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…

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. Ciudad mediterránea y cosmopolita. Llena de vida, cultura y belleza. Sin duda, estaría días y días recorriendo sus calles sin dejar de sorprenderme, pero sin embargo, sólo tenemos un día.…
