A foodie & artsy week-end in Madrid

A foodie & artsy week-end in Madrid

It's been 20 years since I've last set foot in Madrid. When you hold super dear memories of a place, it's often hard to revisit it. As if that little corner in my heart - the Madrid of my twenties, when I was an exchange student - should not be altered by any grown-up...

Bonding ideas with a 12 year old in NYC

Bonding ideas with a 12 year old in NYC

Trips connect us to people and places. I find that taking a child on a one-on-one trip is a wonderful and most effective bonding experience. It provides intimacy and lasting memories for both parent and child. Marcelo and I went to NYC  when he was 5. It was...

The Amalfi coast is for lovers

The Amalfi coast is for lovers

I'd be curious to know if there's anyone out there who doesn't care about visiting or re-visiting the Amalfi coast?! It's got be on everyone's top 10 wanderlist because the gods of beauty, pleasure and laughter all got together on that little piece of heaven on...

Puglia without the crowds

Puglia without the crowds

What better than the excuse of a 40th birthday (not mine though!) to explore a new region. Or .. what better than a celebration with friends to enjoy a week-end away from the children? Or again .. what better than a few days in grey November to enjoy the Puglian sun?!...

In Bhutan: High, Higher, Highest Trip Ever! |2|

In Bhutan: High, Higher, Highest Trip Ever! |2|

Our recent trip to Bhutan was going to be two-weeks long but got shortened unexpectedly (more on this post the wife vs. the mother). Still, in a week, we drove over 500km of mostly bumpy roads, hiked about 15hours of trails, crossed 3 overpasses at 4,000m altitude. It...

The wife vs. the mother, Bhutan |1|

We're back from a trip in Bhutan, which I really want to document properly on BozAround. It will be mainly through photos as I took sooo many, and they will tell much more about this beautiful country than my own words. Bhutan is roughly the size of Switzerland,...

The Rough Guide to Capri, Italy (rough? yeah right!)

The Rough Guide to Capri, Italy (rough? yeah right!)

It sounds a bit like an oxymoron, Rough & Capri, but when you dig beneath the surface, Capri comes across as a rough gem in the Mediterannee. That was my departing impression after 3 nights / 4 days spent there early June. I could, too, say I fell in love with...

Under the Mallorcan sun, Spain

Under the Mallorcan sun, Spain

There is another Mallorca away from the over-developped coast in the East. It has retained all its charm and dramatic coastline. I am talking about the area around the towns of Soller, Deia and Valdemossa, in the North-West of the island, North of Palma and...

Lisboa in 3 days tete-a-tete

Lisboa in 3 days tete-a-tete

Lisbon is a perfect city for a week end getaway tete-a-tete. It's not too big yet it has a tremendous lot to offer in terms of art and culture. It's full of charm yet it all comes naturally, at no big expense. And Portuguese people are just very kind. Plus they know a...

Trying to squeeze in a last little one

Trying to squeeze in a last little one

After 5 months on the road with 2 children, 37 flights taken and 14 countries visited, we thought we deserved a break. We had planned to squeeze in a last little trip en amoureux before the end of our sabbatical. And we got caught. Or rather, it did not go as...

Wine tasting in Mendoza, Argentina. Children not permitted.

We toured the wine region of Mendoza for 3 days, leaving the kids behind in Buenos Aires under the loving care of nonna. ¡Salud! Mendoza is the 4th largest city in Argentina, and its wines are exported all over the world, especially the Malbec, which I am a big fan...

How I traveled to Syria for my birthday, and loved it

How I traveled to Syria for my birthday, and loved it

Yes I traveled to Syria last week. Not the broken and abused Syria that we all know from the news but the Syria full of colours, smiles and flavours that once stood proud. That’s right, that's where we all went on Thursday night with a bunch of super girlfriends and...

I wonder what Hemingway would say about Cuba today

I wonder what Hemingway would say about Cuba today

Everyone's talking about Cuba these days, and I am thrown 20 years back to when I first visited this special island, and left it with mixed feelings about its future. I was 20 years old back then. During a summer internship in Caracas (that's a whole other blog...
