Welcome to my little Travel Scrapbook about slow and eco-friendly traveling! All of my (mostly outdoor) adventures are packed in short travel stories in English & Spanish. 

 

I'm the happiest when on a hiking trail, cycling path or a sailing boat... Positive side effects of this kind of travelling are mindfulness and time to interact with foreign cultures. That's why many of my posts focus on the intercultural aspect of traveling. Most of those articles can be found in "Travel Reflections".

 

Oh, did I introduce myself? I am Pauline from Luxembourg - Paulina for the Spanish - and a passionate travellette currently re-settling down in my native country... after an expedition of a lifetime: Boat HitchHiking over the Atlantic Ocean!

 

Here your can read more about my quest for the unknown and why I actually write in Spanish and English! My Travel Scrapbook brings you the hidden gems straight from the travel road!

 

I invite you to lean back and Discover, Learn & Embrace the Unknown!

 Let's hit the road together! - ¡Vámonos de viaje!


To be on the road is about...

Experiencing the unexpected.

Spotting the hidden gems.

Letting go & getting lost.

 

And it's about finding yourself at the end of the road.

10 Must Eat & Food to Try in Madrid

madrid food, traditional food, must eat in madrid, food to try, spain, travel, blog, best restaurants in madrid, calamari sandwich, paella, tapas, plaza mayor, street food, tripadvisor, book, reserve table, cuisine,

Slowly but steadily I get the time to write down some of my favorite places and things to do in Madrid. After living 2 years in the Spanish capital and calling it “home” for a while, I got to know Madrid in many different aspects. 

 

One of them was without any doubt the local food. Madrid is one of the cities with highest numbers of bars and restaurants per head. Thus it’s no wonder that locals consider the streets of Madrid and their countless terraces as their second living room. As prices are relatively affordable, you can basically eat out every night without draining your budget.

 

As any other Spanish large city, Madrid has its very own traditional food specialties and drinks. So here they go: the 10 Must Eat and Food to Try in Madrid.

Let me confess you a little soft spot: for me personally, Bruges is the most romantic town in Europe. It just can’t compete with Paris or Venice. This opinion may be due to the fact that I like small towns, which are still not too crowded.

 

Even though tourism in Bruges is growing with every season, you’ll still find many picturesque corners that invite you to sit down and forget about time. And take photographs of Bruges most beautiful squares and locations.

 

Let me take you on a photographic journey along Bruges most photogenic and scenic places.
