Two weeks ago, I decided to do a road trip with my sister to the north of Spain. Our first stop was Burgos, one of the Unesco World Heritage. Burgos 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. The city is all about great food, cute balconies and welcoming people. Where to Stay….Our 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….It 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…
Don’t forget to try Morcilla… (I never thought I would ever write a sentence like this on my blog) but seriously… it is gooodddd
