  1. […] My favorite travel blog, A Luxury Travel Blog, shared with us the world’s 50 best restaurants 2006. Below is the list that I get from the blog. […]

  2. A little suggestion for travellers coming to Andalusia: try the hidden ¨Sevruga¨ restaurant in Coria, just 20 minutes from Sevilla. It deserves a visit. Warm atmosphere, nice treatment, and great food and wines.
