Refugio Frey Walk - Great for all ages  // intrepidmonkeys.com

Walking down the street holding my mum’s hand when I was young, I had to take a few quick steps every so often to keep up. when I got to double digits, things didn’t change much as my mother has considerably longer legs than mine and I seemed to stop growing at age 12 – apart from the womanly bits! Our Refugio Frey walk was a flash back to those days. Due to a particularly late start, Alec set a cracking pace.

Sleep deprived and a little jaded from a day trip to Niebla that wasn’t as fruitful as we’d hoped, we jumped off the bus at Cerveceria Kunstmann hoping for the best.

Leave a piece of fruit within reach of our 10 month old baby, or in a bag on the floor, and it will be demolished skin and all! We could understand this behaviour the first few times we caught our son tucking into a nectarine or pear that we had left in the baby bag after an outing. But when we found him munching through banana skins we couldn’t believe our eyes!

I’ll admit, I’m a Lonley Planet snob. Particularly when it comes to eating out in a new destination, I like to go by recommendation. I don’t mind trying something new, but by far I have always had the best eating experiences when following the trusty guidance of others.
