With the upgrade of Kadettangen outside Sandvika, a promenade has also been created along the Sandvikselva (Sandvika River) from the river outlet to Løkke bridge. New walkways and bridges up the river have made this area far more accessible. The new Kadettangen is in itself worth a visit. Here it has become a large sand beach after filling masses from the new E16 towards Hønefoss were used to expand the beach area. At the estuary there are recreation areas with benches and pl
The coast northeast of the Calpe cliff is wild, beautiful and accessible. You don't get the long, soft, sandy beaches, but instead you can enjoy small coves and bays, some with sand, others with stones and gravel. There are three restaurants you can visit. A nice two hours trip. The trip starts right next to the Calpe cliff in the bay called Cala Caleta (or Cala de la Calalga). In the picture above you will see the parking lot at the right hand side and the Calpe cliff in the
Källviken has its own pizza restaurant and rooms and cabins you can enjoy with views to the beautiful archipelago of Bohuslän, but you can also have nice walks in the woods and fields. At the top of the hill you get a wonderful view to sea. In the first and last part of the trail you go through a dark forest. The trail is marked with white marks on trees and rocks.

In 2013 the sculpture park in Ekebergåsen was opened. Many were furious that the city council had accepted the gift from Christian Ringnes. If you have not already been there, it's time for a visit. That the forest area would lose its distinctive character was one of the most important appeal points to the sculpture park. But the municipality failed to maintain the area. The gift from Ringnes secures operating grants for the next 50 years and has made the park much more acces
For those who have spent some time at the Costa Blanca, the term "the communist" is well known. Together with his wife and son, Jeroni Moncho Pascual has been running a family restaurant in Tárbena for more than 40 years. The restaurant has been a must to visit - mostly because of the owner's charisma and the restaurant's atmosphere. Jeroni - or Jernonimo, as he also was called - was a communist on his neck, and it is said that he lost one arm during the war against Franko. T
The old town of Altea is one of the best preserved original coastal towns in Spain. It is also considered one of the most beautiful. In the picturesque narrow streets you will find countless little cozy shops with arts and crafts. The church with the distinctive blue dome is a landmark. Altea has been populated since 500 BC. In the 1600s a double fortress wall was established around the church and the buildings on the top as protection against pirate attacks. Today there are
