Two weeks ago, I decided to do a road trip with my sister to the north of Spain. img_8937dsc_0355Our first stop was Burgos, one of the Unesco World Heritage. img_8992Burgos is a city in Castilla-Leon situated in the Pilgrim’s Road to Santiago de Compostela. The city is  also known for its gothic and beautiful Cathedral. img_9001dsc_0328dsc_0316dsc_0350The city is all about great food, cute balconies and welcoming people. img_8983img_9004img_9052Where to Stay….hostelOur trip was very spontaneous, therefore, staying in a place that was walking distance from the city center was a must.
Let me tell you something, there is a huge misconception about hostels.  For some reason, people tend to relate hostels with cheap and dodgy tourism.
Well, let me tell you something, some of the most interesting people I know,  I met them in hostels.  When I travel with the desire of discovering and mingling with locals I always chose hostels over hotels.
During our time in Burgos, my sister and I stayed in a really nice and modern place.  Hostal Acuarela,  the place was only 5 min away from the Burgos Cathedral and the place was all about yummy breakfast (chocolate Napolitanas)  good company and some good Spanish music.
Where to eat….img_9026It took us around 7 hours to walk around the main landmarks, ok maybe 5, we did a pit stop at El Morito, one of the most famous restaurants in the city, where food is mouth watering and wine is good and cheapppp ….(€1,20 for a Ribera del Duero). This makes me think, what I am doing living in London…
