The Mercadona and cosmetics products

The Spanish supermarket Although my blog is not about fashion and beauty, I just want to say something about it in this post. Since my emigration to Spain I have had to say goodbye to my favourite drugstore. I always bought a lot of my shower gels, creams and shampoos there. And if I granted myself a little more luxury, I would go to the Rituals. But Spain is different. Here you can get a lot of premium brands of…

Visiting a rastro

Visiting a rastro

What is a rastro? A rastro is nothing more than a second-hand store. Rastro is the Spanish word for “track”. And there are user tracks on second-hand items. Reusing furniture and other items is very common here in Spain. If you want to get rid of your old furniture, you can simply put it on the street. It is often taken by someone within a few hours. In La Nucia also many people drive around in vans scouring all neighborhoods…

Fashion and art in Altea

Fashion and art in Altea

The beauty of Altea Because I live so close to the old town of Altea, I often go there. Altea is also the most beautiful town on the Costa Blanca with its picturesque, small, white streets in the old center. These streets eventually all lead to the church with the blue dome, the Parroquia De Nuestra SeƱora Del Consuelo. Earlier I wrote about the old center of Altea. But because Altea is so special, I like to dedicate a blog…

Visiting Altea for a day

To Altea From my roof terrace I can see the picturesque, blue dome of the church in Altea. It is a very recognizable piece of Altea. In my opinion the most characteristic part of Altea. I had never seen him up close. In October 2016 it finally happened. Not too hot and not too cold. A great moment to visit the casco antiguo of Altea. If you go there with children, it is best to first drive up as much…

Hello everybody! Welcome to my blog about Spain.

Hello everybody! Welcome to my blog about Spain.

The Spanish dream This is the start of my blog about Spain. For over 14 years I have been coming to Spain on a regular basis. Most of my holidays I have spend at the Costa Blanca. It is a beautiful area with pretty much the best climate in Europe, at least if you like a lot of sunshine. A nice breeze from the Mediterranean keeps it cool even in the warm summer months. For a long time I thought…

Een dagje uit naar Altea (1).

Een dagje uit naar Altea (1).

Naar Altea Vanaf mijn dakterras kan ik het pittoreske, blauwe koepeltje van de kerk in Altea zien. Het is een heel herkenbaar stukje. Mijns inziens het meest karakteristieke onderdeel van dit stadje. Van dichtbij had ik hem nog nooit gezien. In oktober 2016 kwam het er eindelijk van. Niet te warm en niet te koud. Een fijn moment om de casco antiguo van Altea te bezoeken. Als je met kinderen er naar toe gaat, dan kun je het beste eerst…
