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.…

The Big Move – Another Neighbourhood


This is more of a photo essay than a real blog post. Join us for a walk in our new neighbourhood! As I said in the previous blog post, Lars and I moved to Churriana de la Vega, a lively small town, 7 kilometres to the west of Granada. This time we live only a few steps away from the…

The Big Move – Competa


It took us some months, but Lars and I finally did it: pay a visit to the neighbouring wine town of Competa. It wasn’t the drive towards it nor its location in the mountains that was difficult: getting rid of your car is. After some minutes of wandering in the streets, you arrive at the central square, home to some fine…

The Big Move – El Morche


So far, we have shared pictures of Torrox (the village) and Torrox Costa, but there is a third part, called El Morche. It counts about 2100 inhabitants and is home to beautiful beaches. 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…

Touch, Feel, Hug, Learn – El Refugio del Burrito


A couple of months ago, Lars and I visited El Refugio del Burrito (the Donkey Refuge) in Fuente de Piedra (not far from the Flamingo Lake). Established in 2003, it is actually a subsidiary of The Donkey Sanctuary in the UK. El Refugio del Burrito monitors about 350 donkeys and mules. Some of them were awaiting us upon our arrival. You need to…
