london trip big ben

A few weeks ago I was able to visit one of my favourite European capitals, London. Its charm is timeless due to its unique atmosphere, the style of its palaces and the quantity of its historical monuments always crowded by many tourists.

This great city has two souls inside itself: the ancient one with all the monuments and historical buildings made of stone and the other one, modern and high-tech, in which high steel skyscrapers emerge between older buildings slowly changing the metropolitan skyline.

Because of the large amount of places of interest in the city and the limited amount of time I had to spend in my stay, I have drawn up a list of what I think every tourist should visit. My long day began with the city's most famous monument, the Houses of Parliament, current residence of the British Parliament, and the Big Ben Tower. Nearby you can also visit Westminster Abbey and, with a short walk, Buckingham Palace. After a quick lunch at Hyde Park, one of London's nine royal parks, I take the underground to continue my tour visiting in order: Covent Garden market, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge.

The following day, after a rich English breakfast, I decide to resume my tour from Camden Town, a very characteristic place known for its shops and murals and make a short visit to the British Museum before taking my suitcase back home.

Below are some of the shots taken in this short but intense London weekend.

amsterdam netherlands one day

Being often in Netherlands for work even during the weekend I couldn't exempt to visit the capital and largest city of this country: Amsterdam. This city has two distinct and very different faces, the first of which is tourist destination. This city has one of the largest Renaissance centres in Europe and many of its buildings are considered historical monuments.

The second face of Amsterdam is perhaps also the most well known all around the world and it is the one of a city of sin where everything or almost everything is allowed. Here you can buy and consume marijuana legally in one of more than 200 coffee shops in the city, or take a walk through the city's red light district, where women of all kinds and ages will try to seduce you through their shop windows.

Without going any further, I leave you to the shots I made during my short stay in this very characteristic city.

The journey by motorbike through northern Spain continues towards the next stop in Santiago de Compostela, the capital of the Spanish province of Galicia and the final end of the journey of the same name, called Santiago's Way, in which millions of pilgrims engage every year.

My itinerary continues from Gijon through the beautiful northern coasts, such as the Praia das Catedrais, which owes its name to the numerous particular rock formations located on the beach, which form a very suggestive series of natural arches that can be crossed on foot during the low tide and which are reminiscent of the rampant arches of the Gothic cathedrals.

Arrived in the city of Santiago it is time to rest before embarking on the return journey to Barcelona, maybe tasting an excellent Galician octopus accompanied by tasty pimiento de Padron. You waiting to taste these specialties, enjoy a few photos of my trip.

The Romantische Strasse is an itinerary along Bavaria until reaching the mountain range of the German Alps about 366km long. This itinerary touches many places of interest both from the historical and landscape point of view, such as the famous Neuschwanstein castle commissioned by Ludovico II, or characteristic towns such as Rothenburg ob der Tauber surrounded by a solid wall chain, Nördlingen featuring quayside and Augusta, the capital of Swabia characterized by the urban center with valuable archaeological finds.

Despite the constant rain that accompanied me during the first half of my motorcycle trip, I did not lose sight of myself and still managed to shoot numerous photos of these places. Below you can find a brief summary.
