Cadiz And The Beaches Of The South Of Spain

Cádiz is an historical city located in the province of the same name in Andalusia, a region in the south of Spain. The area is known for its pristine, sandy beaches and its historical towns.

Explore the historical towns.

The city of Cádiz is located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. This city has many cultural landmarks, the most famous of which is the Cathedral. There are many terrace bars, cafés and restaurants near the cathedral square.

If you choose to visit the area, then you will find many historical towns and seaside resorts peppered along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Two of the most famous ones are Puerto de Santa María, known for its cobblestone streets that lead to an ancient castle, and Algeciras, a windy city with white washed buildings on the coast.

Do not miss the coastal town of Tarifa, which is known for its beaches and its historical city center. The town center is filled with low, stone buildings decorated with colourful flowers. At night, the town becomes a popular meeting place for windsurfers, who fill the bars and restaurants before heading to one of the many clubs and discos located in the area.

Tour the White Villages

The White Villages are a set of traditional villages located in the mountains of the province of Cádiz. They are known for their whitewashed houses decorated with colourful flowers. Arcos de la Frontera is one the most famous villages, located on a hill. Ubrique is another place worth visiting, being the birthplace of many bullfighters and having been recently declared Property of Cultural Interest.

Relax on the beaches

There are many blue-flag beaches in the province of Cádiz. La Cachucha beach is the urban beach located in the Bay of Cadiz, close to the historical landmarks the city is famous for. In the traditional town of Chiclana de la Frontera you will find La Barrosa, a clean beach with golden sands.

If you are into kitesurf and windsurf, then the sporty beach of Tarifa is your ideal choice. There is a camping and many hotels next to the beach, which is considered to be one of the province’s most clean beaches.

The nearby Bolonia beach is known for its beach bars and restaurants, located in wooden huts next to the sea. This beach offers a variety of water sports and a separate bathing area. North of the Bolonia Bay you will find a several ancient Roman ruins and a set of natural dunes overlooking the blue waters. Another beach one must visit is Zahara de los Atunes, known for its stretches of golden sands and turquoise waters. The African continent can bee seen from these beaches on a clear day, all of which are located in the southern tip of the peninsula.
Well, I love beaches and looking at these pictures, it reminded me of my own beach holiday I had last year.   One day I would love to go again for beach vacations and hope it will be soon!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO...

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
