Leave It to a Top Chef Judge to Craft the Perfect Spanish Getaway

Travel and Leisure - Sun, 06/24/2018 - 15:01
<p>Gail Simmons, television personality and author of the new cookbook Bringing It Home, first visited Spain almost two decades ago. "I studied in the south when I was 21, and always wanted to go back to that part of the country with my husband, Jeremy," she says. When the couple learned in September that they were expecting a second child, they planned a getaway with their four-year-old daughter, Dahlia, combining city strolls in Madrid and Seville with resort relaxation in Málaga. "Especially in Andalusia, the gastronomy is so simple and beautiful," says Simmons, who kept Dahlia on East Coast time so that they could experience Spain's late-night dining culture as a trio. "We'd take her on a tapas crawl and let her sleep late. She is a great traveler. I love the fact that she has no fear."</p><img alt="Fina Cortesía resort, in Malaga "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1528224509/finca-cortesin-spain-GAILSPAIN0618.jpg?itok=AkOGvYG1"><p>"We landed in Madrid on Christmas Day. It was a magical time to be there—the holiday lights in Spain blow away any on Fifth Avenue in New York. That day we went to the city's oldest churro shop, <a href="http://chocolateriasangines.com">Chocolatería San Ginés</a>. It's a wonderland. The chocolate is so rich, and they have this amazingly decadent cake. My daughter got way into it, of course. In Málaga, we stayed at <a data-ecommerce="true" href="https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g1055348-d1085965-Reviews-Finca_Cortesin_Hotel_Golf_Spa-Casares_Costa_del_Sol_Province_of_Malaga_Andalucia.html">Finca Cortesin</a> (above), a resort unlike any I know. It's up in the hills, with stunning views. We'd spend every morning in the pool—Dahlia could swim for hours."</p><img alt="Gail Simmons and daughter on vacation in Spain, at Casa de Pilatos "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1528224509/gail-casa-de-pilatos-GAILSPAIN0618.jpg?itok=zS9VUCWr"><p>"Our last stop was Seville, which is just as wonderful as I remember—there's so much to explore. It's full of Moorish buildings and beautiful homes. We loved touring <a href="http://fundacionmedinaceli.org">Casa de Pilatos</a> (above), a 16th-century palace with incredible gardens. We'd often go to tapas bars like <a href="http://salsamento.com">Salsamento</a> and get tins of anchovies or sardines, a little cheese, and chorizo or jamón. It's the perfect traditional Spanish lunch."</p>

You Can See More Varieties of Cacti in the Chihuahuan Desert Than Anywhere Else

Travel and Leisure - Sun, 06/24/2018 - 12:01
<p>The Chihuahuan Desert is the most biologically diverse desert in the Western Hemisphere, and one of the most diverse in the world. Over 175,000 square miles spanning northern Mexico, southwestern Texas, and southern New Mexico and Arizona, the desert is home to more than 1,000 species of plants and animals.</p><p>Back in the 1800s, the desert itself was covered in tall grass, but due to overgrazing, agriculture and oil drilling, only the species of plants that have been able to survive the harsh conditions remain.</p><p>Visitors to the <a href="https://www.newmexico.org/listing/chihuahuan-desert-nature-park/1947/" target="_blank">Chihuahuan Desert</a> can enjoy long hikes to find rare plants and animals; the desert is home to <a href="https://www.nps.gov/whsa/learn/nature/cacti.htm" target="_blank">more species of cacti</a> than anywhere else. <a href="https://www.nps.gov/whsa/learn/nature/upload/Native_Plants_of_the_Northern_Chihuahuan_Desert_-2-9MB_PDF.pdf" target="_blank">According to the National Park Service</a>, the claret cup cactus, which blooms in late spring, can grow up to five feet in diameter with dozens of crimson-colored flowers.</p><p>However, since the Chihuahuan Desert is actually a “shrub desert” you might not see as many cacti as you would elsewhere, so spotting a flowering cactus can be a rare treat.</p><img alt="Chihuahuan Desert "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1528919144/chisos-mountains-Chihuahuan-Desert-CHIDES0618.jpg?itok=EoAZ-M03"><p>The desert is also home to the dunes sagebrush lizard, an increasingly disappearing species of lizard that lives in the sandy dunes. The <a href="https://www.biologicaldiversity.org/programs/public_lands/deserts/chihuahuan_desert/index.html" target="_blank">Center for Biological Diversity</a> is currently petitioning for the reptile to be officially protected as an endangered species.</p><p>The Chihuahuan desert only receives about 36 to 48 inches of rain annually, usually between July and October. The summers tend to be extremely hot and the winters are very cold, so the best time to visit the desert in the fall and spring. Springtime especially is best for seeing plants in full bloom. However, travelers should be ready for a variety of weather conditions.</p>
