    My Fav massages, facials thermal baths, hammam and cosmetic stores in Seville (Spain)

    Having been a stress of life, I have gotten into the habit, since I have a salary, of going regularly to an institute to relax: massage, sauna, hamma, facial care… I love it! Now that stress is no longer a permanent state for me, I still continue to be pampered, even when I’m travelling around the world In general, I’m used to going to institutes run by Asians: the prices are softer, and the massages are often more energetic and more precise (the acupuncture points all that, it’s no joke). However, the Asian population in Seville is close to nothing, so we’ll go to the local institutes instead. I warn…

    Spanish breakfast: Tostadas / Molletes and Churros

    In France, we have a traditionally sweet breakfast.If this diet did not cause me any problems during my childhood, when I became an adult, it no longer suited me: stomach ache, digestion problems, I stopped eating breakfast in the morning for years.It was only recently that I realized that a salty breakfast was much better for me. Egg on the plate, cheese or ham have therefore replaced cereals, jam and buns.During our world tour on 5 continents, I had the opportunity to experience several types of breakfast.I have a weakness for the Vietnamese soup Bún riêu (I’ll have to tell you about it…) cooked by the shopkeeper who is always…

    Seville (Spain): the continuation of our adventure

    I told you about our first days in Seville. The more I spend my time here, the more I love the city and Spain. The city is big enough to get lost in its small streets, but small enough to do everything on foot gastronomy We continue our gastronomic discovery. There are so many good tapas bars that we can’t get enough of them We finally discover the Antigua Abaceria tapas bar in San Lorenzo, recommended by our airbnb owner. The atmosphere is very local, there are always people, the decoration is from another time. We are placed in the kitchen so we see the cooks preparing the dishes and…
