14 Jan, 2018 in Granada

This summer I finally had the opportunity to visit Granada in Spain with a conference taking place in the area. I roamed the city in the little time I had before and after the conference, some with conference organized tours (which I rarely do). Granada met and exceeded my expectations, with one of the main highlight being […]

This summer I finally had the opportunity to visit Granada in Spain with a conference taking place in the area. I roamed the city in the little time I had before and after the conference, some with conference organized tours (which I rarely do).

30 Aug, 2017 in Malaga

Last Christmas I had the pleasure of visiting the lovely Spanish Malaga. Lots to see and do in the city, and I managed to see most of the main highlights, the old historic center,  Palmeral De Las Sorpresas with a boat trip, Castillo de Gibralfaro, and even Noria Mirador Princess ferris wheel. But the biggest attractions of […]

27 Aug, 2017 in Granada

I’ve been to southern Spain before, touring Malaga, Seville, and other gorgeous cities in the area, but haven’t made it to Granada and have been meaning to go back. This summer I finally had the golden opportunity with a conference taking place in the region, and so I could roam the city before and after […]

Valencia Old Center Spain-001

A while back I made a quick 2 day visit to Valencia in Spain. The last post summarizing this visit is about the lovely old center. Lovely Spanish architecture, lively markets, parks and gardens, cathedrals and museums, and plenty of great places to eat and drink. I spent about a day roaming around the center […]

15 Jul, 2017 in Barcelona

Barcelona is an exciting vibrant city, with lots of tourist attractions, but perhaps the most famous of those is the La Sagrada Familia, which has been under renovations for ages. It’s not the only cathedral worth visiting, and in the Gothic quarter is the Cathedral of Barcelona which had lots of open markets and artists […]

1 Jul, 2017 in Southern Spain

Between Malaga and Seville up in the mountains and close to national parks (Sierra de las Nieves and Sierra de Grazalema) is the lovely old town of Ronda. Dating back to the 9th century BC (yes, BC, not AD), it’s one of the region’s oldest towns and has seen all conquerors and rulers. The mountainous […]

28 Jun, 2017 in Malaga

To wrap up the visit to Malaga, no summary is complete without mentioning the old historic center. The apartment I had was very close to the center, and so I had plenty of opportunities, day and night, to walk around and explore. It’s quite lovely, all pedestrian area, lots of cool restaurants and bars, with […]

5 Jun, 2017 in Madrid

Madrid has long been on my TODO list, but it was only the end of last year around holiday time that I finally made it. Since it was the holidays, most of the things in Spain were closed, but I was able to visit a few attractions that were open, and perhaps the most famous of […]

14 May, 2017 in Madrid

Toledo is a gorgeous mountain-top fortified city with a very rich history dating back the 2nd century BC, passing through the hands of many different regional powers. One of the fascinating things to see in Toledo is how they’ve built on this history to boost up tourism, and one of the prime examples is the local […]
