Toledo- My beloved husband likes to celebrate a marathon for my birthday every year, in amazing destinations (it helps that my birthday is during Spring Break). Last year it was the Ring Road trip around Iceland. This year it was another wonderful road trip through the Peninsula Ibérica; Lisbon and Spain, countries we both know well, but adore to repeat. Also Holy Week or Semana Santa here is a huge deal, and an experience you will remember whether you are religious or not. First birthday surprise was a seven course meal by the spectacular chef Adolfo Muñoz in his Restaurante Adolfo in the gem that is Toledo city. He and his staff are so talented, supreme attention to detail, and Adolfo himself is a darling! The evening started with champagne and mouth watering cheeses on their terrace while watching the cathedral, and then a perfect dinner in the elegant main salon. Adolfo and his staff made every bite memorable. Don't miss Restaurante Adolfo if you visit Toledo.
Happy small detours!
