of visitors from all over the world. Lars and I…
