Today I’m going to concentrate on southern Europe food and the culinary delights on offer for the food-obsessed traveller. Food oh glorious food!
Ronda is an incredible sight with a rich historical heritage, hidden high in the Serrania de Ronda Mountains. Its natural drama will leave you breathless! It is a perfect one-day trip from Malaga. And it has everything that an ideal day trip should have, at least for me ha ha ha Spectacular views, small cobble-stoned streets to wander around, high-end cuisine and hundreds of local wine producers lol
I love Spain! It is my favourite country in Europe. If I were to add up all the days I spent this year in Spain it would be one-and-a-half months between Costa Brava (Barcelona, Montserrat, Girona, Figueres, Lloret and Tossa del Mar), the amazing Basque Country (San Sebastian and Bilbao), Mallorca and now Malaga and Ronda.
The north-western coast of Mallorca is an extremely picturesque region, dominated by Sierra de Tramontana, sparkling with pine forests, old villages and a spectacularly rugged coastline.
Palma, the capital city, is majestically located on a sickle-shaped bay. The pulsating heart of the Balearic Island, historical, touristy and political.
Guggenheim Museum, Palacio Euskalduna and the Isozaki Atea skyscrapers are dazzling symbols of the new, modern, artistic and really cool part of the Bilbao.
It is actually impossible not to fall in love with San Sebastian. There aren’t many places around the world that offers me everything my heart desired!
As a total zealot of Dali I couldn’t miss Figueres. This small town lies in the heart of Catalonia. Figueres was during the Spanish Civil War it served as the last Republican outpost to stand against Franco, nowadays there are only two reasons to visit it – the Dali Museum and one of the finest…
Girona – ‘the city of a thousand sieges’ thanks to the fact that it reputedly withstood many invasions by Napoleon, survived the Moorish and many others.
Tossa del Mar is very romantic. Old Town charms you up with a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets, beautiful squares, little bodegas and quaint cozy cafes.
