Top 10 Tips for Travel Photography

May 20th, 2015

Think of how you feel when you have just returned home from a holiday… You’re in two minds: on the one hand you are refreshed from having escaped your daily routine for a few days, but on the other hand you are finding it impossible to push out of your mind the idea of possibly never going back to those little pockets of paradise again which you had discovered during your holiday.

In fact, each one of our trips somewhere ends up being a mini fragment of our life story. Photographing our favourite spots, villages, landscapes, scenes which catch our eye or tiny details is the best way to make sure that these little memories are never ever forgotten.

Our Team Recommends, Part 5: An Oasis in the Mediterranean

May 13th, 2015

We are already so excited for it to start getting hotter! In the Muchosol offices we hear the words ‘sea’, ‘sun’ and ‘summer’ on a daily basis… so much so that it is no wonder that Mar from our marketing department couldn’t resist writing about an idyllic destination which embodies all these words in the fifth installment of ‘Our Team Recommends’.

Hey! To make the most of my favourite time of the year which is approaching, I would like to share with you a mediterranean paradise which tends to be not so well known, or doesn’t receive the recognition that it deserves.

Your ultimate guide to Spanish Festivals

May 6th, 2015

To quote the Lonely Planet, “Spaniards share a zest for the fest” and we couldn’t agree more. Spain’s events calendar is overflowing to the extent that no matter what day of the year it may be you could head to the Iberian Peninsula and more than likely be able to find a fiesta to attend, whether it be a huge event which dominates the city once a year or a low key traditional festival organised amongst neighbours in a village.

Taste authentic Valencian paella during your holiday

April 29th, 2015

During summer in Spain, as the days become longer, lighter and warmer, people begin to change their sleeping and eating habits. When the opportunity arises for a few days off, we are more likely to spend our time out and about, exploring and so consequently we eat out more in bars and restaurants rather than at home.

However, a problem arises when restaurants rip us off or try to pull the wool over our eyes which tends to happen when we order a typical and popular Spanish dish such as paella. Have you ever ordered the world famous Valencian paella in a restaurant, hungry and excited for a delicious lunch, and then been utterly disappointed when you are served what looks like some soggy rice, or to the other extreme something horribly dry and inedible?

5 city break ideas for your May Bank Holiday

April 14th, 2015

May is approaching and what a glorious month of the year it is. Spring is in full swing, the sun is shining, the flowers blooming and the lambs are springing through the fields. But just to make May even more wonderful, in the UK we have not one but two bank holidays, meaning that 2 out of Mays 4 weekends are long weekends. It’s impossible not to smile at that thought!

No free tables until 10.30pm?! – The Spanish Food Culture Explained

April 8th, 2015

It is no secret that Spain is very different from the UK; the climate, the people, and of course the food. The Spanish not only have a different cuisine with their wonderful mediterranean diet, but they also have very distinctive eating habits and times to the Brits.

There is no doubt that the Spanish love their food, to the extent that they eat up to 5 times a day, whipping the British 3 times a day out of the ballpark! But food culture in Spain is about so much more than eating. No, it’s about enjoying the company of your friends, good food, good wine or beer and most importantly good conversation: “sobremesa”. The closest translation into English would be something along the lines of table-talk and in Spain it can last for hours after a meal.

The Grand Canyon of Verdon: the most beautiful river canyon in Europe

Protected since 1990, as well as being named the Grand site de France by the Ministry of the Environment, Sustainable Development and Energy in order to promote the conservation of protected natural spaces, the Canyon of Verdon’s title as being the most beautiful canyon is Europe is well-deserved.
