Spain: Lanzarote, Part 1

Wow, it’s been a long time since I scribbled about travelling! Since the move to the Netherlands, travel has been less regular for sure.

Portugal: Lisbon and Coimbra

When I was younger, I remember that whenever it got to Christmas time, my Mother would always secretly wish that the weather wasn’t great. I know, right? This was because, unlike a typical Christmas day in the land of the long white cloud, it reminded her of home, where there was a good chance of… Read More »Portugal: Lisbon and Coimbra
