The nature of Bilbao
On a trip as improvised as ours we couldn’t forget a bit of nature. Truth be told, coming from Valencia we find breathtakingly beautiful those towering mountains and deep forests from the north of Spain.   One morning we visited “La Arboleda” of Bilbao and its many lakes.

Three museums in a week
My holiday week was intense and, among many other things, I took the opportunity to drag Jon to one museum after another, to be more accurate three museums in nine days. The Prado Museum was the first one. I have family in Madrid and still I’d never visited the museum. We were spending the weekend in ...

A couple of days in Amsterdam
At last the summer is over (yes, I really mean it). I don’t get along very well with the heat and my relationship with the sun is even worse, and, unfortunately, we have a lot of sun and heat in summer here in Valencia. But not only because of that I am glad that this ...
