Being so far removed from the U.S., it’s easy for us to lose track of holidays that are celebrated there. Now obviously on the 4th of July we always celebrate our Day of Independence, but this year was special. Why?
Greetings One and All. I must be the luckiest guy on the planet. “Why?” you ask? Because I get to do super cool stuff and then write about it. So what’s on tap today? A Sailing charter in Costa Tropical! And if you’re one of those impatient types who want to skip ahead, well then yes, we had a great time!
Looking for what to do with just one day in Córdoba Spain? There are times when you just want to get away from the normal routine. A week-long vacation may be out of the question, but there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy a quick weekend trip to take in some culture. If you only have 1 day in Córdoba, don’t worry as it is just the sort of place for a great day trip, short weekend or you can also easily enjoy a full week for your vacations to Córdoba.
First off, I don’t mean to sound negative. And I don’t want to come off as a snobby tourist, but there’s a few things that happened in Paris that bothered me. Now these common Paris scams happen in every popular tourist place, but it still bugs me that there are people doing this kind of stuff, and are not actively getting arrested (or their butt’s kicked!).
What was it that Bob Dylan wrote? Ahh yes, “The times they are a changin’“. So why do I bring that song up? It’s really a mundane thing, but the time in Spain will be changing. It’s time to turn the clocks back. Who out there (in the Northern Hemisphere) has been waiting all year for that extra hour of sleep? This guy, that’s who!
I can almost see it. We’re getting very close. Close to what? My dream of being able to travel around a country, go where we want, see what we want, and when we want. In a campervan. Yes, you read that right.
We at Wagoners Abroad see our fair share of tourist things, but what we really enjoy is finding those gems that show the interesting cultural items of a city or country. This includes not only seeing, but experiencing how the locals do things. Spending a few hours in their shoes is a fantastic way to better understand people. With the help of Paula at Devour Madrid Food Tour, she was able to show us a few of the gems in her neighborhood of Huertas.
During our summer break/vacation, we spent a week just outside of Granada, and on one of the days we ventured into town, we decided to do our first Segway Tour in Granada with Ensegway. What was it like? Was it fun? What did you see? I will answer all of those questions, but you’ll just have to keep reading.
Visiting cities like Barcelona, which are filled with extreme art and culture with kids can be really exhausting. Kids typically do not always find visiting museums, churches, or architecturally advanced structures amusing and hence, can be hard to please. Therefore, if you’re travelling to this magnificent city with children, it is important to plan ahead, places, or attractions which will be fun for them. We think this is one of the friendliest cities on earth, so getting around with kids should be not so difficult! Let’s review a few things to do in Barcelona with kids!
