Cartagena, one of the finest ports in the Mediterranean

The city of Cartagena had it’s heyday during the Roman Empire and it was one of the most important naval ports in Spain. It has the most amazing Roman Theatre and a plethora of amazing Art Nouveau buildings as a result of the bourgeoisie and we saw it all.

Just watching the world go by in Cudillero

The cute little cobble roads lead up through the houses where everywhere you turn you just have to get out your camera. Surrounded by flowers, it really is the prettiest place. As you pass all the rows of little houses, local Spanish ladies sit outside their doors all day just watching the world go by.

Girona – Catalan gem with a French feel

It’s often overlooked as people head to the nearby beaches of Costa Brava. Which is a shame, as I think its well worth stopping to explore what Girona has to offer. It’s a charming city brimming with history and culture and has a little bit of a French feel. Not really surprising seeing as Girona is just 140km from the Spain/France border.

Our Route France to Spain

As short drive away from Gallocanta, is one of Spain’s most beautiful villages. If it had a body like France’s Les Plus Beaux Villages, then Albarracín would most definitely be on it. From the motorway, much like so many places, you can’t imagine what it would be like and you are almost tempted to by-pass it, although the 20 minute deviation is definitely worthy of your turning wheels.

We Camped Spain!

Going on a vacation to anywhere (especially overseas) can be a completely stressful and expensive endeavor leading up to and during the vacation. Tickets are always a little too expensive, decent hotels are hard to find, and there’s always those arguments of what you want to do/see and if you have the time to do it.

We decided that we were going to scratch just about all of that, and go on a little more unconventional vacation to experience a taste of Spain.
