    Style and comfort

    September 20, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    We are hurtling through Spain at 186 mph (300 kph) on the quietest, most comfortable train we have ever been on. It is 32 degrees C outside but it is comfortable in the air conditioned train. The scenery consists of lots of empty space. A lot of it dry, rocky and barren but some green, agricultural land now and then. With almost constant mountains in the background it is a very pleasant view from the trainRead more

    Y Viva España - Zaragoza

    October 3, 2019 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    Back to school - Hieß es für uns diese Woche! Wir haben in Zaragoza eine Woche lang Spanischunterricht genommen und obwohl es eine ganz schöne Umstellung war wieder jeden Morgen um neun zum Unterricht zu gehen, hatten wir ziemlich viel Spaß. Können wir jetzt Spanisch? Hablamos un poco español - Da ist definitiv noch Luft nach oben, aber wir üben fleißig weiter.... Diese Woche war in Zaragoza einiges los, da gestern offiziell die Fiestas del Pilar begonnen haben und die Stadt sich eine Woche im Ausnahmezustand befindet. Das Ganze hat ein bisschen was von Karneval, manche verkleiden sich sogar, es gibt Umzüge, Feuerwerk und alle feiern die Jungfrau el Pilar, natürlich begleitet von literweise Cerveza🍺 und Vino🍷 - Also genau nach unserem Geschmack!Read more

    Zaragoza - Caesaraugustus

    October 1, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    We have driven past Zaragoza, Spain's 5th largest city, a couple of times having been unable to find a decent place to stay. But a great municipal aire with a tram stop next to it gave us the opportunity to finally see the city.

    The Romans founded Caesaraugustus (from which Zaragoza is derived) in 14 BC and, during the 1 & 2 centuries AD, large public works were undertaken to create a city of splendour that reigned as one the Iberia's most important commercial centres. Then the Visigoths arrived and sacked the place in 472 AD.

    As medieval Zaragoza developed, Caesaraugustus lay buried and forgotten for 1500 years. Incredibly, it was only in the 1990's while excavating building works were taking place that the hidden treasures below the ground were revealed. We have visited numerous Roman theatres in our travels and, though this one was not as in tact as others, the way in which it was displayed, explained and re-created was by far the best and we learnt so much. Did you know that the Romans used concrete and boards to create walls which were then finished with alabaster, marble or smooth stone?

    The Basilica de Nuestra Senõra del Pilar is one of the best we have ever visited. Located on the huge Plaza del Pilar, the exterior is a feast for the eyes but the spacious, baroque interior, with inner dome, complete with frescoes by Goya, is something else. Many pilgrims visit the Basilica as the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared here atop a marble pillar (pilar).

    The famous painter Francisco de Goya was born nearby and we found out all about him and his art with a visit to the Museo Goya, recently refurbished and well laid out over three floors.

    The free aire only allowed us to stay for 3 days so it was time to go but we could easily have stayed longer. Now we know where to stay, we shall definitely be returning to see the other magnificent sights we didn't have time for on this trip.

    In the bunker

    November 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Hi people! Early stop again today as I was quite tired and decided to stop at the first nice spot I found. 5 mins later, I saw this bunker, historical site very inviting! Yeah, yeah, I know, it's war related, bad energies, blah blah blah... Well... Know what? If I have nightmares or sleep bad, I'll tell you guys and never do it again! But for now I'm very happy to have found a nice chilled place windproof, rainproof and I don't even have to pull the tarp!! Of course there's no connection inside so I'm here on the steps to write you these lines where I have 4G! Now I'm gonna read and take some time off... Slacking off Santiago! 😂 😘😘Read more
