Hola ! I just found a post about Spain, with a picture of the medieval city of Toledo and under a comment : " spain....the land of siesta. Each country has its topic, which is fine and the topic of fiesta and siesta sounds friendly, but seriously, the last time I took a siesta was........ yesterday. It was sunday and it was a short one. But the weekdays I come to work at 10 am and leave the offie at 8 pm, with a short break for lunch and that´s all. I mostly work preparing custom itineraries for groups and independent travellers in Spain for the past 25 years. One of the topics which is true, is that we enjoy life and we use to watch it with tons of humor.
All the best wishes for this chatter and for all the travel agents worldwide. Hope this will be a great window for all of us, to laugh , to share travel experiences and why not? make some business together, all the best,Josu Camacho

This world had been changing too fast and so do the ways people travel. Thanks to the different ways of transporting people, the distances between countries or continents became shorter than never before and people started travelling for other reasons than before , searching for new adventures, for discovering challenges, for meeting people, cultures and natural beauties. Travelling the world for leisure was such an important fact and made all of us much rich. Of course the exchange between cultures was positive over all. A new industry was born, the Travel industry, and a new citizen was born at the same time, the traveller. But it looks like some destinations that were unknown became so popular that everyone started visiting them at the same time, so this hidden destinations became too popular, up to a point that there were more visitors than locals. Suddenly those cities started loosing its charm and character and became as crowded as amusement parks. Cell phones today are able to say what the forecast will be, which route is the best and what you should not miss in your chosen destination, but they will never tell you some important keys as where you should not go. Very useful information that insiders and professional travel agents only know. We will love to hear from you and your specific travel needs to build the trip you had been always looking for, something custom made for you, very much looking forward to hear from you! Josu Camacho

Gourmet Tour of Spain & Morocco – 14 days / 13 nights

Three thousand years ago, the Gibraltar Strait was the end of the known world and after crossing it it became darkness and mysteries. Just fourteen km separates Europe from Africa. A very short distance but in many ways a very long one too. However the people who lives in both sides of the Strait have many common years of history and traditions. The spices and characteristics in common and also its differences today through its history and cooking is what we are proposing on this trip. In the hands of expert chefs but also in the hands of local women and men who will teach us some secrets of how to prepare the best cus-cus to…

278.041 pilgrims arrived to Santiago this year, considering just the ones who came walking a minimum of 100km. This is an excellent notice for all of us. No matter what is the reason, if it is a personal one or an spiritual one, the Camino is getting more popular among travelers these days that are looking for something different, for new old paths to follow, for meeting new friends. Even that 2016 was not a holy year in Santiago ( the past one was 2010 and the next one will be 2021) the 2016 became an historic year in number of pilgrims and the number is increasing every year over 6%. It was also a year of international consolidation of the Camino. With over 146 different nationalities, with Spainyards ( Over 55%) followed by Germans, US citizens, French , Portuguese, Irish, UK Citizens, Koreans,, Australians, brazilians, Canadians, Mexicans , Japaneses,....Congratulations to all and please spread the word of your experiences, the people you met and the landscapes, food, art and local people you discovered. Very proud of the Camino, that without a doubt is the best way to travel these days, same way as 1000 years ago.

Watching the clear sky of Madrid from the balcony of our office I can feel the warm season coming finally after a strong rainy April. In Andalusia the spring already arrived and yesterday they finished with the April Fair week in Sevilla.

I forgot to write about the Fallas, the Holy Week and its processions and about the April Fair, but I promise I will be back soon and talk about them

Here is a photo of the Royal Alcazares in Seville and the beauty of its gardens.These gardens and its palace were built by the Moors almost 1000 years ago and are a must to visit in Sevilla. Are located behind its Cathedral and the Santa Cruz Quarter.

Seville has much to see and unfortunately people do not spend much time there. Staying 3 nights in Seville for travellers with no rush is highly recommended. Besides enjoying one of our personal guided walking tours, where we will show you our favorite corners and flavours, we will suggest you plenty other activities that fullfill the rest of your time according to your personal tastes.

Over 20 years now, since we created our company with the goal to show Spain to visitors the best way we can, we learned t listen close to each single request upfront and then we learned to offer each one with what we will love to do. It is as simple as this. Our philosophy was clear, treat visitors as guests, listen closely and offer them what you will like to do as local. Our goal is to keep on running many more years meeting people from all over the world in Spain.

We promise that we will write interesting articles and add beautiful pictures of Spain. Bienvenidos!!
