Souvenirs of Nerja

I fell in love with the Costa del Sol...

I thought it was just
sun, sand and flamenco

but I discovered
dramatic mountain scenery,

Moorish history

and orange groves.

You can sit in the sunshine in Granada at lunchtime

and then drive across the hills

back to the sea

and the bustle of the promenade.

Nerja, I'm missing you already.

Roll on next year.

  2. An eye opener. My son had a T-shirt once with Nerja on it. Now I know what it means. A great winter destination.

  4. We loved it there too - once we ventured away from the main touristy parts. It's such a lovely part of the world. I once worked with a scientist who hailed from the University of Malaga who recommended places to visit on our holidays. Glorious.

  11. I think that's the thing about Spain -- it's more interesting than you'd think.

  12. Oh! I am having a big bloggy catch up after being away after Christmas, and I see you have been having Interesting Times and Grand Adventures!

    Very happy for you, and slightly jealous :)
