Bye 2019, hello 2020

Some days ago we said goodbye to 2019 in the cold night of Geneva, while looking at the New Year’s Eve fireworks in Quai du Mont-Blanc. It fact, spending the New Year’s Eve abroad was one of our travel wishes fulfilled in 2019. But it is not the only one.

In 2019 we lived intensely. We made lots of things and although it seemed we would not have much free time to travel, finally we managed to visit some destinations that had been in our wish list for a long time.

Port Aventura and Ferrari Land

Visiting amusement parks is not one of our favourite activities when traveling. However, Port Aventura has been part of our lives since we were kids. This theme park is located just one hour driving from Barcelona, or a little bit more by train. Port Aventura has its own train station. And not only this, Port Aventura has 6 different areas, 5 of them based on a different part of the world: Mediterranea, Polynesia, China, Far West, Mexico and Sesamo Aventura.

La Alpujarra, the mountains of Granada

La Alpujara is an Andalusian region located in the southern slope of Sierra Nevada (literally meaning “snowy mountains”), in the Spanish provinces of Granada and Almería. The region is mainly formed by valleys and cliffs that go down from the top of Sierra Nevada. La Alpujarra is home to some of the most beautiful villages in Spain with their white houses and an unusual architecture. Moreover, the region is also interesting due to its gastronomy: honey, cheese, jam and specially the Trevélez cured ham.

A road trip across La Alpujarra is a good idea if you have one or two free days when visiting Granada and its world-famous Alhambra. The villages of LaAlpujarra Alta (the highest area of the region) are all connected among them with a sole road. You just need to drive from Lanjarón to Trevélez to enjoy the most stunning landscapes of La Alpujarra.

Mabul, the underwater paradise

It was 4 pm in Semporna. We arrived from a one-day tour to Bohey Dulang and the islands between Borneo and Philippines. We were tired and had salt in every pore of the skin. We walked the few metres between the Dragon Inn Hotel and the jetty were we expected to take the last boat to the paradise: Mabul archipelago.
