TweetA little hour and a half from Malaga city, on the border of the provinces of Cádiz and Malaga and to the shelter of the Sierra de Cádiz emerges Setenil de Las Bodegas, an amazing town, so original and picturesque that you can not miss visiting it. Setenil lies on the dividing line of two emblematic natural parks (Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves) and forms part of the Route of the white villages of Cadiz. In it the houses are...

TweetI was not unaware that Nanjing was one of China’s four imperial cities and one of its oldest capitals. What surprised me a little was knowing that this was the city of the legendary and well-known Ming Dynasty, among ten other important Chinese dynasties. I think that everyone, even if we are not very knowledgeable about the history of China, have sometime heard the name of this lineage of emperors, if only because of the...

TweetSure you’ve all heard at some time of localities at Las Alpujarras as well known as Lanjarón (famous for its medicinal waters), Órgiva (the international and alternative capital of La Alpujarra) Trevelez (the highest village in Spain and the birthplace of their prized hams) or any of the towns that dot the Poqueira ravine (Pampaneira, Bubión and Capileira). All these populations are quite touristic and probably would become...

TweetA cold sweat wraps him and the blood and his heartbeats hit strongly on his temples. Is it vertigo that strong nausea that grips his stomach or merely terror? From the top terrace of the Galata tower, in Istanbul, which crowns the defensive stronghold of the Genoese everything is seen otherwise. The populous city lies at his feet, but in the solitude of the heights, only surround him the clouds and birds. He has spent years...

TweetThe image that comes to our mind when we hear of Málaga is the typical sun and beach destination. In fact, decades of touristic development by promoting just that have turned it into a very well-established destination in Europe and Spain, and on the engine of the regional economy. However, it is a rather simplistic definition. Málaga has much more to offer and it is why I decided to post gradually about the most curious places...

TweetAfter the dismantlement of the French colony that occupied the North of Africa until 1912, Tangier was under the joint administration of nine countries nearly all Europeans, and somehow abandoned to its fate. Because of this, until 1956 Tangier was an international city, capital of the European and American bourgeois exile and a meeting place for people of the most disparate conditions and nationalities. As a free city with quite...

TweetNepal is an interesting blend of religions, territories and peoples, which comprises more than 30 different ethnic groups. Half Indian, half Tibetan, Hindu and Buddhist, both major religions coexist harmoniously and it is difficult to determine where one begins and the other ends because both share deities and rituals. And not to forget that Buddha (Siddartha Gautama) was born here in the Kathmandu Valley, specifically in Lumbini...

TweetI had already visited Morocco on two other occasions and Tetouan had never appeared in any of these tours.  It is not that is not listed in the travel guides, but too often is described as “city of pass” or as a “city to avoid” for travelers for the insecurity. However, in this time I must say I was quite curious and with high expectations for the visit to the city of Tetouan. It seemed to be the hub of a...
