Crema Catalana

I fell in love with crema catalanas in Spain. It’s quite similar to a creme brûlée, which is the French version, pretty sure the Spanish and the French are still arguing about who created it first. I find the crema catalanas have a strong citrus flavour, which is quite different. I had to make these… Continue reading Crema Catalana

Madrid and Segovia, Spain

Madrid: We stayed in an Airbnb in Lavapies, Madrid, while the apartment was very nice and well-located, we had actually arrived at a very unfortunate time. Lavapies had had a small tragedy the day before we arrived – an African street vendor had died under suspicious circumstances in Lavapies, which then sparked a riot. When… Continue reading Madrid and Segovia, Spain

I love Portugal! Honestly, it is my favourite country in Europe, and it is SO under-rated. Would highly recommend that you go and discover Portugal’s hidden mysteries, I can guarantee you will fall in love with it. We absolutely fell in love with the Portuguese people.

The Riad’s manager had the most beautiful husky puppy, Aslaug. She was very cute, but very… Continue reading Marrakesh, Essaouira, And Casablanca, Morocco

I don’t think I will do it again, but it was still very special. The driver, Ibrahim picked us up directly from the Riad,… Continue reading Camel Tour, Morocco

Tangier and Fez, Morocco

Tangier: We were only in Tangier because that’s where the ferry docks. Our plan was to take the train to Fez as soon as we arrive in Tangier. The ferry took us from Algeciras to Tangier Med. The ticket told us that we have to be at the ferry station 90 minutes prior to boarding.… Continue reading Tangier and Fez, Morocco

Granada and Malaga (Spain), and Gibraltar

Granada: I was actually very sick when we arrived in Granada, so we had to have a rest day. I slept a lot and tried to recover. The next day we went to see La Alhambra. Top tip: buy your tickets 2 months in advance, an adult ticket is €14.50 online. We tried to buy… Continue reading Granada and Malaga (Spain), and Gibraltar
