On the Road In Spain and the USA

For those of you who read this blog regularly, you may have noticed that I haven’t posted here in a while. The reason is that I left Granada in June to travel around the centre of Spain for a few weeks seeing beautiful places such as Caceres, Extremadura, Salamanca, Segovia, Madrid, Valencia and Alicante among others. I hope to post about this trip at some point.

Playa de la Valmarrosa, Valencia in the morning. Not a bad place for a coffee…

However, my wife and I enjoyed our summer travelling so much that we continued and last week started a 3-month trip around the United States. So far, we’ve been to Boston, Vermont, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard among other places and this week, we’re in New York.

We plan to continue across the country via the West Coast, the South and Cuba returning to Granada in December and I hope to publish occasional posts here about our American experience.

You may also like to know that I have been continuing to publish a podcast and a written post every week on my other blog Away From The Noise encouraging confidence in people to live the lives they want to live.

Of course, I’m missing Granada, Andalucia and Spain, however my wife and I are also really enjoying seeing a different world in the US.

Naturally, I’m also always in search of the best cortado I can find and although they make it differently in the US, without question the best so far is Everyman Espresso in East Village, New York.

The best cortado in the USA so far…

Next stop, Chicago!


    • It was rather nice Sue! In Chicago today, so apparently here foodwise, it’s about the Italian beef sandwich drenched in gravy and the Vienna hot dog. I’m not getting any fitter on this trip…


  1. Good for you, Jason (and Mrs Cortado). We regularly take off for trips around Spain and Portugal – as well as further afield. Three years ago we travelled around SE Asia for three months and have also done a couple of four month trips around Australia and New Zealand. Life’s too short not to.

    Hope you have a wonderful time … your lives will be all the richer for it.


    • Thank you Marianne. Having a fantastic time and learning lots about new places in the States as I’ve never been beyond New York until this week.
