Granada Cathedral


I am seriously considering going back to daily blogging – or maybe at least for a short while  -, because Lars and I have so much to share! And with spring in full swing here, we are busy exploring our surroundings several times a week; the province of Granada really has a lot to offer and so far, we have…

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.…

Or as their website says: The Serrano Mira family covers a vineyard heritage of 300 hectares of vineyards, aged between 20 and 60 years old and…

Being Foodies In Estremoz – Part 1


After our Peniche/Nazaré adventures, Lars and I decided to go east, to a charming town called Estremoz: I had never been this far inland in Portugal. Anyway, we arrived there late in the afternoon, quickly found a hotel just outside the town and then went looking for food. The restaurant of the hotel was still closed, so went into Estremoz…

When It Doesn’t Click, You Eat


During our visit to Nazaré, we stayed in a place called Peniche: Somehow, Lars and I had high hopes about this town. Our travel guide described it as picturesque but we found it to be … boring and overcrowded. Maybe it was also the bad weather; it was cloudy most of the time. Maybe it was the fair that attracted…
