The rocky coast of Northern Spain is always a treat for the mind, the body, the senses. Long sandy coasts locked by plateaus of expansive greenery and cliffs withered by the beating of the crashing Atlantic waves, these picturesque sceneries await any traveller who would find himself lost in this less known part of Europe. … Continue reading Pilgrimage to Dragonstone

This time was a bit more special because … Continue reading Pleased To Meet You, Valencia!
