Christmas passes, we overcome the slope of January and the cold of winter comes ... those are the three signs that warn that it is time to make a calçotada. The Catalan tradition of eating calçots with friends or family begins in January and lasts until the end of March. The calçots can be eaten in any restaurant ... even in Barcelona we find them.
In February 2016, we escaped to Nîmes for a weekend to visit this city in southern France that has an impressive archaeological site. In this small guide we provide all the basic information to enjoy a wonderful weekend in Nîmes. How to get to Nîmes From Barcelona you can access comfortably by high-speed train.
On Thursday we woke up with rain in what would be our last morning in Madrid. The ideal time to go have some hot chocolate churros at the San Ginés chocolate shop (another place we discovered thanks to Isabel). We arrived at a quarter past nine, but they told us they didn't open until half past, so we took a little walk around the area under the umbrella.
As I mentioned in a previous post, Kyoto will be the base from where we will make many excursions. And a good way to come and go on the same day and to move quickly through the country are the Shinkansen or what is the same the Japanese AVE / TGV. In Japan, as here, the bullet train is not economical, but as the Japanese think of everything, they have created the JAPAN RAIL PASS.
We continue with the stories of the trip to Botswana: we leave Maun behind to drive to the small town of Kasane, where to explore Chobe National Park and cross the border to see Victoria Falls. At five in the morning we were already riding in the car. The night was still reigning, but the first lights of dawn began to emerge.
On our last visit to the Ebro Delta, we found information on the true route when passing through the tourist office of Tortosa. We had already heard about the one in Girona and, after informing ourselves about this route that passes through Tarragona, we were left wanting to travel the green route by bicycle.
