  • Day21

    Salamanca, Spain

    November 9, 2016 in Spain

    The boat is docked just over the border in Spain. This day we had to get up early for a two hour ride to the town of Salamanca, home of one of the oldest universities in Europe. It was opened in 1218 and is still operating.

    The town itself also had some cool old sites.

    Salamanca

    August 4, 2017 in Spain

    After about an hours drive, we arrived at our hotel in Salamanca, located just across the old roman bridge eating into the old town (Hotel Puente Romano de Salamanca). We were able to check in early (at about 1pm), for which we were very grateful since we had both had little sleep the night before (lovely as that accomodation was, everything was very fragrant...and Annette had trouble sleeping). Better still, the hotel had made the effort (on our emailed request) to avoid the use of whatever fragrant freshener they ordinarily use, and the result was...a very good nights sleep, even though we struggled with an afternoon catnap. Salamanca is sensational; lots of lovely golden sandstone buildings. Bustling with tourists, it didn't seem overly crowded anyway. We walked into the old town twice - for lunch and dinner...and thought they lace was particularly lovely when lit up at night. The food here really strikes us as a big improvement from the cuisine in Portugal...in particular we have found decent salads and more variation.Read more

    Salamanca

    August 5, 2017 in Spain

    After our late night last night, we slept well, waking quite late - and almost missing breakfast! Thankfully, it turned out that the hotel restaurant was open to 11am for the weekend, so time for the many obligatory morning coffees. After that we walked into the old town, visited the tourists office to see if we could do a tour in English today (unfortunately not), and I had my glasses fixed for the third time this trip (one screw slips out and there glasses fall apart). Its so hot here, we headed back to our hotel to escape the afternoon and have lunch, before a mid afternoon dip in the hotel pool - quite cold, but very welcome. After so much travelling, we are generally happy just admiring Salamanca by walking around its majestic buildings and relaxing.Read more
