Repairs, Friends and Islands

Back to reality after spending a week floating around Venice and Verona.

After doing a few running maintenance jobs and repairs in the car park of a supermarket (after hours of course!), we visited some friends in the beautiful “Lago di Garda” region who were kind enough to host us for a weekend. Thanks a million Umberto, Prudenza & Semir!

Since then we have been traveling the beautiful islands of Corsica (France) and Sardinia (Italy) which can only be described as breathtaking.

A tapear en España!

Las tapas en España forman parte de la propia esencia de la país,  por la forma de vida de los españoles, por ese punto de informalidad que tanto le gusta. Parecería que salir a tapear  más que  un hecho gastronómico ,en una forma de relación social que propicia charlas entre amigos sentados en una barra con un vaso de vino o un cerveza en la mano. Y en la costa Brava no pudieron faltar las tradicionales gambas al ajillo, esta vez decidimos hacerlas nosotros con un toque de chili y vino blanco al estilo John & Gaby

Goodbye England – Bonjour France

Being born and raised in Buenos Aires , France feels in many ways like home.  There are cafes and Boulangeries ( Panaderias/ bakeries )  on every corner where you see people beginning the day with a coffee and a croissant. The smell of freshly-baked bread first thing in the morning also brings back memories.  There’s nothing like walking by a bakery and breathing in the baguettes.

The charm of Champagne, the area where we stayed for the last few days,  is the result of both scenery and history. The combination of roads surrounded by wineries and smalls villages in between with buildings  of Stone, bricks and oak that are 200/300 years old or more give this place a unique feeling – we tried to capture some of its essence to share it with you.
