Madrid, Spain

Our last stop in Spain was to the city of Madrid. Due to a bad hotel choice, we ended up in a really far location away from all the action and basically lost a day and a half of being able to do any sight seeing. This taught us a very valuable lesson that trying to save extra money on a hotel that’s...

A Day Trip to Cordoba, Spain

About 85 miles north-east from Seville is the medieval city of Cordoba. One of the major capitals during the Spanish Muslim rule and also designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO, we knew it was something that couldn't be missed when visiting Andalucia, Spain.

Seville, Spain

We arrived in Seville (or Sevilla as the locals would say) around 7PM and were shown to one of the cutest Air Bnbs we've stayed at yet.   Our host, Ana, is super sweet and nice and even wrote us a little welcome note with a small bottle of champagne waiting for us in the...

Eating our way through Barcelona, Spain

We had some really good eats while in Barcelona, and sightseeing and trying local food go hand in hand when we travel anywhere.  Besides the delicious Paella and Jamon, Barcelona has a big tapas culture, which are a bunch of small dishes you eat to make up your meal.  We love this, because it means...

After spending the morning at Park Güell, we both had a better understanding and appreciation for Gaudi's work and were looking forward to visiting La Sagrada Familia.  We bought tickets for mid afternoon, as we read that it gets really crowded and busy in the morning. The entrance to the Sagrada...

The Must-See Gaudi Architecture in Barcelona (Part I), Spain

We didn't have any impressions about Barcelona when we decided to visit the city as part of our world tour. Previous to arrival, we read about how the Sagrada Familia was a must visit in Barcelona but still did not think much of it until the night we arrived. Our hotel was situated just 2 blocks...

Game of Thrones Filming Locations, Croatia & Spain

Minh and I had always heard good things about Game of Thrones and we actually attempted to watch it a couple years ago. However, we just couldn’t get through the first episode as there were so many characters, and it wasn’t captivating enough for us to continue. After that attempt we never tried...
