Why Malaga is a perfect Andalusian getaway

I always thought Malaga was one of those destinations in Spain where people go to for the nice weather, the sea and the parties. While you can definitely find these in Malaga, the city has so much more to offer! I was surprised by it’s beauty and really think this is could be a perfect place to explore part of the wonderful Andalusia. The airport has lots of connections and is only 6 km from the city itself. Malaga has a train station that connects with other destinations in Spain. I’ll share a couple of things I did during my three-day stay in the city.

Impressions of Jaén and Cordoba

After visiting Almeria and Granada I had one day to explore the region of Jaén and another to visit Cordoba. This might seem like a very short time, nevertheless I’ve managed to get a good impression of both, without having to run from one place to another. Also this time I decided to stay in a hostel. This one was really great! Very good value for little money. The only issue we had on the first day of my arrival was to find dinner. Apparently it was a local holiday so pretty much anything nearby was closed. For the two evenings (I stayed here to explore Granada as well) we ate at Bomborombillos. This place is so great! Our waiter was very friendly and advised us some good tapas and products from the area. We had fantastic and local food for a great price, definitely a recommendation!  Continue reading “Impressions of Jaén and Cordoba”

15 pictures to inspire you to visit Granada

From Almeria, I moved on to Granada, where I spent two days. I needed a full day in the Alhambra, which was so much more beautiful than I’ve imagined. The second day I explored Granada itself. The city gives a Moroccan feel, I’ve never been there but it just felt like that. Tiny streets, white houses. Lots of little stores with spices displayed outside. Very lively, and so beautiful! Don’t forget your European Youth card for discounts. Continue reading “15 pictures to inspire you to visit Granada”

Travel Inspiration found among my favorite travel bloggers.

This post is meant to give you (and me) some travel inspiration for the coming year(s). Honestly on my list are too many things and I just keep adding places. That and the fact that I have major difficulties with making choices makes me constantly wonder where to travel next. Secondly I also like to share a few blogs I really enjoy reading/following, hoping I can convince you to do the same! For the moment I am going to share five great bloggers with you, perhaps I do a second round in a few weeks. Continue reading “Travel Inspiration found among my favorite travel bloggers.”

Almeria in pictures

As I told you, three weeks ago I went to the beautiful Andalusia in Spain! (read about it here) My first stop was in Almeria! I only stayed here for a brief two days, nevertheless I’ve gotten an impression and I really liked it here. It wasn’t that easy to find the hostel though, but eventually we did, luckily. Andalusia seems to be an ideal holiday for anyone on a budget, I stayed in the hostel for only 15 euros a night, breakfast included! Dinner was about 7 to 10 euros drinks included, so really not expensive. Of course I was travelling of season, which might have had something to do with it. Continue reading “Almeria in pictures”

Frangipane pie with quince and red fruit

This weekend we celebrated my father’s birthday! Since I occasionally feel like baking or cooking I decided to make him a birthday pie. I was searching on the internet for something I hadn’t tried before and came upon the frangipane pie with quince! Quince is usually a less known fruit, I know it because we grow it in our garden. It is good for your digestion, so each year my father makes jam and syrup of them when it is the right time. Continue reading “Frangipane pie with quince and red fruit”

The Greatest Of These

A beautiful post by Julie from Emotionalpeace!

1 Corinthians 13:13 (NKJV) And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

This I Pray

     From beginning to end the Bible is about the love of God. God even showed Cain love after he killed his brother Abel. God was merciful to him by putting a mark on him to keep others from killing Cain. Jacob deceives his father and steals his brothers blessing, and God gives him a new name and he becomes Israel. Saul has Christians killed and on the road to Damascus he is blinded by God, and when God returns his sight he becomes Paul.

In the commandments God forbids adultery and murder but David has an affair with Bathsheba. When he learns that she is pregnant with his child he tries to cover up their affair. When he fails, he sends her husband out to be killed in battle. Does…
