    Foster's Hollywood

    Although I have finished the “my favourite places to eat out in Salamanca” series, there is still one restaurant I wanted to write about. The reason why it did not made it to my list is that I have been there only one single time, which is not enough time to call it...

    Hunting down the best churrería

    After so many posts, by now it must be obvious that I am a big fan of chocolate con churros. In my opinion, it is the best breakfast you can have in Spain. Especially my Brazilian friend, Kellen and I have been discovering newer and newer places to have churros. So I...

    Travelling alone vs with others

    I have been long planning a post about my personal experience and advice on whether to take on a trip alone or with a companion. Most of my life I have been travelling with friends or at least with people who I know to some extent, but I have also had the chance to...

    Sevilla: Sightseeing part 2 and an unforgettable flamenco show

    After another horrible night – thanks to people leaving and snoring during the night – I again woke up as if I had slept absolutely nothing during the whole time. We also welcomed the arrival of some new roommates. Actually most of them were older people, doing the...

    Sevilla: Transport, Accommodation And The First Evening

    “Sevilla tiene un color especial” – says a famous Spanish song dedicated to the city which I agree 100%. The last couple of days I spent there with my Brazilian friend, had some inexplicable charm that was really difficult to say goodbye to at the end of the...

    Semana Santa traditions in Salamanca

    Although the most famous Semana Santa celebration takes place in Sevilla, the one in Salamanca can also rightly deserve some recognition. Salamanca is full of tourists all year long, but still, Easter is regarded as one of the biggest events attracting probably the...

    Brazilian lunch on the second day of Semana Santa

    As I have indicated it in my previous post, I was planning to spend the second day of Semana Santa with my Brazilian friend preparing some traditional Brazilian food. I left home quite early so that I can help her with the cooking process and so that I can take notes...

    First day of Semana Santa

    I have found Spain to be a considerably religious country, and as such no wonder that Easter – or as they call it Semana Santa – is a very big deal here. Even if we are talking about the most important Christian holiday worldwide, I can clearly tell that it is...

    Recipe: Paella

    If there is a dish in Spain that can bring families together, that is certainly paella. Already the mode of serving this traditional Spanish food indicates that, as it is not served on individual plates, but in the paella, this very characteristic pan they cook it with,...

    Recipe: croquetas de jamón

    Croquetas de jamón can be found on the counter of every single tapas bar. Althogh it is probably not the healthiest Spanish food – as it is basically fried béchamel, – I can assure you that Spaniards and tourists equally love having them as tapas or for...
