Germany

I was twice in Bonn and Köln this year, the first one in September and the second one in November.

Former capital until 1991, Bonn is a city in western Germany straddling the Rhine river. It’s known for the Beethoven House, its Münster (a church with a Romanesque cloister and Gothic elements), the old city hall and Poppelsdorf Palace. It also houses a UN Campus with 20 organizations ranging from climate change to volunteerism.

Spain

We drove from Sevilla and arrived to Zahara de los Atunes at sunset. This village (and nearby Barbate) are famous for their atún (tuna) de almadraba. During our stay in Tarifa, we also explored the gorgeous village of Vejer de la Frontera and several beaches such as Bolonia (and its famous dune), Valdevaqueros (known among windsurfers), Cabo de Trafalgar (site of the famous naval battle) and El Cañuelo (only reachable by foot).
