5 May, 2017 in Malaga

Malaga is on the coastline and has a port, and so once you’re done roaming around the hilltop castles and the old city you can head to one of the marinas nearby and catch a boat-trip to take you out to sea and see a different view of Malaga. Palmeral De Las Sorpresas is the newly […]

One of the nicest surprises for me in Seville was a Flamenco show I caught with the Museo del Baile Flamenco. Although it is meant for tourists, and you might expect cliche, as far as I can tell this was a very well done show, with some very impressive local artists. It gave a very good intro […]

Didn’t have nearly enough time to explore beautiful Seville, but I did manage to see many of the highlights, with a walking tour around the old city and the very grand Plaza de Espana. The old city is a very big area surrounding the Iglesia del Salvador cathedral, and you could easily spend several hours roaming […]

Lots of great areas to explore and attractions to visit in Malaga, but to me the number one attraction – by far – was the Castillo de Gibralfaro. It’s right at the center, and quite a hike up the mountain, but the views of Malage and the bay from above are absolutely spectacular and then, ofcourse, […]

Seville took me a bit by surprise. It was much larger and much more impressive than I envisioned. Lots of attractions to visit, and the busy old town area was terrific. One of the famous attractions in Seville is the Royal Alcazar, a UNESCO heritage site palace built by the Moorish kings and used by various royalty […]

To get your bearings in a new place or just to get a feel for a city’s beautiy, it’s best to find a good spot to see the city from above. Tall skyscrapers, mountain tops, observation decks, and, ferris wheels. On my visit to Malaga I went up the Noria Mirador Princess ferris wheel to see beautiful […]

Following my visit to Malaga, I rented a car and decided to go up to Seville through the white villages up in the mountains, first visiting Ronda, and then making a quick stop in Zahara. The highlight of Zahara is the mountain top Castillo de Zahara de la Sierra with panoramic breathtaking views of the whole […]

Visited Spain during holiday time to warm up a bit. After starting my adventures at Malaga, I rented a car and headed up the mountains north-west through the white villages and cliff-hanging towns – Ronda and Zahara – to finally arrive at Seville. Although I was unprepared about Seville and had very limited time, some of my […]

The road up is long and winding through some beautiful mountainous coastal […]

29 Dec, 2016 in Malaga, Visions

Visited Spain during holiday time to warm up a bit, starting my adventures in the southern city of Malaga. It’s a charming coastal town, with an imposing fortress on a hilltop overlooking the entire region, with some picturesque mountains in the background. The entire center has been cleared for pedestrians and is filled with bars, […]
