The days we spent in wine capital Haro

If you’re planning a wine trip through the Rioja region, a visit to the wine village of Haro is definitely a must go. You can say that Haro is pretty much the wine capital of Rioja where you can find many famous wine houses. You can compare it a bit with Épernay in Champagne. Maybe…

Sea, food and city walks in San Sebastian

This year we decided to spend our holiday in the Northern part of Spain, where we wanted to explore the coast and countryside.

In England it has been…

Hanwell Zoo, a small animal park in West London

Secretly I like to discover places in London where we haven’t been before. Alone, together with friends or with family. Fortunately in London there is always something to do. And when I’m asking Lara where she wants to go she often says museum, a playground or something with animals. Which child doesnt? Luckily Londen knows…

Spending a Sunday afternoon in Windsor

On Sundays we like to go out for a good walk followed by a visit to a pub for a Sunday Roast or just a drink. From our house it’s very easy to start your walk and go for example to the Thames, where you can follow the Thames path towards Hammersmith, Kew or Brentford….
