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!

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”

It will take you at least 14 days to complete, but if you want to make some stops on the way, you’ll have to add a couple of days. For more information: Thames Path
