Just back from… Andalucía

dest-spain

Last night I returned from my first ever trip to mainland Spain. I know, I know, what took me so long? It may have been 27 years in the making, but Spain was worth the wait. We spent the week in Villanueva del Trabuco, a beautiful white-washed village lying at the base of the Gorda and San Jorge mountains in Andalucía where my mum and dad have just bought a cute little townhouse. Happy retirement, Dad! An absolutely stunning part of the world, we used their house as a base to explore as much of the region as we could. The first of what I’m sure will be many visits, I spent most of the week in a lovestruck stupor as Andalucía bewitched me with its olive grove-etched countryside, endless mountain ranges and cities brimming with fascinating history, architectural magnificence and sensational food.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing several posts about Andalucía, but for now here’s a few photo highlights as I mourn the end of an amazing week. There are far too many highlights to include in one post, so you can find more pictures on my Facebook page. Until next time, Andalucía .
