• 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

  • 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.

  • San Roque

    San RoqueSan Roque is a small town with a population of 25,000 near Gibraltar. It is part of the province of Cádiz. It was founded by the original inhabitants of Gibraltar, which abandoned the town in 1704, after the takeover by the Anglo-Dutch forces during the War of the Spanish Succession. This way, San Roque official motto is “The town of Gibraltar that lives in San Roque”. From San Roque you have a good view to Gibraltar and although Algeciras. San Roque itself is very nice, with its small streets and nice buildings. It´s worth a visit to drink a coffee in a little bar.
