T.G.I.F: Boat trip in Cadiz

2 Nov

Every Friday, celebrating that the weekend comes, we are going to introduce you to alternative and original spots and locations in Spain to enjoy during the weekend.

It seems that we are having the last warm days before winter, so today could be a perfect day to visit El Puerto de Santa María and Cádiz, and to enjoy a beautiful boat trip between the cities.

Cádiz Bay lives very close to the sea and works as a guiding thread, essential to understand people and towns of the Europe’s south peak.

Spain is different (Flamenco way of protest)

26 Jun

From childhood I’ve grown with the statement: ‘Spain is different’.

Throughout my life I’ve interpreted it in several ways. Most of the times in the wrong way, but raising a half-smile of proud resignation. The same way that a mother looks at his most friendly but helpless son.

An unemployment rate of almost 25%. Until 100.000 million financial rescue. But full terraces on the streets and with different and very ironic ways of accepting the current situation. Check out this funny example:

Endless Roads 3 – Land of Castles

13 Jun

WE LOVE IT!!

THIS IS A T3ST

Tag along on a road trip in Spain with the Longboard Girls Crew·

In this third episode, we return from Mallorca and visit Carlota’s parents in their family house in Denia. They invite us to paella right in front of the beach. We spend the night in Calpe and continue our journey to the country’s interior. Castillian landscapes, lands of castles and medieval towns are waiting for us.

[7 female riders, 1 van, 15 days, 4.300km, 416 GB of raw material… culminating in one video, divided into four chapters. The film documents the adventure of the trip, portraying the girls, their lifestyle and their passion for longboard.]

Videos like this get me stoked to go out and skate the world.  This a four part series, I included this one because of that gnarly nose manual at 3:16. Here’s Part 1, Part 2 and Part 4!

Sundays are for us Movie-Days. We love going to the cinema and forgetting about the upcoming monday between frames and popcorn, or just stay at home and choose the perfect movie.

So yesterday we began to remember some Hollywood scenes or movies that have been shot in Spain. We remember these, but we are sure there are many more:

1. Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008)

So long and thanks for all the fish (A dolphin’s Tale)

5 Jun

One of our All-time-favourite songs is ‘So long and thanks for all the fish’. We discover it in the opening of “A hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy” (best part of the movie from far). This marvelous song tell us the terrible story of how dolphins fleed from planet Earth because of an upcoming crisis.

Everyday we read at the newspapers lots of bad news of spanish financial situation, and our great fear is that dolphins leave us too!!. That would be just too bad.

Sing with us!:

tripNETer Road Trip Music

31 May

In our Road Trip through the Green Spain, we spent many ‘lost hours’ driving from one landscape to another. We have found that for us there are some basic elements to survive the boredom that we want to share with you:

1) Bring with you lots of drinks. Water is the perfect choice to be hydrated, but I do prefer fruit juices (Peach specially, my favourite).

Bilbao & Tapas in our tripNETer Road Trip

28 May

We are in Bilbao!

And we have to admit that we fell completely in love!!

This amazing city of the Basque Country didn’t let us even breath: There’s so many things to do!.

Walking through El Casco Viejo is a must! Don’t forget to climb the never-ending stairs from Plaza Unamuno to Parque Etxebarria for those breathtaking views.

It is also a must, to walk along the river or ‘La Ría’. In the last 10 years, Bilbao has suffered an intense renovation, and the ‘recovery’ of the river was one of the main goals. Our mark: First class with honors.

Down the river finally you run into the symbol of the green spain capital: Guggenheim Museum.
