It’s a very exciting time to be in Ayamonte. Semana Santa is quite amazing and the people of Ayamonte in Andalucia do it in style! Here’s a guide to Semana Santa. It explains the pointed hats and traditions which will hopefully add to your enjoyment and understanding of Holy Week in Spain:
I just wanted to share this photograph. I took it of my family just relaxing in Isla Canela at our apartment. It’s great to visit new places, explore markets and get active but sometimes you just need cosy up and do absolutely nothing!!!!!!! Have a great Sunday and if you can stay in your pjs until lunch…
Well, it’s been wet, wet, wet here for at least the last week but we have had a fantastic family holiday!! So much so my mum has decided to stay even longer and has changed her flight back to the UK! The sky’s may be dark but the architecture and the coffee is a complete pleasure. I love nothing more than a good walk around the two followed by coffee and cake in plaza Laguna. Even on a wet and windy day it’s still a delight. At roughly 90p a coffee it’s always amazing value too! Back then to the apartment for a cosy afternoon reading and watching the kite surfers. Bliss!!
Dia de Todos los Santos (All Saints Day) can best be described as the day in which almost all of Spain enjoys eating the mouthwatering delicacies known as “Buñuelos de Viento” and “Huesos de Santo” (Saint’s Bones). It is common to see long lines outside of Spanish bakeries as everyone wanst to take home looks of lovely cakes for tea after paying their respects at the cemetry to loved ones. ♥
Why not settled down in a plaza in Ayamonte and enjoy a cake and coffee. At less than 3 euors for both its a cheap afternoon in the sunshine. Beats Halloween any day!
