  1. We really liked the Parador Santa Domingo – it also beyond our budget to stay there, but it was a great conversion of an old hospital.


  2. Yes, start at the top and work down is my usual philosophy but getting there can be irksome. Have a good weekend. 🙂


  3. As a coffee hater, I need a good cup of tea in the mornings and can’t remember having a decent one anywhere in mainland Europe.

      One thing that lets hotels down in Europe is the absence of tea making facilities in the rooms. I bought a plastic travel kettle but it never made decent tea so I abandoned it!


  4. Not decent tea and then lukewarm. Ugh. What a way to start your day.


  5. I’m here again! You know I love those hands of Fatima 🙂
