Ik had al gemerkt dat je er even niet was. Hopelijk alles OK daar!

Post To dekanski: location

Yes, it is next to the Maritime museum, but I didn't know it was open to the public. When we were there, it was only for guests. That has probably changed, and rightly so. It IS a great view.

Smile To holmertz: beaches and restaurants

Fully agree, obviously. In fact, restaurants is one of the main reasons why we like to travel. And as far as those beaches are concerned: when taken in moderation (i.e. not more than 2 days) and...

A good observation, Craig. I'm so used to the zoo being where it is that I never really gave it much thought. The zoo is a tourist attraction that goes back to the late 19th century, i.e. when the...

Post To PaulVDV: locatie en kleding

Inderdaad, de balkonnetjes deden me denken aan La Coruna, verder redelijk Keltische sfeer, vond ik. Ook het weer is er duidelijk anders/minder dan in de rest van Spanje.
