Velvet Escape |

If you're into luxurious travels, you can not miss the blog "Velvet Escape" by Keith Jenkins.

Keith, and After many years of career in banking, has decided to turn his life around and devote himself to two of his passions: traveling and writing.

Thus, "Velvet Escape" was born. A space dedicated to luxury travel through which he conveys his enthusiasm for the world of travel, and shares his experiences and pictures.

For Keith, luxury goes beyond staying at a five-star hotel or a dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant. True luxury lies in the non-material and in the intangible experience we live, and what we get from them.

He's been awarded with several prizes, such as Best International Blog, Best Digital Media Award, Best Luxury Travel Blog, Top-15 Travel Twitter Accounts to Follow, Top-12 Twitter Personalities to Follow, or 100 Best Travel Blogs.

Hiking the coast

Costa Brava is a magical place with breathtaking cliffs, wild vegetation getting into the sea and stunning beaches with impossible shapes.

In this article, Keith reveals his favorite places in this wonderful natural environment.

“The Camins de Ronda is one of Europe’s great hiking trails and one of the most accessible. The varying lengths and levels of difficulty provide visitors with ample options for a leisurely stroll or a gruelling hike. The best thing is: it’s more than just a scenic trail. The natural scenery is captivating but the lovely villages, the hospitable locals and the amazing food will steal your heart for sure!”

The delights of the Catalan markets

Thanks to a Blogtrip organized by the Catalan Tourist Board, Keith had the pleasure to visit one of the most famous local markets in Barcelona, La Boqueria, which he fell totally in love:

“This market is home to some of the freshest food products in Barcelona and it’s no wonder that many of the city’s top chefs shop here for their ingredients. From the king crab that waved its claw at me to the scowling tuna, and from the gleaming vegetables to the heavenly scent of fresh white truffles, La Boqueria is a true feast for the senses.”
