  • Victoria and Alfred Hotel, Cape Town

    Victoria and Alfred Hotel, Cape Town

    A hotel with the best ever view you could possibly ever wish for. While preparing for going to Cape Town, I obviously wanted to stay somewhere with a Table Mountain view. It is called such because of the clouds rolling across the top of the mountain, which looks like a table cloth. A lot of the hotels advertised "partial Table View", but in reality, you would have to hang out by the window with the possibility of a broken neck to see even a glimpse of this majestic mountain.

    Beiramar Ships Waiting …

    This area of the city of Vigo owes his origin to the street that communicates the quarters of O Berbés and Bouzas. His name is “Orillamar“, in Spanish or “Beiramar“ in Galician. If we wanted to translate it into English, it would be something similar to “Bythesea“. It is a route of four rails (two in every sense), which passes parallel to the Ría of Vigo.

    Victoria's Inner Harbour

    Even though it's a 1300 km drive from my home, this is the place that I need to go to at least every other year. There's just something in the air and the atmosphere here that relaxes me like no place else.

    Rhine promenade, Düsseldorf

    If you come to Düsseldorf, you'll probably want to see the Old Town. But when you're already there (and if the weather's only halfway decent) you should go down to the Rhine and stroll down the Rheinuferpromenade (Rhine Embankment Promenade).

    Secret Place - Sandtorhöft

    The harbor of Hamburg is a very busy place and I don't mean the ships that sail down the Elbe. I speak of the millions of tourists that pass by the Landungsbrücken everyday; that stroll alongside the most touristic part of the harbor. I love this place because it is never the same and it changes with every ship that enters the harbor.
