Country No. 40 – Andalucia, Espana!
Despite only being next door, I had yet to visit Spain. Perpetually put off by the chavs that tend to frequent the beach resorts and easy jet flights, Andalucia did a good job of changing my preconceptions.
The beautiful hillside town of Mijas with its whitewashed buildings
Driving to the beautiful Embalse del conde de guadalhorce – a lake region north of Malaga.
Stunning town of Ronda divided in two by a 100+ metre canyon
Also famous for its bullring.
There’s more to the Costa del Sol than Malaga and Marbella. Avoid the cast of TOWIE and venture out of the main tourist beachside towns or just head inland. Truly beautiful places to explore!
