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.

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.

7 Spanish Markets to explore with your senses

March 4th, 2015

Traditionally a hub of meetings and exchanges, markets have always been the place for people of towns and cities to buy their basic necessities. Nowadays, despite the growth of other businesses, many of these markets have become must-see architectural treasures, restored for enjoyment which goes beyond simply buying the quality products which they offer. In addition to being beautiful to look at, to touch, to smell, to taste and to listen to the hustle and bustle; the market still embodies the traditonal community feel and connects directly with the essence of the city.
