VUELTA A ESPAÑA – A SPANISH TOUR

Here you will find a round trip around Spain, which includes many of the main locations you should not miss in a complete visit to the country. We started from Barcelona, driving through Calatayud, Toledo, via exploring several locations in Andalusía, down to Gibraltar, on the way back on the Costa del Sol, and back up to north via the coast.

As you might know our mission is to share something relevant, something authentic, something real, something cool, something interesting, something personal & something different, via our travel stories & images. We are focusing on ideas from local sources, giving tips that are usually unknown for travelers and foreigners, guides to secret places which only the guy from the given neighborhood could know about, to the hidden picturesque view, with recommending everything besides the obvious: the local real feel, the adventure of discovering the unknown, the authenticity, culinary guide to the meals that locals are really cooking and eating at home, and much more. Hope you will read our articles from our round trip around Spain, feel inspired and enjoy the journey, as much as we do!

Girona – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part XV.

This an article about Girona, a medieval city in the North of Catalonia you can not miss in a Spanish route.  Anna: Girona is located 99 km northeast of Barcelona city. It’s an ideal destination for a day-trip, but even for a weekend, it provides us with many interesting and historical places to visit. And…

Calpe – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part XIII.

Anna: I was gently forcing Dani to continue our way via Calpe. I have read a couple of nice reviews about this place and for the obvious, naturally given reason: The Rock of Ifach, I thought it would be a perfect place to have a break from driving and put our bodies into the refreshing…

Cádiz – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part VIII.

This is an article about a Cadiz tour, the last amazing city in the Spanish Peninsula. Anna: On our way to Cádiz from Jerez, Dani couldn’t stop singing in the car the famous song of Niña Pastori about Cai. “Niña caí se bebe el sol… Que hay en la brisa marinera… Y que remienda tu…

Gibraltar – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part VII.

It was a very normal morning in La Línea de la Concepción, neither hot nor cold. The sky was partially cloudy but you could guess that the sun could rise harder later in the day. The streets of the city had little traffic until he got visual contact with the sea. It is there where…

Ronda – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part VI.

We arrived to Ronda at siesta time. It is not a stereotype, it seemed to be true judging by how empty the streets of the historic centre of the city were, in full sun, around four in the afternoon. We did not think of spending a lot of time in the city and of course…

Espejo & Casares – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part IV.

This is an article about two amazing towns in Andalucia: Espejo and Casares. Anna: During those days I was in a big preparation and in a secret planning mood. We were already on the go for several days, and we still had many kilometres ahead of us. The lovely reason of my excitement was that…

Toledo – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part II.

Anna: We have decided to continue our trip into Toledo’s direction. Of course, you might have heard before about Toledo, so did I, but till that moment I haven’t had the chance to visit. And frankly (and sadly) speaking I didn’t know much about this city, that right after our visit I closed into my…

Calatayud – Vuelta a España, a Spanish tour. Part I.

Anna:  I can´t recall if I was ever waiting for any other trip that much as this one. I moved to Spain just three months before, and regardless of having the chance to travel a couple of times to Spain in the past and visiting a couple of obvious places, still the real country, the…
