    Slow? No go

    Who doesn't like a bit of speeded up video? (You? BLA BLA BLA, not listening.) Here we take the notoriously slow Feve train - from Solares to Santander in 2 minutes.

    The train service in Extremadura is a source of frustration for locals. Here we lend Renfe a hand in hand in speeding up the service.

  • A bit about us

    Just some reflections on a country we love

    There's two of us behind this blog, but I'll leave the OH to introduce himself. Meanwhile, I’m Debbi and I live in Madrid – where I tell people I’m called Deborah (which I am in fact), because it seems to be easier. After the fifth time of being called Betty or (worse) Bebby, I soon figured that out.


    I lived here before between 1997 and 2003 when I was an eager, young twentysomething. I moved back in 2016 to escape the hideousness of Brexit – older, probably not any wiser, but equally loving this amazing country.


    I work as a freelance writer and CSR consultant, but mostly what I love to do is eat, cook, travel and then share my discoveries and random ramblings with you lovely people. That’s what this blog is about. I hope you like it.
