At the end of my journey in Galicia, my host family asked me to make a chart of the places They made me visit… It turned out I really liked Cudillero .Carlos, my host dad, didn’t agree with that at all. He couldn’t understand how I could put Cudillero in one of the first positions. The thing is that I DO LOVE SMALL TOWNS, It might be because I grew up in a very tiny village where there’s nothing but banks and restaurants (no, I am not kidding, Carasco has 3 banks and 6 restaurants, and that’s all We have). I am not saying that I would live in small town but if I’m traveling I’d rather see a cute tiny and  distinguishing village instead of […]

ALLARIZ, Galicia

March 6, 2014 // 0 Comments

Allariz è un piccolo borgo medioevale circondato da boschi di castagni che si trova vicino ad Ourense, non lo definirei un MUST , tuttavia se siete vicini ad Ourense merita una visita. Vi ruberà poche ore perchè è davvero piccola, ma carina con le sue vie strette e le mura che la circondano. L’ideale se si vuole passare una giornata in mezzo alla natura . Vi sono inoltre molti negozi e bar per rilassarsi dopo una passeggiata lungo il fiume .   Allariz is a small village surrounded by chestnut trees , close to Ourense . It’ s not a must if You’re in Spain, but You might wanna visit It If You’ re close to Ourense. It’s very small so It’ s not going […]

Amazing Playa de las Catedrales – Meravigliosa Playa de las Catedrales

March 1, 2014 // 0 Comments

La ” Playa de las Catedrales ”  which would be”  Beach of the Cathedrals ” is one of the best beaches I have ever seen . It’ s called that because of Its natural archs and caves which can only be seen at low tide . European people usually think that places like this can only be found in Australia or South America but the truth is that We do have wonderful landscapes. I am so glad my Spanish host family made me realize how beautiful Europe is (THANKS Marta & Carlos). La ” Playa de las Catedrales ” , cioè ” Spiaggia delle Cattedrali ” , è una delle più belle spiagge che abbia mai visto. Il suo nome deriva dagli archi naturali creati dalle […]

Top 5 Galician dishes – Top 5 piatti della Galizia

February 27, 2014 // 5 Comments

One of my favourite books is “ Eat, pray , love “, I do love the part when Elizabeth , the main character, is in Rome and learn how to eat properly and sit around a table. Uno dei mie romanzi preferiti è “ Mangia, prega, ama “ , amo la parte in cui la protagonista si trova a Roma e riscopre il piacere del mangiare bene e con tranquillità. Galicia was for me like Rome, I’ ve tasted new flavours and tried new and fresh products, I must say I loved most of them and that It happend just once not to like something. La Galizia è stata un po’ come la mia Roma, ho scoperto sapori nuovi e provato prodotti freschi  e genuini, […]

La Coruña, the glass city – La Coruña, la città di vetro

February 24, 2014 // 0 Comments

This is one of the last cities I have visited in Galicia, I was very curious to see It because It is one of the most visited cities of the region. My Spanish host family took me there and I quite liked It. I think It’s different from all the other places I have seen in Galicia because It is very modern and quite big. There are a lot of clothes shops, restaurants, coffee shops… I’d say You would live there if You’re the ” big city kind of person”. Questa è una delle ultime città che ho visitato in Galizia, ero molto curiosa di vederla perchè è uno dei posti più visitati della regione. Ho raggiunto la città in macchina, insieme alla mia famiglia […]

Long time flight experience

February 22, 2014 // 0 Comments

I’ve been experiencing a very long flight for the first time in my whole life! I was kind of scared and worried because people that are not used to it usually think It’s a very boring and uncomfortable experience! They  think It ‘s impossible to sleep and You get bored very easily but It ‘ s not like that! I’m going to write about my experience with Qatar Airways , It might be quite ordinary for some people, but interesting for those who never flew for more than 4 hours. Planes are cold, the air is dry and You might think You ‘ll need a blanket and cream for Your skin, well You don’ t ! Qatar Airways provides Its costumers with a soft pillow, […]

Amazing Ribeira Sacra in Galicia, Spain – Spettacolare la Ribeira Sacra in Galizia, Spagna

February 16, 2014 // 0 Comments

I love the beach, I love staring at the sea and listening to the sound of the waves, I have always been the kind of beach person BUT I have to say that “Ribeira Sacra” impressed me. Infinite mountains, the river running between the rocks, green everywhere. . . Let’s say It is a pretty good scenary! Io amo il mare, mi piace sedermi sulla spiaggia e ascoltare il rumore delle onde, passerei ore a guardare il mare, sono sempre stata il tipo di persona che preferisce andare in vacanza al mare piuttosto che in montagna. MA devo ammettere che la Ribeira Sacra ha avuto un certo impatto su di me. Infinite montagne, il fiume che scorre tra le rocce e verde ovunque…. Non posso proprio […]
