• MotoGP in Jerez de la Frontera

    MotoGP in Jerez de la FronteraOn the 25th of march is the next moto GP in Jerez. It´s the second grand prix after the race in Qatar. But before there is a Official Test on the racetrack of Jerez de la Frontera. From monday, 19th february until sunday, 25th february you can enjoy everything from MotoGP what you like. It´s not a real race, but I think it would be nice to see it. There is enough space for up to 250,000 people, so take some friends and go to the MotoGP in Jerez. It´s worth seeing it. And if you have some time left, Jerez is where sherry is originated and it is one of the original centres of Flamenco. Take one week off and go to Jerez.

  • Who would have thought that

    Who would have thought that - Reserva wineSpain is the country with the largest surface of vineyards in the world. Approx. 1,200,000 hectars of surface become managed by approximately 150,000 winegrowers in scarcely 5,000 Bodegas. Although Spain admits more as a red wine country, 50% of the surface is with white wine varieties. Spain is thereby clearly the largest white wine manufacturer of the world. Who would have thought that. But I like more drinking red wine, like some Rioja.

  • Looking for a new home?

    Fairline AndaluciaI found someone who is selling some different kind of homes. More elegant, but very nice, and maybe a little bit more expensive. Fairline Andalucia has an office in Puerto Banus and one in San Roque. They are selling the nicest boats ever, as well as you can also buy just a part of the boat, so you are sharing it with someone else. If you don´t have enough money but you want to cruise around with your boat if you are again on the coast for holiday

  • Manilva

    ManilvaManilva is a municipality on the Costa del Sol in the extreme southeast of the province Málaga in Andalucia (Spain). It consists of three principal places, whereby the most important is Manilva itself of course, a place, which is about 2km afar from the coast. Second is the coastal place San Luis de Sabinillas, rather known as Sabinillas. The third part, the fishing village called el Castillo de la Duquesa or just El Castillo is approx. 1,75km western at the coast. In addition there are many further parts with its own name. There is e.g. Puerto de la Duquesa, a beautiful small place with a not so small marina.  (more…)

  • The black Osborne bull

    The black Osborne bullMany tourists see this 14 meters high bull at the highways of Spain, black, strong and proud, and think this concerns a symbol of Spain. However this bull is actually only advertisement. It was a commercial trade mark of Osborne (producers of sherry and other spirits) but the wide presence of the bull all across Spanish roads made it a very popular symbol in the Spanish countryside. However, meanwhile it became a national symbol and also one of the most popular motives for photos of the tourists.
