Tanger Park

One of my favourite destinations in the world is definitely Morocco. I had been there a few times, but last year I really wanted to make the crossing by boat. In fact, I ended up making the crossing 3 times in 2023, so I liked it that much ;-)

It was in the summer of 2022 that I saw acquaintances passing by on Instagram, it had not occurred to me before. They were doing a day trip from Málaga to Algeciras to take the boat to Tangier Med. After communications back and forth, they gave me the tip to definitely not make the crossing from this place, but from Tarifa. No sooner said than done.

Illuminations in Malaga Christmas angels in the main street

Sitting on my terrace enjoying the lovely November sunshine and a pleasant temperature of 22 degrees, Christmas seems a long way off, but nothing could be further from the truth as the various villages and towns in the Axarquia, especially the city of Málaga, prepare to celebrate Christmas and the end-of-year festivities.

3 Tapas auf der Theke einer Bar

Two of the greatest pleasures in life are good food and good music and myself and Caroline had the opportunity to combine both on a short trip to Granada. We had booked to see Suede, a rock group from the 90’s, at the Teatro de Generalife beside the Alhambra palace but it also gave us the opportunity to indulge ourselves in the world of tapas of which Granada is so famous for.

There are numerous accounts of how the custom of eating tapas came about, and as is often the case different regions of Spain claim to be the birthplace of the iconic tradition. The most logical account is that the word tapa comes from the verb tapar which means ‘to cover’ and in Spanish ‘tapa’ is the name for a lid. Barkeepers used to cover their customers drinks with a slice of bread and a small piece of cheese and ham to prevent dust and flies from settling in the glass. Hence ‘the tapa’ was born.

Maria José bei Yoga Übung im Arial Studio in La Viñuela

I have been practising yoga for many years, some more intensively than others, from hatha, yin yoga, Vinyasa or any mixed form given. Usually it's the teacher who keeps me 'with the class', but I know that it really helps me to keep my body and head in better shape.  

So from the first years I lived in Canillas de Aceituno I went to Torre del Mar twice a week for my yoga classes by Bogusia. And when she unfortunately moved back to Poland, I then went to Viñuela to take Danielle's fine classes online during the Covid period.
