Frouxeira

It’s that time of the year for travelling and we’ve chosen a place which is very special for us. A land full of magic, a natural paradise: Galicia. Its gastronomy, traditions, beautiful locations and its genuine people give this area in the northwest of Spain a special and unique personality. Let me brag a little about “mina terra” (my hometown). They say that an image is worth a thousand words so I’m going to take you on a tour from north to south of the best beaches of La Coruna. I hope this will encourage all of you who are thinking of getting away for…

Aún sabiendo que nos quedamos cortos, os dejamos algunos…

Summer is ending and that feeling of going back to work / school is creeping up on us! Don’t worry, it will only take a few days to get back into your daily routine. It’s a good idea to start getting your things in order a couple of days before your “rentree”, as the French call it. Se acaba el verano y esa sensación que nos entra al tener que volver al trabajo/estudios se empieza a apoderar de nosotros. No te preocupes que en sólo cuatro o cinco días estarás de vuelta a la rutina. Es una buena idea poner…
