The Floating Museum in Bayona, Galicia

I love museums, particularly those where the exhibits are not locked away behind bullet-proof glass and cordoned off from the visitors, but can rather be approached and enjoyed up close and personal. The replica of the caravel “Pinta,” anchored in the port of Bayona, Spain perfectly fits the bill. The three masted caravel, the second biggest of the three ships Columbus took on his first crossing of the Atlantic in 1492,...

Over the “Moon” in La Coruna, Spain

Tired feet, dirty laundry, packing and unpacking, hopping on and off buses and trains..after two and a half weeks of all that, exploring Galicia in the North of Spain, mostly off the beaten track, I was in dire need of a rest and a few days of R&R in a nice hotel in La Coruna. I was more than happy, when, surfing the net in search of not too expensive but conveniently situated accommodation, I discover the Hotel Moon. I...

The name of Camarinas is forever associated with the “Serpent” an English ship which...

The Missing Brick of Pontedeume, Spain

On my way, exploring the entire region, I arrived in Pontedeume, which is located half way between La Coruna and Ferrol following the coast line. The decidedly quaint town, with its cobblestoned streets, steep hills, stone houses and friendly atmosphere is the starting point of the nature reserve of Deume, a hikers and...

The Boot of Cap Finisterre, Spain

I have just come back from a four week trip criss-crossing of Galicia in the north of Spain. Compared to the popular south, the northern province is vastly underrated, which is totally unjustified given the many beautiful landscapes, interesting history, legends and myths Galicia has to offer. At every twist and turn I can discovered something new and unexpected sights just waiting to be admired. There are the peaceful ´rias´of the...

Something about La Rioja

I love to search for charming little places around the world, the type that do not usually fall under the average tourist’s wish-list, places I wish I could savour all by myself and hide from all you other thirsty travelers out there. But, alas, here I am in the magical wine region of La Rioja in Spain, and I am about to-very reluctantly may I say-divulge my precious secret to all. How selfless of me. Or maybe, it could be the...
