A few pictures from my 24 hours in Alicante in June 2017 after I visited Valencia (recap) and Calpe. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace of my wonderful B&B La Milagrosa. It’s right in the old town and also close to the beach and single rooms cost a little as 40€/night. I highly recommend this place … More Spain. Alicante. A photo post.
Largo do Intendente is a beautiful square in the city center, a short walk from Martim Moniz along Avenida Almirante Reis.

But this year I found cheap flights from NYCs LaGuardia Airport to Chicago O’Hare for just $110 return! The … More USA. Three days in Chicago.
Before I flew to Florida in March I spent 3 days in Brussels. As a child and teenager I visited Brussels many times and always loved it but I hadn’t been back in about 15 years!
