Back from Andalusia

I am back from a well earned and thoroughly needed vacation. This time my wife and I did a long wished trip to Andalusia to have a look at all the Moorish influenced monuments and stuff. This was also something on our bucket list, so the Alhambra in Granada and Mezquita in Cordoba are now crossed out :)

It was a very nice experience, we planned the trip ourselves (after getting some offers from agencies which were incredible expensive) and went with a rental car and tent on a round trip to Andalusia. For cost saving reasons we started in Madrid (flights and rental cars were much cheaper there) and accepted the 4 hours drive to Granada. We had then 11 days to to all the crazy sight-seeing and driving around including some hiking trips and where blown away by the differences and the strong Arabic influences in this region. In Granada we even saw signs to the monuments in Arabic!

Our tour was like: Madrid  Granada & Capileira  Torre del Mar & Malaga  Grazalema & Ronda Sevilla  Cordoba  Madrid. So it was quite a hardcore tour ;) Especially since we tried to get to all of the monuments and cathedrals possible. I think we did every day some kind of a 15 - 20 km walking trip.

We made zillions of pictures (ok only 1100) and have to sort all the impressions and stuff now. So I think I will make another post with some of the pictures from the trip.

Was it worth it? Absolutely!
Hope you all also had a good time the last 3 weeks :)


So long,

  1. Hummm; A list of places I'd like to see. Interested to note your price/long drive comparison. With small people of five and eight, I might plumb to splash the cash, but have no idea what long distance drives in Spain are like (?). Looking forward to your (edited) picts.

    1. So "long" distance drives are pretty fair. No problem at all. The cities are more of a problem because of the parking situation and the sometimes very chaotic road system (Madrid I look at you!). This is why we stayed at our camping place and took buses into the cities. Makes things so much easier and is cheaper in the end (guarded parking places are really expensive).

      The sum of savings for the flight and the car rent where nearly the car rent for our car. Nothing to shake off easily.
