German-Texan heritage in Gruene    

Gruene is a gem of a town located roughly halfway between Austin and San Antonio, in the Texas Hill Country. Gruene, pronounced “green,” was first settled by German farmers in the 1840s. the Gruene family introduced cotton farming, which brought prosperity to the area. Some fine examples of late Victorian architecture still stand, like the Gruene Mansion or Gruene House, both Bed and Breakfasts now. Gruene was included in the National Register of Historic Places in 1975, which allowed it to retain an authentic turn-of-the-century look and feel.   

Antique stores, boutiques, art galleries, and a general store line the streets of Gruene. In addition, the town boasts the oldest continually operating dance hall in Texas, Gruene Hall, built in 1878. Another landmark is The Gristmill Restaurant, built in the shell of an 1878 cotton mill and has beautiful views of the Guadalupe River down below. In summer, people can rent tubing, stand-up paddle boarding, and kayaking equipment and go on the nearby Guadalupe and Comal rivers.  

19th century charm in Jefferson

Jefferson, once a bustling river port, now radiates Southern grace. The town was founded in the 1840s in Northeastern Texas. Jefferson is about 170 miles east of Dallas and less than an hour from the Louisiana border. Thanks to a giant log jam on the Red River, the water level of the Caddo Lake and Red Rover rose by several feet. This enabled commercial navigation to Jefferson from places as far as St. Louis and New Orleans along the Mississippi. The town flourished until 1873, when the Army Corps of Engineers blew up the log jam, considered a navigational hazard, thus lowering the water levels and making riverboat traffic no longer viable.

Many of the Victorian mansions were converted into Bed and Breakfasts. Jefferson has more registered historic buildings than anywhere in Texas, as well as the state’s oldest working hotel. The Excelsior House Hotel dates from 1858 and has had distinguished guests like Oscar Wilde or Ulysses S. Grant. Jefferson is said to be haunted, so visitors can learn all about local legends during a ghost walk. The Jefferson General Store, from 1879, is a must-visit. To take a break from so much history, swamp tours, canoeing, and fishing are available at the Caddo Lake close by.

Antique shops, independent boutiques, wine tasting, and water sports are some of the activities they have in store. These towns are fantastic for all kinds of trips, from a romantic weekend getaway to a family road trip. #Texas #travel

Historic Granbury

Granbury lies on the shores of Lake Granbury in North Central Texas. It all started when Tennessee emigrants came to settle on the Brazos River in 1854. Elizabeth Crockett, the widow of Davy Crockett, also settled here, on land given to the heirs of those who fought in the Texas Revolution of 1836. The settlement grew, and, in 1887, the Fort Worth and Rio Grande Railway connected Granbury with other towns.

Elizabeth Crockett also has her own statue at the Elizabeth Crocket State Historic Park, the smallest state park in Texas. Among other landmarks are the Historic Railroad Depot of 1914 or the Brazos Drive-In Theater from 1952, which is Texas’ longest continually running drive-in theater. The Hood County Courthouse, a three-story limestone building from 1890-1, dominates the square. The surrounding buildings, many of which are also registered historic landmarks, house boutiques, antique stores, and art galleries, among other businesses. The annual Granbury Wine Walk takes place in and around the square and features local wines, food, and art. Where to stay? In a Victorian B&B, where else!  

Marble Falls, the heart of the Hill Country

Marble Falls is nestled among rolling hills, vineyards, and lakes in Central Texas. Marble Falls Lake is within walking distance of the Historic Downtown area and provides a welcome respite from all that walking and shopping and visiting art galleries. Art features prominently in Marble Falls. Its main street is lined with sculptures, and the annual Sculpture on Main Fest showcases the best local artists. There are plenty of eating and drinking establishments, but one stands out: the Blue Bonnet Café. This café has been serving homestyle pies since 1929 and still draws big crowds. Be prepared to wait.

Marble Falls is surrounded by wonderful places to enjoy nature that are very close. Locals and visitors go boating, kayaking, and fishing at Inks and Buchanan lakes. Would-be speleologists should take a guided cave tour of the Longhorn Cavern. The Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge preserves the habitat of endangered songbirds. Enchanted Rock is a colossal pink granite dome that people can climb or enjoy from a distance. The star of the Pedernales Falls State Park is the Pedernales River, which flows over massive limestone slabs and can turn into a raging torrent in the blink of an eye, as flash floods are common in the Hill Country.

Sulphur Springs’ revitalized downtown area

Sulphur Springs is in Northeast Texas, about 80 miles from Dallas. Its name comes from the now dried-up sulfurous water springs and it was settled in the 1850s. The advent of the railroad in 1872 gave the small town an economic boost. Later, in the mid-twentieth century, the dairy industry became a major component of the local economy. However, it started to decline in the late 90s, along with the town’s fortunes.

Recently, the town’s authorities started a process of revitalization of the downtown area, though. Behind colorful storefronts are independent boutiques, restaurants, and bars, among other businesses. Every façade has been restored to its past splendor. And the trees that line the streets provide welcome shade in the hotter months. The town square, also newly revamped, includes the Romanesque Revival courthouse (built in 1894-5), a very moving veteran memorial and a splash pad in the shape of the Lone Star. However, the biggest attraction are the glass public toilets. Not to worry! They are covered in one-way mirrors that reflect the light and blend in with the surroundings.

Negocios de antigüedades, boutiques independientes, catas de vino y deportes acuáticos son algunas de las actividades que tienen reservadas para los visitantes. Estos pueblos son fantásticos para todo tipo de viajes, desde una escapada romántica de fin de semana hasta un road trip en familia.

Descubrí una cara diferente de Texas.

Herencia alemana en Gruene


Gruene es una belleza pueblerina ubicada aproximadamente a medio camino entre Austin y San Antonio, en el Texas Hill Country. Gruene, pronunciado “green“, fue colonizado por primera vez por agricultores alemanes en la década de 1840. La familia Gruene introdujo el cultivo del algodón, que a su vez trajo prosperidad a la zona. Todavía quedan algunos buenos ejemplos de la arquitectura victoriana tardía, como la Mansión Gruene o la Casa Gruene, ambos convertidos en Bed and Breakfast. Gruene fue incluido en el Registro Nacional de Lugares Históricos en 1975, lo que le permitió conservar su aspecto y ambiente auténticos de principios de siglo.

Tiendas de antigüedades, boutiques, galerías de arte y un almacén general pueblan las calles de Gruene. Además, el pueblo cuenta con el salón de baile más antiguo de Texas en uso continuado, Gruene Hall, construido en 1878. Otro hito es The Gristmill Restaurant, construido en las ruinas de una fábrica de algodón de 1878 y tiene hermosas vistas del río Guadalupe. En verano, la gente puede alquilar flotantes, stand-up paddles y kayaks e ir a los ríos cercanos Guadalupe y Comal.

Elegancia victoriana en Jefferson

Jefferson, que alguna vez fue un bullicioso puerto fluvial, ahora irradia encanto sureño. La ciudad fue fundada en la década de 1840 en el noreste de Texas. Jefferson está a unas 170 millas al este de Dallas y a menos de una hora de la frontera con Luisiana. Gracias a un atasco de troncos gigante en el Red River, el nivel del agua del lago Caddo y del Red Rover aumentó varios metros. Esto permitió la navegación comercial a Jefferson desde lugares tan lejanos como St. Louis y Nueva Orleans a lo largo del Mississippi. La ciudad floreció hasta 1873, cuando el Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército hizo estallar el atasco de troncos, considerado un peligro para la navegación, reduciendo así los niveles de agua y haciendo inviable el tráfico fluvial.

Muchas de las mansiones victorianas se convirtieron en Bed and Breakfasts. Jefferson tiene más edificios históricos registrados que en cualquier lugar de Texas, así como el hotel en funcionamiento más antiguo del estado. El Excelsior House Hotel data de 1858 y alojó pasajeros distinguidos como Oscar Wilde o el presidente Ulysses S. Grant. Se dice que Jefferson está embrujado, por lo que los visitantes pueden aprender todo sobre las leyendas locales durante una caminata guiada nocturna. La Jefferson General Store, de 1879, es una visita obligada. Para tomar un descanso de tanta historia, en el cercano lago Caddo se pueden realizar recorridos por los pantanos, hacer kayak y pescar.

Raíces revolucionarias en Granbury

Granbury se encuentra a orillas del lago Granbury, en el centro-norte de Texas. Todo comenzó cuando unos pioneros oriundos de Tennessee llegaron a establecerse en el río Brazos en 1854. Elizabeth Crockett, la viuda de Davy Crockett (quien luchó en la Batalla del Alamo contra fuerzas mexicanas), también se instaló aquí. Esas tierras fueron entregadas a los herederos de quienes lucharon en la Revolución de Texas de 1836. El asentamiento creció, y, en 1887, el ferrocarril de Fort Worth y Rio Grande llegó a conectar Granbury con otras ciudades.

Elizabeth Crockett tiene su propia estatua en el Parque Histórico Estadual Elizabeth Crocket, el más pequeño de Texas. Entre otros lugares de interés, se encuentran el histórico Railroad Depot de 1914 o el Brazos Drive-In Theatre de 1952, que es el autocine más antiguo de Texas en funcionamiento continuo. El Palacio de Justicia del Condado de Hood, un edificio de piedra caliza de tres pisos de 1890-1, domina la plaza. Los edificios circundantes, muchos de los cuales también son monumentos históricos registrados, alojan boutiques, anticuarios y galerías de arte, entre otros negocios. El Granbury Wine Walk anual se lleva a cabo dentro y alrededor de la plaza y presenta vinos, comida y artesanías locales. ¿Donde alojarse? En un B&B victoriano, ¿dónde más?

Marble Falls, en el corazón del Hill Country

Marble Falls está ubicado entre colinas, viñedos y lagos en el centro de Texas. Marble Falls Lake se encuentra a poca distancia a pie del área del centro histórico. El parque junto al lago ofrece un respiro de tanto caminar, ir de compras y visitar galerías de arte. El arte ocupa un lugar destacado en Marble Falls. Su calle principal está llena de esculturas, y el festival anual de esculturas Main Fest exhibe a los mejores artistas locales. Hay muchos establecimientos para comer y beber, pero se destaca el Blue Bonnet Café. Este café sirve pastelería casera desde 1929 y atrae a grandes multitudes. Preparate para esperar un buen rato en la vereda.

Marble Falls está rodeado de lugares maravillosos para disfrutar de la naturaleza y que se encuentran muy cerca. Los lugareños y visitantes salen a andar en bote y kayak y pescar en los lagos Inks y Buchanan. Los aspirantes a espeleólogos deberían realizar una visita guiada a las cuevas de Longhorn Cavern. El Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Balcones Canyonlands preserva el hábitat de aves en peligro de extinción. Enchanted Rock es una colosal cúpula de granito rosa que la gente puede escalar o disfrutar desde lejos. La estrella del Parque Estadual Pedernales Falls es el río Pedernales, que fluye sobre enormes losas de piedra caliza y puede convertirse en un torrente furioso en un abrir y cerrar de ojos, ya que las inundaciones repentinas son comunes en el Hill Country.

Sulphur Springs y su centro modernizado

Sulphur Springs se encuentra en el noreste de Texas, a unas 80 millas de Dallas. Su nombre proviene de los manantiales de agua sulfurosa, que ahora están secos, y se estableció en la década de 1850. La llegada del ferrocarril en 1872 dio a la pequeña ciudad un fuerte impulso económico. Más tarde, a mediados del siglo XX, la industria láctea se convirtió en un componente importante de la economía local. Sin embargo, comenzó a declinar a finales de los ’90, junto con la fortuna de la ciudad.

Sin embargo, hace poco, las autoridades del pueblo iniciaron un proceso de revitalización del centro de la ciudad. Detrás de coloridos vidrieras se encuentran boutiques independientes, restaurantes y bares, entre otros. Cada fachada ha sido restaurada a su antiguo esplendor. Los árboles que bordean las calles brindan una agradable sombra en los meses más calurosos. La plaza del pueblo, también recientemente renovada, incluye el palacio de justicia, de estilo renacentista románico (construido en 1894-5), un monumento a los veteranos muy conmovedor y una fuente con la forma de la Estrella Solitaria, el símbolo de Texas. Sin embargo, la mayor atracción son los baños públicos de vidrio. ¡No es para preocuparse! Están cubiertos de espejos unidireccionales que reflejan la luz y se mimetizan con el entorno.

Buenos Aires travel tips for making the most of this amazing city

Whether you’re planning your first trip or you’re thinking of going back, these Buenos Aires travel tips will sure come in handy!

The coffee culture is vibrant in Buenos Aires. There is a handful of cafes that have been declared part of the city’s historic and cultural heritage. Make sure visit at least one to soak up their old-world atmosphere. Cafe Tortoni is the most famous and touristy. If there’s a queue outside the door, head to Los 36 Billares (Avenida de Mayo 1265) or any of these. Expect a bite of something sweet with your coffee.

These Buenos Aires travel tips will help you make the most of your trip to the beautiful capital of Argentina. #travel #Argentina #buenosaires #traveltips

Unfortunately, not all bars and restaurants take credit cards. Ask the waiter before ordering (or make sure you have enough cash).

Walk, walk, walk! Buenos Aires is a pedestrian-friendly city (even if some motorists are most definitely not.) Its grid pattern makes it easy to find one’s way around the place.

Tips. You’re not expected to tip taxi drivers. If you’re feeling generous, you may round the fare up. The standard tip is about 10% of the bill in restaurants and bars. Leave more if service was great. Some places add it to the bill when there’s a party of eight or more people.

Haggling is not a common practice in this part of the world. Don’t even try.

Taxes are already included in the final amount.

Taxis are relatively cheap. You can flag one down on the street (just stand on the corner and put your arm out), call a taxi company, or use apps like Easy Taxi. You can also order a remis, a sort of hired car. There is a remisería in every neighbourhood. You can use Uber, but bear in mind that it’s not quite legal yet. They may refuse service in central Buenos Aires because there have been instances of attacks by enraged taxi drivers. I still use Uber, though. Cabify is another option (this one is legal). Download the app and go!

Just like in any other big city, pickpockets target tourists. Take a few sensible precautions: don’t carry valuables in your back pockets, don’t hang your handbag from the back of the chair in a restaurant, don’t walk and text, carry your backpack or handbag in the front rather than your back when travelling on public transport.

Buses are cheap and will take you absolutely everywhere. Try to get hold of a Guia T, which lists every bus line, bus stop and bus route in the city (Caveat: it’s available in Spanish only). The bus stops on some avenues, like 9 de Julio or Juan B. Justo, are in the middle of the road. You’ll find them very easily, as they are clearly marked and they all have maps with each line’s itinerary and stops. The system is called Metrobús.

You’ll need a SUBE smartcard for buses, trains, and the underground (Subte). You can buy one at casas de lotería (and buy a lottery ticket as well, why not?), underground (Subte) stations,  and kioscos (newsagents). You can top up with pay-as-you-go credit. There’s no need to register your SUBE card, as you probably won’t be eligible for a government discount.

Argentina is known for its beef. Parrillas, local steakhouses, range from little holes in the wall to establishments. Most are somewhere in between. If you can’t wait to get stuck in, you may want to learn how to order beef: vuelta y vuelta (rare), jugoso (medium rare), a punto (medium), bien cocido (well done). Some of the most popular cuts are bife de chorizo, vacio, lomo, asado, entraña. Beef lovers, rejoice! You don’t eat meat? Here’s what you can eat instead!

Our Italian ancestors heavily influenced our culinary tradition. Thus, pizza and pasta have become staples. The basic Porteño pizza is thinner than deep dish, laden with cheese, and topped with olives. Other favourite kinds are fugazza (cooked onions, oregano, and black olives), fugazzetta (onion and cheese pie), fugazzetta rellena (a real gut bomb! the pizza dough is stuffed with ham and cheese and topped with more cheese, cooked onion, and black olives). El Cuartito  and Los Inmortales are among the most traditional pizzerias.

Order a picada, Argentinean-style tapas, and wash it down with craft beer. There are many microbreweries around the city. The oldest and most established ones are Cervelar and Antares.

What to do in lovely Windsor in one day

Windsor was recently on the media thanks to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, which took place in St. George’s chapel inside Windsor Castle. But I’m going to share what you can do in this lovely medieval city in one day.

How to get there

We drove from the southwest of England. However, if you drive from London, take the A4 and then go west on the M4. It’ll take about an hour, or a bit more or less, depending on traffic conditions. Bear in mind that Heathrow airport is halfway between the two cities, which may make traffic worse at certain times of the day.

If you’d rather go by train, take the South-Western Railway line from Waterloo Station and get off at Windsor & Eton Riverside. It takes about an hour plus the time it takes you to get to Waterloo. Keep in mind that you cannot use your Oyster card to travel by train, you’ll have to buy a ticket at the station.

Windsor

Windsor Castle

We toured the Castle about 15 years ago (oh my, how time flies!), so this time I simply admired it from the outside. I got talking to a police agent, who warned me that the wait at this time (late May) was 15 minutes, but it could be two hours long in peak season. She also advised me to do something that should come second nature to everyone: buy the tickets online to save time. You can buy them here.

Windsor Castle

Royal Shopping Centre

Don’t miss the Royal Shopping Centre. It’s a lovingly restored, converted listed Victorian train station, complete with the original Jubilee Arch, cobbled floors and the original waiting room, which is now a café but it’s worth seeing. You can do some shopping, sit down for a meal or a drink, or just take photos like I did!

Windsor

On your way to the shopping centre, look out for the pavement clock outside Pizza Express on Thames Street, to the right of the entrance. It’s said to be the only pavement clock in the UK. It also contains a time capsule with information about Windsor. This clock replaced the original, installed in 1950 and which disappeared in the 90s.

Windsor

Guildhall

The Guildhall is used for ceremonial occasions, maybe council meetings and weddings. Prince Charles and Camilla tied the knot here. You can visit one room of this 1689 listed building, the Windsor &Royal Borough Museum. For £2, you can see the collection, which is eclectic but not too large. I could take it or leave it.

Windsor

Crooked House

To the left of the Guildhall, you’ll see a whimsical house, the Crooked House. Although it looks like something that came from Alice in Wonderland, it’s not! The house was built in 1592 with green oak beams. I guess the beams got crooked as they dried.

Windsor

The Shortest Street in the UK

At only 51 feet long, Queen Charlotte Street, to the left of the Crooked House, is officially Britain’s shortest street.

The Thames

Continue walking down Thames Street, and you’ll end up at the foot of the pedestrians-only Windsor Bridge. Take a stroll on the towpath along the Thames. Make sure you don’t piss off the swans, as beautiful as they are, they can be mean! They are protected by law as they belong to the Queen.

Windsor

Eton

Eton, founded in the 15th century, is one of Britain’s most exclusive schools for boys. You can book a tour of the premises every Friday from May to September here. Otherwise, you can only see some buildings from the street. While my husband was in a meeting, I lunched at Côte, at the foot of the bridge on Eton’s side, with nice views of the river. I then walked up and down High Street. I came across some students. Their uniform got my attention. They wore tailcoats to class! It looked rather uncomfortable but I guess people adapt to anything and they value their traditions.

Windsor

St. John the Baptist Church

The main attraction of this lovely, quiet Victorian church is the Last Supper, from about 1600, and gifted to the church by King George III. The church is on Thames Street, on the opposite direction from the castle.

Windsor

I would have liked to take a sedate cruise along the Thames, but it started to rain and, suddenly, that idea didn’t look like fun. Boats sail from Windsor Promenade.

Have you been to Windsor? What other recommendations would you add?

 

What to see and do in the lovely medieval city of Windsor, home of the Queen and a perfect day trip from London #Windsor #England #travel

Day trip to Bath: Roman ruins and cream tea

History buffs, Jane Austen fans, wannabe archaeologists, cream tea enthusiasts: if you’re planning a day trip to Bath, England, these tips will come in handy. And if you are none of these things but would love to visit a city with ancient roots and Georgian refinement, also take note.

This is our day trip to Bath

Roman Baths

The Roman Baths go back to Celtic times. The Celts built a shrine to the goddess Sulis, which the Roman later identified with their goddess Minerva. Then, the Romans gradually built the complex around the temple to Sulis/Minerva in and around 70 AD. You can still see parts of it and Minerva’s statue. In the following centuries, the baths have been used for their health benefits and have been modified or added to.

Day trip to Bath, England

As soon as we entered, we went to the terrace overlooking the Great Bath. We walked around with our audioguides. You realise that the complex extends quite a bit under the street and is a lot larger than it seems. We learned where the spring water comes from, and we saw the changing rooms and sauna, and the heated rooms and plunge pools. Each place comes alive with the film projections that show what Romans did in each room. I loved the Roman ladies (or, rather, impersonators) chatting next to the Great Bath.

Day trip to Bath, England

We came here in May, and there weren’t big crowds. I’m not sure how early you need to arrive to be able to see everything in relative peace during peak times. My rule of thumb is the earlier, the better.

Cream tea at Sally Lunn’s

I’m a sucker for cream tea, especially if the tea house is ancient. Sally Lunn’s is in one of Bath’s oldest houses, from the 1482, and is famous for its buns. It’s said that Jane Austen liked them too. Good enough for Jane, good enough for me! Sally Lunn, a Huguenot (French Protestant) refugee, set up bakery in 1680. She became famous for her buns, a cross between a brioche and a tea cake.

Day trip to Bath, England

Narrow rooms and stairs, uneven creaky floors and a low ceiling create a unique atmosphere. I ordered the Sally Lunn cream tea: one half of a bun bigger as big as my hand, clotted cream, strawberry jam, and tea. Sean had the Queen Victoria cream tea with lemon curd. It was rather good and filling. Bear this in mind if you have dinner plans. The two teas and a bottle of water set us back £19.14.

Day trip to Bath, England

There is a small museum in the basement. It’s the original kitchen with the Georgian cooking range that Sally used.

4, North Parade Passage

Pulteney Bridge

This Georgian gem dates from 1769 and is lined with shops on both sides. It doesn’t feel like you’re crossing a bridge, rather, like you’re walking down the street. The bridge straddles the River Avon.

Day trip to Bath, England

The bridge was used as setting for Javert’s suicide scene, played by Russell Crowe in the 2012 film version of Les Misérables*.

Day trip to Bath, England

The Circus (1734-69)

A lovely example of Georgian architecture, The Circus consists of three curved segments of townhouses. The architect admired the Druids, so he designed the Circus with the same diameter as Stonehenge. Look out for ornamental details related to the Druids, like serpents or acorns.

Day trip to Bath, England

The Circus, Bath, BA1 2EW

The Royal Crescent

The Royal Crescent is up Brock Street from The Circus. 30 grad I listed townhouses are arranged in a semicircle overlooking Royal Victoria Park. They are all private residences, but you can walk around the street. The words that come to mind are luxury, wealth, precise design, beauty.

Day trip to Bath, England

You’ll see that all front doors are white except one, No. 22. The owner went to court in the 1970s to fight for her right to paint her door yellow. She won and it’s been like this since then.

Bath city centre

We strolled around the pretty streets, which we like doing. Towards evening, we noted that there were many hen and stag parties. It seems to become a party town on Saturday nights!

Day trip to Bath, England

Some facts

  • Bath is 1.5 hours from London by train, so coming for the day is doable.
  • Bath is synonymous with Jane Austen. Austenites will be in heaven visiting the places she knew or wrote about. We didn’t have the time to do everything, though.
  • Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There is a lot more to do in Bath, we just didn’t have the time!
