We are back with one of those post that aims to show you something different to do from Barcelona. Cabrera Sanctuary is a place where no tourists go. Only locals wanting to hike or spend a day in the nature. The sanctuary is located in the county of Osona at the top of a rocky hill. As you can expect, the views from the top are astonishing and the climb is completely worth it. It can be done with children and it is a fantastic spot to have a picnic. If you ever travel to Catalonia and want to be far from the crowds, this is really an option for you.
When we first thought about visiting China last summer we started gathering information about what to see and do in the two weeks of holidays that we had. We first focused on the Beijing area and found out that in the south, in the way to Xi’an, we could visit one of the most impressive medieval towns in China.
Pingyao is located in the Shanxi region and is a very popular destination among tourists. It is easy to reach Pingyao by train either from Beijing or from Datong. During our trip we met other travellers that were following the same itinerary than us: taking a train from Beijing to Datong and then another one from Datong to Pingyao. We have already written about the amazing experience that we had in Datong where we visited its hanging temple and the Yungang Grottoes.
