Hi friends, the heat wave is back in London – YEAH! temperatures are high… ok, let’s say mid twenties but hey, that’s pretty good… ok I’m sounding very British now. The sun is taking a break today and since it’s a bit grey outside, I am uploading a few shots from a long-weekend trip to the beautiful Andalusia. We spent a few chilled-out days in the countryside at Casa La Siesta with its lush lavender bushes, pink Bougainvillea and lime and orange trees before moving on to some serious tapas and sherry bar hopping in Sevilla.
What I love about these trips are the little inspirations you get and the little wow moments.. in fact this was a big wow dessert moment – see the last pic. One I’ll definitely try at home once autumn comes…. a good old fashioned rum raisin ice-cream with some strong, dark Pedro Ximénez sherry poured over. One from the category “simple but mind-blowing pleasures”. With this memory in mind, I feel the urge to check out the freezer for some ice-cream.
Before I say ciao, adios & see you soon, a few “where to stay & where to eat” tips:
Where to stay:
Where to eat:
- Restaurant at Casa La Siesta (near Vejer de la Frontera, utterly delicious)
- Restaurante Patria (Vejer de la Frontera, run by a Nordic couple so expect a very well working mix of Danish, Nordic and Andalusian cuisine)
- El Rinconcillo (Sevilla, always good for a Sherry & tapas pitstop at the bar, any time of the day)
- El Gallinero de Sandra (Sevilla, wonderful food like anchovies with an almond paste sauce…. unusual but soon good)
- The Bar at El Faro de Cadiz (Cadiz, THE place for the rum raisin ice-cream with Pedro Ximénez)
