One of my favourite Spanish dishes are Huevos Rotos (Broken Eggs). The preparation is very simple and the result is pretty rewarding. All the ingredients that you need are olive oil, potatoes, eggs and any cured meat of your choice. Ham and chorizo are my top options. Something salty or spicy puts a lot of […]

Last few days in Spain were intense and passed by like a flash. There was a lot we wanted to do and tons of places we wanted to visit but we had to decide how to end  our trip for now. We left Sevilla on Saturday with the intention of stopping by a couple of […]

I am sitting on my bed hearing the sound of the rain falling, the same rain that made me come back to the hostel and  finally find the time to write about our days in this lovely Andalusian city. We arrived last Monday fresh and rested from the Alpujarra. The first impression of the city […]

Being in the Sierra Nevada does good to your soul. I actually enjoyed visiting the mountains almost as much as I enjoy being close to the ocean and that is a lot to say. 🙂 Although I love nature I always preferred to be closer to the sea. Growing up, there was no summer in […]

Palau de la musica Catalana Barcelona

I always have a hard time leaving Barcelona and I believe it is due to the length of the stay in the city. The visits are always short and kind of rushed, besides in a town full of tourists it is difficult to find a special place and make it your own personal experience. This […]

Two Calçotadas in less than two weeks! We have been partying it up the Catalan way! 🙂 This time our friends invited some people over to have a barbecue/calcotada and then to walk to the beach to end the afternoon. It was just another reason to get together for a couple of beers, glasses of wine […]

Crema de Orujo, La Gran Pulperia Pozuelo, Madrid

I love eating and trying different types of food. I am not very conservative with what I consume so I will normally taste something new at a place following anyone’s recommendations. Many times I tried something I liked and found myself not remembering the name later. Because of my terrible memory regarding new words I […]

Pedraza Segovia Spain

I am convinced that Spain radiates beauty everywhere you go but the more I see and discover the more I am amazed with the country’s architecture, landscapes and history. Today we drove to Pedraza, the car travelled like a time machine taking us to the 11th century in Spain, a small town in the province […]

I have a little bit to write about this Spanish wine I tried for lunch and thought it was really good. I am not a wine connoisseur but here is the piece of info I gathered, while drinking it. 🙂 A pitarra is a clay container or “tinaja” used to store wine in the old days. Pitarra wine is […]

We have arrived in Madrid in an interesting time of changes, crisis and demonstrations. The day before yesterday thousands of people were out in a peaceful protest against cuts. Firemen, nurses and teachers of all ages were walking by Cibeles and towards Sol, holding big signs or flags representing them. Some of them were playing […]
