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...

Getaway Porto

I have been twice in Porto, specifically, two weekends. Everyone spoke very well to me; but I went without much expectations. I liked Lisbon too much and thought that Porto would be behind. This is a clear example of the error of prejudging before knowing. Porto is amazing. Small, beautiful, with history, very nice shops and a good gastronomic offer. For me, it is...

Getaway Midtown Manhattan

New York is huge. I try to know every corner of this city, but I can’t. I have been there 3 times. The first two were by pass and I was very few days. I saw the typical things that makes me an idea of the city. The third and last one was the objective of the trip and things changed. I spent there almost two weeks. I organized the visits in four areas:...

Getaway Lanzarote and La Graciosa

I took the plane to Lanzarote on December 27 at mid-morning. I arrived at the “H10 Rubicón Palace” hotel in Playa Blanca at around 3pm. I ate something quick and was already in the car. I wanted to benefit of the afternoon. The LZ-2 highway is one of the main ones. It connects Playa Blanca with Arrecife (and Airport). From Playa Blanca, in just 10...

Getaway Antigua

I had a special desire with Guatemala. My mother and my grandparents had always spoken to me very well. They are my references in travel issues. We have similar tastes and they recommended me this country with such emphasis, I was aroused by an important curiosity. I had the fortune to visit it with a Guatemalan family who welcomed and took care of me. I lived in...

Getaway Shanghai

I was planning a trip to the Philippines. I was excited to know this exotic country; but while I was organizing it, I thought it would be a great idea to make a three-day stop in Shanghai. I was not curious about it; but in this city live two people who I really wanted to see. This was the only motivation I had with Shanghai. So I went with a personal illusion, but...

Getaway Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is a destination I wanted to visit since I saw the movie “Under the Tuscan sun”. I fell in love with the images of Positano and I promised myself that one day I would go. With almost a week (in spring) ahead, I had to meet three challenges: make peace with Naples, overcome the “Casa dello Scheletro” of Ercolano and confirm if...

Getaway Burgos

I had a personal commitment in Lerma one Sunday; That’s why I decided to leave Barcelona, by car, the day before and take the opportunity to see Burgos on the Saturday’s afternoon. I didn’t have much time, but since they had told me so well about this city, I wanted to visit it. I arrived around 3pm and left around 8:30pm. I had five and a half...

Getaway Cayo Playuela y Playuelita

I have said on many occasions that Morrocoy was a discovery for me. There are destinations in Venezuela, such as Los Roques, which are world famous. Everyone knows it even they have not been there; but who knows Morrocoy? I already wrote it in the post of Playa Mero: I think that Venezuelans do not speak too much because they do not want to make...

Getaway La Fresneda

I have manifested in different occasions my weakness for the province of Teruel. I know it little, but every day I like it more. Honestly, I have not heard of La Fresneda. Neither knew it existed nor placed it on the map. I got here thanks to the hotel “El Convent”. Once there, it was Sandra who, with her pro-activity, did not hesitate for a minute to...

Getaway Ercolano

Based on my travelling tastes, Ercolano has been unfairly eclipsed by Pompeii. I am aware that  these ruins are one of the most important in the world. However, Ercolano deserves to be more known across the globe than it currently is. Because of its size, its location, its hard history and some of the images I will never be able to remove from my memory, made...

Getaway Lake Powell

Everyone who knows me, always have heard that I do not go back to a place where I have already been. Putting aside the European cities (which I have repeated some): when I talk about far away and expensive destinations, even though I loved them, I always say I will not go back. There are too many pretty things in the world and the pending list is too long for me to...
