Ruta de los Acantilados – the most beautiful views of the Costa Blanca

Costa Blanca the most beautiful views

Costa Blanca are mainly beaches – long and sandy ones – and so in this sense are some of the nicest on the southeastern coast of Spain. Unfortunately, most of the coast is developed with what in many cases are somewhat chaotically constructed buildings, with taller apartment blocks vying for nicer views.  However, there are also some jewels here and there, and for lovers of minimally more active breaks and beautiful scenery, the cliff walk – Ruta de los Acantilados – in Benitachell is one of them.

CĂłrdoba – another Spanish “must see”

Cordoba

My next trip to AndalucĂ­a is fast approaching. Im really looking forward to the Spanish spring, which I fondly remember from last year and fingers crossed that the weather will be just as good! Meanwhile, I’m yet to show you all of the places which we visited during our trip last year. This time, it’s Cordoba (undoubtedly another Spanish “must see”) and because many of you would have heard about it before, I’m going to keep the descriptions to a minimum.

Cáceres – one of the gems of Extremadura

Cáceres ExtremaduraI’m sitting here wrapped in a warm blanket, wondering what I should post next. I’ve accumulated a lot of material over the past months and there is a long list of great places which are waiting for their chance to be shown on my blog. What is hopefully the last bout of winter weather steers my thoughts to warm places, and this time it’s not AndalucĂ­a which springs to mind, but the somewhat warmer Extremadura – one of the hotter destinations I’ve been to in Spain.

Madrid on a budget

Madrid on a budget

Lately, I’ve come across numerous offers of cheap flights to Madrid and they’re especially low from autumn through to spring. It’d be a shame not to make the most of this, right? You can catch a flight to Madrid from many airports in Europe for less than €50. Of course, don’t get me wrong – you can spend all the money you have once you’re in Madrid – but it’s not at all necessary. I also think that a short trip to Madrid can turn out to be less expensive than say visiting Barcelona or other, super-popular European cities. I’m convinced that a pleasant weekend that doesn’t break your household budget is within reach and so I’ve prepared a few tips to you started.

Suances – The Cantabrian Coast

Suances - The Cantabrian CoastAfter two years of regular trips to Spain, I have noticed a strange change in my behavior – I have started to stop and talk to people. Its gotten to the stage, that as soon as I see someone with a guidebook or map at the airport or on the plane, I go up and speak to them. I then come to the realization, that a 3-hour flight is just not enough time to describe all of the places in Spain that are worth visiting, but which the average European knows little, or nothing about.
