Find a beautiful place, and get lost {Spain Travel Diary}

Hi guys,

After a busy and emotional weekend (Alex and I went to our hometown for our high-school 10 years reunion), I'm back with a new post!

Today I'm sharing some pictures from the day we visited Malaga. We started the day by visiting the Alcazaba, a beautiful palatial fortification. Going there in the morning was the best decision because we were the only ones there, so we got to explore it at our own pace, without it being filled with tourists.

Afterwards, we went to meet out guide for the walk-and-talk tour that we had booked. Since we only had half a day to visit the city's historic center, we thought that a guided tour would be the best use of our time in Malaga, and we were right! Victor, our guide, was super funny and we had such a great time walking around the streets with him, learning some things about the city of Malaga and tasting some of the local food. He took us to eat chocolate and churros (a local specialty), and to the Atarazanas market where we tasted everything from bacon, cheese, to almonds, olives and many other yummy stuff. After the tour was over, we went back to Atarazanas to eat some extremely tasty tapas. The food in Malaga was definitely one of the best from the entire holiday.

Having satisfied our appetite, we then went to the Malaga Automobile Museum: more than 90 amazing cars together with design and fashion items, displayed in such a way as to show how the society has progressed and how cars and fashion have always shared the love for beauty. The museum is a must if you go to Malaga!

I hope you'll enjoy the photos and I'll soon come back with more!

Have a great week!

Old places have soul {Spain Travel Diary}

Hi guys,

To continue with the travel diary, today I'm sharing photos from two amazing places: Zahara and Ronda.

Both are captivating and definitely worth visiting (we went there while we were staying in Benalmadena, as they are pretty near- a bit over 100 km).

Situated on a rocky hill, Zahara looks as if it has been taken out of a fairy tale. With its white houses and beautiful narrow streets, this small quiet town is simply charming. You can visit the old castle that used to be a Moorish outpost and you'll be welcomed by some pretty spectacular views over the turquoise waters of the Zahara-el Gastor reservoir.

After spending some time in Zahara, we went forward to visit another gorgeous place, Ronda. Ronda is one of the most beautiful and visited cities in Spain. And my Gosh, we were blown away by its old-town area.  I feel so lucky to have been able to visit a place with such an historic charm and out-of-this-world views. Ronda's most famous attraction is El Tajo gorge. This gorge practically breaks the city in half, the two parts being linked by El Puente Nuevo. I can't even begin to describe how stunning this place is- while I was there it felt like I was on the set of a sci-fi movie. It took my breath away!

I could go on for hours talking about these two beautiful places, but I guess the pictures say it far better than I ever could.

Many hugs! Have a wonderful week!

It is a big and beautiful world... {Spain Travel Diary}

"It is a big and beautiful world. Most of us live and die in the same corner where we were born and never get to see any of it. I don’t want to be most of us." Oberyn Martell, Game of Thrones, Season 4

Hi guys,

As most of you already know, I am a huuuge Game of Thrones fan. Visiting the Seville Alcazar was a dream come true, one of the reasons being that a few scenes from Season 5 had been filmed there. Now that I see these places on TV, it feels surreal that I've actually been there.

Those of you who watched the last episode of GOT (ep. 9) might recognize some details in the photos below. As for the others, I'm sure you'll find the Alcazar equally as beautiful! You will notice the same amazing Moorish mosaics that I was talking about in the previous post, the stunning architecture and the beautiful gardens.

I hope you'll enjoy the pictures.
