Tapas in Madrid

One of the things I’ve discovered during my travels in Spain is that every city, and region, seems to be quite different. Free tapas were the name of the game in Granada, which is part of Andalusia… but Sevilla, the capital of Andalusia, operated with the pay-for-tapa scheme. I can’t say that this is why...

Arriving in Seville!

Seville, or Sevilla to the locals, is the capital of the Andalusian region and one of the largest cities in Spain. It was one of the most important Spanish cities during the years of the Spanish Empire, an economic powerhouse that received many of the goods and treasures from its far flung colonies. I took...

Never knowing what you’re going to get, relying on vaguely translated descriptions (if there is an English menu) or trying to identify a common word between languages. Cesky Krumlov is a major tourist destination – the town relies on... Continue Reading →
