Travel Diaries: Andalusia & Gibraltar

15. December 2016

One of my favourite countries to visit is Spain, where I find my peace of mind. Not only because of its beauty, but the food is divine and the people is the best. And when in Andalusia go visit Gibraltar, between british way of life and mediteranian weather. 

Usually we fly to Spain in November. It is a way to flee winter and enjoy the sun (this time you can expect sunny 22C, felt temperature of over 28-33C), go for swim in the atlantic ocean and visit the beautiful small villages, trying the famous spanish wines, cheese and food.

Our favourite hotel is in Costa de la luz in the little village of Conil de la Frontera, Hotel Gran Conil. The village alone is amazing, the white houses all around and the long beaches, quite empty in November is worth the visit. From there you can go on a 45min bus ride to Cadiz, the capital – why the bus? Because in this way you can enjoy the little trip, as you get to see a lot of the country side.

From there you can go on a trip to Gibraltar as well. Gibraltar has always fascinated me, I even wrote my theses about it! A british overseas territory marked by many wars between the British and Spaniards fighting for the control over the Rock. A beautiful place, the airport is the main street of the city, which closes every now and then for airplanes to land. It always fun to see the apes (Babary macaques) of Gibraltar, the legend says that as long as there are apes in Gibraltar, it will be British – so no need to worry GB, the apes are doing great, having loads of babies. Oh, but watch your bags: if they get interested in it, they will try to get it from you!

On the way back, there is the beautiful city of Tarifa! From there you can look at Morocco, you can almost touch it… so beautiful!

I am looking forward to our next trip there. I still have to visit Seville, the villages of Ronda and a short trip to Morocco!

What is your favourite vacation destiny? And what are the places of interest over there?
