Nature Retreat – Sant Ponç, Catalonia

Nature Retreat – Sant Ponç, Catalonia

Back in late spring of 2015, I had a free weekend without any particular plans, and was yarning for some stillness and nature – and this is where I ended up… Actually,  I found this place by pure luck – or coincidence, whatever we want to call it. Sitting in the office, brainstorming where to take off to, I was looking around on the map of Catalonia for interesting places that aren’t too far away from my hometown of Barcelona…

Secrets of the Costa Brava – Begur

Secrets of the Costa Brava – Begur

Many people know Costa Brava as a place for mass tourism, crowded beaches and all-in hotels with food of dubious quality. To be very honest, this was also the image I had until about 6 years ago, when I first came to Barcelona to study. Luckily, the only people I knew before arriving there, lived in a precious little village in the Costa Brava, called Peratallada. That time I didn’t have the chance to visit this beautiful, hidden gem – but when I came back to Barcelona…

Nice, the pearl of the Côte d’Azur

Nice, the pearl of the Côte d’Azur

The Côte d’Azur has always been a favourite destination of many tourists world wide. It is famous for being one of the most luxurious places in France, crowded by tourists and the French bourgeosie – so at first sight, this was definetely not one of my most wanted destinations, but boy, was I wrong. There is so much more about Nice – this gorgeous mix of Mediterranean food, the talkative locals with their “Nissard” dialect of French, the winding alleys…

Paradisos Mallorquins – Mallorcan Paradises

Paradisos Mallorquins – Mallorcan Paradises

Mallorca (or Majorca, in Catalan, the language spoken in this region of Spain) is the biggest sister of the Balearic islands. Her little sister Ibiza is famous for the night long parties, the even smaller sister Menorca is home to amazing turquoise beaches – and my absolute favourite of the Baleares – but, I have to admit that Mallorca gives you the chance to combine culture, beaches and great food alltogether in one trip.  I have had the chance to…
