A life worth living

When a mind is still, the universe surrenders.

" I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see" (John Burroughs)

"The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today" (H. Jackson Brown, Jr.)

"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these" (George Washington)

My journeys around the world

Sometimes the path you follow transforms the man you are.

Granada

El viajero hambriento de monumentos históricos, cultura y tradición podrá saciar su apetito recorriendo la ciudad de Granada, también conocida como la Ciudad de la Alhambra y capital de la provincia.

La Alhambra

La Alhambra fue ciudad palatina, Casa Real cristiana, Capitanía General del Reino de Granada y fortaleza militar hasta llegar a su declaración como Monumento en 1870.

Algeria

Africa’s largest country. Maghreb's most urbane and charismatic cities, with a heady, nostalgic mix of colonial and modernist architecture. Across the north are stunning coastlines, lush rural hinterland and a number of well-preserved Roman cities.

Krakow, Poland

Kraków is in many respects the most Polish of all this great nation’s cities. The ancient seat of kings and intelligentsia, Kraków comes steeped in legend and myth, and evokes the most fanciful of images, from dragons under the catacombs of Wawel, to Tartar hordes repelled at the gates, to pigeon-knights waiting for their king to return.

Urueñas, Segovia (I)

Es de fundación medieval, y pertenece desde entonces a la Comunidad de Villa y Tierra de Sepúlveda, en su ochavo de las Pedrizas. Sepúlveda y su tierra pertenecieron siempre al realengo, sin solución de continuidad. El nombre del pueblo parece le fuera impuesto por repobladores originarios de Urueña (Valladolid), famoso castillo medieval y más tarde Condado de poderoso linaje de los Girón.

Arribes del Duero

En el oeste de Zamora y Salamanca, donde el Duero y el Águeda se hacen frontera con Portugal y se encajonan formando los cañones más profundos y extensos -casi un centenar de kilómetros- de toda la Península Ibérica, se encuentra la comarca de Las Arribes. El parque es un espacio natural privilegiado en el que destacan la belleza agreste de su paisaje granítico y una rica y variada fauna y flora.

France & Switzerland

Lyon: Commercial, industrial and banking powerhouse for the past 500 years, today Lyon is France's third largest city.

Geneva: Sleek, slick and cosmopolitan, Geneva is among Europe's priciest, its people chatter in every language under the sun and it's constantly perceived as the Swiss capital (it isn't).

Liptovský Mikulás, Slovakia

The administrative, cultural, economic and tourist centre of the central Liptov region is the city of Liptovský Mikulás. Liptov became a year-round holiday region, mainly because of its beautiful nature, mineral thermal water springs, caves, great number of historical sights, open air museums of original architecture, and folklore traditions.
