Sevilla was our last stop in Spain before we crossed over in to Portugal and what a way it was to finish our eight week Spanish adventure.

I don’t know whether we weren’t in the mood the day we visited Murcia or if we’d had a bit too much vino the night before, but Continue reading Over-hyped or just hungover?
Everyone’s been to Alicante, right? Or at least knows someone that has been?
It’s one of Spain’s biggest tourist traps, particularly as it’s one of the main gateway’s to the Costa Blanca. I half expected it to be full of expats and almost a bit too touristy, but I was pleasantly surprised.

We arrived in Valencia much sooner than expected. At least, I think we thought we did, if that makes sense?
Let me explain… Continue reading The City of Arts & Sciences, and the Holy Grail
