My Recent Journey To Barcelona
"With Barcelona’s mix of culture and modernity, there is something that appeals to everyone. Personally, I was greatly rewarded for resisting the decadent shopping temptations of Central Barcelona. Not only did I enjoy the Born Neighbourhood with its abundance of small, traditional shops selling handcrafted items, I also found one in particular (Happ Barcelona) that is part shop, part bazaar, part busy artists. The mix of shopping and enjoying art in the making was splendid. That night, I had dinner at the famous Lola & Lo Restaurant in the Raval neighbourhood where I watched as the tranquil Barcelona of the day gives way to a boisterous party scene come night-time. The best part? I was right in the thick of it!"
An intriguing visit to Toledo
"With only three days in Toledo, we relied upon a guide hired through the tour company Rutas de Toledo a few metres away from the vegetarian restaurant Madre Tierra we visited when we first arrived in the city. Underground tours, night-time routes with legends and mysteries, themed tours and more; with Rutas de Toledo's help, we discovered much about the magic and history of Toledo! After completing the guided tour, we sampled a delicious couscous at the Cristo de la Cruz Teahouse. Over a delicious mint tea, we decided that we would do a bike tour. The next day, we rented a bike from Anticiclón, which also kindly told us about the many options for exploring nature on the outskirts of the city. We chose the Quijote Route, which took us through many beautiful spots, and we didn’t miss the chance to go round part of Toledo along the Tagus. Exhausted after much walking and cycling, we spent our last day relaxing. We visited the surrounding towns of Toboso, Consuegra, and Guadamur by car, before finally capping off our trip at the spectacular B&B Ático-terraza Imperialm."
My Recent Journey to Madrid
"Finding Madrid as alluring as travellers do today, the Habsburg royals chose the city for their capital in the 16th century, creating one of Madrid’s great draws with ***Buen Retiro Park***. Inside the park, I couldn’t help but marvel at architectural masterpieces such as the Palacio de Cristal (Glass Palace), a 19th century greenhouse-esque glass and iron construction and the zoo Casa de Fieras (House of Beasts). The Habsburg royals further enhanced the park’s beauty by lining the park’s many paths Baroque sculptures, including a the sinister but ever-enticing Ángel Caído (Fallen Angel). So, take a walk, and when you get hungry, don’t forget to try the food in the nearby restaurants; you’ll be pleasantly surprised!"
