Restaurante Corrillo, Salamanca, Spain (2014)

Restaurante Corrillo is located around the corner from many of the major attractions in the heart of old Salamanca. Here you can have a tasty lunch, a decent bottle of wine, and enjoy the local scene.

We lingered here, taking a break from walking through the heat of the day. There’s plenty to see and do in Salamanca, including a spectacular basilica. More on that soon.

Hacienda Zorita, Valverdón, Spain

Staying at Hacienda Zorita is like having your own country estate. The hotel grounds extend from river to field to a complex of buildings that was once a convent.

There are several different types of rooms, including suites and villas that give you even more privacy. I stayed in a standard room, which you see next:

A spacious bathroom made this room even more comfortable.

There was also a terrace where you could relax in the sun or the shade, depending upon the time of day.

Also in the main building, you’ll find several comfortable lounges such as this one:

And a small bar for a glass of sherry or other beverage of your choice:

Back outside, you’ll find two swimming pools like this one:

And finally, there is a wonderful restaurant on site where we enjoyed a delicious chef’s menu.

Hacienda Zorita is located about 20 minutes driving from Salamanca, yet it feels like you are a world away. For business or pleasure, you’ll be away from it all here while still being close to enough to what you want.

Arner Memorial (from 2000ft.)

I interrupt my posts from Spain to bring you this aerial photo of Arner Memorial Airport (22N) taken from about 2,000 ft.

This is one of literally hundreds of small airports around the USA. There’s plenty of flying adventure to be had. Check out your local airport and go for a ride. It’s fun, a thrill, and worth every penny! I took this photo while flying a Diamond DA-40, which is a great airplane.
