Aloe Vera Farm, Mallorca

Today I visited an aloe vera farm in Mallorca with the Winter Activities group. Don’t spend much money Don’t spend much money Don’t spend much money That’s what I was telling myself. Who was I kidding? I spent 59€. And Toni spent another 56€.

Club Allard, Madrid

When I went to Madrid in January on a gastronomy trip, I dined at four restaurants with Michelin stars in four days. Of the four, the restaurant which surprised and impressed me the most was Club Allard. I had eaten at Club Allard before and also loved it. That was when Diego Guerrero was still head chef.

Best Cheese Shop in Madrid

The best cheese shop in Madrid is called Quesería Conde Duque. It’s like entering an Aladdin’s Cave when you go in, with towers and bricks of cheese all around. This place is a cheesie’s dream. And my suitcase stank when it was time to go back to Mallorca the next day!

Tour of Bellver Castle in 50mm Photos

Mallorca’s Bellver Castle is one of the island’s most emblematic and unique landmarks. The Bellver Castle is located just outside the city of Palma atop a hill of 112m from where the panoramic views of the city and the port are breathtaking. This castle is unique among Spanish castles in that it is entirely circular.

    The Whole Rainforest Blog

    Searching for tarantulas on the night trek, being almost abducted by an over-friendly orangutan, sleeping in the open-air on an Indonesian river boat, and having the time of our lives in the jungle… These are just a few things that I have shared with you on this rainforest blog.

    Madrid Gastronomy Trip

    I recently went to Madrid on a gastronomy trip. As you know, Toni and I love eating at good restaurants. Some people like to spend their money on expensive cosmetics, designer clothes or fancy cars. We like to travel, eat and drink. And that’s what we did in Madrid in January.

    Visit East Java’s Volcanoes From Yogyakarta, NOT From Bali

    For travellers in Indonesia it is very important that if you want to visit the volcanoes of Bromo and Ijen in East Java, you do it on your way from Yogyakarta to Bali and NOT the other way round. Thankfully this is the way that we did it when we were in Indonesia.

    Sulphur Miners at Ijen Volcano

    In the crater of Mount Ijen, one of the volcanoes that I explored during our East Java Volcanoes Tour, is the largest acidic lake on planet earth, with a pH of 0.5 (similar to battery acid). The water in the lake is acidic enough to dissolve clothes and eat through metal.
