Barcelona

We recently spent some days in Barcelona,as an extension to a 7-night western Mediterranean cruise with Celebrity Cruises. Apart from the food, we love this city as it has everything…. a cosmopolitan feeling, great shopping, plentiful beautiful architecture, a beach, a lovely old town, great tapas restaurants and so on…. The city has become very […]

På äventyr med Rocky Adventure

‘ För 10-12 år sedan hade jag nöjet av att ha Björn Westin på en av mina safari resor i Kenya. Han berättade för mig om sin firma på Gran Canaria, Rocky Adventure, och i alla dessa år har jag tänkt att jag skulle testa en av hans fina vandringar…. Bättre sent än aldrig…. detta […]

Deliciously 222 SW Bar & Grill – a MUST visit on Gran Canaria!

One good thing, and probably the only good thing about a wedding anniversary in the month of November, is that you’ll always have a good reason to travel….. Last year, we celebrated our first anniversary with a “Dining by design” dinner by Anantara in Thailand – simply amazing. This year, while enjoying some relaxed days on […]

Gran Canaria – somehow timeless and still going strong

We just spent a week on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria (in the Atlantic outside Morocco). The “traditional” main tourist destination for Scandinavians since the 60’s.   It was meant to be a nice, quiet and calm week, with plenty of time to relax. I like the island mostly for two reasons; -Lots of […]

Yummy food in Podgora (Croatia)

As the food-loving characters we are, we simply must let you know this….. Being a small village, the selection of restaurants in Podgora is huge and very impressive. Having tried quite a number of them during the last 4 years, we have our 3 favourites, all equally good! They all have one thing in common: […]

Dubrovnik

Irish author Bernard Shaw said, very wisely, “Those who seek heaven on Earth must come to Dubrovnik”. The atmosphere in the old town of Dubrovnik is an experience that makes you feel thrown back hundreds of years in time and history. It’s simply beautiful and if you, like myself, loooove old buildings and venetian architecture, […]

Restaurant Jeny – a culinary necessity!

The first time we were in Croatia (2010), we did hear about this restaurant but never made the effort to visit as we could not imagine that the food could be any better than in Podgora…. However, little did we know….and decided to try it out the following year, and….it was far above any expectations […]

Our Croatia…..

For the 4th. (!) year in a row, we’re spending a week along the Dalmatian coast in Croatia. We love the small town/village of Podgora, which is located about 100 kms south of Split.   I always made fun of people going to the same place, same week, same hotel – until I became one […]

Another kind of (active) holiday….. (Spain)

Our normal kind of holiday usually goes somewhere warm with lots of sights to see…. If feeling extra active, we might visit the gym once, if at all (except when cruising on Celebrity…). This time around, however, we’re spending a week at Playitas resort on the Spanish island Fuerteventura. We left Copenhagen veeeeerrry early Sunday […]
