Getaway Dirleton Castle

Once Edinburgh has been seen and having spent a few hours in charming North Berwick, it was time to start the route through Scotland. I planned a circular route with the aim of minimizing travel times. Due to its proximity to North Berwick, the first castle to visit is Dirleton Castle. Dirleton is a quiet little town. The houses are very well maintained. They have no...

Getaway Casa Batlló

It seems strange to me to name Casa Batlló as a Getaway. It is so close from home; but it is true that the visit itself is a real journey. In fact, as they themselves say, it is a unique immersive experience. And it is for many things. It is located in the middle of one of the most emblematic streets of Barcelona: Passeig de Gràcia. It was the street that linked...

Getaway Santa Eulàlia des Riu

Santa Eulàlia des Riu is to the east of Ibiza. As it is relatively close to the center (the port and the airport) and that it has many services, makes the area crowded. Despite that, you can still find amazing nooks. There are awesome BEACHES in this area: Es Pou des Lleó - It is a small and closed beach with a row of very cute boat houses. There are two restaurants...

The other Ibiza

When we think of Ibiza, clubbing, crazy partying and crowded beaches often come to mind. This is so because the reality is this; but there is also another Ibiza. The great unknown. The one that few seek and fewer find. There are still nooks where you can enjoy the most authentic island. There are many BEACHES; but four stole my heart. They have own soul and they are...

Getaway around Knoxville

My "wish list" of destinations to visit is huge and Knoxville just isn't there. Neither had it located on the map, nor was there anything in the area that caught my attention. But I had a personal event and I decided to spend three days there. I flew, with a small American company, from Newark International Airport (New Jersey) to McGhee Tyson Airport, located in the...

Getaway Kalahari Desert

I arrived in Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, with a Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt. I was picked up from Hosea Kutako airport and drove to "Zebra Kalahari Lodge".  The road is wonderful. It is a relatively comfortable and very wide unpaved track. The environment is flat and dry. One of the first things that caught my attention was the nests of giant birds...

Getaway Parque Nacional Tikal

After spending a few days in Ciudad de Guatemala and in wonderful Antigua, I caught a local flight at La Aurora International Airport (in Ciudad de Guatemala) to Mundo Maya International Airport (in Isla de Flores). The flight is very short. I left at 6:30 in the morning and arrived at my destination at 07:30. I hired everything (flight, guide and hotel) at Tag...

Getaway Camprodon

I had gone as a child. A long time ago. I had good memories of both the bridge and the cookies (hahaha) and I really wanted to go back. I liked it so much that I have gone two weekends! It is a dynamic town, open to mountain sports and with a wide range of historical-cultural visits to the area. If you make a link on the map you will see the exact location of the...

Getaway Pompei

It is one of the most important tourist attractions in Italy. Everyone says that the Pompei ruins are unique and they probably are. Much of its value is due to the fact that it was not destroyed by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius, but was buried under a layer of ash. This is just why the city is so well preserved. The eruption was terrible, but the death toll...

Getaway Lac Rose

I leave Dakar, after breakfast, towards Lac Rose. Slowly, I go with the van on the A1 until a detour that leads, first to Niaga and then to one of the most important tourist attractions in the country: Lac Rose. It takes me 1:15h to travel more than 40 km and finally I arrive at Chez Salim Lac Rose. It is a hotel that is next to the lake and is a departure point for...

Getaway New Jersey

If I'm honest, I shouldn't name this post "New Jersey." New Jersey is a huge US state and I was only in Newark, Bayonne and Weehawken; the eastern part, which is the area closest to New York. Newark: The star visit of Newark is, without a doubt, the New Hope Baptist Church. It is the church where Whitney Houston began to sing and where her funeral was held. At the...

Getaway Bohol

Philippines was one of my dreams. I often received photos of paradisiacal beaches and exuberant nature of this exotic country and this made me sure that visiting it would be a success. So it was. Let's not forget that it is an archipelago of 7,641 islands. It is not easy to choose which ones to visit. There are so many that too high volume is waived. They all have...
