Malaga & Seville

Malaga harbour, Spain

After leaving the sights of Valencia, we decided to take the easy option and book a flight with Ryanair from Valencia to Malaga.  In just over an hour we reached Malaga. As a lot of people in the summer time always opt to stay in the resorts of Torremolinos, Benalmadena we opted to spend our first  night/day in Malaga.  Malaga airport is a very modern airport with great train connections into the city centre or if you choose to go down the Costa del Sol. We hoped on the train and in less than an hour we reached Malaga city.  I was not expecting much of Malaga city but I really enjoyed it!

Malaga is a very cultural city very much influenced by the Moors to the Romans and down to the Christians.  You can see their influence with numerous buildings around Malaga.  Also Malaga is a great place to explore Granada  or Gibraltar. View details »

After our fabulous time in Barcelona, we hoped on a train and headed to Valencia.  I was really looking forward to Valencia as our main priority for coming here was to experience the La Tomatina festival (which happens the last Wednesday every August). After 4 hours and 30 minutes we arrived in Valencia train station.  I was not ready for the heat of Valencia at 22:00 at night and it was still 37 degrees! Tip if you are staying in a hotel or an apartment make sure you have Air conditioning!After finding our apartment we headed out to experience the night life of Valencia. If you are into your architecture you will really love Valencia! Again there is little cobbled streets with plenty of restaurants, we sat down in a restaurant in the main street and got a quick bite to eat. View details »

After years of wanting to travel to Barcelona, I eventually made it last August 2010.  After our flight we headed for the exit doors. There are buses that will take you into the city centre but we opted for the easier option and hopped in a taxi.  Be warned if you get a taxi it will cost you at least €25 plus they will charge you for each suitcase aswell! On arrival at our hotel we dropped our bags and headed out to explore the surrounding area. For our first night we opted to stay at a hotel near Nou Camp.  The location is about ten minutes back into the centre of Barcelona but has a great location if you want to take in a Barcelona match but the metro line will bring you back in again to the city centre.
