Our adventures in the Province of Granada took us to tiny villages, old churches, and, of course, to the world famous Alhambra.
In Spain, food isn't just about sustenance. It is an art and a way of life. This is what I love about food and one of the many things I love about Spain.
Our home was located on the edge of the village, overlooking the reservoir and nearby mountain ranges. There were three living areas on the property: the main house, a downstairs apartment, and a livable cave. Unlike most other house sits, we were actually living with our host and her nephew, along with her seven cats.
Our journey from Switzerland to our house sit in Spain was an adventure in itself. Once again, the flights were a little overpriced, so I put my crazy planning skills to work and found us transportation for a fraction of the price. But the road was long and more than a little bumpy. Only days before we set off on our 1,000 mile journey from our house sit in Mannedorf, we received a sad call from our host.
Our adventures in Switzerland lacked for nothing. We explored our old town, visited the even older town of Rapperswil, the city of Zurich, and we of course ate everything we could get our hands on.
While house sitting on Lake Zurich, we had the pleasure of staying in a stunning, hill side home with two adorable dogs.
The food prices in Karlsruhe were surprisingly affordable. With some careful meal planning, we were able to keep our usual menu and stay well under budget during our stay.
