Gran Canaria - 10.mogan

A patchwork of landscapes with a variety of microclimates, Gran Canaria is considered by the UNESCO as a biosphere reserve. We cross the island from North to South to personally confirm it deserves this recognition. As it is impossible to include everything, following are a few of the emblematic places we were able to enjoy. Gran Canaria, un mosaico de paisajes y variedad de microclimas, es considerada por la UNESCO como reserva de la Biosfera. Digna merecedora de tal reconocimiento, recorremos la isla de norte a sur y lo comprobamos en primera persona.

what to see in Barcelona - One day in Barcelona

A Cosmopolitan, Mediterranean city full of life, culture and beauty. I’d definitely spend days walking through the streets of this city without getting bored but…..we only have one day in Barcelona. We stroll along the Barceloneta, the most popular seaside neighborhood of the city. Our first stop is Bogatell Beach to eat at Xiringutio Escribà. Located on the waterfront, it is famous for its paella and desserts – the owner is a well known pastry chef.

Favourite clothes - BenchBags Blog

The first thing that comes to mind when you think of Fashion is how to follow the trends that designers establish for each season and adapt them as much as possible to your own style. Magazines, bloggers, television….they all tell you what you must have in your closet. For me, however, fashion is much more than what you’re “supposed” to wear. It’s a means of expressing yourself in a free manner; it’s a reflection of your own personality. Therefore, I’ve carried out a small survey in which I’ve asked several people to define their favourite clothes – the garment they really identify with and consider…
